PORTRAITURE AND HEADSHOT FAQ
WHERE DO WE SHOOT?
We will shoot at my photo studio in Brooklyn. If you want to book another location for our shoot, there will be an additional fee.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY SHOOT?
Solid Colors: Simple solid t-shirts, shirts, dresses and tops work best. Bring clothing that fit you well and make you feel great wearing them. No logos, with the exception of tiny logos that can easily be photoshopped out and avoid heavy patterns that could be distracting
Layers: Bringing blazers, cardigans, vests and other layering items of clothing is a great way to get multiple looks in a short amount of time by taking on and off or swapping different pieces.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
If you’re doing your own make-up please keep it minimal, natural, even and neutral to start with. Bring mascara, eyeliner and a few tones of lipstick to play with if this is in keeping with how you would present yourself at a casting. A hair and makeup artist is available for $75/hour.
Get enough sleep, hydrate and don’t go out partying for a couple nights before the shoot. You’ll thanks me later.
WHERE CAN I SEE MY IMAGES
All proofs will be available online within 24-72 hours from our shoot day. Retouched images will be available online within one week although rush orders are possible for an extra fee.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO I GET?
For a standard session you will get 3 high resolution images from the shoot. One of the three images will be retouched. You will also get three color grading variations of the final retouched photo: standard look, black & white and a warmer look.
LIGHTING AND BACKDROP
The lighting, backdrops and overall photographic style will be custom tailored for you and your brand and we can discuss before the shoot in a consultation.
CAN I SEND EXAMPLES/MOOD BOARDS BEFORE THE SHOOT?
Absolutely, having an idea or direction you would like to go in beforehand can be very helpful. Please send samples to me in an email or Pinterest board.
HOW MANY LOOKS CAN WE DO PER SESSION?
As many as we can, but remember that changing clothing or hair takes time away from shooting. Dressing in layers that can transition quickly and easily is smart way to get multiple looks during a 30 minute session.
DO YOU DO OTHER PHOTOGRAPHY?
Yes! I’m a passionate street and documentary photographer as well as a cinematographer and director for film and video. I love looking at the world through the lens, connecting with people and storytelling.
I accept cash, credit card, Venmo and Paypal.
CANCELLATION / RESCHEDULING POLICY
Due to the complexity of scheduling multiple shoots and the time preparing and setting up for a shoot I have a strict cancelation/rescheduling policy. For studio shoots, Deposits and Payments are non-refundable. Shoots can be rescheduled, but if you reschedule with less than 7 business day notice there will be a $75 rescheduling fee. If you want to reschedule with less than 48 hour notice The fee is $175. Thank you for your understanding.
