HOW TO PREPARE

FOR YOUR HEADSHOT 

PHOTO SESSION

It's all about getting your headshot taken, creative and personal. You might want to have your new Linkedin headshot, or you work on your new website and need a perfect image, and that's why we take time together to customise the session to your individual needs as a performer/entrepreneur/teacher etc.

Consultation

I give 100% of the work and preparation for your session. For this, I will ask a few questions about your purpose and aim. 

I like to make a great connection with you; therefore, I want to hear your story, have a bit of chat during the session, and maybe have laughter.

Remember that you can't expect your photographer to know exactly what you want without communicating it to them.

 

How do I prepare for my Headshots & Portrait shoots?​

If you plan to have a party before your big day that's a no-no, that would ruin your images, ensure to get plenty of sleep the night before your photo shoot session. Drink plenty of water and refrain from eating heavy meals. I offer tea, coffee and water to keep you relaxed during the session.

What clothing to bring?

Wear solid colours, dark and light, and black & white is a safe choice. 

Bring jackets, cardigans, suits, and a few variations of each look. Avoid loud and colourful patterns, which will be somewhat distracting,  logos and neon colours. Avoid old, stained or creased tops: these are likely to show up in your photos and could cost you more retouching fees. 

Long or short top? Avoid showing too much skin. 

 

Cold shooting day. Prepare to have an extra warm layer underneath. You might need to take your jacket/coat off, so make sure you are wearing warm clothes.  

Do you give Black & White images?​

Your selected images will be provided in both Colour and Black & White.

Can I purchase all the images?​

Yes, you can. You will receive all the images taken, including your purchased retouched ones. I'll send the unedited high-resolution photographs in jpeg, which will be £500.

Can I choose the images on the day?​

At the end of your photo shoot, you can choose your favourite images for editing unless you prefer to choose them in your own time to which I can send you a contact sheet via We-transfer. You need to send the last three digits of your selected ones. If you can't decide which one to pick, I am here to help.
