In general, avoid clothing that is too baggy or has complex patterns, logos, or designs. Simple, attractive, and something that you would wear to an audition for the types of roles you are looking to play is best. When you book a session, we will further discuss clothing choices.

I shoot both indoors and outdoors. It depends primarily on a) what light works best for you b) what look we are hoping to achieve and c) the weather, of course. 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.

Digital retouching is an art and I use a professional artist with over 15 years of experience. I include retouching for all my sessions. Additional basic retouching is available for $45 per image, however, more extensive digital alterations will require a quote.  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.

A "look" is basically a new "character" that we're going for. It usually involves a change of wardrobe and/or hair (taking off or putting on a coat is NOT considered a change).
