What to Wear

Confidence, the right clothes, hair & makeup and the attitude you portray at the shoot all impact the outcome of your photos. Dress as if you were going to an event, or representing your company. 

Bring accessories and props, eg: Laptop, tablet and notebook. The more prepared you are, the better your photos will look!

A business suit and a contrasting coloured blouse or top always works. Long sleeves and solid colours photograph best. Keep your jewellery simple and stylish. 

For casual looks, bring a range of colours but avoid busy patterns. We recommend you bring in 3-4 outfits on the day, so you have more options to choose from, bring even more if you’re taking a Custom Profile or Personal Branding session.

Here's what to bring to your session.

For a formal look, a black, navy or charcoal colour suit with your favourite tie (casual, soft, statement style ties are in fashion now) and plain shirt, with protruding French cuffs photograph well.

Hair and Make-up

Do you need professional hair and make-up?

We recommend you get a trim or haircut before your shoot.

Gents, please come wellgroomed and ready. Photoshop can reduce imperfections and shine.
