No two photo shoots are the same, or put another way, no two weddings or portrait sessions are equal. They are all unique and need to serve your purposes perfectly. There's lots to consider and I will work closely with you to work through the finer detail as part of my engagement. My goal is to achieve the best possible outcome in respect to the quality of your photographs, their artistic merit and your comfort with the process throughout.
The information provided below broadly sets out detail that will assist you in your decision making.
You will probably have heard about me through family or a friend, or been referred by a previous client. If so, I understand that at least in part, you're relying on their recommendation of me. It goes without saying that I don't intend to let them down; or you, or me! In a similar vein, I'm reminded; 'price is what you pay; quality is what you get'.
So please, if there's anything else you need or need to know, do not hesitate to get in touch. Please also have a look at my 'other info & faq' page that contains some useful information.
For a Corporate or Group Booking; let's start a conversation in respect to your needs.
I always schedule sessions with plenty of time between them. I do this so every client receives and benefits from an unhurried experience that allows them to settle into the photo shoot. I find that this approach helps bring out the best in both of us and fits with my aim to provide you with the best photograph(s) you’ve ever had of yourself!
I understand that you are busy, so I don’t want to keep you any longer than need be, but I also don’t want to rush your headshot session either. Each and every person gets the attention they deserve in order to get the quality of photography they deserve.
The number one ingredient for a fabulous headshot outside of quality light and equipment, is the generation of flattering facial expression and body position. Well there’s a surprise; a flattering facial expression! Seriously though, that’s where my expertise and guidance will come to the fore. It’s much more important for me to produce quality work that I can be proud of and that you get value from, than to simply blast away and have you in and out as quickly as possible. Quality over quantity is the goal and I simply do not wish to compromise in this regard.
I know what you’re thinking; “……..but I can’t stand having my photo taken and they never look any good anyway!” Again, that’s where my expertise and a methodical, calm and detailed approach will make all the difference. There’s no room for being rushed; it takes a little time to get the right expressions and I understand that.
I'll be coaching you throughout the session, so you don’t need to think about a thing. In fact, the less you think the better, but that’s another story! Let’s face it, we don’t know how we look unless we’re in front of a mirror, so I’ll guide you throughout.
Your expression, your head angle, your body positioning; all of the stuff that you can’t see or should need to worry about, I’ll take care of. The aim of the session is to get some fabulous (read ‘outstanding’) shots and I'll spend as little or as long as needed in order to get them.
I love shooting headshots, so I'm in no rush to finish our shoot and from your perspective, the session cost is the same regardless, no matter how long it takes or how many shots we take.
Throughout the session, we'll stop and look at the images we've taken, so you can see what’s working and what’s not and if there's anything you want to change. It’ll be a fun and relaxed atmosphere that lends itself to getting the expressions you need from your headshots.
At the end of the session, we'll sit down and review all of your images. From there, you'll pick your favorite shots to be professionally edited and retouched. I'll give as much or as little input as you like on what the best shots are; it's sometimes nice to have an opinion other than our own when it comes to judging ourselves and what we look like.
As well as the high resolution JPEGs, you will also receive shots that are custom sized and cropped for social media platforms like LinkedIn. That'll save you the trouble of re-sizing and cropping the shots after you receive them.
The studio based headshot session fee is a flat $350+GST. This Includes;
No Time Limit On Your Session
At the end of the session, we'll sit down together and go through the images. Your final images are chosen individually at that time. This puts you in complete control of the final cost depending on how many images you require.
I don't want you to pay for more than you need and as every person has different needs, not packaging a set number of images together makes sure you're not over committing or under committing in terms of how many images you ultimately receive. You can simply decide on the day.
I honestly don't believe you'll find a better headshot photographer in the market and I'm fully committed to making sure your headshot is the very highest quality; is working for you and representing you in the way you need it to.
As a large amount of my business comes from clients referral, my aim is for you to leave the shoot and tell your friends all about your new headshots and what a great experience it was!
$75+GST per digital image including professional editing & retouching.
We don't accept anybody providing us with poor service or product in any other aspect of our life and I don't want you to accept it in your headshots either. Remember; price is what you pay, quality is what you get regardless of price!
Group Business & Corporate Headshot packages are available both in studio or on location.
