Tips for a Professional Headshot

untitled-9857Jessica PapeJessica Pape

Good evening everyone!

 

As I prepare for the Annual Dinner for the Dyersville Young Professionals, I thought I would send some tips regarding professional headshots. This may be old news to some, but to others who have never had a headshot taken, this may be some great information.

 

Our annual dinner will kick off at 5:30 with cocktails. As soon as you arrive and sign in, you will have the chance to have a headshot taken to use for business or personal use. This is a $75 value, free to our members of the Dyersville Young Professionals and their guests!

 

Here are some tips to help you get ready for your headshot on Thursday night:

  • Avoid big prints and patterns such as stripes/lines in clothing
  • Make sure that clothes are fitted properly
  • Match your personality and line of profession; if you work for the bank, dress up a little more than you would on a normal work day (suit jacket, button down shirt, etc)
  • Choose a color that complements you, watch for colors that may be too bold or washes you out
  • Ladies make sure you have hair and makeup done, natural looks best
  • Keep jewelry simple so that it does not distract from your face
  • Remember to have a great attitude and always bring your best smile!
  • It is recommended to have headshots done twice a year. If your headshot has not been updated recently, now is the time to do this! (I’ll admit, I am one of them!)

 

I hope these tips help and I am looking forward to seeing everyone and capturing some awesome headshots!
