Corporate Photoshoot Clothing
Dress to impress - your clothing is part of your message and your personal brand!
For those in professional services such as lawyers, accountants, financial advisors and real estate agents, we recommend darker colours, possibly a classic business suit or smart professional attire..
Those working in more creative fields or with modern, upbeat company images may wish to use a little more colour to reflect their brand.
Mid-tone, solid colours such as greens, blues and browns (earthy colours) can be effective - avoid skin tones such as pale tan, beige, white or pale peach, pink or grey.
Very bright colours such as reds, oranges and yellows can be distracting, but can be effective for those engaged in marketing, advertising, public relations, architecture etc.
Having said all this - it's all about YOU! First and foremost, clothing should reflect your personality and the company image you're aiming to convey. Strong contrasts can create a powerful, lasting impression. What do you want your image to say to your potential customers?
We recommend a long-sleeved blouse or tailored jacket, with a fitted skirt.
Choose a subtle neckline.
Jewellery can lift an image, but avoid anything too flashy.
Avoid shiny or shimmering make-up, as it catches the light.
Make-up style should be similar to an evening out.
Extra foundation will help even out your skin tones.
Wear a suit jacket, shirt, and tie.
For a more casual image, a tidy, plain-coloured dress shirt is great.
Be clean shaven - no five o'clock shadows, please!
What to avoid
In general, it's best to avoid bright, wild or heavy patterns, and short sleeves.
Avoid clothes that wrinkle easily.
Avoid fake tans.
Avoid jewellery that will date.
