    3! That’s an obvious choice!

  • steve poland

    #3 because I have never seen you clean shaven ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Mike Rowan

    Black & white is classic so I’d say #2, but I’m bias. If you want to be you & unique – I’d go with #3 all the way.

  • Scott Yates

    The picture in #3 seems to be voting for #2.

  • Kirill

    Definitely #3

  • Adam Menges

    I’m going to go with #2, as it’s the classiest. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Mom

    You forgot to include #3 in my choices

  • Taylor Brooks

    I’m a fan of #1.

  • lmckeogh

    It’s close between #2 & #3. Depends on how much real estate you’ve got to work with. As an avatar, #3 would lose something.

  • blcarey

    Love #3, but Sepia is classic. Go with #2.

  • Tom Higley

    I’m trying to remember when I’ve seen you look like any of these photos. Well, OK, you may have looked like #3 a time or two.

  • Alan Chiu

    #1 – you have a great smile there, and your portrait pops out more in #1 than in #2.

  • Adi

    #1 and #2 are too formal. #3 is great, but you may want to zoom in a bit.

  • Brad Feld

    I recommend #4.

  • aziz g

    #1 for passports, #3 all other situations.

  • Jerome Gentolia

    Love #3! LOL!

  • Sahil

    definately 1 or 2….biased towards 1.

  • John Hinnegan

    #3 … even if you don’t choose it, can we still use it on our site?

  • Ori


  • Dave Whittle

    I’m tempted to say 3, but I’m not the one who would have to live with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So I’ll vote for #1.

  • Angelinvestor8

    In order of preference:

    Shot#2: black and white, very nice.

    Shot#1: color version of the first one, looks jovial

  • Nicole Glaros

    That is hilarious! This week you have a yoyo hanging off your fingers…

  • Mitchell Magdovitz

    Must you use only one? The warmth of your small and the tonal quality of #2 take the best of #1 and #3.

  • Trevor Owens


    not a fan of the black and white unless it’s taken w/ a black and white camera, just taking the saturation down to 0 IMO only takes away from it.
