Get a head & shoulders portrait on Wednesday, Sept. 21

Your mug is in demand. Every conference, web site, Linkedn account, brochure, proceedings, and departmental directory demands a likeness of you. Even Facebook and other social media cry out for a good picture of your face.

To help you meet the demand, CALS will offer a head & shoulders photo studio session Wednesday, Sept. 21 in room 38 Agriculture Hall from 1:30 to 4:00 P.M. It’s your chance to spiffy up and get that head & shoulders picture you know you need. By way of example, this is what we mean:

The session is first-come, first-served and is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students. Think of it as portraits made painless. This is how it works: show up looking your best, sign in, get your picture taken, in a few days you’ll be notified by email your picture is ready on the CALS Flickr ( Download and share as you please from there. CALS will maintain your picture on its Flickr for use when you win that big award and an image is needed for your adoring public, for example.

Some advice for the most painless portraits: wear long sleeve solid color shirt or blouse. A button up shirt or blouse with collar open at the neck is most flattering. Cameras love blue if you have something. Makeup that reduces shinny skin also is useful. Try to avoid garish, loud, and busy. If you show up wearing a completely inappropriate tee shirt we may send you home. But that never happens.
