Want to know the process of how an actual headshot session works? Have you never had headshots taken before? If not, don't worry. I've got you covered.
The session starts as soon as you arrive. What you'll do is once you arrive to the studio, you'll give me a call and I'll come down to the lobby to greet you. I'll ask you a few questions before anything starts to get an idea of what characters you are going for. Whether you're an actor, an author, you need corporate or executive headshots, it doesn't matter as long as I know, because it will help determine how I shoot.
Once we figure out exactly what you are going for, based on the session you have signed up for, we will go outdoors or into the studio and begin setting up. If you opted for a makeup artist, that is when we will do your makeup and determine what clothing you should wear to help compliment your characters.
After all of that is done, we'll head outside or into the studio for your headshot session!
The actual shoot is nothing to worry about. I will guide you through everything and remember: most of the other actors who get headshots have also never had them taken before, so any questions you ask have already likely been asked in the past.
We will shoot for an hour or two and get all the looks you need. Typically you shouldn't need more than three hours to get a great set of headshots. We'll make sure to cover all of your bases and I'll direct you into more flattering poses, beig sure you get what you want.
As soon as the session is over, you'll get all your headshots burned onto a CD to take with you. You can use them or choose ones to be touched up with photoshop I your chosen session includes it.
And guess what? You're finished! You've done your first headshot session!
