Best Model Headshots Tips

1. Clothing

The primary reason agencies hire models is to promote products. Therefore, when choosing clothes, models should opt for neutral, well-fitting outfits, as they are most versatile. Timeless attire such as dresses, or sweaters provide a classic polished look.

However, there are a few things to avoid. Anything that distracts from the model's features, such as branded clothes, items with large logos, or other busy designs, should be avoided.

2. Background or Backdrop

Since most model headshots are taken inside a studio, it's easier to select a background. The go-to options are neutral colors, which work well as backgrounds since they allow the focus of the shot to remain on the model's expressions. The most common colors used are grey, white, and beige. While complex backgrounds can work, they may slightly distract the viewer, so solid colors are your safest bet.

3. Pose

When it comes to modeling, the pose signifies the model's presence, uniqueness, and personality, so it should be taken seriously. A relaxed and neutral pose is the best to project high levels of self-confidence.

You could also add a smile - genuine friendly smiles are brilliant choice.
For those with great hair, consider a shot with the classic hand-on-hair pose, creating a glamorous atmosphere. Another option is a shot with the hand on the chin, which creates an interesting look.

4. Lighting

When selecting lighting for a model headshot, several options should be considered.
The first option is using a ring light, a well-known lighting equipment that provides circular lights to the shoot. When the camera is placed in the middle of the ring, the light created spreads evenly throughout the shot without creating any shadows.

The second option is using softboxes, commonly chosen for their ability to create soft, subtle lighting. The last option is natural light, utilizing a natural light source such as a window.

The main goal of these lighting options is to minimize shadows, to showcase the model's features and facial expressions.

Frequently asked

How take model headshots with AI?
Arrow down icon
We made the whole process as easy and streamlined possible. After the purchase, you will need to upload 8–10 selfies so AI can start working. You can create them right here on our website with our own AI Photobooth feature. No app downloads are needed; everything works in your browser. Alternatively, you can always just select and upload photos manually.
Why do you need so many selfies?
Arrow down icon
The current state-of-the-art AI needs a handful of your photos to be able to generate professional headshots with your face for the best fidelity, quality, and precision. With this approach, you receive the most realistic headshots on the market from the comfort of your own home. Soon, only a single photo will be enough.
What are requirements for manually uploaded photos?
Arrow down icon
AI needs high-quality head and shoulders profile photos of you — no blurry, retouched, or photos with other people. Photos with sunglasses, hats, headphones, or other objects covering your face will result in bad results.
How do you use my photos?
Arrow down icon
We use them only to generate AI headshots. We will delete all your data immediately upon request; otherwise - your photos are deleted automatically after 7 days. AI models are deleted automatically after 30 days. We have these timings only to be able to create new, re-generate, or otherwise fix your results through support requests.
Is it safe to process my photos with AI?
Arrow down icon
We don't sell, re-sell, train our AI, or otherwise use your photos in any way that is not related to providing an AI Hedshots service to you. The SnapHeadshots company is based in Europe and complies with the local personal data regulations. Your photos are stored in an encrypted environement, separate from your account and without your personal data.
Do you have specific solution for larger teams?
Arrow down icon
We have streamlined our processes as much as possible, so anyone can create perfect headshots easily. However, we still need to adapt this process for HR and managers alike, so you can just send several shortlinks to your 10, 100, or even 1000 employees, and they can complete the process fast and easily. Stay tuned for updates; they are coming very soon.
