I'm writing this post because I'm trying to let appear the photo on the moderncv using the banking style, but from default isn't possible.

So I would to know how to show the photo using the banking style and possibly putting the photo at the top of the first page above the name and title.

    May I ask why you do not use style classic or casual? They both show the photo ... BTW: Welcome to TeX.SX! – Mensch Sep 4 '13 at 12:29

    Simply because I love the banking format, whereas I don't like others:), but I need to add the photo:) thank you!!:) – Pier Greenhearth Sep 4 '13 at 13:03

Add the following to your preamble:

\makeatletter
\@ifpackageloaded{moderncvstylebanking}{%
\let\oldmakecvtitle\makecvtitle
\renewcommand*{\makecvtitle}{%
  {\centering\framebox{\includegraphics[width=\@photowidth]{\@photo}}\par\vspace{10pt}}%
  \oldmakecvtitle%
}%
}{%
}
\makeatother

This checks whether you are using the banking style or not. If this is true, the photo is added at the top of the page, as you requested. If this is false, nothing changes, so you can use different styles even after have added this code to your document.

All you have to do is to use the command \makecvtitle as before. The photo is printed when you issue that command.

This is the result with the modified sample file templates.tex that accompanies the moderncv class after having set the style to banking:

You can check the file for the casual or classic variant of an moderncv cv, copy the banking style into a new style file in the same directory you have your cv, rename it for example to moderncvstylemybanking.sty (I added my) and copy the code from cassual into your local style mybanking.

So you will get with the new moderncvstylemybanking.sty
