Tips for Getting a Great Headshot
Avoid wearing bold or pin stripes, plaids, and busy patterns.
Try to wear clothes that will accentuate your best features, like your skin color, eyes or hair. For example you might wear a blue blouse if you have blue eyes.
Avoid wearing shirts that are too similar to your skin color. Contrast is preferred, so wear a darker shirt if you have light skin, and light shirt if you have darker skin.
Feel free to bring a few options and John will help you decide.
Avoid wearing any shirts or jackets with wrinkles, as the camera and lights pick up on that.
Keep in mind, the picture is the main subject of the photo, so avoid any clothes or jewelry that would distract.
Please tell me your expectations or past experiences prior to the headshot session, so we can plan the shoot and lights accordingly.
If you're tired during photos, it is very noticeable, so make sure to be well rested.
Portrait sessions can be fun, especially with me, so let yourself relax and be yourself. A genuine smile or expression trumps all other facets of a headshot.
