tips & dress code

To help you prepare for your headshot session, here are some helpful tips.

 

Tips

1. Do not be hungover. Have a good nights sleep the night before and preferably the week running up to your session.
2. Drink plenty of water the week running up to your session – although this should be something you should do anyway!
3. Eat well and do not diet just for the session.
4. Exfoliate the 3-4 nights before so that your skin is fresh. Do not exfoliate the night before in case this causes break outs.
5. Try not to sunbathe or tan as this can make skin appear dry.
6. If you decide to fake tan, please be aware that this doesn’t always look great in photos, especially if done badly!
7. Wash your hair that day and make sure your eye brows are looking good and groomed!
8. Don’t cut your hair especially for the session. If you are planning a hair cut, please do this at least a week in advance so your hair has time to settle.
9. Make up – less is more, no heavy make up please.

Dress Code

Headshots are all about your face, so I like to advise my clients on a dress code so that we don’t end up shooting with clothing that distracts.
Girls: A white round neck or scoop necked t-shirt. Long or short sleeved is fine.
Additional tops that work for headshots that you are welcome to bring a selection of include, BUS vest tops (no string/cami straps) and colours like black, grey, navy and any other colour that you think highlights your skin tone, hair or eyes.
Guys: A white shirt and/or white round neck or scoop necked t-shirt. Long or short sleeved is fine.
Additional tops that work for headshots that you are welcome to bring a selection of include colours such as black, grey, navy and any other colour that you think highlights your skin tone, hair or eyes.
