How To Get Fantastic Head Shots

May 4, 2016

1. Look at the camera

 

A general rule of thumb when it comes to head shots is to look straight at the camera.

 

 

 

2. Practice beforehand

 

Test out a few poses and looks in the mirror at home before you come through. It's all about working out the best angles, and aiming to get a wide variety of facial expressions packed into one shoot.

 

 

 

3. It's all in the eyes

 

If you want to convey an emotion you have to really truly feel it! Engage with that emotion - allow yourself to really truly feel happy or sad and it will come through your eyes - and that will truly show in the end product!

 

 

 

4. Keep it simple

 

Uncomplicated shots work the best! Keep your wardrobe classic, chic and timeless (read the wardrobe guidelines here). Avoid sunglasses, necklaces or jewellery that will distract from your face. Keep your hands away from your face!

 

 

5. Look like you

 

Far too often clients come to see saying that they've shot with another photographer and the photos just don't look like them - they were wearing too much make-up, the pics were so photoshopped, and at the end of the day, they don't even recognise themselves! Keep your look natural and true to yourself, and also to the characters that you are most likely to play.

 

 

 

6. Trust the photographer

 

I have years of experience working as a head shot photographer, and even more years working as a model! I know my way around all sides of the camera, and will do my best to guide you through the process in order to make it fun and incredible!
