Guys be creative, think strong bold colours not just predictable greys and blues! You might own 7 pairs of blue jeans but basically they will all look the same, so please don't bring them all. Think night out @ Platinum Lace rather than drinks down the Queen Vic!
Military, sporty, urban edge, spread the range of looks from super smart to street casual. Bring 5-6 distinctive looks, shorts, jumpers, coats all help to build a visual image. Get or borrow a suit if you can, It's the absolute best investment for quality photos you could make, Asda/Tescos sell them for around £35-£45, they're shit but photo well. For good value gear think about Matalan, TK Maxx and Choice get on line too the likes of M&M direct, boohoo and asos.
Borrow gear if you need to. It will help spread your range of styles.
Don't shave, then shave when we have a few pics in the bag.
Look at images in Men's Health and GQ magazine for ideas.
Topless might work well for you if you are after fitness style images!
Get out your comfort zone, not just with fashion but with a range of expressions for the camera. Smile! don't just stick to one look, you'll look one dimensional and bored! Connect with your images, draw the viewer in with a range of emotions it will really create a great set of images.
