Head and shoulder pictures March 8

Portraits done painlessly at the upcoming CALS head & shoulders photo studio session on Wednesday, March 8 from noon to 2:30 p.m. in room 38, Agricultural Hall.

You need these pictures in so many ways – websites, LinkedIn accounts, conference programs and posters, departmental directory, UW Experts database, Facebook, and other social media. For example, this is what we mean:

The session is first-come, first-serve and is open to CALS faculty, staff, and graduate students. Here’s how it works: show up looking your best, sign in, get your picture taken, and in a few days you’ll be notified by email your picture is ready on CALS Flickr ( Download and share as you please from there. CALS needs these pictures, too. But so if you’re shy about our use of your picture on Flickr, you’re excused from this awesome opportunity.

Some advice to keep it painless: wear a 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; just saying. Makeup that reduces shiny skin also is useful. Try to avoid garish, loud, and busy. That tropical print shirt from Hawaii? Probably not you best bet.

See you Wednesday, March 8 from noon to 2:30 p.m. in room 38, Agricultural Hall.
