There are many questions about the photo shooting that I would like to answer below. Further examples of successful shots in my portfolio.
What should I wear for the shooting?
It’s best to bring several outfits to the shoot. The clothes should be clean and wrinkle free and fit well. Avoid too small patterns, stripes and checks on the tops and avoid too bright colors. Best uni-colored tops that do not distract the view. If you want, we also offer professional fashion and style advice through our partners.
Can I wear jewelry or other accessories?
Again, it is best if you bring a selection for the photo shoot, together we then choose the right one. The jewelry and accessories should be discreet so as not to distract the view. Gentlemen are welcome to bring a selection of ties and pochette.
Should I go to the hairdresser before the shooting?
It is best if you go to the hairdresser a few days before the shoot. After all, if you want to use your portrait for years, everything should be as perfect as possible. The best way to style your hair on the day of the shoot is to look the most natural. As a gentleman, please pay attention to a well-groomed beard or a good shave.
Do I need a professional make-up?
For Ladies we recommend to book a professional make-up. The products used ensure a smooth complexion and fresh appearance … without glare.
There is no second chance for the first impression … Everyone knows the saying, right? However this is not just a saying, and can be explained with the halo effect. Essentially, our overall impression of a person (“He is good looking!”) impacts your perception of that person’s other traits (“He is also intelligent!”) … and this also works on-line. Here are three tips that help to optimize your on-line profile to be perceived more positive.
1. Use only good photos and pictures
Photos and pictures are the first thing we pay attention to even before we read the first sentence. Only one bad picture and the reader is more critical of the actual content. A bad photo on your on-line profile is like a selfie in your job application …
2. keep it short
The reader should understand at first glance what your content is about and what he can expect. It helps to write short and concise texts and to divide them well with headings. Few readers want to read page-long novels … rather an entertaining short story.
3. be an entertainer
Do you like watching depressing documentaries on TV? Well, most people don’t …. and they just use social media for their entertainment (even if used for business). It’s like on TV … when it’s boring or depressing, viewers switch over. So whatever you message is, try to be entertaining and interesting! This also applies to your profile.
