Monique -
You're right. You need a headshot. The image you post would perhaps be better described as a snapshot of your face or head.
What do I think? You look like you're rather attractive. You might - if you're organized, responsible, committed, and persistant - find modeling, if not a lucrative profession, an enjoyable avocation.
If you're asking what do I think you need to improve about the headshot, well ... you might take a look on-line at some professional head-shots. Search here, for example. A headshot is usually a clear, relatively straightforward representation of the subject, used to decide whether her/his features are suitable. I'm not going to make specific criticisms, because I have no example to post. But I do suggest you work with a photographer to get a more suitable image.
Good luck to you.
Welcome to G1.

You need to find someone who can take a professional photo. Camera phone photos (or those that look like they were made on a camera phone) don't work very well. Also, direct eye contact, for your primary head shot is often desirable as it is more personable. Even lighting without hot spots is also a must. The unfortunate reality of modeling is that those that might hire a model will often judge the model by the quality of the photos she presents. Present bad photos, and you don't get the job. So that is why you need a good photographer to take the shot. Also watch for good grooming, proper make-up, no straps twisted, and so forth. Also it is not wise for your primary head shot to have the top of the head cropped off (after all you don't want them to think you're hiding a bald spot).

Whether your head shot was done with a camera phone, a disposable film camera or a discount department store digital camera, you would be better off to work with a professional photographer for some quality images.

What do you think?

Artforms,

Though this is not neccessarily a headshot in my opinion it's a nice shot. I agree with RFS in putting your best foot forward. I look around ******** and see lots of My Space type photos that work for family and friends, but won't attract someone looking for a muse.

msaviez,

You're in the right place for pointers and we all look forward to seeing an updated headshot soon.

I think you will appreciate the vast improvement when you get your new image done. Come back and post it when you have it completed.
