How to prepare for your session

I must apologise if some of these tips sound pedantic, obvious, or are not applicable to you. I have learnt, though, that it is always better to give every subject these tips rather than risk having a subject turn up unprepared.

  1. Try to have a good night's sleep and not drink the night before.
  2. Iron you clothes. Little details like a cease in your shirt may not be noticeable in 'real-life', but become noticeable in a photograph.
  3. Wear some makeup to bring out your features, the camera tends to wash people out slightly. 
  4. Bring a hairbrush. I generally advise women to wear their hair down or partly down. If you wear it in a ponytail it can look like you have no hair from some angles.
  5. Try to make sure you are looking generally 'well-groomed'. For example; pluck your eyebrows and have your roots done. 
  6. If you commonly wear both contacts and glasses, consider wearing contacts. This will mean that we don't have to deal with glare on your glasses. If you prefer to wear glasses, we will of course work around this.
  7. When choosing your outfit, have a think about the image you are wanting to portray (professional? creative? casual?). It can be a good idea to bring a few different tops so we have a choice. Simple clothes tend to look more timeless. Fitted clothing tends to look better as baggy or flowing clothing can make you look bigger than you are. Mid-tones tend to photograph better, and it's best to avoid all white or all black (black and white together or with other colours is fine though). In general, please don't wear tops with brand names, logos, writing or drawings on them, unless you are wearing a work uniform that has your business logo on it. Simple patterns like small polka dots, stripes, or delicate florals, can look great.  
  8. Have a think about whether there a part of your face or body that you generally dislike in photographs, and I will do my best to minimise this. Please don't be embarrassed to tell me, we all have these insecurities! For me it's my double chin and teeth that are too big for my face. If you're interested in learning how to minimise a double chin in photographs, have a look at this video by renowned headshot photographer Peter Hurley. It changed my life.

Important information 

  1. The final images I deliver will be selected by me. A very important, dare I say essential, part of a photographer's work is to edit down the images from a session to the final, best images. I will take many images during the session, and while these images help me to create the final product by allowing me to test the light, exposure, poses, facial expressions and so on, they are not the final product themselves.
  2. I am generally booked out up to eight weeks in advance. Get in touch as soon as possible to ensure that I have availability for your session.

Contact me here if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting you!
