HOW DO I PAY?

Once you have booked your session, a non-refundable deposit of 50% is required at least five (5) working days prior to the shoot.

This deposit goes towards the total cost of your session.

Our preferred method of payment is via direct debit transfer (instructions are included on invoices). We accept cash, as well as Debit, Visa and Mastercard. The remaining balance is due the day of the session.

If you require/have requested a professional make-up artist, you can pay them directly on the day.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Do I need a professional headshot?

Your headshot is part of your marketing or visual business card.

It’s your personal logo for your personal brand and should be treated as such. There’s a great number of online marketing tools and whether you’re connecting with peers or potential new clients you will be judged by your profile picture. So its got to be the best it can be

We’re in the digital age and it doesn’t matter how great you look in that picture from your brother’s wedding that you cropped everybody out of, it just doesn’t cut it. 

What makes a Headshot shoot with you different from other Photographers?

With years of experience in media production, we offer our clients an amazing product.

Only with years of experience shooting people can you learn how to quickly direct people and make them feel comfortable in front of the camera.

We will basically teach you some techniques and dirty tricks on how to move in front of the camera without even having to think about it.

What should I do to prepare for my headshot session?

Having a photoshoot can be scary with most preferring a visit to the dentist!

We, however, will make it simple and it would feel by the end of the shoot like we are hanging out.

We will give you the confidence you need to pull it off as we know how to direct so you end up loving the shoot and won’t want it to stop.

What is a LOOK?

It simply means the number of outfits you’d like to be photographed wearing during your headshot session.

Your looks will depend on the package you have chosen but remember making a list of what and where you’re our final images will be displayed will help in determinating how many looks you require.

.

Do you shoot on location?

Yes, we do.

If you have a unique working environment or brand and so we can happily shoot on location.

It will incur an extra cost depending on the location and any expenses incurred.

Do you shoot outside?

Yes we often will add a location shot close to our Clerkenwell Studio EC1

Do I get a choice of studio backdrops?

There are times where we use custom backgrounds for very specific corporate client branding. The best headshots, however, have little to do with the colour or type of background and everything to do with the energy you’re giving the camera.

White, grey and black do very little to distract from your face and everything to complement it.

CLOTHING FAQs

How many outfits should I bring to my session?

Please feel free to bring as many outfits as you feel you need.

If you don’t have anything that you love in your wardrobe, go shopping! Leave the tags on, we can shoot around them. You can then return them after your session.

Please remember that you book your session by how many “looks” you are after.

What should I wear to my shoot session?

Wear what you feel comfortable in.

Stay away from blacks and whites, as they are just too contrasty as well as loud prints, as they’re too distracting. Earth tones and gemstones tend to make for the best colour pallets as well as the colour grey. It just works!

We recommend corporate clients dress as they would for a client meeting. If it’s business casual, then a button-down shirt or polo shirt is just fine. If it’s a suit and tie kind of industry than rock the suit and tie. We recommend actors keep things simple. Solid colour T-shirts can be great. Layers are great. Interesting necklines are great. Just don’t let the clothes outshine you in front of the camera.

Ladies, if you feel better in heels, wear your favourite heels. They won’t be in the shot, but their presence will be made known in your smile.

Should I wear jewelry in my headshot?

We recommend keeping accessories to minimum. Earrings shouldn’t dangle. Small studs are great. Necklaces shouldn’t be “chunky” or “blingy”. These shots are headshots. Less is more. The product is you, not the fashion. The fashion is there to accentuate you and your features, and not be a distraction from them.

HAIR AND MAKEUP

Do I need hair and makeup?

It all depends on the style of shoot or looks you are after.

For women, you may feel more comfortable with a professional service and a little pampering of hair and makeup but if you are confident of your own abilities then it’s not necessary.

For men, we prefer that men not wear make-up. If you feel you will shine then we have a product at the studio that we use to remove oil from your face and cut down on shine.

If you’ve hired a make-up artist for your headshot session, please come to the studio without any make-up on and be sure to moisturise well.

Should I shave before my headshot session?

Some men who opt for some of the larger headshot packages will shoot a couple looks clean shaven and a couple of looks bearded.

We have shaving facilities at the studio should you require it.

DURING YOUR PHOTOSHOOT

What happens during my photo shoot?

All headshot and portrait sessions can be customised to suit your needs. We generally start with a few warm-up shot to get to know each other and get you comfortable in front of the camera.

We will take you through some tips and tricks for taking a perfect photo that not only speed up the whole process but also apply to ‘real world’ situations, such as personal photos, ‘selfies’, group photos etc. Our main goal throughout the shoot is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, have a lot of fun and ensure you leave with great images.

 

Can I see my images during the shoot?

Yes we will select a few images as we progress through the shoot so you can see how its going.

AFTER YOUR PHOTOSHOOT

What happens after the shoot?

Shortly after the shoot you will receive an email with a PDF contact sheet of the best from the shoot.
Depending on your chosen package, you can ‘order’ 1 or multiple images. 
Once you have selected your specified amount of images, our retoucher will produce the final images. 

How long before I will receive my final images?

Retouching can take up to 7 business days. The final images will be delivered in an email download link. Be sure to save all files in a safe place.

How do I receive my images?

You will receive a WeTransfer link to your final images. 

We will supply both colour and black and white HiRes files.

Do you offer Headshot printing?

We do not personally print our headshots, but we can supply you the best printing companies available to produce some great professional  prints.
