What to wear for Headshots: clothing advice for actors with Michael Wharley – Headshot Posing Tips We Love

by Sep 7, 2017Model Resources0 comments



Don’t take your whole wardrobe! Simple, practical advice for using clothing choices to control your image in your next headshot session.

The next in my ‘Take Control of Your Headshots’ series looks at the age-old agony-inducing issue of what the hell to wear for your shoot!

This is a fairly subjective area so many opinions are available, but I’ve tried to corral some pithy, practical tips for helping you make the most of your next shoot.

What’s in the video;

We begin with four general rules:

- The clue is in the name…
- Mind the crop…
- Normal rules apply…
- It’s not just your clothes….

And then, discuss the areas I encourage my clients to think about in ‘Getting Ready to Shoot,’ including:

- Lights & Darks
- Working with colour
- Texture & Structure
- Neckline

It’s all rounded off with a set of Dos and Don’ts.

More broadly, my ‘Take Control of Your Headshots’ series, aims to give actors the tools, techniques, insights, & tactics to take control of their next headshot session, before, during & after the shoot.

Hope you find it useful, and thanks for watching!
