*** HOW TO
PREPARE FOR OUR SCHEDULED PHOTO SHOOT: Please try to be on time, as we may have
other clients scheduled in the day. For one look we need approximately one hour
of time. 15 minutes shooting and 30 minutes downloading and burning DVD. Get a
good nights rest. No drinking alcohol or smoking please. Be up at least two
hours before our shoot. Do not drink more than two cups of coffee. Exercise one
hour if you can. Have something to eat. Get a haircut , shave , and shower.
Practice smiling. Pick a clean wardrobe the night before. Look and feel your
best! We are taking professional photos; HEADSHOTS- not mugshots. Please bring
patience and a good attitude. : )
bring one or two complete outfits. For example one business suit , that is clean and
pressed (no wrinkles!) with dress shoes. We recommend that you bring complete
outfits-IE: nice business shoes, matching pants, shirt and vest and jacket. NOT
jeans, flipflops mixed with a business shirt and jacket. If you wear a complete
outfit, you will feel better and it will show on your images. Solids, silks,
satins are a good choice. No big logos please for commercial headshots. We
recommend wearing what makes you feel what you want to communicate.
about: who is your client and what do you want to say? Remember: One picture is
worth a thousand words. Please decide what we are shooting : Passport,
portraits, business headshot, theatrical headshot, fashion images, senior
portrait. Please decide the background color. Available colors are white ,
black, grey, red, orange, green , blue and marble. Again we guarantee one image
to your satisfaction. Thank you for your interest in our service!
