How much are headshots?
Do you shoot on-location in natural light, or in the studio?
There are advantages to working in the studio – no wind to mess up hair, restrooms, wardrobe rack, parking, music, etc. – but some folks love the outdoor asthetic. So do I! Of course, if it’s raining or too cold, we can’t work outdoors.
How long does a session take?
I tend to work fairly quickly, but I will always take as much time as needed (within reason) to get you what you need. My 3-look package takes about 90 minutes – 2 hours.
When will I get my photos?
Usually, your first (proofs) gallery will be delivered within a week.
Do I get to download all my session proofs?
NO. But, kinda!
All the images shot, give or take, will be available for you to review. I guarantee you won’t love (or need) them all, but you’ll probably love about half – and those you may have! They won’t be retouched, but you may certainly have them. These “selects” (your Revised Gallery) will be downloadable once you have reviewed your initial, Proofs Gallery.
How many images get retouched?
It depends on the package you purchase, and you can always buy retouching a la carte. For more info about prices, please click here.
What should I wear?
It depends on what kinds of roles you are going out for. Typically, an actor will need a Theatrical (serious) and a Commercial (smiling) shot. Darker colors are usually appropriate for for theatrical photos, and colors are nice for commercial. Traditionally, busy patterns are distracting, but don’t be afraid to show your style when selecting your wardrobe. Layers often work well, so don’t hesitate to bring stylish jackets (denim, leather, etc.). V-Neck sweaters over button up shirts with a tie can work well for some folks. If you wear glasses regularly, bring them so we can photograph that look. If you are more of a character actor, or are notoriously expressive, make sure you bring wardrobe that supports that idea. If you are often going in for executive types or lawyers, make sure you bring some professional wear. No logos on clothing, no costumes, and no jewelry.
You might need a full-length (head to toe) shot. I find that teenagers and youth often need this look, so if this is you, make sure you are styled from your shoes up!
Once we have connected via Email or phone, we can talk more in person about your choices.
Should I hire a Makeup Artist?
We can talk more about this on the phone.
Do you do headshots for stage (theatre) and on-camera actors?
Do you do business/corporate headshots?
Do you work with kids?
YES! All ages!
I have two kids. Is there a discount if we book both kids for the same session.
YES! Let’s discuss. Call me.
If you have a talent agent, make sure you have discussed your headshot plan with them, as they will probably have some advice and input.
