I shoot outdoors. Natural light makes for the best headshots. Plus, being outside is fun and freeing! I don’t like being in a stuffy studio and I do not expect you to either. I am playful, silly, and down to earth. A headshot session should be fun! I encourage people I am working with to stay loose and just have a good time. Of course if it is freezing outside- We will be indoors. But STILL using natural light!
Before the Shoot:
Headshots should represent you (on your best day), so get a lot of rest and stay hydrated at least a week prior to your shoot.
What to expect:
We will pop in my car and drive to some fabulous places that I like to shoot. I will photograph you in an area as long as it is working and then we will move on. We will not remain in the same place, because I love variety! And admit it, so do you. Feel free to bring a friend- Whatever makes you most comfortable and feel most like YOU.
What to wear:
Solid colors photograph best. Avoid logos, stripes, and designs. Simple is usually better- we want clients/agents to look at YOU and not what you are wearing. Wear something that makes you feel comfortable, fits well, and matches your personality. Ask your agent. They can tell you what look to aim for. Or consider your type and bring options to compliment what you will be hired for. That doesn’t mean that you should wear a costume. Please don’t show up in firemen’s gear or a nurse outfit…..
Bring a variety of styles and colors. The more you have- the better. We will not use everything, not even close. But it is ALWAYS better to have more choices. Don’t worry about your shoes or even your lower half. We won’t be shooting much below the waist unless you specifically need full body shots.
If you wear glasses-bring them. If they are non-reflective- AWESOME!
Some people choose to hire hair and make up for the day of their shoot. It is totally up to you. You should look like yourself in your photos. You should do your hair and make up the way you usually do your hair and make-up when going to an audition. Bring your make up along, just in case. Also bring lip gloss or chapstick! (You too boys!)
NOTE: Do NOT get your hair cut the day before a shoot!! Unexpected things could happen. DO bring hairspray to the shoot. Wind also happens.
After the shoot:
You will receive your full disc of images in 7-10 business days to show all of your family and friends how good looking and castable you are. If you need advice on where to get reproductions of your headshots, I can give you recommendations.
You will LOVE your photos.
If you do NOT love them, we will reshoot.
