Headshot Tips For Men

When choosing clothing for your professional headshot I like to tell my clients to think classic! Pick your favorite suit that fits you well and is preferably a classic dark color like navy blue or gray. Choose a suit that doesn't bunch up when you button it or if you sit down. Ties look best when their tone lands between the suit and the shirt.....so a light shirt, a dark suit, and a tie in a shade somewhere between them. Some ties are too shiny.....try to stay away from really reflective, shiny, silky ties. If you don't wear a tie and you want to wear a button-down shirt, it's best to wear a jacket or sweater of some kind to layer the look. If not, choose a darker color shirt or something with pockets or small details to avoid it looking like a floating head and unbutton a button or two. Make sure we can't see your undershirt beneath the button-down shirt....wear a v-neck or no undershirt at all. And my number one tip remember to come with your clothes freshly washed and pressed!
