This was one of my favorite sessions in a long while. Luc was laid back and debonair, and it made for a shoot that was comfortable and over too quickly. I love getting to be creative, and since I have to be that way for a living, I love life all the more! It’s a privilege to photograph these young guys and gals, and seeing where some of them end up has been such a fun honor. Each of them have a unique look to them, and it’s so interesting to see their own personal styles in just their outfits. Among all of the styles that I see, a common theme is a professional look. Which makes sense, because it’s a professional photo session, but even with this theme there’s so much diversity and style.
These days, it’s easy to find professional clothing that won’t break your bank account. For photo shoots, it’s best to have multiple outfits to change into during your session, to add some interest and to make it seem like you don’t just have one pair of pants and a t-shirt to your name. There’s quite a range of fashion available, so your style will fit right in while standing out. Since we’re in the colder months, sweaters are in, and they’re a great blend of fashion and function. They’ll keep you looking good and feeling warm! H&M have a great swath of sweaters to choose from, and each one will be great for your photo session.
JCrew Factory has a fantastic page for getting to know what to wear to fight off the cold with great fashion, and the picture examples they have should give you lots of ideas on what to bring along for your session. Take the time to browse through each of their pages to get a good idea on what would work best for you, and if you like what you see, you can order straight from their website! An oft forgotten accessory for guys is the belt. A belt will usually be the thing to pull your whole look together, besides just holding up your pants. GAP has a great listing of accessories on their website, where you’ll find tons of options for belts, and hats, bags, ties, and much more. And everything they have is right in step with modern fashion, so you’ll find just what you need for your session there!
Picking out your outfits for your professional photos should be a stress-free experience, and it should be fun, since you get to keep all of your stylish picks afterwards! Luc had an effortless style to him, and everything he had picked out was just right for his style. Take the time to plan your outfits, and you’ll only have thanks for yourself later on when you look back on your pictures. Hopefully the above will make the whole finding process easier for you, too. Happy hunting!
