Who are you?
My name is Scott Endersby and I am a HEADSHOT SPECIALIST.I have photographed over
400 headshots throughout the years.I have been trained to look at the fine details and what can
make or break a good headshot.
Thank you to Peter Hurley for capturing my personal Headshot below.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR INDIVIDUAL HEADSHOTS?
It can take up to 45 mins, depending on outfit changes or makeup touchups.
BUT I DON'T LIKE MY PHOTO TAKEN?
Don't worry!I will coach you throughout the session how to pose and will make this session fun and enjoyable. Have no fear, Scott Endersby is here.
Simplifying your headshot preparation, focus on getting a good night's rest, staying hydrated, and limiting alcohol consumption leading up to the shoot. Approach the session with a positive and carefree attitude, making it an enjoyable and stress-free experience. By being relaxed and at ease, you'll exude natural confidence and radiate self-assurance in front of the camera
WHAT TO WEAR
For added options, bring along an extra outfit or two to your headshot session. It's better to have more choices than not enough, just make sure everything is wrinkle-free and lint/hair-free. Opt for solid colored clothing with a simple design, in medium to dark shades that won't detract from your face. Earth tones are usually a safe bet. Remember, the most important thing is that you feel confident and comfortable in what you wear, regardless of the season
The same guidelines apply to more formal attire such as suits and jackets, especially as we may still need to present a professional image at times despite working from home. Steer clear of eye-catching patterns that take attention away from your face, and opt for understated patterns or solid, medium to dark shades that compliment your features and make you feel confident. This also applies to shirts, where it's best to avoid patterns.
The key is to keep your makeup approach natural and understated. A light application of concealer and foundation is acceptable, but it's best to steer clear of heavy powder as it can dull studio lighting. Subtly enhance your look with a pop of lip color, filled-in eyebrows, and mascara. A light touch of blush to add a healthy glow is okay as well. I suggest avoiding eyeliner, which can be overpowering in close-up shots. The general rule of thumb: opt for minimal makeup for the best results.
If you're considering a haircut, allow about a week for it to settle before your photo shoot. Use your regular hair products to style it as you normally would for maximum confidence. The main challenge from a photography perspective is managing flyaways, which can be time-consuming in post-production. To help with this, it's useful to keep hair taming products on hand, both in the studio and from your own collection.
SHAVING & BEARDAGE
You're free to attend your photo shoot with or without facial hair, depending on your preference. Consider the purpose of your headshots when making this decision, or bring an electric shaver to have both options. If you have a beard, make sure it's styled to your liking for the best results in your shots. This means trimming it to its best appearance right before the photo shoot.
For a headshot, it's best to keep accessories to a minimum as they can distract from your appearance. Simple earrings, such as studs, can be acceptable, but necklaces, drop earrings, and other pieces should be avoided for the best results. The focus of the image should be you and nothing should detract from that.
