Your headshot ... an accurate and realistic representation of you ... putting your best face forward.
A typical headshot session takes work for both you and me.
Here are some things that you can do to prepare for your headshot:


WHAT TO WEAR:
Solid colors are best, whatever color in which you feel best. For more dramatic shots, wear dark colors and long sleeves. Textures are OK but no patterns like stripes of plaids. Jewelry can be distracting and draw the eye toward it and not your face. Pastel colors are typically not recommended, neither is white or black, but more importantly, you should avoid anything that clashes with your skin tone, but rather wear complimentary colors. If you feel you look really good in something, even if it doesn't abide by the rules, bring it. Children should wear bright colors, no logos, and bring extra changes of clothes.

Accentuate the color of your eyes. if you have blue eyes, wear that color to bring your eye color out in the photo. And bring several outfits for change. If you are to play a certain type of character, and want to be photographed with that persona, have appropriate wardrobe with you. Communicate the qualities you wish to get across and the roles you want to play.

Bring your own make-up and hair styling products unless you are having it done professionally. Groom yourself (facial hair, nails) because we are working with your features close up and everything shows. Touching up photos is expensive.

Look your age!
Update your headshots often as you always want to look your age. If you have shoulder length hair and you suddenly go for a short cut, you need to update your headshot.

Let me know what type of headshot you want: Commercial or Theatrical. Typically, commercial headshots are warm and friendly, something you would use in advertising to promote your business. Theatrical are more serious and should reflect a more serious and focused tone.

Be yourself and RELAX! And please, be on time for your photo shoot.
