Styling advice for men – a splash of color!

Men! Color is an important element of your personal brand and individual style. In preparation for a photo session I suggest to start with the base colors of dark grays, browns and blues and then consider adding a splash of color to the mix.  If you’re outdoorsy, a bright down jacket can make a bold, eyecatching statement.

In a sea of gray and brown a splash of COLOR can help your online dating photos stand out from the crowd.  Take a peak in your closet and look for rust, maroon, mustard yellow, greens or shades of blue. Plaid shirts are a good place to start for easy color pops, also consider sweaters for interesting color variety.  If you are feeling stuck, think about colored neck buff or wool scarf  to pair with a solid shirt or colored knit cap or beanie. Sometimes just a small pop of color can make a big difference. In the photo below, I love how the client paired a cool brown jacket with yellow plaid shirt and a touch of accent yellow in the hat.

As your online dating photographer, I intentionally seek out color splashes that make interesting backgrounds for your online dating photos and that coordinate with your clothing choices and overall vibe.  Inspiration can come from street art, building facades, metal, brick, or folliage.  Depending on your personality and style we can work together to make your online dating photos come to life with color, texture and visual interest.

Remember, preparation is key!  Spend some time before your photo session to choose shirts and jackets that you feel good in.  Part of the pre-session consultaion consists of styling advice so you we can make your online dating photos looks great!
