To pose or not to pose, that is the question...

Real Estate Agent with Merlo Real Estate Group 261716

I have not quite familiarized myself with the "pose"...if I am losing those of you out there; I am referring to the "real estate pose" for portraits/pictures. I was truly torn with either the straight smiling pose, or the angled side profile pose, or the spectacular whole profile pose (didn't know how important this actually was). I researched long and hard, read tons of online information for the "right pose" and I am still challenged as to what will really work.

If any of you out there can help me, I would really appreciate it...in the meantime I will work on the "selling pose".

I don't have it either.  I have even gone so far as to download copies of other realtor's poses that I like.  In my family "strike a pose" always meant throw your hands in the air and smile.  When you find the answer let me know!

My favorite is the "agent is so busy they had to have their photo taken while talking on the phone" pose.  Granted, it is usually a rotary dial phone with a cord attached!

How about the 10 years ago glamour shot? Just kidding, I usually try to make sure I have a smile. I'm not into the "gunslinger scowl" look.
