F.A.Q.S.

 

DEPOSITS AND CANCELLATIONS

All deposits are non-refundable. Please make your shoot a priority and clear your schedule. If you are represented I encourage you to alert your team of your shoot date and book out if necessary. A cancellation will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.

RESCHEDULING

I do allow rescheduling if the request is made at least 72 hours prior (firm) to the hour of your scheduled appointment. However only one reschedule request is permitted.

TARDINESS

Please be respectful of our time and the time of clients scheduled after you. I encourage you to map out the shoot location in advance and please plan for traffic delays, we all know Atlanta traffic is terrible. Please be advised that if you are 30 minutes late, your deposit will be forfeited.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY DEPOSIT?

I will request a deposit during your free phone consultation via Zelle or Cash App. You may inquire about available shoot dates and times but an appointment can not be confirmed until a deposit is received.

DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS OR RESHOOTS?

I do not offer refunds or reshoots. You will be allowed to see the photos periodically during the shoot to make sure your photos fit your needs. Were civil adults please be honest and speak your mind.

DO I NEED A MAKEUP ARTIST?

A makeup artist is highly encouraged for women. Anti-shine products are recommended for men. We will discuss this topic during your consultation.

SHOULD I ARRIVE TO THE SHOOT EARLY FOR MAKEUP APPLICATION?

No. Your assigned start time is when makeup application begins. If you declined to hire a makeup artist through me you should arrive to the shoot location with hair and makeup ready.

WHERE DO YOU SHOOT?

I shoot in Atlanta primarily and Miami periodically. I am able to shoot outdoors when weather permits.

HOW LONG WILL MY SHOOT TAKE?

Each look will take about 45 minutes to complete. This does not include time for makeup application.

WHAT IS A LOOK?

A look is simply the combination of a background change and a wardrobe change.

CAN I SHOOT MY TWO/THREE/FOUR/FIVE OUTFIT SESSION ON MULTIPLE DAYS?

You may shoot on multiple days but a session fee ($150 = session fee) is required for each shoot date. If hair styling is a concern, women are allowed ample time to change styles between outfits. Men are also welcome to shave between outfits.

IS A CONSULTATION NECESSARY?

Yes. We will speak by phone prior to your shoot to make sure we are on the same page. I want to know exactly what you are hoping to get out of your shoot.

HOW MANY PICTURES WILL BE TAKEN?

I will take pictures up to a 30 minute mark per look unless you advise me to proceed to the next look. I’m determined to capture the essence of who you are as much as humanly possible. Maybe you’re nervous and the photos aren’t coming out as great as your potential. If I feel that I haven’t captured a great photo of you I will go over the 30 minute mark until I get what I feel is the perfect shot. I firmly believe in giving you your moneys worth.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY PROOFS?

You will receive a link to an online gallery of your photos 24-48 hours after the shoot. Then you can pick your favorite images by favoriting the image with the heart icon.

HOW AND WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY FINAL IMAGES?

Turnaround time for your retouched photos is generally one week. Your final photos and a print release will be sent to you electronically via email. I will include print size and Instagram/web size files in your transfer. I highly recommend not getting them printed at a regular printing location as this will not produce professional results. I offer very reasonable pricing and can have the prints mailed to your house or apartment.

WHERE SHOULD I GET MY HEADSHOTS PRINTED?

Printing is a service I offer, all I need to know is the number of prints you want and they can be mailed to your house or picked up in person. Delivery may take 1-2 weeks but if you’re in a rush then I can recommend some professional printing services in the Atlanta area.

WHAT IS RETOUCHING?

Retouching is a careful edit of your photo. My goal is to keep all edits subtle, making sure that you look like your photo once my work is complete. This could include adjustments such as removal of skin blemishes, removal of flyaway hairs, slight teeth whitening, eye enhancement, and image color adjustments. A retouching preview will be sent to you for approval once my work is complete.

DO YOU RETOUCH MY PICTURES?

Yes, I professionally retouch photos for each outfit, the price is all inclusive and includes retouching.

IS RETOUCHING REQUIRED?

Retouching is highly recommended for a photo that you intend to use professionally. You are already paying for it so you should benefit from it.

CAN YOU REMOVE MY TATTOO DURING RETOUCHING?

Yes. Tattoo removal is quoted on a case by case basis starting at $5 per photo.

DO YOU SHOOT WITH FILM OR IN DIGITAL?

I shoot digital with a mirrorless camera

DO YOU SHOOT WITH STUDIO LIGHT OR NATURAL LIGHT?

Both. I am able to shoot with studio light or natural light when weather conditions are optimal.

WHAT WARDROBE SHOULD I BRING?

Actors should bring clothing that fits along the lines of the characters they want to portray. Business professionals should bring work attire. An item that you love might not photograph well, so make sure you have lots of options. You want to avoid tops with logos, slogans, or writing that could pull attention away from your eyes in the image. Nothing that will distract the viewer. Your face is the focal point of the headshot. Please refrain from wearing grey if you opt for a backdrop.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

I accept Cash, Cash App or Zelle. All remaining balances are due on the day of your shoot date.

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:

I was born and raised in Miami Florida, I love art and it might be because of my love for art that I am a perfectionist. If you need something done right, trust me you need a perfectionist. You deserve it, a good portfolio is essential for an actor. There are too many people underpaying and overpaying for mediocre head shots that get them no work. I want to capture exactly the essence of who you are so you can market yourself and succeed in this business. Which is why I turned the acting vocal exercise “red leather yellow leather” into my companies name. I hope we speak soon so please give me a call so we can get you one step closer to making your dreams come true.
