- Skin Features: Do not hide your skin's personality! Flaunt your freckles. Don't cover your moles. They are a part of what makes you unique. Unique features are what make others sit up and take notice. Of course, if the day of the shoot you are sporting a monstrous zit, use some light makeup, but I'll magically heal it! Generally speaking, unusual attractive features are an asset. Who would ever want to say good-bye to Harrison Ford's chin scar?
- Avoid heavy makeup! During finishing of your selected images, we will take care of blemishes and other 'artifacts' on your skin during the basic retouch process. Heavy makeup tends to look caked up. Remember that my cameras and lenses produce images at far higher definition than even HDTV and my job is to flatter you, but your headshot has to look like the person that walks into the audition space!
- Ladies with straight hair: You want to frame your face, so if your hair is very straight and long, give it some body to accentuate your face.
- Haircut: Don't cut your hair the day before your shoot! It will look like you just got a haircut. Give your hair a week after a cut to relax.
I offer all my clients professional hair and makeup for an additional fee. I highly recommend using them. They will put you that much more at ease knowing that everything is perfectly applied for the camera.
