Hey offend faceless picture here and I`m not defending myself!
My advise regarding pictures,
You need to take hundreds of photo`s before you like a few, I suggest practise a pose in front of the mirror, (remember to practice a smile, or a frown depending on the look your going for,) find a stand for the camera, put on the delay, if you can place a mirror behind the camera, so you can get the right pose, and snap away, you will eventually find out what works and what does not. Remember the angle and height of the camera can radically alter what you look like. Practice makes perfect. Also remember not to rush your photo time, a quick picture looks like a quick picture. Spend time grooming yourself before hand, find the correct outfit, maybe pump some iron before hand to exacerbate muscle definition.
