Make-up & Hair Stylist (optional): Contact for details.
You're absolutely welcome to do your own make-up & hair. If you opt to do it yourself, we'll have a quick chat, and I'll bring one trusty GO-TO product and a clean brush that keep the glow off your upper lip & the sparkle in your eyes.
While professional make-up and hair is optional, I will say that the stylists who work with me are phenomenal - and especially helpful if you feel the quick, detailed styling between looks will benefit you. One's a 20+ year veteran with high fashion, editorial & on-camera experience & highly skilled across of variety of applications and incredible for natural light. The other, a highly-trained makeup professional with a heck of a following. They're present for the duration of your shoot, and kind & gracious to boot -- a heck of an attribute toward making an important shoot comfortable & fun. Please contact me for her rate. *Additional makeup/styling charges apply for the 6-look package.
I specialize in natural-looking retouches and have provided top-quality headshots & editorial edits to both entertainment professionals and many of LA's top headshot photographers. Whether it's my own photography or someone else's work, my goal's always been to maintain the integrity of the original photograph while subduingdistractions so the focus is on YOU. Turnaround of retouches average 1-4 days.
Payment & Reschedule Policies
A $75 deposit is required to book your headshot session. If your shoot date's just around the corner from your booking date, don't worry - we'll work something out that makes sense. My preferred method of deposit payment is via PayPal - you can then use your credit card or bank account. The balance is due on the date of your shoot. I'll accept cash (yep - you'll have a receipt), and checks with ID for the balance due. If you opt for the make-up & hair stylist's service, payment must be made directly to her at the time of service.
It's a good idea for you to book out from 1st auditions on the day of your shoot. In this business, things pop up. The goal's to book great jobs, after all.
If you'd give me 24 hours heads-up you need to postpone or cancel (if you have opted for professional makeup and hair, 48 hours notice is requested), we'll be in good shape & I can reschedule your shoot. If I've got less than a full day's notice, your deposit's non-refundable. If you postpone your shoot date more than once and then do not reschedule at that time, your deposit is non-refundable. Please note that these guidelines are in place because of the value of our mutual commitment to your shoot. Postponement or cancellations should be made by PHONE: 323.609.3468.
Also, I shoot using natural light, so if rain's expected, I'll check in on the morning of your shoot to give us a window of time (usually an hour or so past our original start time) to see if heavy overcast has cleared and we can proceed. Otherwise, we will postpone to our next available date. This seldom happens, but is important to note. Sun's key to illuminating your eyes and authenticating your skin tone.
Delivery of Images
You'll receive your high resolution images within a week of your shoot date. You can bring your own flash drive with at least 8GB of free space on it for me to return to you by pick-up or first class mail (for priority mail, your charge will be $6.95). Please do not bring me an SD card or an external drive — I do not want to be responsible for any irreplaceable content on either. If you don't have a flash drive, I can supply you with a 16GB drive for $20. You will also have the additional option to have your session uploaded online for $11 per 300 images (payable directly to the lab), which has a link you can forward to your agents and managers for their selection of favorites. Both Pixels Imaging and Argentum Photo Lab provide high quality prints and fast turnaround at a competitive price, and a discount on their services to my clients. You'll receive 20% off your order at Argentum, and 10% off at Pixels.
You'll have the option to shoot all looks inside the studio, or divide the session up between in-studio and outside for a more cinematic effect. You can click on ANY of the headshots featured on my site's home-page & scroll down to see a variety of each person's "looks," many of which demonstrate in-and-out coverage.
