How to Look Your Best in Your Next Professional Head Shot Photo Session -In this social media crazed world we seem to have a million ways to share photos, post photos, and tag photos....however when it comes to our professional lives it is nice to have a polished and stylized look. This includes good lighting, polished makeup, styled hair, and appropriate attire. These key ingredients help represent you in the way that you want people to see you.
Even though we are in the industry, I really do recommend hiring professional help with styling for attire, hair, and makeup looks. These photos are going to be used for your business and represent you and you work so hard to put your best foot forward at work why not put your very best into your image as well.
Suggestions when considering a professional head shot...

3.) Hair - Hair should be simple in a style you feel comfortable with and one that is flattering to your attire and your face. It shouldn't cover your face too much and also shouldn't be completely pulled back.
Not to much hair product, you want it to be soft and fall naturally not look stiff in the photos.
|Example of the right amount of makeup|
*** there is a benefit to airbrush makeup and that is, it holds up well in heat and lights and lasts for a very long time if you are having a long shoot. It also doesn't show brush strokes because it is applied with an airbrush gun. This is all much more important in a high definition photo shoot. Or for media prints that will be enlarged such as posters or banners.
