Here’s a quick list of tips to make your headshot photo session a success.
- Get Some Rest
Getting a good nights sleep before your headshot session will help keep your eyes looking bright and can help avoid dark circles under your eyes.
- Keep clothing simple
Avoid busy patterns in shirts/ties/blouses. You don’t want your clothing to distract from your face.
- Bring clothing options
Always bring an extra outfit or two to your session. Different necklines can affect the shape of your face, so having a few different choices (shirt with a collar, crew neck, v-neck, scoop neck, etc.) can be very helpful.
- Share your intentions
Let your photographer know what kind of look you want. Bring examples or reference images from the photographers portfolio.
- Actors – think about “characters” you might portray
Are you the good guy/girl, the popular guy/girl, the bad guy/girl,
the professional guy/girl? Where is this character from? What is his/her disposition? What is his/her financial background (blue collar/white collar/middle)? These questions will help you decide what kind of wardrobe to bring.
