What to wear for a photoshoot?

I've worked with many models and have learned that preparation and right selection of clothing and accessories is crucial to a successful photoshoot. Here are some clothing suggestions for a photoshoot that can help you look your best.

“The art of photography is all about directing the attention of the viewer.”
– Steven Pinker

Tip #1 - Pick clothing that shows off your best features

Choose clothing that flatters your body type and showcases your best features. Form-fitting pieces that accentuate your curves or muscles will be ideal. For example, men may consider wearing fitted t-shirts or vest with slim-fitting jeans or shorts. For women, crop tops together with high-waisted leggings or shorts can create a flattering silhouette.

Tip #2 - Accessorise with a leather jacket

A timeless accessory that can give your photos a splash of attitude and make you stand out is a leather jacket. A leather jacket may be worn practically anywhere, whether you're shooting inside or outside. Wear a leather jacket with jeans and (with or without) t-shirt or tank top for a more relaxed impression. Layer a leather jacket over a dress or skirt for a more polished appearance.

Tip #3 - Experiment with swimwear and underwear

Swimwear and underwear are some of the most exposed and striking apparel choices for a photo session. Invest in well-fitting, comfortable clothing, but don't be afraid to experiment with new colours, patterns, and fashion trends. To stand out, go with a cool design or a striking colour for your swimwear. Choose underwear that makes you feel confident and fits your body shape properly. Fitted boxer briefs can improve a man's body, while high-waisted briefs and sports bras can make a woman appear wonderful.

Tip #4 - Choose comfortable, stylish shoes

Choose footwear that is both comfy and fashionable. Ankle boots or heels will give you a sophisticated style, while trainers or sandals might work nicely for a more relaxed appearance. Choose footwear that are comfortable, gives you freedom of movement and confidence when shooting.

Tip #5 - Accessories

Accessories can add an extra layer of interest to your outfit and help you stand out. Consider adding a stylish watch or bracelet, a statement necklace, or even a hat or pair of sunglasses to your ensemble. Just be careful not to overdo it - you don't want to distract from your physique or the overall vibe of the shoot.

Tip #6 - Coordinate your outfits with the overall vibe of the shoot

The overall vibe and theme of the photoshoot should also be considered when selecting clothing and accessories. For a sleek and polished look, choose pieces that are clean and minimalistic. For a more casual and laid-back vibe, consider mixing and matching different textures and fabrics. Pairing distressed denim shorts with a lightweight cotton t-shirt can create a casual and effortless look.

In conclusion . . .

Selecting the right clothing and accessories is an important part of preparing for a fitness photoshoot. Choose pieces that flatter your body type, experiment with textures and fabrics, and don't be afraid to have fun with swimwear and underwear. By considering the overall vibe and theme of the shoot, you can create a cohesive and eye-catching look that showcases your physique to the fullest.
