I AM SIGNED UP!!! WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Each of our four photographers will have a backdrop that is gray in color. The tips listed below will work well for any of our participants. The suggestions on this page are not a one size fits all, but will be very helpful as you prepare for the big headshot day.
Check out the link below for great tips on appropriate clothing for your Headshot. A typical headshot session is generally a professional representation of yourself. Wearing ironed clothing, tops without "sayings" or "store logos" is highly recommended. Our photographers will NOT edit out wording on your clothing, stains or wrinkles.
We suggest that you wear dark, solid colors (similar to the images above).
I WEAR GLASSES
If you wear glasses in your everyday life, then please do not refrain from wearing them during your headshot session. We have found that individuals who choose to forego their glasses tend to not like their images because "it just doesn't look like me." Feel free to ask your photographer to take an image with and without your glasses. Only 1 image will be fully edited and provided to the client. Our photographers are very talented and work with clients who wear glasses. They know different tricks to help with glasses that are thick or that may cause extreme glare.
JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES
Simple, clean lines are BEST. Jewelry, broaches, pins, handkerchiefs, etc that will not take your eye away from your beautiful/handsome face are best. If this is for your business headshot then steer clear of wearing a hat (unless your business is geared around selling hats).
We will NOT have hair and make-up available at this event. If you have a scar, mole or beauty mark that you would like removed from your 1 fully edited image please discuss this with your photographer. Make sure your hair is fixed the way you want it to be and arrive 5 minutes early if you need to spruce yourself up in the restroom prior to your session.
Please come completely READY upon arrival to the venue. You make take a few moments to freshen up in the bathroom.
HOW DO I GET TO THE VENUE AND WHERE DO I PARK?
