Description of headshots session approch and helpful info.
Approach: I do not always shoot one specific way. Looks, backgrounds, lighting, style, agent/manager request and wardrobe selection are figured out before the shoot and I stay open to spontaneous possibilities during the shoot. Images are reviewed during the shoot to check the progress. I shoot headshots in studio with mainly strobe and sometimes natural light.
Prep: Wardrobe options are very important, avoid wrinkles and please bring on hangers. I have a steamer. Consult with reps on specific looks bring several options for each and bring items that you like for yourself. Know what you are selling be specific including hair changes. If in doubt or undecided bring extra changes and we can figure it out before the shoot. Bring specific as well as simple items like t-shirts, camisoles, sweaters and layers, don't forget that jacket...
Consultation: By phone after 6pm, email for phone contact.

How long to get pics: usually 4 business days from Reproductions. How long is shoot: typically 3 hours men, 4 hours women for 3-4 looks. Do you need "RAW" files: No, a raw file is unreadable without a raw editor its an unfinished, unedited data file that needs to be processed to jpg. Do you offer any retouching: All headshots are post processed from raw to jpg, color corrected, adjusted exposure and contrast, some processing is done on each look while shooting so you can see the end result. I dont do any retouching as in remove acne, fly away hairs or wrinkles in clothes. Need for any retouching is minimal with the various lighting options and attention to detail. If you have acne and need retouching its offered through Reproductions or you can use anyone you like.
