How far in advance do I need to book my session?
About 2 weeks…...but you should always check to see if I might have an opening earlier.
Where do you shoot?
I am an all natural light photographer so I either shoot outdoors(weather permitting) in the Tribeca area. Or at my all natural light studio in Chelsea.
How much is the session rate and what does it include?
The session rate is $550. It includes:
• Your headshot session either outdoors or at the studio(depending on the time of year)
• All of your high res images in a password protected on line gallery. (all images are yours to keep and can be easily downloaded directly to your computer)
• My help in selecting your final images.
• 2 touched up digital images of your choice
What is included in “touch ups?”
I do light touch ups….remove blemishes, color corrections, teeth whitening, eye brightening, smoothing out skin texture.
What about hair/makeup?
The hair/makeup fee is an additional $150. I highly recommend this service for women because it makes a huge difference in the photos. Everyday makeup and makeup for the camera are completely different. Once you confirm your appointment I will book the makeup artist.
Will I receive a CD?
Because the images can be downloaded directly to your hard drive there is no need for a CD. But if you like I can provide one.
How do I book an appointment?
Once we have chatted over email or by phone and chosen a date it is $100 deposit to confirm the appointment. The deposit will be deducted from your balance which is due on the shoot date. Cash, Check or paypal are all acceptable forms of payment. But the makeup artist needs to be paid in cash on the day of the shoot.
Is my deposit refundable if I need to reschedule?
As long as you cancel your appointment 48 hours before the scheduled date I can apply your deposit to the next shoot date. If it is a last minute cancellation then you will forfeit your deposit.
How long is the session?
• Women: Allow about 3 hours(with hair and makeup)
• Men: Allow 1.5 hours
When will I receive my digital images?
5 business days
How do I download my images?
Scroll your cursor over the right side of the photo Choose size (I recommend medium for all digital purposes. And “O” for any printing purposes) Hit “save photo”
Will I always have access to my photos?
What about wardrobe?
For headshots I like to keep the wardrobe simple. It’s best for the focus to be on YOU and not what you are wearing. Which means….no patterns or logos….no accessories. Stick to bold solid colors and simple necklines. I prefer if you bring a bunch of shirt options and I will help you choose. No need to worry about pants because they will be tight shots. However...you should be wearing pants ;)
