Get Shopping. Begin planning your outfits, placing any online orders. Make sure you have everything you need to complete each outfit. Here is a list of my favourite great menswear stores in Basel. Check out Pelikamo, Capaul, Marc O’POLO, John Tweed, COS for some new pieces in your wardrobe. You will look put together and more handsome than usual.

Check out my pinterest board for some more inspiration.

Start Stretching & Workout. Try to stretch for 20 minutes each day before your shoot. Especially your neck, back. Do some form of exercise, something that you enjoy will help you de-stress. You will sure look and feel your best on your photo shoot.

Begin a Skincare Regimen. Wash your face nightly, exfoliate your face. We have transition to this great line of organic, sustainable nasties free skin care Ringana from Austria.

Visit the Dentist. Book an appointment. Get a regular cleaning and whiten your teeth can always boost your confidence. If you want an English speaking dentist, Garry Bonsall is your man.

Please keep in mind that these tips are just guidelines 
These are not hard and fast rules, as there are always exceptions to rules. Have fun!

You just booked and confirmed the session! Your portrait session is coming up in about 4 weeks. Let’s get ready for your photoshoot!

KEY POINTS

  • Book appointments

  • Workout

  • Eat well

  • Get inspire

  • Write keywords about yourself

I like you to really pay attention to yourself and give yourself a “star treatments” the coming weeks, because you, my dear, are the star of your photoshoot, and out of all people, you deserve all the care and love towards yourself. 

Book Appointments. Book your hair/waxing appointment at least one week before shoot.

Workout. We all know how important is fitness. Workout 2-3 times a week will help with your overall well-being, de-stress from your day. If you are looking for a Personal Trainer to get you in form in 4 weeks, I highly recommend Ilias Lampri. He is not only a personal trainer, fitness model, he is also a certified nutritionist. So he really knows his stuff.

Eat Well & Hydration. Healthy eating & hydration is essential to looking good and feeling good.

Get Inspire. Go through my gallery and Pinterest board and pin you fav image. Take screenshoots of the images you like. And share them with me. I can see what you like most in terms of poses, styling & background. We don’t copy but get inspire to work toward that direction. No two shoots are the same. You will always get something unique and custom made for you and your brand.

Write Keywords. What are you personality characteristics & strengths, how about your favourite features? Write down keywords in a journal on who you are today, who you want to present to your audience with your new portraits.

If you can then share some of those insights with me, I’ll be better able to capture you.

I am driven, determine, I don’t give up easily, I mean business, I am a humorous, friendly guy who loves adventures. I love my work. I am sporty and strong....


Thank you for reading this all the way to the end. I promise to keep other other tips short and sweet. I am so super excited to photograph you! Are you?

That’s it for now, you can follow these tips and do them in the coming weeks.
I will be sending you a couple more reminders & tips. Please let me know if you need help anyway. Remember to have fun with this.
