Whatever you feel comfortable working in? Jeans+t-shirt?

Long pants and a modest T-shirt should do fine for most occasions. Just don'tshow up with a Slipknot/slayer/iron mayden T shirt or something similar.

Anyone who knows me personally also knows I should be the the last one to offer advice on fashion :oops: but...

If this is going to be a career thing for you why not establish an image for yourself? While you'd obviously want and need to be recognised by your work it can't hurt to also stand out from the boring crowd of T-shirted also rans. :P I'm not thinking anything extreme but if you could decide on a particular style while still remaining smart and casual but with just enough flamboyance that people around you might notice, if only subliminally, then that might help as, at the end of the day, you are selling yourself as well as your work.

Bob.

It really depends on the location of the shoot, e.g out in the field wear something warm and watertight, if you are going to be running around a lot shooting from different angels then wear something comfortable and non restrictive, if your on location in someones house or posh location then go smart.

Though you cant beat the smart casual nice denims, plain black t-shirt and nice pair of clark shoes.

Eisenstaedt was always wearing black tie and it apparently worked out pretty well.

As casual as possible. Working must be done in very comfortable clothes.

Personaly I would wear a relatively casual jeans and loose shirt, maybe a t-shirt underneath if its a little colder. But you must always be presentable.

I usually wear the most comfortable, loose, baggy stuff going... never know what position you are going to be in. Ony your feet, hands, kness, back, belly... as well as outside... the grass or ground might be wet... muddy.... if the weather/temperature allows I usually go for baggy cargo shorts (lots of pockets to keep stuff in) and a T-shirt.

that's just me though

I think a true photographer, would wear a loose t-shit or polo, and some long, baggy cargo shorts.
I suppose "those" people, that shoot fashion and all that might go for something a bit more fashionable though.. Jeans, and a black button up shirt, not tucked in??
