Prior to the day of your shoot: You will have a consultation with Troy by phone. He will discuss each aspect of the day and you will discuss creative ideas which is broken down into makeup, hairstyling and photography, working out what really excites you so that everyone involved in your shoot truly understands what you want and what works best for you on camera. You’ll be able to flick through albums and peer at Troy’s gallery of beauty portraits for inspiration to gain a better understanding of what to expect from your photo shoot. The excitement starts here!
Troy’s tips on how to prepare and make the most of your glamorous day.
- Wash your hair the night before your appointment : Wear your hair free of any styling products and avoid wearing any makeup. Please prepare all of your hair pieces, extensions and manicure prior to the day of your shoot. All pieces should be clean.
- Please aim to arrive 15 minutes early: Allow for your appointment to be between 4-5 hours from start to finish. - Maximize your shoot by bringing a variety of your favorite outfits: casual, evening, smart dress, lingerie & accessories as well as whatever was discussed during your consultation meeting with Troy. The more options the better. If your are using Troy’s wardrobe stylist be sure you give them accurate sizes and measurements so they can pull everything to fit you.
- Consider what your portraits will be for: For most they are simply a keepsake, professional or a gift for a family member or partner. You may want a new professional pic to use for your business or want to indulge and treat yourself to a glamorous photo-shoot for your birthday. Whatever the reason be assured it will be amazing!
Troy wants you to be able to make your final image selections in the privacy of your own home. We advise each client to bring a portable hard drive to download the shoot onto. Depending on time Troy may ask you to leave the hard-drive with his production team who will down load your hard-drive the next day and arrange for you to pick it up.
- Due to the special nature of these packages setting up a timeline for turning in your final selections for retouching will ensure a faster turn around. Once the shoot in complete your images will be processed and you will receive a drive with your images on it. Troy’s production manager will advise what type of hard drive to bring. You can find them at your local BestBuy.
