HOW LONG IS A HEADSHOT SESSION?
Most headshot sessions take about 1-hour in the studio unless they’re acting headshots which last 2-hours due to different setups. It is advised that you arrive 10-minutes before for your headshot session, so as not to delay the process or booking schedule.
WHAT DO YOU
MEAN BY “LOOKS”?
Looks are wardrobe and styling changes. Headshot sessions include 3 looks, with additional looks billed at $100/ea. You are encouraged to bring a variety of clothes and accessories, whereby a brief wardrobe consultation will be provided before your session.
WHERE WILL THE SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
All headshot sessions are done inside my studio – Studio 311 – located at Queen St East & DVP in the beautiful Riversideneighborhood just minutes from downtown Toronto. The studio is a sunny south-facing loft-style space complete with a make-up / hair station, full workspace, and lounge area that is always fully stocked with refreshments and snacks.
Although the use of my professional make-up artist / hair stylist is highly recommended (especially for women), it is not required. Trusting your appearance to my professional team will provide the best results from your headshot session. My make-up artist / hair stylist stay during the entire photoshoot for touch-ups, small changes, and to make sure your hair stays looking fabulous. Rates for make-up / hair for women is $125 and $85 for Men, per headshot session. Please note the request for make-up / hair for your headshot session when booking.
If you are not planning on booking my professional make-up artist / hair stylist, please arrive camera-ready. Make-up should be fresh and natural looking, with small accenting feature and not heavy. Hair should be how you normally style it, with few strays. You should look like the BEST version of yourself!
IS THE MAKE-UP ARTIST / HAIR STYLIST REQUIRED?
Within 72-hours (3-days) from your photoshoot, you will receive an email with a Contact Sheet PDF and / or a link to a private online gallery of your shoot. From there you will send an email with your choices (file number) on which photos you would like to be retouched – referred to as SELECTS. You will have then have your edited SELECTS within 72-hours in 72dpi (web) and 300dpi (print) ready files.
AFTER MY HEADSHOT SESSION?
I usually book up at least 1-month in advance. Please send an email or fill out a request on the contact page with your contact information, when you are looking to shoot, and the style (corporate / acting). Once a date has been secured, you will receive an email with details on your headshot session including payment info, wardrobe advice, studio address, and other helpful information.
READY TO BOOK? WHAT’S NEXT?
Yes, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm your headshot session booking. After the deposit has been made, I will send you a PDF with further details about your session.
DO YOU REQUIRE
There are various ways to make a deposit / payment, including Credit Cards (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discovery), Electronic Money Transfer (EMT / Interac e-Transfer), and Cash.
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?
Do to the nature of the business, I do my best to be flexible with clients. A minimum of 72-hours notice is required for rescheduling, otherwise a $100 +HST cancellation fee is applied. If no notice is given you’ll have to re-book your photoshoot and pay a second deposit. The non-refundable deposit is kept for no-shows.
