PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT PACKAGE
WHY A PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT?
You want the audition.
You want the interview.
You want to impress potential clients.
Your headshot must be riveting.
It must demonstrate your commitment to quality.
It must display confidence & professionalism.
It must demonstrate that you are a pleasure to work with.
It must stop the viewer in their tracks.
It must motivate action.
For an actor, your headshot(s) must also demonstrate the range of roles that you are ideal for, making it easy for the casting director to slot you in their upcoming production.
We will experiment to find your most powerful poses, varying the lighting and looking at images on the computer as we shoot.
When we find a promising pose/light combination, we will spark just the right natural expressions, displaying both confidence and approachability -- and capture those moments in camera.
We experiment with alternative attire and (for women) modest additions to makeup.
Contact me for our initial consultation, where where we will discuss your goals and preparations for the shoot. You may email in advance some existing photographs for this discussion. Then we will schedule the studio shoot and I will email you my preparation guide (what to wear, etc.).
Our one-hour studio session provides time for us to explore alternative lighting, poses and expressions. There is time to try different clothing, if desired. Indoor backgrounds are gray, white or black.
We review the raw unedited photographs together on computer as we shoot. We complete preliminary ranking and selections by the end of the shoot. Best shots will be delivered in low resolution "proof" form, unedited, in an online album for further deliberation if desired.
Light editing of your chosen photograph(s) in the post-process will ensure that your headshot will look very natural, very flattering, and yet very much YOU.
It's a pleasant process!
"I was dreading this but it was actually fun!" is a typical comment. That is no accident -- it's how we elicit the best expressions from you, and there's no reason to NOT make it fun!
$295 for up to 60 minutes in studio, a mix of photography and reviewing images.
This package includes one edited digital color headshot. Additional images are an extra fee, whether edited or not.
Add-ons are described below, but this package might be all that you need.
Additional edited digital color photographs: $45 each or 3 for $100.
Black & white conversions of color edited shots: $25 each or 3 for $60. A B&W conversion requires manual fine tuning, including adjusting color channels, to really pop.
Access to 10 "raw" unedited images: $150, delivered to your professional portrait / headshot editor, or one of several that I can recommend. "Raw" images must be edited prior to use.
MAKEUP & HAIR
Fee does not include makeup or hair styling.
I have well-vetted makeup/hair artists who spend an hour on your makeup along with a hair-touchup, and remain during the shoot for further touchup.
Alternatively, I will be happy to coordinate with your own makeup & hair artist prior to the shoot.
Extend photography session: $90 per half hour.
Outdoor or off-site sessions may be arranged for an additional fee. This can allow for beautifully blurred urban backgrounds, for example.
Outdoor venues need to be carefully arranged due to local laws regarding placement of light stands and tripods on public grounds.
Booking fee: $100 within 24 hours of scheduling your photo shoot, credited towards your total payment, refundable up to 7 days prior to the shoot. After that, it can be held as a credit and applied to a future shoot, provided that 48 hours advance notice of cancellation is provided.
Final payment: due at the time of the shoot.
Payment methods: Credit and debit cards accepted by Square, such as Visa, MC, Amex, or Discover. Also accept Paypal or cash. Venmo is not accepted. Amount paid may not exceed the balance due.
25% off session fee for full time students
25% off session fee for clients returning within 24 months
