1. Rings

Mix up your look by introducing statement rings into your outfit. Rings can add a touch of sophistication to your outfit and always look amazing on camera. Bring a variety of different rings to your shoot – you can layer them or simply opt for a single vibrant staple ring.

2. Wide Brimmed Hat

You can easily throw on a wide brimmed hat during photoshoot and straightaway you will have created a whole new look. A wide brimmed hat is one of those rare photoshoot accessories that can transform the vibe of your whole look. Whilst you may think hats should be reserved for wear outside, they produce a chill, boho vibe when worn in photos. A wide brimmed hat is an essential accessory to bring to your photoshoot for both men and women.

3. Watch

It’s about time you wore a watch in your photoshoot! Watches are a classic accessory that can jazz up your look. They are also incredibly versatile; you can wear a watch with a suit or it will look equally good when worn with a simple t-shirt and jeans, making it one of the best photoshoot accessories.

One accessory which is perfect to experiment with during your photoshoot are sunglasses. You can’t go wrong with classic ray bans – but play around with different coloured lenses and even reflective sunglasses. Sunglasses can tie together your whole look and elevate your cool factor by a gazillion.

6. Cap

We’ve already covered that wide brimmed hats are one of the essential photoshoot accessories – but we can’t forget about another type of hat, the cap. Caps are perfect for casual, streetwear and urban photoshoot looks. Make sure you have a cap on hand during your photoshoot if you care shooting these types of looks.

7. Bracelets

It can be easy to forget to bring along bracelets to your photoshoot because after all, your face and body are being photographed, not your wrists. But bracelets can add extra interest to your photos, showcase your edgy side, or be layered to create different textures in photos. They are perfect photoshoot accessories because they look great with each and every photoshoot look!

Not only do sunglasses look amazing in photos – so do regular glasses! If you have glasses with unique frames or that make you feel like yourself, bring them along to your shoot.

10. Bags

Throwing a bag over your shoulder can add movement to a shot and look awesome on camera. Bags can be fun to experiment with during your shoot – a handbag, back pack and even a duffel bag can show off your playful side and make your shots stands out. We suggest bringing along a couple of bag options to shoot with.
