What men should wear during an Corporate headshot session

In this first series of tips, today we will focus on :

Have you ever asked yourself what men should wear during an headshot session?

Here some few tips to make your session as success:

  • We personally do not suggest white dress shirt by itself- unless you plan to wear it underneath a jacket.
  • Polo shirts may be appropriate for some businesses.
  • For business attire you may want to bring a couple outfits or jackets. 
  • Don’t worry about pants or shoes if we will only be photographing from the chest up.
  • Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you feel good.  I suggest you bring a few options. By new clothes specifically for the shoot. New clothes always make us feel better!

  • Avoid busy patterns and large lines/stripes unless they will be covered with a solid or subtle patterned jacket. Lines and patterns distract from the face. We want your face to be the center of attention.. not the necklace or awesome shirt. Simple is better.

  • A casual business look is often a jacket and open dress shirt, shirt and tie (no jacket), or dress shirt on it’s own

  • Don’t wear overly styled shirts with lots of details, lines or patterns. They distract from the face.
