What if I don't want to upload a picture of myself.

Community Member

If you just want to use Upwork as a client, you don't need to upload a photo of yourself.


To work as a freelancer, upload a photo.

What is the difference?

re: "What is the difference?"


Clients pay freelancers to do work for them.


Clients pay money.

Freelancers earn money.

If I don't want to add a picture as a freelancer for religious reasons?

re: "If I don't want to add a picture as a freelancer for religious reasons?"


Upwork allows people of ALL faiths and religions to upload photos of themselves wearing religious garb.




You may also use other freelance work platforms which do not require profile photos.

Hi R,


If you are required to cover your face on your pictures and would like to request a religious exemption for using a profile picture, let us know and we'll be happy to assist you further.
