Many students use selfies, photos of themselves cropped out for a group shot, or even their school ID as their important professional profile shot.

You need a professional profile photo for your LinkedIn and other professional sites.

Officers of the newly formed Penn State student chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators asked Akash Ghai of the PSU chapter of the National Press Photographer's Association to lend his expertise to take professional photos for students.

The cost is $5. (cash only)
