What should I wear?

In general, avoid clothing that is too baggy or has complex patterns, logos, or designs. Simple, attractive, and form-fitting is best. We are looking to "suggest" the roles you plan to go after. 
When you book a session, I prefer to have a clear conversation about your type and the looks we want to go for so we have a more efficient, purposeful session.

Do you use studio or natural lighting?

I shoot both studio and natural lighting. It depends on what light works best for you and what looks we are hoping to achieve. In my amazing mid-town studio I have HUGE windows that let in incredible light. Additionally, I have an array of professional lighting such as strobe, tungsten, and high-powered continuous LEDs.

Do I need retouching?

Digital retouching is an art and I have a professional retouch artist with over 15 years of experience that I can recommend. Standard retouching is available for $35 per image. Of course, not ALL of your pictures need retouching, just the one(s) you plan on using to promote yourself. Retouching is a must if you are planning to print your headshots.

What constitutes a look?

A "look" is a character or essence you're trying to convey through a change of clothes and/or style. A working actor needs to show DIVERSITY on their website and acting profiles. A good rule of thumb is to have 1) neutral look that captures "you" plus 2-3) more specific character looks that are more "suggestive" rather than over-the-top representations of what your type is. Looks typically involve a change of wardrobe and/or hair (taking off or putting on a coat or glasses is NOT considered a change).

What is the "online gallery"?

After your shoot, your images will uploaded to Reproductions. They will prepare an online proof sheet (gallery) of your headshots with a unique link that you can share with others. There is no additional cost for this service when you book a shoot with me, otherwise it's $27.50. You are also able to order prints and/or retouching services through them. If you'd like for the retouching to be completed in-house at my studio with my retouch artist, the turnaround is 48 hours and rates are listed above. For an additional $50, I will review your entire session and provide you with my top choices.

The prices listed above are for actors and performing artists only. For corporate and commercial quotes please inquire.
