WHAT TO DO BEFORE THE SHOOT…

 

Hair cut and colour - be sure to do this at least 2-3 days prior to the shoot to allow

a fresh cut to settle.  If it’s a new style this will give you some time to get used to it - although, any drastic hair style changes are not recommended right before a photo shoot.

 

Take care - when waxing or tweezing at least 24 hours prior to the shoot to be sure there is no residual redness or puffiness that will appear in your photos.  To avoid 5’o clock shadow, you will want to shave before the shoot.  Be sure to moisturise well after shaving, preferably with an unscented light lotion made for sensitive skin.  Avoid moisturisers with sunscreen as this can interfere with flashes or other lighting used during photography causing the skin to cast a whitish glare.

 

No spray tans please!  Also, don’t lay out in the sun right before a shoot.  You risk getting sunburned which even the most skilled photographer and retouching techniques have difficulty fixing.

 

Ladies, please don’t use shiny or glossy makeup.  Matt base on a primer is highly recommended and if you want great looking cheek bones, invest in a contour kit.  Remember, less is more – don’t overdo it!  If you would like to use a make up artist, go for it!  When you look amazing, it really does show in your photos.  I can suggest one if you are interested.

 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR A HEADSHOT?

 

Solids work better than patterns

Keep it simple when it comes to the design and style of your clothing.

Patterns and heavily textured items tend to distract from the main focus of the headshot,

which is you, and that defeats the purpose.

 

For example, tight grid-like patterns can have a weird effect on the camera,

but if you would like to incorporate a pattern, thin stripes usually work well.

However, under no circumstances should your clothing have writing or a logo displayed on it.

 

Avoid shiny, reflective materials, like silk ties

Stay classy with a dark suit in navy or grey.

Try to land the colour of your tie between the tones of your suit and dress shirt.

Bring a variety of ties if possible.

 

Choosing the right colors

It’s a general rule of thumb with any headshot that brighter colors express youth

and darker colors express maturity. Keep this in mind when considering the image

that will represent your professional persona. Factor in your skin tone as well.

If you have a lighter skin tone, avoid lighter colors that could make you appear washed out.

If you have medium or darker skin tones, stay away from earthy tones that may be similar to your skin color.

 

And of course, make sure to choose colors that you love and that look good on you.

If you don’t know what those colors are, consider a hue that brings out the color in your eyes. 

 

If you’re still a bit unsure about what to wear, take a few options out of your wardrobe and throw it down on the ground, take a quick pic and send it to me for feedback.  I’m a fashion designer, so I can totally give you some pointers.
