In addition to the base packages listed above, there are a number of options available to customize your session
Studio Session - Prefer a studio look to natural light? With all of the base packages, we will meet in town to shoot and take advantage of the scenic LA streets. But, you may also choose to visit me in-studio for an indoor session - Additional $250
Hair and Makeup - Additional $200/model
Additional Retouching - Each package comes with a set number of final images which include basic retouching (zits, blemishes, lint). If, for example, you decide you want more images from the proof gallery than prescribed, additional retouched images are $25/image
All In High Resolution - While I firmly believe that the objective of any session, especially headshots, is to get THE shot, not just A shot, I also understand that some clients simply want options. Each package comes with a web resolution watermarked proof gallery from which you can download and compare all images from the shoot (following a photographer's edit for quality assurance). But if you'd prefer to have all of those proofs in full resolution, you can add that as well for an additional $350. (Note: Additional retouching rates, if desired, still apply)
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long is a session?
Most sessions last roughly one hour (excluding hair and makeup).
How long will it take for me to get my images?
Your password-protected web gallery will be online within 24 hours. This will include all the images from the shoot - usually in the 50-60 image range - in low resolution watermarked form for you to make your selects.
Once you have made your selections for retouching, those images will be delivered to you within 72 hours via WeTransfer.
Is there a deposit required?
Yes. There is a 50% deposit required to book your session. The balance of payment is due at the beginning of the shoot.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, check, or credit card via Paypal. Cash customers should be sure to bring exact change.
What's your cancellation policy?
Cancellations with a full refund of the deposit are accepted prior to 72 hours before the scheduled shoot time.
Do you offer refunds?
For technical failure only. Photography, like any art, is highly subjective. While I do my best to satisfy every client's needs, it is not practical to offer refunds on purely aesthetic grounds. However, you are more than welcome to review our progress during the shoot, and suggest a new direction.
Does hair and makeup count against my shooting time?
If you decide to add hair and makeup to your package, the first hour of that time does not count against your shooting time. So, for example, if you book a commercial headshot session including hair and makeup for 10am, then sit in hair and makeup until 11am, then your shoot would wrap at noon. Or if your hair and makeup runs over/under, the shoot would still wrap at noon, so by booking hair and makeup you are effectively getting a 2 hour slot as opposed to a one hour slot.
What's the difference between commercial/theatrical headshots and the Icons Package?
Creativity. The commercial/theatrical headshot package is fairly straightforward. An industry standard head and shoulders portrait with eyes towards camera. This shot is designed to give the casting director/hiring manager an instant look at you in all your glory. With the Icons Package, we are building your complete brand. A commercial/theatrical headshot will get you in the door. An iconic portrait will build the brand to help you stay there.
Rates above apply for headshot sessions only.
I am a model looking to build me portfolio. Is this the right package for me?
Those in need of a complete package of promotional images are better served by the Icons Package.
I would like the Icons Package, but also need a commercial headshot, is that possible?
Yes. The Icons Package is completely customizable. So, if you want one of your 25 finals to be a commercial headshot, we can certainly do that.
