EXTRA TIPS:

Wear clothing that is minimalistic - solid colors over patterns.

Bring 3-4 different outfit changes, whatever is suitable in your (profession eg. a suit or a chef's hat).

For women, keep your makeup and jewelry simple.

It's always best to be properly groomed to have a professional finish.

Work with natural daylight as much as possible.

To get over any awkwardness, bring a friend along to the shoot to ease your nerves.

Always bring a smile!
