About the session

Clothing

Shooting a range of looks in this way will allow you to have multiple shots available for different marketing purposes

I don’t put a strict limit on the number of shots I take per look, and generally shoot each look until I feel we’ve got it covered. I like to shoot my headshots in a horizontal format but if you feel you need vertical shots or 3/4 shots during your session just let me know and I'd be happy to frame the images accordingly.

Bring several tops to choose from. Bring extra if you are not sure, and I can help you select ones that will work. I suggest things that make you feel great but stay away from very ornate or busy patterns.

Make-Up and Hair

I ask that everyone come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself. I want your hair in your pictures to be as close as possible to the way you look on a good hair day.

Women:

Please come with the make up that you are wearing in your business life. You will always have the chance to put a little more make up on during the session if you feel it is too little. In headshots there is just a plain background and your face and it can look overdone very quickly.

Men:

I usually don't recommend makeup on men. Also, for the guys who grow decent scruff or feel you might want some shots with some facial hair, you can come in with a some growth and we'll shoot until we feel we've gotten it covered and then you can shave, so bring your razor, etc.

The Headshot Session

It is very important that you feel comfortable during the session. Music can help relax you. Feel free to bring your own CD's.

We edit as we go

Part of my process is to edit the session with you as we go. You and I will inspect each shot one by one to determine its potential use or not. When we are done I’ve usually shot anywhere between 100 and 200 shots during my full session and you'll end up with somewhere between 50-75 final shots that you have approved as potential candidates to use. By shooting and editing in this manner we can adjust the focus of the shots during the session to account for anything that you feel we may have missed

Payment

I kindly request you to pay cash before the shooting starts.

Retouching

Your headshots will be retouched by my retoucher in UK and to make sure you have the most professional quality your are not allowed to edit the headshots.

Delivery

You'll get the final product digitally within 10 days beginning from the date of your selection. You will get high resolution files but I never release the original RAW files.
