Give Me A Buzz!
Where the magic happens…
Where will my headshot session be?
I work in my studio with studio flashes, but we may venture outside depending on weather and what is working with you.
What should I do to prepare for my headshot session?
Gurn in the mirror, ask your friends what your best side is, whatever you need to do. Importantly though, think about what your product is: YOU. What jobs are you going for and how do you want to be seen by potential employers. Knowing this will help you put together an effective package to promote yourself.
What should I bring?
Bring a couple of options of top. Don’t worry about bottoms, we won’t see them; its a headshot! Avoid things like bright colours, thin pin stripes, loud patterns or large text, these things draw the eye away from you. Girls, bring along some make up for touch up, you can use my bathroom to “refresh.” Boys, if you want a “with beard/without beard” set of shots, bring a razor.
How do I pick my images?
On the day, you will get the chance to go through and cull any images that are flat out no’s. This will also give us a chance to see if we’re capturing what you want. Then I will send you a PDF with all your remaining images on it to choose from. That way you can go through them without me looking over your shoulder! You can also show them to anyone you trust to get an opinion.
What do I get at the end of my shoot?
At the end of the session, I will email you a PDF sheet of your top frames, the pictures will be high enough resolution for you to zoom in on each one.
When you have decided which you like the best, send me their file names and I will edit and send them to you in high resolution – for print, and low resolution – for web use.
For actors, if you want an 8×10 version, as is an old industry standard, let me know and I can do that too.
How can I pay?
I accept cash obviously, but if you don’t deal in the old ways then I can send you an invoice with my bank details for direct deposit, or you can pay the easy way; with credit or debit card! I only ask that payment is cleared before the final images are sent through.
