    Tips for obtaining the best headshot

    What to Wear

     

    * Solid, vibrant, and middle tone colors.

    * The clothing should be simple; no stripes or patterns.

    *Dark long sleeves produce the best dramatic headshot.

    * If you have blue eyes a blue shirt will bring out the color of your eyes, green eyes a green shirt, etc.

     

    Men

    *For corporate/professional shots, bring a few dress shirts (white, light blue, yellow etc.) and a few ties, all freshly pressed.

    *Shave right before appointment, unless you are going for a scruffy look. Bring a razor and shaving cream in case you decide to go for the clean shaven look during the shoot.

    *If you color your hair, make sure roots are not visible. It is extremely difficult and cost-prohibitive to correct in post.

    *Earrings and uni-brows are not recommended, unless that is the look you are going for

    *Make-up artist applying "camera ready makeup" is recommended. Foundation and powder supplied at studio.
