For men: Preparing for your photoshoot | Whidbey Island Photographer

 Advice for men preparing for their photoshoot.

Short Hair: Have a hair cut a good week before the experience. You want to appear crisp, but not newly shaved!

Longer Hair: If clean cut isn’t your look, then a little prep and styling so you understand how it should appear on the day is terrific.

Clean Shave: As well as the usual shave (use a new razor to avoid nicks) only make sure 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 photos.

Beard: Make sure it has a good trim – it is often 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 just 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 instinctive grin – women find it really simple. Just think of something that genuinely makes you smile. If the grin happens in the mind then it happens on the face.

Clothes: You want to pick 2 or 3 outfits for the shoot. Get them ready in advance and make certain they are all wrinkle free. Try and avoid logo’s or text – that can be really distracting in images.

Shoes and Socks: Remember to choose footwear and socks that go with your outfits.

Props: If you are bringing any props, instrument, sports gear, hobby stuff, get that organized ahead of time too.
