Get a good night’s sleep:

This is really important for you to look your best. If you know you will have trouble falling asleep the night before, you can try taking 400 mg of magnesium 30 minutes before bedtime. Magnesium stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system (nighttime nervous system) and helps you fall asleep without making you groggy in the morning.

 

 

Plan your outfits:

Communicate your outfit choices with the photographer in the days prior to the shoot. This will save time on the day of your shoot. You and the photographer can decide which outfits will work best and the photographer can also start planning the shots in his mind.

Bring 1-2 more outfits than you plan on wearing. This will give you extra options in case something doesn’t work out or the color you picked doesn’t go well with the scene.

Also, bring a large towel, blanket or bathrobe to change outfits in.

 

 

Communicate with the photographer:

When you’re about to leave for the location, text or call the photographer to let them know you are on your way. Over the years, I’ve noticed that the most successful models always confirm the time and location, and let me know when they’re leaving.

Show up about 15 minutes early. If it’s your first time driving to a location, give yourself an extra 30 minutes more than you anticipate in case you have difficulty finding the spot.

 

Allow enough time for makeup:

Give yourself enough time to do your hair and makeup. If you are hiring a MUA, make sure the MUA knows what time you need to start driving to your shoot location. If you need to leave the MUA at 6 am, then it’s a good idea to tell the MUA that you need to be done by 5:40 am.

 

Plan your poses:

If you are fairly new to modeling, it’s a good idea to find pictures you like and start practicing poses in the mirror. This will help you feel more comfortable during the shoot and yield better results.

 

 

Analyze how you can improve:

After your shoot, it’s always a good idea to review the images and figure out what you could do better for next time. I provide my models an online proof gallery (with watermarks) so the models can make their photo selections and see what they can improve upon. Always discuss with your photographer before the shoot to know if they will allow you to see all the images. Every photographer has different thoughts on this.
