GOOD UNPROFESSIONAL/PHONE PICTURE: This is a good example of an acceptable photo that is not professional and done quickly. **PLEASE NOTE: In order to make the photo looks it's best we suggest you dress to impress & do your hair/makeup beforehand.

EXAMPLES OF UNACCEPTABLE PHOTOS: Talent should not be wearing hoods, extravagant jewelry, sunglasses, ETC in their photos.
