WHICH PACKAGE SHOULD I CHOOSE??

Headshot Package A
This package is most appropriate for the acting professional who:
- needs a full set of new shots
- is confident and comfortable in front of the camera
- who knows what looks they need without a consultation.

Headshot Package B
Package B is recommended for either the acting professional who:
- needs 6 or more looks
or who:
- needs more time and guidance regarding looks
- needs more time to become comfortable in front of the camera

In the half hour consultation, we can further discuss looks, location, questions and concerns. The extra shoot time and gallery images allow the opportunity to shake out the jitters and get everything we need.

Internet Profile Package
This package is specifically for online dating, professional networks and anywhere else you may need a great online presence. We call it the “virtual handshake.”

This package is also helpful to acting professionals who need a quick one or two look session to supplement the shots they already have. HI-RES, print ready shots from this session are available for an additional $50.

Please note, there is no selection process available with this package. Final images will be selected by your photographer.

FAQs

What constitutes a “look”?
I like to think of “looks” as roles or types. A look should show the casting director an aspect of your acting range. A “look” is not just a change of wardrobe, it's a concept. You decide what looks you want to capture, bring wardrobe to support your ideas, and I'll do the rest! For some examples of strong looks check out my blog entry on effective headshots:
HEADSHOT SUCCESS: 7 NATIONAL SPOTS IN 1 YEAR.

Where do we shoot?
I specialize in natural light photography. What does this mean? It means we use the world as our backdrop! I like to use urban street settings, cafes, cool colorful doors, etc. I discover something new everywhere I go! It keeps things fun and playful and gives us lots to talk about.

If the world is our backdrop, where do I change?
This is a great question! Since we're primarily focusing on your face, what you're wearing from the waist down doesn't matter as much. I recommend wearing layers that are easy to peel on an off and a good undershirt. We will be on the street. If necessary we can certainly duck into a coffee shop for a quick change but make sure to plan well and keep it simple!

Hair and Make-up
I believe strongly that the make-up in your headshots should be as close as possible to what you'll look like when you walk into an audition. There's nothing casting directors dislike more than when you look nothing like your headshot!! Keep it light and clean. If the thought of doing your own make-up on the day of the shoot stresses you out too terribly, ask for our recommended make-up artist, we'd be happy to refer you. I recommend either doing your hair yourself or if you don't want to hassle with it, go to your regular stylist who knows you and your hair well. There should be no guess work involved. Do NOT get your hair done in a brand new way or in a way you can't replicate yourself on audition day. You want to look like the best version of yourself!

Why don't you release unedited images?
It's my philosophy that editing is a big part of the process. To me, it's not finished if it's not developed. If one of your looks is villainous, I will likely bring out cooler tones and perhaps play up the shadows, however, if another look you're going for is friendly and sweet, I might develop the image with warmer tones, brighten it and make it pop! It's helpful, in the selection process, to see what the images look like finished.

Hardcopy CD vs Instant Download
Though we still offer hardcopy CDs of your session (for and additional price), hardcopies are a thing of the past. No longer do you have to wait for snail mail to receive your images, now you can instantly download your selected images directly to your desktop. No muss, no fuss. It's easier for you and for us. :)

How do I get the most out of my session?
Though we offer unlimited looks, there is only so much time allotted for your session depending on what package you've selected. Here are some tips to make sure you get the most out of the time for which you've paid. Help me help you...

A) Make sure you're clear on what looks you'd like to capture. For more on this, check out the blog :).

B) Make sure you've thought about what order you'd like your looks to go in. This way you can plan what clothes to arrive in, and what will be the easiest way to change.

C) Arrive ready to shoot. What does that mean? Show up in one of the outfits in which you'd like to shoot. You're clothes will look best if they're clean and ironed (unless one of your looks is specifically disheveled in which case bring on the wrinkles!!!).

D) Keep your wardrobe changes simple. Ie. instead of changing you're entire outfit, consider starting in a tank top for a sporty look, then throwing a jacket over it and adding small earrings for a corporate look. Unless we're shooting your whole body, we don't need to worry about what's on your legs or feet. I'm happy to do a few full length shots but remember this is a headshot session not a modeling zed card. There is a difference (Please inquire if you're looking to do a zed card).

E) Bring powder. I recommend a white translucent powder. (unless you've paid for make-up, in which case, I'll have that covered).

F) Bring a friend. It's certainly not required but it's wonderful to have a friend not only for moral support but to hold stuff and look out for wispy hairs :). I'll do my very best to notice everything but it sure helps to have an extra set of eyes.

G) Have fun!!! It's very important to me that you enjoy yourself as much as possible. I like to think of headshots as an opportunity to play! Once you've done the prep work, you can stop working and let it all go. We play dress-up, play characters, and play in the street! Isn't that why we all got into this crazy business?? I'll get the most out of you if you show up ready to have fun. Let your anxiety go and I'll take care of everything else.
