A headshot is one of the most important tools and investments of your career.  You can be the greatest actor on earth but if your headshot doesn’t present you well, no one will be interested in finding out about your skills and talent.  Professional headshots matter!

ACTORS HEADSHOT PACKAGES

INDIVIDUAL SESSION – $395.00 (12 & Under – $325.00)
This is typically everyone’s favorite package.  This session includes:

  • Time and talent of photographer.
  • Up to three wardrobe changes or three different looks.
  • Variety of backgrounds and locations (as weather allows:).
  • Online picture gallery (password protected) of your images.  Approximately 150 images.
  • One retouched image is included in the sitting price.  Additional retouched images are $25.00 each.
  • All the high resolution images from the shoot shared through Dropbox.

SHARING A SESSION – $295.00 each
This package is perfect for people who need maybe not only a discount in price but also want the fun of shooting with someone else.  I spend equal amounts of time with each of you, just going back and forth.  When one of you is changing, I’m photographing the other one, etc.  If you are nervous in front of the camera and you need a friend (who happens to also be an actor) to come with you, take advantage of this package.  You’ll have a great time, your friend will be happy, and you’ll both get amazing headshots.

GROUPS – $225.00 each
This package is designed for groups.   If you are really a student, yahoo, if not, but can get a group of actors together, then that’s okay too.  You need at least three people scheduled back to back.  These sessions are shorter and we use every minute.   Come prepared and come on time.  These sessions include 30 minutes of my time, 2 different looks, the online gallery, etc.

MAKEUP & HAIR

WOMEN– $150.00
I highly recommend a makeup artist for women.  Bottom line? It will make a huge difference in your pictures. My makeup artists are proven and outstanding – I swear by them and so do all my clients. They are experts with natural light makeup and hair, stay through the shoot to do touch-ups, make small changes, and guarantee you always looking your best throughout the entire shoot. Please see FAQ’s for answer on your specific makeup questions.

PAYMENT
Payment is due the day of the shoot.  Payment options include cash, personal checks, cashier’s checks and money orders, Paypal, Visa and  MasterCard.

First and foremost,  bring a wide variety of clothes so we can pick and choose!  Some basic guidelines are: stick with solids, different textures are wonderful, dark colors often work the best.  That said, sometimes bright colors and neutrals (white and cream tones) can look amazing.  Bring a variety of necklines.  Look for colors that bring out the color of your eyes.  Ask yourself, what colors look best on me?  If you don’t know, ask a friend, if they don’t know, just bring a bunch of different colors and we’ll figure it out.

Layering can be wonderful and can add some contrast.  For men, a blazer and a collar shirt, or a t-shirt and a light jacket.  Thermals, crew necks and v-necks are also good.  Most of the time turtlenecks don’t work – though there’s is an exception to every rule.

If you are working with an agent or a manager, be sure to discuss what specific looks they are going for before our session.  This is important.

Women, please bring a wide variety of bras and in different colors. Typically, don’t worry about shoes.  If your shoes help to make the outfit/look you want to work, wear them.  Often a pair of high heels will make a woman hold her body different.  If it helps, bring it.

Bottom line, I want you to look like you.  I don’t want you to be a generic copy of anyone else.  And, during the session if the outfits don’t work or you feel limited or not like you, then we can discuss other options.

Bring a pair of shoes you can walk in too.  If the weather is nice, we will head outside for part of the shoot.

GROOMING
Be sure to get a haircut or your hair colored so you look fresh and sharp.  Don’t waste your time coming in when you have bad roots (unless that’s the look you are going for!)    Eyebrows should be well groomed.  Men have the option to shave during the shoot, so if you are doing that, please bring your own towel, shaving gear, etc.  Come with your face well moisturized. – men and women!  If you are having your makeup done (I highly recommend this for women) then arrive with no makeup on.   Your hair should be clean and dry (see more information about makeup/hair in that section).

Women, please bring your own mascara.

Finally, and importantly, arrive well rested.  Your job is to bring energy to the shoot. I’ll take care of the rest.

Though not mandatory, retouching is recommended to provide you with the absolute best results possible.

I do offer in house retouching at $25.00 an image.   Headshot retouching includes the removing of stray hairs, blemishes, dark circles, cleaning up the overall skin, etc.

Reproductions also offers retouching.  Please contact them for their rates.

Approximately five working days after your shoot you will receive an email from Reproductions  – they will be hosting your online images.   Once you receive your link from Reproductions, you will be able to create a favorites folder, see your photos in color and black and white and email them to friends and agents.

If you are looking to get your headshots mass reproduced, (25 or more of the same 8 x 10) Reproductions is a terrific option.  Reproductions is known for its quality printing services but also excellent customer service and ease of ordering.  The link they send you with your online photos explains how to order an 8 x 10.

Reproductions Price List

If you don’t want to get your pictures mass reproduced, but are looking for a few quality prints locally, then I would suggest Panda Photo Lab & Moon Photo.  This is a more expensive way to go, so it’s not recommended for getting your pictures mass reproduced.
