World-famous fashion photographer Mario Testino is headed to our shores and every fashionista worth her Instagram followers is asking: 'how can I get snapped?'.

Other than being really, incredibly good looking or a regular model for Vogue Australia -- he'll be here to guest edit the magazine -- we have a few cheeky suggestions sure to widen his aperture based on his Instagram photos.

Go smart casual

Testino obviously loves the interplay between strong and dapper. Well either that or he's in on a hilarious joke with the guys at Kook Of The Day who exist to shame, well, Kooks who wear wetsuits at inappropriate times.

One way or another, if you can rock this look, we reckon Testino won't be able to look away.

Take your pets for a walk

A posse of alpacas really take #SquadGoals to new heights.

Get in, loser, we're going llama shopping.

Make your next status a statue

You want to date someone steady, your rock, who has all the time in the world to stare in your general direction while you take photos.

This statuesque stunner seems about right but it already has a little (Kate) Moss growing on it.

Suffer for your art

Replace your Hollywood tape with gaffa tape and tada! Art.

Testino will love it. He just better come soon before the tape loses its stick.

Unleash your outer animal

This is the man himself impelled to snap a photo of a real, live bear.

This could be you -- channel your spirit animal and wait for the internationally renowned photographer to appear.

Be your true, authentic self

At the end of the day, Testino has an ability to see beauty in his subjects -- famous or otherwise -- so the only genuine way to catch Testino's eye is simply to be yourself.

But a few llamas wouldn't go astray.
