TIPS FOR BETTER PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS

Your shoot is an investment, make the most of it with these tips.

General guidelines for wardrobe: Feel free to break the Rules.

Avoid all white, beige and or skin tones and strong patterns.

If you just require a headshot for your LinkedIn profile, then bottoms don’t matter. More body in your shot means smaller face which might mean less personality in a LinkedIn profile.

Generally, darker shades/colours shoot better then light. Clean lines are better than fussy designs.

A blazer is preferable, especially for men. For women a top or dress with structure works well.

If you are not sure about ties and glasses, we can shoot both.

Best practice is to bring more if you are not sure. It is easier for me to style you in person.

A generous change room is available for you at the studio.

For the most part, guys can get away with no makeup.  Just retouching is good.

For women who have limited experience with preparing for Headshots, I highly recommend a makeup artist. A good artist can give you that polished Look that you usually cannot achieve yourself. It is a worthwhile investment! Don’t worry, the artists I work with never do glamour or YouTube style makeup. Colours used will lean towards natural tones.

Your hair is extremely important! If longer I suggest you put heat into it ( blowdry or iron) in prep for the shoot. Bring some product to help with styling different Looks. 

Moisturize your lips well before the shoot.

All my packages includes retouching.  No worries about blemishes.

I will provide plenty of coaching and advice throughout the shoot.  I always aim for a smile that is confident and approachable.  But of course, it is always what you think is best for you.

I will always direct the posing. We can do standing or sitting.  Let me know at the time of booking if you require a full length shot that includes the shoes.

Framing and Lighting is my job and you will get a variety of Looks for your portfolio.

Lighting can include studio strobes and/or natural window light at my studio. As we are in the Distillery District, there is plenty of opportunity for outdoor Looks.

Framing is usually limited to head and chest, however we can do 3/4, sitting and full length if desired.. The focus is on sharp clear eyes.

Backgrounds matter and I tend to shoot professional portraits on white/grey.  You will have plenty of background options that are digitally composited with Photoshop with your choice of retouched photo.

We will review your photos on a full size 27 inch monitor as we shoot. You can’t improve without immediate feedback! Also, there are no surprises as to what you get from the shoot. Favoured shots are marked as we review. And, good or bad, I will always have an opinion.

I do not count shots and generally there is no limit.  You will receive all of the shots from the shoot as proofs for your careful review as a Google Drive gallery.

My retouching leans towards removing distractions, including all blemishes, evening out your skin tones and correcting any issues that are not permanently a part of you. All Packages include background replacement.  Check out my Retouching Page for samples of what is possible.
