For Guys: Preparing for your photoshoot
Advice for men preparing for their photoshoot.
Short Hair: Have a hair cut a good week before the sitting. You want to look crisp, but not newly shaved!
Longer Hair: If clean cut isn’t your appearance, then a little prep and styling so you know how it should appear on the day is great.
Clean Shave: As well as the usual shave (use a new razor to avoid nicks) just make certain the difficult areas, like just under the jaw bone are well done too.
Stubble: If you are going for the stubble appear, then don’t shave on the day – we need more rather than less for it show up in images.
Beard: Make sure it has a good trim – it is frequently worth getting a barber to do this for you. Shave any strays at the edges of the beard.
Good Sleep: The night before you want a good rest, this aids the face hugely, so no heavy drinking the night before!
Zits: If you wake up with zits, then simply leave them alone. We retouch everything anyway and it is easier to deal with a small zit then the disaster zone of picked zit!
Smile: Men have great troubles getting a unaffected grin – women find it really effortless. Just imagine something that genuinely makes you smile. If the grin happens in the mind then it happens on the face.
Clothes: You want to plump for 3 or 4 outfits for the shoot. Get them set in advance and make certain they are all wrinkle free. Try and avoid logo’s or text – that can be really distracting in photos. Don’t worry we’ll go over these in your fashion consultation
Shoes and Socks: Remember to select shoes and socks that go with your clothes. Clean your shoes ahead of time. You want your white shoes looking white with minimal scuff and dirt marks.
Props: If you are bringing any props, instrument, sports gear, hobby stuff, get that organized ahead of time too.
