HOW LONG WILL MY HEADSHOT TAKE?
The Headshot(s) will only take 5 minutes. You will have an additional 5 minutes if you need it to fix your hair or makeup, or for a wardrobe change.
WHAT'S INCLUDED AFTER MY HEADSHOT?
Every session includes professional retouching and full resolution digital file with a full release to use the image wherever you’d like without having to ask for my permission.
WHY DO YOU USE A WHITE BACKDROP?
A white backdrop is most popular for headshots used for websites and social media.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTO?
At the end of your shoot, will immediately upload all of your proofs into a private, online gallery and email you the link. From there, you can sift through your photos on your own time and pick out your favourite shot.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY HEADSHOT?
To save time please fix your hair, iron your clothes, and do your makeup before you arrive. For clothes, I recommend solid colours without logos and patterns. I would suggest smart casual or business for professional purposes.
HOW CAN YOU HELP ME PREPARE FOR MY HEADSHOT?
I guide you to ensure your eyes, smiles, gestures, and hair are positioned perfectly to get the best headshot. I provide a bottle of spring water to helps moisten, and speciality oil remover wipes if you're sweating during the shoot.
DO YOU HAVE ANY GUARANTEE POLICY?
If you are not happy with your final images I will retake them for free up to 4 weeks after you receive your images. To get a reshoot, talk to me at firstname.lastname@example.org This policy does not apply if you like at least 1 image.
WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
I specialize in the perfect catchlight reflection. What does that mean? Well, instead of multiple reflections from two studio lamps in each eye, you’ll have only one reflection - that nice sparkle, which looks much more flattering.
DO YOU OFFER GROUP HEADSHOTS?
At this time I do not do group headshots. I do welcome friends and family to come together if each person wants to do their own headshots.
DO YOU OFFER ANY FREEBIES?
I provided a black and white headshot and a free downloadable audiobook. The audiobook is something I believe you will cherish in help you reach your full potential.
REMIND ME AGAIN WHAT I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?
You will get a colour and black and white image, both in high resolution, with professional retouching for blemishes, sunspots and wrinkles. Your images are also royalty free to use as you please.

WHAT ARE YOUR WORK HOURS?
I work Monday to Friday from 7:30-8:30pm. Shooting at 7:30pm allows customers enough time to have dinner, avoid traffic, get a new hair cut, and perhaps even buy a new wardrobe. It also is a good time before a night downtown.
