Frequently Asked Questions
How should I prepare?
Think about what you want your headshots to say about you, and what kind of parts you want to be called in for. Think about your last headshots: what worked and what didn't? Ask your friends and your representation what they'd like to see. The night before our shoot, moisturize, stay away from drinking, and get plenty of sleep.
What should I wear?
Bring plenty of options! I recommend at least 6, and then we'll narrow it down together. Matching your shirts to your eye color is always a smart bet, as is staying away from loud or busy patterns. For men, layering is the name of the game. But above all, the most important thing is to choose clothes that feel like you. Makeup-wise, bring what you have even if you're using a makeup artist.
Where will my shoot take place?
I shoot in Atwater Village, Los Angeles.
Should I hire a makeup artist?
Short answer: if it's within your budget, yes. We can all use a little extra help in the hair and makeup department, and the makeup artists that I work with all know how I work, and how to match my aesthetic. They'll also stay with you throughout the shoot, giving you touch-ups and acting as my second set of eyes. I have several very skilled makeup artists available for our session. I don't generally use make-up artists for men, but it is always an option if it'll make you comfortable.
How many shots will I get to choose from?
You'll receive approximately 100-150 shots from which to select the images for me to retouch.
How quickly will I get my shots?
You will receive a link to all of your shots within 72 hours. Your next step is to choose which shot(s) you want me to retouch. I'll then email you your retouched photo(s) within another 72 hours, after which you can contact Reproductions, or any other preferred printing company.
