How to choose your look

To get that drop-dead gorgeous shot, a little preparation goes a long way. Start by leafing through a few glossy magazines or going on line and getting a collection of images that you love. This will show exactly what direction you want your shoot to go.

Think about the styles you like, the colours you want to use, the mood you want to evoke. We can help you interpret your tear sheets in a way that works for your look, your figure, your personality.

What should I wear?

With an image in mind, sort out the clothes and accessories that will help us create it.

There will be time for several clothing changes, and each outfit can represent a different mood or style. Don’t forget to include shoes, belts, handbags or jewellery that will help to complete your look.

Smart casual suits fun, relaxed images; formal outfits are better suited to more stylized photographs.

Make sure that everyone is similarly dressed too, and stick to a colour theme.

A white background is the current fashion and in front of this, very light or very dark colours create stunning images.

Simple styles remain timeless and denim never goes out of fashion but avoid busy patterns. They tend to stand out more than the person wearing them and have a tendency to clash not only with the clothes of other people in your portrait
