Headshots FAQs

What should I bring to my shoot?
Please DO NOT arrive to the studio Late or Early
Your favorite CD, IPOD, or MP3 player
Your hair/makeup styled. (Unless you are getting hair and makeup with us. If so, then the hair should be washed and face moisturized)
Hair brush
Wear clear deodorant
Nails manicured
Lip balm
Wearing 1st outfit
Previous headshot
Any products you prefer to wear on hair and face

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.

Where do you usually shoot?
In NYC (115 West 30th Street, New York , New York, 10001) and New Jersey (New Milford, New Jersey (Next to Paramus ), depending on where the client is located. Also, on location which is Anywhere!.  Do you recommend Natural or Studio light?

    I would like to have hair and make up applied by your staff.

    Please let me know the potential for cost of this type of service, and your availability.

    we just spoke. I am a former model and looking for professional photo/s for upcoming election. I’m running for office. There are four of us; two may or may not want photos, so I’m trying to get an idea as to pricing.
    Would like to end up with two shots that I can interchange.
    Would like to know prices for makeup artist and hair.
    Would like to know how much extra for coming to Bloomfield, NJ, as we might want one photo in front of historic building.
    Retouching pricing as well.

    Thank you very much.ReplyCancel

    Hi Alex, I am looking to get some head shots for my college theater auditions. I was wondering what kind of specials you might have and how much a couple of head shots would be. If it makes any difference, I would be going to your location in New Milford. Thank you very much!ReplyCancel
