The key is to keep things simple...

You want to dress to flatter your face without any distractions.

In general….

  • Your clothes should be clean and wrinkle free.
  • Well fitted clothing will make you appear slimmer and more professional.
  • Bulky clothing can give you a rumpled look.
  • Long sleeves are a must.

For a corporate headshot....

  • A collared shirt with a jacket and tie is always a good idea.
  • A Double Winsor knot is best!
  • A Single Winsor is good if the tie is made of thicker material.

For a more casual look consider....

  • A dark sports coat with a medium shade crew shirt
  • An unbuttoned collared shirt with a crisp collar
  • A nice, "crisp", long-sleeved polo or a light weight v-neck sweater.

Wear solid colors….

  • Avoid stripes, plaids, prints and patterns.
  • They can distract a person’s eye from your face.
  • They date your photo more quickly.

Wear medium to dark clothing....

  • Almost black or charcoal is better than pure black.
  • Consider some richer neutrals like chocolate, navy, maroon & forest green.
  • Stay away from yellow, gold and red

Stay away from whites, beiges or pastels....

  • They draw attention away from your face.
  • Not even in your tie.
  • The only exceptions are...
    • The traditional dark suit with a white shirt and tie
    • If we are using a white background.

Jewelry....

  • No jewelry is preferred. Tiny post earring are ok.
  • But, if you must, kept it very simple.
  • Jewelry distracts from your face.

Glasses….

  • If you regularly wear glasses you should be wearing them in your headshot.
  • If you regularly wear several different pairs, bring them all. Some eyeglasses photograph better than others

Other IMPORTANT Tips...

  • Moisturize your face and lips with a good lotion and lip balm several days before your session
  • Avoid any new product on your hair, face or body - don't want any unexpected reactions.
  • Arrive clean shaven or with trimmed facial hair.
  • No makeup needed
  • If you need a hair cut, try to do it no later than 5 days before your session
  • Avoid drinking alcohol the night before to prevent puffy eyes.
  • Come with a positive attitude, feeling relaxed and confident!
