A FEW HINTS ABOUT WHAT TO WEAR
1) Look professional; these are professional headshots, so collar and neckline are important. Some shots may extend to 3/4-body length but not your waistline.
2) You will be photographed on a grey colored paper. No matter what you wear, neutral color help you look good.
3) Accessories are great but don’t choose ones that are very large and/or shiny, as they will distract attention from your face. 4) Dress for your profession. Dresses and a sharp crisp blouse look great.
5) You are permitted 2 looks (jacket on/jacket off or 1 complete change of outfit)
6) Avoid bold colors and busy striped patterns.
7) If you have a short neck, wear a V-neck or blouse with 1-2 buttons undone to lengthen the neckline. Sleeves are better than sleeveless.
8) Avoid turtlenecks. They completely cover the neck and tend to be unflattering.
9) If you wear glasses and have frames without lenses, please bring them. Lenses reflect light. If your glasses lenses have been coated with an anti-reflective glaze, please bring them, as the light reflection will be reduced. We may ask that you sit for some of your pictures with glasses on and glasses off.
10) Bring Visine (if your eyes are red) and use before make-up is applied.
11) Hair needs to be styled before you get to the shoot. Please bring your own brush or comb to use prior to shooting your photo.
12) Do not drink (alcohol) excessively the night before to guard against puffiness and ensure eye clarity.
