A good-looking CV photo has become essential to stand out from the crowd of recruiters!

Your CV photo will be the first thing your potential future employer looks at. Above all, it should reflect your personality, or at least the image you want to project in a professional context.

No more quick snapshots taken with your best friend’s phone while on vacation. It’s time to take matters into your own hands and give yourself every chance of landing the job of your dreams.

My Shooting Photo offers you a free 30-minute professional CV photo shoot in 15 cities and on location.


Stand out from the crowd with an outdoor photo shoot

In the past, the norm for professional CV photos was a studio shoot with a neutral background: white, black or gray. Today, however, you’ll want to opt for something a little more « original ». But « original » doesn’t mean going off in all directions!

In fact, the current trend is towards « relaxed » portraiture, while retaining a serious side.

Having your photo taken outside can give you that slightly offbeat feel. This will help you stand out from other candidates who have opted for the traditional studio photo shoot. You’ll be showing your uniqueness through this portrait.


How should you dress for your professional CV photo shoot?

First of all, choose clothes you’re comfortable in. Bear in mind that this photo will be taken for your potential future employer.

Your choice of clothing style will also depend on the public image of your company.

For example: if you’re applying for a bank, a suit with shirt and tie or a tailored suit will be de rigueur.

If, on the other hand, you want to join a start-up with a young, dynamic spirit, opt for a more casual outfit, such as jeans and a polo shirt, or a pretty dress.

For men, a good shave and/or well-trimmed beard are essential. This will show your commitment to the shoot, and therefore your seriousness.

For women, tying back your hair will enhance the feeling of rigor and precision. On the other hand, loosening your hair will show your sympathy and make you look younger.

In order, here’s what recruiters will be looking for:


1) Your qualifications: Do you have the right qualifications for the job?

2) Your experience: What positions have you held before applying?

3) Your motivation: Are you determined to get the job, and why?

Your superb CV photo will demonstrate your motivation. Your recruiter will immediately see that it’s been taken by a professional photographer, and will know that you’re the kind of person who puts all the chances on your side.

Your photo must be able to define you in some way. Your outfit and, above all, your expression will say a lot about your personality.

In any case, the most important thing is to be yourself. We can help you in your quest for the perfect photo by avoiding certain mistakes. An image that will put you at the top of the CV pile received by the human resources manager!
