I don't know yet if the press will pay for it, but I doubt it; some of the other author photos they have are really crappy. But I'm vain, and I hate all pictures of me, and I want a nice photo attached to my book, dammit!
I think I might take luvmylocs's suggestion and try buying a good camera and asking my sister to take pictures of me in some natural light in a park or something. Maybe a really professional picture will look like I'm trying too hard, compared to the other crappy ones used by my publisher.
Oh, you deserve a good picture.
Definitely try some on your own. Remember...light from below, and shoot from above.
