HEADSHOTS: A QUICK INTRODUCTION

Here are a few headshots tips to answer any questions that you may have. Although these headshot tips may be helpful, if you don’t see the answer to your question please call me and I’ll be happy to help. If you need headshots for all the people in your organization please call me since there is a substantial discount for volume headshots. Having employees that are out on travel, or work remotely can create scheduling issues, so we have created  a number of ways to customize our services to ensure that all your employees can be scheduled.

DO YOU RETOUCH?2020-06-15T18:38:06-04:00
YOU BET YOUR SWEET LIFE WE DO!

Standard retouching on headshots includes improving skin texture, removing blemishes, under-eye darkness and fine wrinkles and lines. We tone down any excessive redness in skin tones, brighten your smile and your eyes …… and you’ll love the way you look!

HOW LONG WILL MY PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT SESSION TAKE?2020-06-15T18:34:44-04:00

It depends on which type of headshot package you choose. Please see our pricing options for more information. Please allow some time for an initial consultation before we start so that we can discuss your needs, wardrobe, etc. During the headshot shoot, we will review the headshots with you. We assist you in picking the best headshots. You leave happy and tell all your friends, family, and coworkers about how great we are.

CAN I GET MY HEADSHOTS THE SAME DAY?2020-06-15T18:39:29-04:00

YES.  (we don’t like homework). Your retouched headshots are delivered electronically via WeTransfer or other electronic delivery systems. We understand deadlines.

HOW CAN I GET THE BEST HEADSHOTS?2020-06-15T18:35:57-04:00

Please arrive at the studio camera-ready. For men, shaven (as appropriate). For women, with hair/makeup already done. During the headshot session, we will periodically review images with you in case we need to adjust posing, lighting or so we can identify what is or is not working. We can take as many breaks as we need to make sure you are comfortable, relaxed, and have your appearance exactly the way you want it. Our goal is that your new headshots will be exactly what you want. THINNER, YOUNGER, MORE ATTRACTIVE

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS2020-06-19T11:48:51-04:00

I’m a believer in keeping things simple and being authentic. so wear clothes that are in keeping with your own sense of taste and style. Please think about how these images will be used when you are choosing your wardrobe.
Men: Solid jackets, colorful ties (not the Christmas tie Grateful Dead tie or your favorite tie from 1985 – even if your mother did give it to you)  ’No tie’ can also be a great look with a sports jacket. Women: Black / dark colors are slimming, but bright colors also add a LOT of pop. If you are unsure, please bring some alternate choices and we can see what works the best for you.

WHAT NOT TO WEAR FOR MY HEADSHOT?2020-06-15T18:24:52-04:00

Avoid busy patterns, logos, plunging necklines and pastel colors (they often wash out skin tones)

SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING ELSE TO MY HEADSHOT SESSION?2020-06-15T18:32:31-04:00

Bring anything that helps us help you.  Do you need to? No – not necessary at all.

Although we ask that you arrive ready for your headshot session, please feel free to bring a couple of clothing options if you’re unsure. If you’ve seen a style you like, let’s look at it. If we need to match your company website, no problem – just give us the specs.
