In addition to the base packages listed above, there are a number of options available to customize your session

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).  From this gallery, you select the three images you would like to use and they are retouched and delivery to you quickly via the web.  But if you'd prefer to have all of those proofs in high resolution, you can add that as well for an additional fee.  Studio Session All In = $1799.  Natural Light All In = $1049.  (Note: Additional retouching rates, if desired, would apply)

Additional Retouching - Each package comes with a set number of final images which include  one round ofbasic retouching (zits, blemishes, lint).  If, for example, you decide you want more images from the proof gallery than prescribed, or you wish to return for additional retouching on your selects at a later date, additional retouched images are $50/image.

Hair and Makeup - Additional $200/model

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.

Do I own the copyright to my final images?

No.  While purchasing a session does allow you to market yourself, they may not be used to market a brand or for publication.  To use the images for commercial or editorial purposes, you will need to license the picture from the photographer who is the legal owner of the copyright.  So, for example, printing up headshots for casting directors or posting to your personal website/social media is all good.  Reselling the image to Coca-Cola for use in their add or sending to Vanity Fair to feature in an article?  Still possible, but written consent and agreement on licensing fee would be required beforehand.  This is the legal standard regardless of which photographer you choose.

I'd like to rent out a location and do something really creative?  Is that included in the package?

Rates above apply for headshot sessions only. 

We can, however, absolutely do something elaborate and creative.  Let me know what you have in mind and I will provide you with a quote.

I am a model looking to build me portfolio.  Is this the right package for me?

See previous answer.  Model portfolio packages starting at $1299.  Send me an email to get a full quote.
