What to Wear

Hello again!

Welcome back to this little series which explains all you really need to know about a Brand Shoot.  In this blog I’m going to look at a little deeper at a area that frequently comes up as an area of concern or confusion at first with clients – what to wear.

BTW – if you want to catch up with the full series, head here.

I think the very first point to make, whatever your session is about, is that the clothing choices you make should reflect YOU or your team on a typical working day.  It’s a great idea to grab together all your options the day before, make sure they fit and are clean/ironed beforehand.  Lay them out, add accessories, switch pieces in and out to create extra outfits on the day.

Let’s go a little more specifically now though.

So that’s 3 really simple really effective tips for you for your next shoot.  If you aren’t sure then always discuss this with your chosen photographer, find out if the session they are giving you provides sufficient time for a change of outfit or two and don’t forget to find out if there’s somewhere for you to actually get changed!

Thanks for reading & if you need help in this area, or know someone who’d really benefit from a Brand Photography session, then please do get in touch today.

Until next time…

Hello again!

Welcome back to this little series which explains all you really need to know about a Brand Shoot.  In this blog I’m going to look at a little deeper at a area that frequently comes up as an area of concern or confusion at first with clients – what to wear.

I will always suggest that you bring items along that you would normally use on a daily basis within your business – it could be as simple as your laptop, phone, diary or favourite pen.  It could also extend into your Tools of the Trade…. so if you are a fitness instructor you could bring a water bottle, towel, exercise matt & hand weights.  If you are a Seamstress then consider scissors, bobbins, threads & pin cushions etc.  The items that identify who you are or what product/service you offer.

Alongside this, one of the simplest ways to draw some of your branding directly into your images is to bring items that match your brand colours, or things with your logo on it.   Hats, brollies, mugs, notebooks, candles & scarves can all bring an additional ‘you’ element to your images.  Let me worry about the ‘hows’, but bring what feels right!
