Hello Eunice Gates,
A good headshot? Easy, but I won’t go there, hahaha.
A pro would get you the best; but, until then, an off center view with the camera at the level of your face. Take a few shots, or many, then choose.
It is true that this is something you will use many times, so the pro route is a great idea.
Hi Eunice. Invest the time and money in finding a good professional photographer with experience working with models. I’ve done a bit of professional modeling working with several photographers and so making sure that you pay for and get ‘full rights’ to your photos is an important consideration. Then you will have great shots that you can use at your discretion.
I hope that this helps.
