USEFUL HEADSHOT TIPS.

#5 WEAR YOUR FAVOURITE FRAGRANCE!

This is slightly unconventional, but this tip is intended to put you in……the zone!

Really?

Fragrance?

Let’s break it down.

**IT’S MY MISSION AS A HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER TO MAKE YOU LOOK CONFIDENT AND APPROACHABLE**

These are the keys to a successful headshot.

Great lighting too of course, but the main goal is to make you look your best, to get you hired, get you likes, to get you noticed.

So, why fragrance?

I’m a complete ‘frag-head’ (fragrance collector).

Fragrance can help you to project confidence. It will transport you via your sense of smell to different times and places. Scent can trigger fond memories of achievements and personal conquests. Don’t underestimate the power of a great fragrance. Do you have a ‘go-to’ fragrance you wear to the office, to interviews, to board meetings? Wearing it will boost your confidence, so rock that fragrance at your headshot session and smash it out of the park.

#3 MOISTURISE YOUR SKIN!

Don’t turn up to your headshot session with a ‘walnut face!’

Whether it’s for Linkedin, Facebook or a company website, your profile picture is your brand, and it defines you to your viewers. Think of it as a virtual handshake. A first impression. See how important it is now that we portray you at your very best?

Incorporating moisturiser into your daily grooming routine is going to keep the skin on your face from drying out and help you to stay looking fresher and younger.

Now we do want to look our best for our headshots don’t we fellas?

Time to start slapping on that face cream!

Moisturise 2-3 times a day for a week before the shoot for great results.

Try not to use moisturisers with an SPF factor as they tend to give the face an unnatural shine.

#2 GET YOUR HAIR CUT A FULL WEEK BEFORE THE SHOOT.

Getting your hair cut a week before your headshot session will give your hair the chance to ‘grow in’ a little. It will give it time to relax into its true style.

Also in the Summer months, a fresh haircut might leave tan lines around the neck and forehead, so be mindful of that.

Try to stick to a tried and tested style and avoid any major experimentation at this stage.

A quick word on grey.

It looks great on you!

Yep…….a little salt and pepper can look very distinguished and it looks fantastic in pictures. Embrace it.

If you do decide to colour your hair or beard, then I would suggest doing so a couple of weeks before your headshot session to give it a little time to blend in and look more natural.

USEFUL HEADSHOT TIPS FOR MEN.

#1 TRIM YOUR NOSE HAIRS.

It should go without saying guys, but please take five minutes to trim your nose hairs before your headshot session!

Whether it’s corporate headshots, personal branding portraits or even social media shots for Linkedin or Facebook, you’re going to want to present yourself in the best possible light. If you’re trying to make a great impression and ultimately get hired for a new job, then having hairs exploding from your nostrils is not going to make a great impression is it now?

It suggests a lack of attention to detail and poor personal grooming standards. Both of these things are going to go against you in your quest for professional advancement.

Trim your nose hair guys and thank me later.

Whilst you’re there, go ahead and trim your ear hair too.

Did I mention eyebrows yet? The best way to deal with unruly brows is to ask the barber to trim them neatly for you, the next time you visit.

You know all this stuff though right?

Here’s a blog post on trimming nose hair.
