Congratulations

You've booked your headshot with BBImagery. You'll find it an extremely relaxed session, there's no rush and by the end of the session you will have the quality images you're looking for. While we prepare the studio for your arrival, there are steps you can take to make the most of our time together. We've prepared some information below which should help you on your way.

Industry Norms

While we all want to stand out there are certain industry norms which you may want to take into account when it comes to wardrobe choices. These 'norms' are different depending on your industry and depending on your target audience, so before you arrive, if you're not sure, ask a colleague or a friend who might have better insight.

All of the images above were appropriate for different target audiences in different industries. Know your audience, know your industry.

 

MEN

  • Solid colour shirts and simple ties always work well. Make sure the clothing is pressed and ready to wear.
  • Bring options. Avoid Logos.
  • Consider having both a formal choice and a more relaxed choice or two strong alternatives to give you variety.

WOMEN

  • White or solid colour blouses and blazers work best
  • Bring options. Avoid Logos.
  • Exposed upper arms can be an issue, if you’re concerned, bring a top that conceals.

HAIR

  • ALWAYS bring a hairbrush / comb.
  • Consider hiring a make-up artist.
  • Book a hair appointment just before your session

MAKE-UP

  • Consider hiring a make-up artist. If you do, please arrive without make-up.
  • Visit a MAC counter or something similar.
  • Otherwise, keep it simple, neutral and clean unless you’re going for the strong look.

JEWELLERY

  • Be yourself, but keep in mind your audience.
  • Shiny jewellery can act like tiny mirrors and be distracting.
  • Bring a variety of jewellery if you’re not sure what will work under studio conditions.
