Tell u wat, no need for u to take photo studio. just a waste of time and $$. The best way is u can take any full length photo which cost u priceless and they just wanna have it for the interview. But its worthless if u already throw so much just to take the photo end up u didnt have the chance to go in for the selection process...

So just be casual and bring along any full length photo that u have.tat all :wink:

From what i know.. your full length picture must be taken in a white background.. or rather plain background... You must dress in formal attire...

You can do that at home.. at your wall.. don't really need to go studio.. waste money..

BUt coz if you don't have the photo they require.. you can take at the place itself.. but it will cost you around $20 - $25.. i forgot the actual amount..

So best you can bring one along..

:) I vote for Studio. Besides your resume, your photo would be the next thing that could help you during the selection. CHEERS! :D

If it was an interview in an IT company, i would say your garage Photo would also do. But in this case, since this will be the Service industry and your appearance is Key, i guess this calls for a professional touch. Go to a studio, Invest in yourself, and yes all the best for the interview!

Hi... I suggest u ask urself if u REALLY want this job. If u do, get the professionals to do a decent photo-shoot 4 u. I am not going to promote any make-over studio here but if u are unaware, there's alot of make-over studios around 4 u to go to.

Personally, I've went to one myself and it cost me around $70/- inclusive of make-up, one professional outfit, 8 passport size photos and 4 3R photos. Quite a decent deal.

Otherwise, if u wan to be 'bo chap' and take a 'bo chap' photo urself, indirectly u might show ur future employers that u're 'bo chap'... get the drift?

Hello sis, excuse me if i were to speak up my words ya
It doesnt matter even if u bo chap or whateva, its all depends on the day itself even if u were to throw so much $$$ ,like me before i went AND SPEND almost S$150 for everything want me to name the studio [JIN YEAP], what did i get at last? ? and 3 of ma frens were just simply go in as if nothing happen , even some of them last minute attend the interview without a perfect attire and no full lentgh pic n watsoeva, end up they get chosen, and i didnt make it....so what the point here tell me what the means of "bo chap" and not? ? this what i experience it so i let u guys know. Its doesnt matter what kind of photo u were to give em,This is aint modellig contest or whateva promotion u were to give em to post ya photo's,k dun gimme those crap. the main prior thing is they wanna see what it have in u for them to make the selection. get it?? :?

Go to a decent studio where you could purchase the soft-copy. Which will be ideal. In this case, your investment will go a long way. Taking a home photo is another possible option, should you be on a budget. Remember, against a plain background and dress formal. Not one of your vacation photos, ya. :lol: :lol: :lol:

i don't think why not, if you're happy and content with your decision. It could be an advantage :lol: probably instills more confidence towards your selection... kekeke
