What sort of photo are the schools looking for that require one? Birthday suit, business suit, dinner suit, or informal...and background? Bedroom, park, office, or whocares...

They just want a picture of your face... just use a light background. It's basically a passport photo. I've been told that what you wear isn't important, but seriously, it's not going to hurt you to dress up and impart a professional image. They're not supposed to base anything on the picture... but again... looking professional couldn't hurt.

A picture of you passed out with a penis drawn on your cheek with women's lingerie on your head. It'll show you have a sense of humor.

I say you go with a gangsta pose, and dont be afraid to flash a little east coast / west coast gang sign according to where the schools your applying to are, they like that kinda stuff, it shows you represent...

I don't think the photo issue is that deep.
