When preparing for an actor headshot session, it's essential to choose clothing that will enhance your features and portray your casting. Here are some clothing advice tips to help you look your best:

  1. Keep it simple: Opt for clothing with clean lines and minimal patterns. Avoid bold logos or graphics that can distract from your face.

  2. Solid colors: Choose solid colors that complement your skin tone and eye color. Neutral tones like black, white, gray, and navy are always a safe choice. Earth tones and pastels can work great too.

  3. Avoid all-white or all-black outfits: Solid white can sometimes wash you out in photographs, while solid black can blend with the background. If you want to wear black, try adding a pop of color with a scarf, tie, or accessories.

  4. Consider your character type: Think about the roles you typically audition for and select clothing that aligns with those characters. If you often go for sophisticated roles, wear something elegant and classy. If you typically play more casual or edgy characters, opt for contemporary and trendy attire.

  5. Necklines: Choose a neckline that flatters your face shape. V-neck or scoop necklines tend to be more flattering and elongate the neck.

  6. Bring options: It's always a good idea to bring a variety of clothing options to the session. This will give you more choices and allow us to see what will work best with the lighting and background.

  7. Dress for the industry: Consider the type of acting work you aspire to do and dress accordingly. If you're aiming for film and television, dress in a way that is consistent with current industry trends. For theatre or period pieces, you might want to showcase more formal or vintage attire.

  8. Fit matters: Ensure that your clothing fits well and flatters your body shape. Avoid baggy or oversized clothes that can make you appear shapeless or unkempt.

  9. Pay attention to accessories: Keep accessories simple and minimal. Avoid large, distracting jewelry or accessories that draw attention away from your face.

  10. Comfort is key: Make sure you feel comfortable in what you're wearing. When you're at ease, your confidence will shine through in your headshots.

Remember, the goal of your headshots is to capture your unique personality and versatility as an actor. By choosing appropriate and flattering clothing, you can present yourself in the best possible light and make a lasting impression.
