Photographing Senior Guys
High school senior guys may not take having senior portraits done quite as seriously as many of their female classmates. But the senior portrait is just as important for senior boys. Senior portraits are an important commemoration and milestone that should be treated as a momentous occasion.
Guys should be sure to prepare for their senior portraits by having their hair cut not too soon before the session. A good rule of thumb is that you want to get the senior portraits taken at about the half-way point between haircuts. So if he usually gets his hair cut every five weeks, then about two and a half weeks after his last haircut is probably perfect timing.
Guys should also be sure to come to their session clean shaven. As one of the best senior photographers in Lake County, IL., I can tell you that editing out stubble can be time-consuming and expensive, and a five o’clock shadow, mustache or beard is usually not the best look for a teenaged guy.
Zanzucchi Photography specializes in Senior Portraits and our expertise in the use of props and poses is guaranteed to bring out your individual style and personality. Photographing senior guys with sports equipment, band instruments or other extra-curricular related props is a great choice. Using an interesting old suitcase, chair or couch is another interesting touch. Bring whatever it is that says…”This Is Me” and we’ll be sure to include it in your photos in a unique and creative way. Setting
