I will shoot a minimum of 4 different looks in your session. Shooting a wide range of looks will allow you to have multiple shots available to you. I don't put a strict number on shots per look. Most of my headshots will be framed horizontally, although I will shoot 3/4 and vertical shots if necessary.
I will usually shoot between 150 and 200 pictures and you will end up with somewhere between 40 and 65 shots approved for final use.
Once you leave the studio the approved shots will be placed on a password protected website. You will be able to give the password to family, friends, agents or anyone else you want to show your photos to. This is a perfect tool for selecting you final images and it will remain online for 1 full year following the date of your shoot. I will also be happy to provide you with images you can share on your social media sites.
Retouching and Printing
Once you have chosen the images you'd like to work with you can contact me to place the order for retouching and printing. For quality control purposes I prefer to have my retouching handled by an outside source. I do not release high resolution images to my clients unless you elect to purchase a full session buyout for an additional $150. Should you choose this option, you are free to take your photos to a lab of your choice.
I really like for everyone to bring at least 5 to 10 different options for clothing. For headshots, you really need to just concentrate on tops (unless you would like 3/4 shots as well) The best advise I can give you is you have to love what you're wearing and you must be comfortable. If you don't feel comfortable in what your wearing it will reflect in your images.
Bring a wide variety of colors, and don't be seasonal. Bring t-shirts, tank tops, sweaters and even light jackets. Textures and layers are great just stay away from crazy patterns.
If you don't bring it with you we can't shoot it! And it's preferred all of your items be pressed and ready to go when you arrive.
Cost and Scheduling
Complete Headshot Session
My digital headshot session is $450 plus tax. There is a $100 deposit required to book as session, this is non-refundable and goes to the $450 total. The session will last up to 2 hours once you are in front of the camera, although I don't put a stopwatch on the session. Together we will work to get you your perfect images.
This is something you must take advantage of because you will never pay a high price for headshots again and many returning clients take advantage of this. If you choose to work with me again your session will only cost you $125 (that's $270 off). And this applies to anyone that has shot with me in the past.
It is a 1 hour session and can be used to update any photos you feel are in need.
Kids 16 and under can get a 1 hour session for $225.
A $100 deposit is required to book a complete session, $225 for a kids session and $100 for a returning client session. These are do after you have booked and session and have a date scheduled in the calendar. However if it is not received one week after booking you session will be canceled.
I accept cash, check and all major credit cards. The remaining balance plus tax is due on the day of your session.
