Portrait preparation guidelines for executives and professionals.
Your photographer is a friendly, professional portrait artist, who will be working with you to present your best image to the public. He will put you at ease, and will pose and light you correctly.
- Neat grooming. You may wish to bring any grooming articles (comb, mirror, cosmetics, etc) that you normally carry with you.
- Understated makeup/jewelry/neckties.
- Select upper-body clothing that fits correctly without straining or bagging, and that is not too low-cut.
- Wear soft colors, preferably pastels, or conservative, flattering shades.
- Choose solid colors or subtle prints: avoid stripes, dots, logos, loud prints/colors.
- Avoid stark black or stark white, unless you feel that those are your most flattering colors.
You will be asked for your email address, and you will receive a link to download your portrait.
