Along with understanding cameras and knowing how to create that perfect shot, a photographer also needs to fulfill several other roles and guiding clients on what to wear to a photoshoot is one of them. Being a designer, psychologist, and comedian are some of the others. Basically, you do whatever it takes to get the perfect shot.
Having a perfectly dressed client walk into a photo session is means you’ll have something new to add to your website or portfolio. Well-dressed customers also exude a natural confidence and make it easy for you to capture great shots but unfortunately, not all clients know what to wear when having their photos taken. With the right guidance and education, however, you can experience more fuss-free photoshoots.
You will have clients who know exactly what they want, making it easier to recommend specific clothing, hair, and makeup styles but there will be clients who really aren’t sure what they want their pictures to reflect so it’s up to you to help them figure this out in order to prepare for your shoot.
Sometimes the easiest way to guide clients is to show them. By creating a few Pinterest boards that clients can use for inspiration, you won’t always need to give the same suggestions to clients who are booked for specific shoots. Create boards based on shoot, location or theme to make it even easier to guide clients.
