PRIVATE HEAD SHOT AND LIFESTYLE SESSIONS
If you have booked a private session with studio 292 please read the following on how to prepare.
Your private session can last from 1 to 3 hours depending on how many looks you signed up for.
Please read the following on how to prepare for you session.
Get plenty of sleep the night before
Bring a snack and water
Come with a clean fresh face, make-up free (moisturizer is okay)
Moisturized lips (no chapped lips)
A little tan is okay, tropical tan, no way!
Make sure you are freshly shaved! Women be prepared for shorts and/or skirts if shooting lifestyle.
Do not get a facial or wax anything the day prior, you need to allow3-4 days for your skin to heal.
Men, if one look will be with facial hair, come prepared to shave at the studio.
Fresh manicure (clean fingernails, no colored nail polish, no acrylic nails)
Come with healthy hair, fresh cut and color. DO NOT COME WITH HAIR UP! Curly or straight? Talk to your agent on what's the best way to market yourself. When in doubt don't change the natural texture too drastically. Hair should be styled the way you natural wear it.
Please prepare your clothing in a neat and organized way, neatly folded or on hangers.
Always remember that certain clothing items may work better in real life than they translate onto camera, so it is a good idea to bring a large assortment and range of wardrobe to your shoot. 10 choices for a head shot is barely enough, 20 is better!
Logo free, glitter free, sparkle free, fresh and new. A tighter fitting shirt shoots better than a baggy shirt. A variety of color as well as a few black, white, grey. Think of a flattering neck line, scoop, v-neck, crew. DO NOT BRING COLD SHOULDER (Holes in the shoulder) shirts. They do not shoot well! Men, if you want to market yourself business, bring a nice fitted suit and tie options.
Jeans - well fitting, different washes, skinny, boot cut, wide legged (no rhinestones, no large white seaming)
Pants - consider the seasons - and what is flattering and marketable for you.
Shorts - Youth and teen, consider what is trending
Dresses/Skirts - Consider age appropriate and marketing, and what is trending
Shoes may or may not be in the shot, but having the option is great! Please no scuffs or dirty bottoms. Tennis shoes, boots, heels, ballet flats, dress shoes - again consider what is trending in style.
NUDE (MOST IMPORTANT) Thong, bra, strapless bra- and black (if you have it)
Black tights and/or leggings and any other color that you have for the season
Socks - fun patterns, cute knee high socks
A few favorite accessories, i.e. belts, necklaces, bracelets, hats, scarves, bandanas
Bring an item that you love or think would be really fun, but not sure it will work out! We love to try things! Either it will work or it won't but at least we can try.
Headshots and portfolio sessions are an investment for you to market yourself. A lot of talent will buy items for the shoot and return after. DO NOT take the tags off before the shoot, and know the return policy.
Athletic looks are only for those who have been told by an agent they need to market themselves that way. Please bring new active wear and props, yoga mat, water bottle etc.
