I was wondering if anyone has experience shooting headshots for beauty pageant contestants. I have been contacted by a contestant who has won her city in the Mrs. America contest and is now moving on to the state competition and she needs a headshot for the "photogenic" portion of the contest. She said the only guidelines were that the image has to be a black and white 8x10. I was just wondering if anyone had shot these before and could lend some advice as to what the judges would be looking for.

Thanks,
Daryl

The judges will be looking for a nice clean headshot. Nothing fancy. The key is to show the model clearly without shadows, heavy makeup etc. Think more along the lines of an actors headshot than a glamour headshot... if that makes any sense.



Actually, this one is NOT what they would be looking for! Best I could do on short notice!

Good luck

A client of mine, Lindsey, used this shot for her Miss Texas USA headshot. She is the reigning Miss McLennan county. You can just log on to any of the pageant sites to see what style the girls are using.
