Actor's Headshot Photography Plan
We offer headshots that radiate your unique personality. The success of a headshot session relies on a combination of technical and personal skills from the photographer including the use of non-obtrusive lighting, excellent lenses, and the ability to encourage the comfort level of the client. Yes, “comfort” is key because when people are comfortable they can be themselves and that is what we want to capture for a headshot. Lighting is kept simple as to focus on the character of the individual vs. moody lighting that can be used for portraits. Additionally, the eyes and face of the individual are kept central to a headshot with no distracting clothing or props.
There are two different types of headshot sessions for actors. They consist of either a one or two hour photo shoot that will be customized to your personal needs.
There is always a consultation before the photo session, where we will talk about hair, make-up and wardrobe. Sessions can be done in studio or an outdoor location. Location shoots may require an additional fees or permits.
As for all headshot sessions:
• The best images are uploaded as proofs to the Camera Creations website gallery allowing you to make a fast and easy selection of the images included with session fee (1 to 2) for final retouching and printing (additional images $35/digital file).
* After you make your selections, I apply my years of retouching experience. Normal retouching includes: color correction, black and white conversion, straightening, cropping, blemish removal, eye and teeth whitening, light wrinkle softening, remove stray hairs. We have three levels of retouching beyond the normal retouching which will incur an additional cost: Lifestyle Lift, Extreme Makeover and Face Off.
• And, finally, we then send you the full-resolution and social media sized and optimized retouched images.
