Prepare for a Headshot Session

How do I prepare for my headshot session?

Headshots will be provided a maximum of once per year to full-time faculty and staff who may need to represent the College with professional portrait photography for the following reasons: publications, speaking engagement material, Canvas profile.

Headshots are either photographed from the waist up in the Marketing Studio or in a predetermined outdoor location on SLM Campus. The studio is located on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus in room C 100-M.

  • Decide which clothing colors, patterns, styles or accessories you prefer to represent your personality. Make sure clothes are ironed.
  • Be sure to check our mirror and use the provided supplies if necessary. Studio lights tend to emphasize skin shine, fly-aways, lint, and clothing wrinkles. The use of oil absorbing sheets and/or powder is recommended. Remember to check buttons and jewelry clasp placement.
  • Trust the photographer and have fun! Remember you’re being guided by a professional who knows how to make you look your best.
  • The photographer will direct you, but don’t be afraid to bring ideas of your own.  
  • We do minimal editing so you look like you. If there is something you’re concerned about, let the photographer know during your session.
  • Before you leave, you will have the opportunity to view your photos and select your favorite 1-2 images.  
  • As soon as your photos have been processed, they will be available to download through PhotoShelter.
