You may be feeling unsure about how to prepare for your photoshoot, so here’s a list of some key ways to help you when preparing for a headshot session:
Plan Your Day: Trying to plan your day a week ahead of time can be difficult, so try to make sure that you don’t have any appointments or any other scheduling conflicts in the minutes leading up to your session. You want, and need, to be focused during your shoot.
There’s truth to the adage “clothes make the man.” According to researchers, the way we dress conveys information about our identity both in and outside of the workplace and significantly impacts what others believe about us. That includes beliefs about how much influence and power we have, how smart we are, and even how much money we make – all of which impact whether hiring managers, co-workers and clients consider us trustworthy and reliable.
Beyond having the right professional pose and portrait style, what you choose to wear in your headshots will help establish your professional identity within your network. In addition, since most people will see your professional headshot before meeting you face-to-face, your wardrobe in professional headshots is also an essential part of making a great first impression.
