HOW do I prepare for my headshot session?
The camera pulls out what you’re feeling, so come prepared feeling your best. Get plenty of sleep the night before, eat light and healthy the day of the shoot, and, gentleman, don’t forget to shave. Consider hiring a professional make-up artist or hairstylist, but don’t switch up your normal hygiene regime just before the shoot as new skin cleansing or hair care products could bring about unexpected results.
WHAT do I wear?
Keep your style simple. Medium to dark colors are generally more flattering that lighter colors. Avoid all-white and busy patterns that distract fromyour face. As implied in its’ name, a headshot consists of your head and upper shoulders, so choose something that falls well on your collarbone and flatters your neckline.
