If you’ve ever been to a killer party in L.A. or NYC, chances are you’re already well-versed on Mark Hunter a.k.a. The Cobrasnake. The photographer—best known for his high-flash party shots—has documented only the most badass (and most famous!) party-goers in his decade-long career. Since we’re in total party mode, we thought we’d hit up the expert on how to get snapped in one of his pics. The result? Hilarious guidelines that you shouldn’t take (too) seriously. Check ’em out below!


Mark Hunter’s Tips:

1. Think skinny.

2. Smile, but don’t look like you’re trying too hard.

3. Try not to get photographed with a big mouthful of cupcake or something like that.

4. Spend your entire life becoming really successful and cool, and then go to a really cool party in a great outfit.

5. Stand next to people who are hotter than you.

6. Stand next to people who are less hot than you, so you look the most hot.

7. Jump into the pool with all of your clothes on.

8. Stand on a table and dance with your best friend.

9. Go up to someone taking photos and stare at them real crazy-like until they take your picture.

10. Stage dive. If there’s no stage you can get on, dive off of a bookshelf or something.
