How to Look Good in Pictures


Ever wonder how professional models ALWAYS look good in pictures? Besides the fact that most are insanely gorgeous/ thin/ have great hair/ yada, yada, yada… they know what looks good in photos, and what doesn’t. So just in time for prom pics and summer vacation photos, we decided to share a little insider knowledge about how to look smokin’ in pictures–even if you’re not Giselle.

Some picture perfect posing tips:

-Try something different. A foot movement or hip pop can create a whole new look.

-Put on a new face and practice it in the mirror. Practice showing emotion through your eyes when you are smiling or not. Try and connect with the other side of the camera.

-Look both ways. Don’t be afraid to pose looking away from the camera. Great shots often come when you are looking away (either with your eyes or when your head is turned).

-Be flexible. Pose with a knee bent for the most flattering look. (Avoid that bowlegged look at all costs!)

-Nixs on the ’80’s. Look at an ’80’s prom picture. Look closer. See that? Everything there, that’s what you want to avoid.

More of a visual learner? Check out how the Swell girls get it done for some inspiration.

New at Swell: Mavericks


Bigger is better. And Mavericks is one brand that represents a group with the biggest cojones of them all. From the Northern California break that sponsors one of the most insane waves in the world, Mavericks represents fierce competition, thunderous swells, and waves that would make even the manliest of man wet his panties. It’s gear from the legendary Mavericks; gear that might as well come with a extra set of metric wrenches to aid your manhood. And no, the tees do not come in fuchsia.
