Getting Started with Photofeeler
Not sure how to get started? Follow this helpful guide to taking your own headshots and editing them – a tripod/stack of books, a camera with a timer, and a blank wall for the background is all you need to begin. Once you have some photos taken, you’ll want to edit them and there are a number of free, easy to use photo editors you use to do this. Once your free account is set up you will be asked to survey other profile photos to earn credits. Once you have ten credits earned you can have your photo submitted for review and the results emailed to you. If you don’t want to review other profiles and quickly move on you can buy credits which is where Photofeeler makes their profit. The reviewing process took less then 3 minutes, a small price to pay to have your agent headshot reviewed for free.
