What Makes a Good Profile Photo?

One of the most important parts of your Tasker profile is your photo, as it's one of the first things that potential Clients see.

We encourage you to consider the following when choosing yours.

Subject

Clients want to see you in your profile photo, so they know who they're welcoming into their homes. 

Successful photos:

  • Are a headshot of just you—no one else!—from the chest up.
  • Have you in the center, smiling at the camera.
  • Have your eyes visible and gazing straight at the camera.

Lighting

Lighting is often the most important part of any photo.

Successful photos:

  • Have light shining onto your face.
  • Have your face be as bright as (or brighter than) the background.
  • Be in focus and have your face be clear of hair, hats, shadows, or anything else!

Setting

Busy backgrounds can distract from the photo’s main subject—which should be you.  

Successful photos:

  • Are shot against neutral backdrops that aren’t too busy.
  • Have you as the focus, so what’s around you isn’t a distraction.
  • Are shot in a “work appropriate” setting. Remember: You're trying to advertise your professional business, so your photo should reflect that!
