Can we book in a make up artist for our session?
Yes, Marina works with a number of professional make up artists and can organise for one to be at your session, you just need to let us know so we can tee it up for you.
What should I wear to my head shot session and how should I prepare for it?
We recommend wearing what you would normally wear to work but make sure that it's the best version of that, so make sure your clothes are freshly laundered and ironed, remove any pet hair with a clothes brush. Jackets always look more professional than bare arms (particularly for corporate). If you need to update an outfit than sure go ahead, there is nothing quite like a new outfit to make you feel more confident. Dress to impress the clients that you want to attract to your business. Feel comfortable to bring a second option of jacket or top if you are not sure or want a second look for your images.
For your hair, consider whether you may need a visit to the hairdresser to have a trim or to touch up your colour if it needs it,
For men, if you shave; then clean shaven will look better than a look of forgotten to shave, if you have a beard just then make sure it's tidy and trimmed.
A couple of things to avoid if possible for your session - busy patterns or patterns that may cause a strobe effect in the image such as check patterns.
Once you have decided on you background options then avoid wearing a colour top that will blend. For example, white on white will look bland and black on black has a disappearing effect.
Check your finger nails, if you are wearing polish than make sure its a fresh colour with no chipping or make sure to remove it completely
Make up and jewellery, best advice I can give here is don't overdo it, keep it simple.
So that I can offer you most out of your headshot session I require some details from you about how the images will be used
For example will it be used for an online presence such as social media, website, linkedIn, or a print format such as a business card, brochure, marketing, press release or newsletter?
How many final images do you require for this?
Do you want a natural environmental portrait or a studio look? Do you need to match a background to suit a brand or website? Do you need a few background options for your session
So that I know how to best set up the studio for you -Do you need just the head and shoulders photographed, a three quarter body shot or do you need a full length shot?
I am also happy to answer any other questions you may have about your session.
