headshot photography session

I rarely meet an actor who says they enjoy getting headshots. Yet when the session is over, I am constantly told how surprisingly easy it was. It is my goal, first and foremost, that you get your best shot - the best you possible. But in doing so, you leave here feeling the session was a collaborative and enjoyable process.

the session
I shoot color digital for headshots but black and white or film is available upon request. With each look, we will download the images onto the computer for you to view and make sure that you love what you see. Please allow 2-3 hours if you are doing your own styling and 3-4 hours if you use a professional stylist.

Knowing your market is key to having a headshot that works for you. If you are unsure of what your market is, I recommend getting input from an agent, manager or acting coach, but I am available to assist as well. Your image depends greatly on a combination of clothing, styling, body language, attitude and expression, and we will work together to most effectively capture that image.

Keep it simple. Stay away from busy patterns and logos. Solid colors and textures work best. The clothing should support the image that you are going for, but should not be the focus of the photo. Wear colors that are flattering to you - complimenting your eyes, skin tones and hair. It is not always necessary to wear bright colors, and in fact subtler colors sometimes work better to bring attention to the eyes. All of that being said, remember that these are simply guidelines. If you have something that you love that strays from the above - bring it. I'm always open to seeing what you bring to the session.

hair and makeup
Hair and Makeup is optional. You may do it yourself, bring someone you know and trust to do it for you, or hire one of my stylists. My stylists do both hair and makeup and stay for the entire session. Average rates are $150.

after the session
You own your photos. A CD with large resolution, printable files is yours to keep, so you do not have to go through me to order prints. I will give you a list of labs that I recommend for printing, retouching and duplicating your photos.
