How should I look for my shoot?
For headshots, you want to look like you, ok, little retouching does not hurt, but you want to look the same as when you arrive at the casting agency. If you look very different then how you usually are the agent may very well be upset because you wasted their time and will not call you again. Look in magazines and other headshots, get ideas for your shoot. Practice in front of a mirror; know what expressions work for you. Practice Smiling; practice a sexy look, practice serious, practice, practice, and practice. Both – Get a good night sleep before the shoot. Drink a lot of water before the shoot. Do not use alcohol or smoke the night before and day of the shoot
How and when do you get paid?
I require a 50% deposit to hold the appointment date. For deposit I can take a check or Credit Card here. The balance is due at time of the shoot. For the final payment I prefer cash. The deposit guarantees a session with me. Appointments are first come and first serve. If you would like a session without a deposit, this is not a problem but there is no guarantee that I will be able your photo! : (
What if I have to Cancel?
You must send me an email two business days otherwise you lose your deposit. SORRY! If you need to reschedule, no problem, I will honor your deposit for one year after it was made, after this time, there are no refunds.
