II. Tips for How to Take a Good Photo


1. Please make sure photos show the full head and shoulders.

2. Please NO group photos, we will not be able to identify who is who.

3. If a photo can be seen clearly on a computer full screen (laptop screen size is good enough). Great!

If it doesn't this may have an effect on the person's likeness as this photo will be our only reference.


4. To get the most out of the caricature please send clear photographs in good lighting. 

Please see examples below. 


Don't forget to smile!

4. Why are you asking me about my gender and age on the Image Upload Form?

Since we are not physically in front of our customers, we want to make sure we do our best to capture our subjects accurately. Age and gender mishaps in a drawing can be embarrassing for both the artist and the recipients of the drawing, so specifying the age range and gender of each person helps us get it right the first time. We care about our customers, and while we cannot engage and interact with each customer as we have normally been able to do at our physical stand, we still want to produce a great product that our customers and their family and friends can enjoy for a long time.
