Want to create great images of your hair work, but not sure where to start? Well you’re in the right place. Today I’m joined by the award-winning hair photographer, Dan Thomas, as he will be sharing his gold nugget tips on how to get the best from you’re next collections photoshoot, and that won’t break the bank. For those of you simply wanting to capture your clients hair looks there and then from your phone, then Dan’s also got you covered in this podcast today.

Dan’s here to help guide you on photographing your hair work – whether you’re a seasoned pro or newbie. Maybe you want to get into the studio with a professional team to photograph your next awards collection, but wondering, is it realistically out of my reach? How you could make it happen on a limited budget? Or maybe you’re creating great looks on your clients and need your photographs taken of them to do you work justice when sharing out on social media? We’re to tick this all off.

Having photographs of you hair work plays an important role to you as hair professional. They can the make the difference in helping to raise you’re industry profile that brings new opportunities and clients your way. These photographs tells everyone the hair professional you are. Get them photos wrong and they could damage both your brand and wallet. Get them right, BINGO!!! They could viral around the globe.

After hearing this conversation, I hope you’re biting at the bit to start photographing your hair work again post-lockdown. And for those of you wanting to go deeper with photographing your own hair work on your clients, the tune into this weeks ‘HTCI Premium’ podcast show with Dan Thomas right HERE.
