The AGS Young Titleholders (YTs) understand how important a great photo can be in your career. Back by popular demand, the YTs, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Platinum Guild International, are offering a day of head shots in the networking area during Conclave—for free! This is an excellent opportunity to get a professional photo of yourself.

Head shots can be expensive and are often taken for granted when entering the professional world. 

But don’t take our word for it. Here is what one member had to say about receiving head shots while attending Conclave 2017 in Hollywood, CA.

"I was in desperate need of a quality headshot before the one I took at the past Conclave in Hollywood. I kept putting off getting one taken because other matters were more pressing, so whenever I needed one I would get stuck using pictures that were mediocre at best.

Conclave is the perfect place to get your head shot taken, everyone is already dressed in their finest! I cannot wait to revamp my professional image and take another one this April!"

Register for Conclave and get your new head shot!
