YOUR FOOD LOOKS GOOD. DO YOU?

Your profile picture is the first impression of you as a Cook. A great photo will help set your profile up for success and get you more bookings! 

What does a good profile photo look like? It should be friendly, inviting and clear.

Follow these guidelines so your profile photo can be approved and made visible to Hosts.

DO's 

  • Profile photos should clearly identify the you and not include anyone else

  • Use a current photo that accurately represents who you are today so a Host can easily recognize you upon arrival to their home

  • Choose a photo that is friendly and inviting - a smiling headshot is perfect!

  • Pick a well-lit photo that shows your entire face, chin to forehead with clear view of your eyes - avoid wearing sunglasses or hats

  • A photo that shows you as a cook is a bonus!

DONT's 

  • Don't include other people in the picture - leave out co-workers, children, family members, etc. 

  • Don't choose that party animal or controversial picture of you - there are many other sites where you can use those photos ;)

  • Don't be too far away in the picture - Hosts won't be able to recognize you if you're too far away!

  • Don't use heavy filters that distort the way you look - you know the snapchat photos we're talking about

  • Don't take selfies in mirrors
