Photography Brief

For each look you will need to submit a before photo and video, and after photos and video of your completed model.

The photographs & videos should be taken against a white background/backdrop, using a smartphone only with no filters. 

  1. Take one ‘before’ photo of your model, front on. Also take a before video (no more than 10 seconds long, it’s easier if you stand still and ask your model to slowly turn).
  2. Create your look, completing the Color Talent Technique form for every step including color selection, formula, sectioning, placement, technique, development time, choice of cut, technique, sectioning, styling & finish methods, products used. Make sure your writing is clear so the judges can read your technique form.
  3. Take three photos and one video (all against a plain white background) of your model:
  • Front on
  • Side on
  • Back
  • Video (no more than 10 seconds long, it’s easier if you stand still and ask your model to slowly turn).

Please label the photos and videos you’re sending with your name and category i.e. ‘Sara Smith short category Before photo’, ‘Sara Smith short category Before video’ ‘Sara Smith short category After photo front’,  ‘Sara Smith short category After photo side’,  ‘Sara Smith short category After photo back’, ‘Sara Smith after video'
