Email John Hawley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 904.333.3527 to schedule your shoot.
For the Ladies;
1)Dressy such as a dress or outfit typical of how you dress up when going out (some accessories such as ear rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc are all good); somethings in your style,
2)Casual. Similar to the classy in your own style. Yet, a bit more slick and fashionable for the camera as if you were transported to a point in life where the paparazzi were shooting you while on your way to the store or hanging out wtih friends at an outdoor cafe.
3)Fitness ware: booty shorts, capris, sports bra, etc. You may or may not want brand labels appearing depending on your marketing purposes.
3)Swimwear for photoshoot not functional suit. A good opportunity (excuse) to purchase that suit you always wanted, but know you will never wear to the beach.
For the Gentlemen:
1) Dressy & fashionable. Your best threads for showing off you can look like a million bucks! If you don’t wear dress clothes please don’t show up with a tie and white shirt, but if you do go to clubs and have a few favorite outfits for instance bring those. Push the envelop as this an opportunity to live out your vision for yourself on camer.
2) Sporty. Your gear most suited for looking like the fitness model emblazoned on the cover of a fitness publication.
3) Casual. Somewhat like the fashionable look how want to be seen on the streets as if relaxing to show off that you’ve got game and are confidant and can be easy going. Stylish though as you want to project a confident vibe.
4) Swimwear that shows off your physique in your own style, but please it should reflect you moreso that be an awkward display that doesn't highlight your physique, lines and color.
COLORS: Black & White are hues not colors. Like a white canvas looks better when other colors are applied remember your images will be best where there are a variety of colors even if you are a big fan of only wearing black for instance. We discourage the loading up wardrobe changes especially with lots of black for outdoor shoots. Its a good choice for select shots where we can find contrast such as light colored backgrounds or white and indoors, but otherwise a mix of bright colors, pastels and patterned materials is preferable.
We can shoot before competition tanning or after if this is book around a fitness competition. If after its nice to try and make sure the tan stays as even as possible and not blotchy or green. Often if a tanning service if you inform them you have a photoshoot afterwards they will touch you up before leaving the show.
HAIR & MAKEUP:
We do not provide hair and makeup services. However, we can typically recommend one.
-Makeup is helpful and yes for guys as well particularly if you have a few blemishes that can easily be covered up. With the volume of shots we provide there is typically no photoshopping of images. We do bring all images into Lightroom for light adjustments, but not an image by image touchup that can be better served with a bit of makeup before the shoot.
Be careful of getting lipstick on teeth or using certain makeup products if in weather conditions that might cause running, etc. Plus, try to keep your photoshoot apparel such as the dresses and dress shirts wrinkle free. This can be difficult in the hustle and bustle of show prep. Most of your apparel can be tossed in a gym bag or fill the trunk of your automobile without problem, but the more fashionable shots tend to not be permanent press. A hand towel to wipe away sweat is handy along with products such as Muscle Juice posing oil and Covergirl concealer both of which we typically have available at shoots at no additional charge.
