FYEO Manchester is giving away 100 mini photo shoots this January. If you want to start the year on a high, we suggest you try to win one. When you see how good these photographers make you look, you'll be smiling right through to summer and beyond. For a sure-fire confidence boost and all-round inspiring experience, this ticks all the boxes.
The photo shoot experience goes something like this. You arrive feeling at their city centre studio feeling about as glamorous as a bin man. They take you into the makeover room and give you sultry eye make-up and mussed-up hair like some 1960s starlet. You then go into the studio where a female photographer takes shots of you in various revealing outfits that you've brought along (just how revealing is entirely up to you). Then they show you how the photographs came out – and you gawp in amazement at how beautiful you look.
The shoot itself is fun rather than intimidating – it's only you and the lady photographer in the room and you're given step-by-step instructions on how to smoulder for the camera.
The images look fantastic because they use ultra-flattering lighting and skin smoothing techniques. Yet it is still 100% recognisably you – the make-up looks entirely natural on the portraits and airbrushing is kept to a minimum.
Each one is worth £75 and includes camera-ready make-up, a 40 minute photo shoot and your best shot as a photographic print.
