Headshots – Sydney
WELCOME TO OUR HEADSHOTS PHOTOGRAPHY
Actor Headshots – Sydney
A successful actor headshot doesn’t just make you look good; it also showcases your individual talent and personality. During our session, which usually goes for over an hour, I’ll let you be yourself, or any character you choose to be.
In a very relaxed and unhurried atmosphere, I’ll give you space to create your own image, your best pose; and I’ll be there to capture it in the best possible light.
We shoot headshots in natural light whenever possible. Therefore finding the best and the most flattering light is the first task. Once we have that, we can work on your posing and facial expressions.
We’ll spend more than an hour to find the look that you are looking for. I’ll guide you with your posing, help you with expressions and hopefully, we get a set of headshots that you will be happy with.
The style of our corporate headshots does not change that much from the actor’s headshots. However, the corporate headshots will usually be shot in your office and not outdoors.
We’ll come to you with our lighting equipment and will set up a little studio in your office area.
Social media lifestyle portraits
We’re talking about Instagram here. Facebook and LinkedIn are also part of this category, but most of our lifestyle or editorial social media portraits are for Instagram.
This is less of a headshot session and more of a fashion or lifestyle photography shoot. The images will be used to update your Instagram feed and grow the number of your followers.
These lifestyle sessions will be 2 hours and you can squeeze as many looks as you can into it.
I will upload best images from the shoot, lightly retouched, ready for your social media profile.
After the shoot
We’ll capture a couple of hundred pictures during the headshot session. From that lot, we’ll select the best 50 and we’ll upload them to your online gallery.
From there you can choose the images that you want us to retouch. We will send you the chosen images, retouched within a week.
How it works
- If you’re happy with our headshots photography style, you can make a booking. $150 deposit is essential to confirm the date. This can be paid via PayPal, credit card or bank transfer.
- On the day we meet at the agreed location and have a little chat to prepare you for the shoot. We’ll give you a few posing tips, explain the process and help you relax in front of the camera. We will direct you throughout the shoot, but it’s good to know a few universal posing tips to start with.
- No later than a week after the shoot, we’ll contact you via email with a location of your private gallery. The balance of your headshot session will have to be settled before we make the pictures available to download. You will be able to download your pictures straight from the gallery.
- From all the headshots in your gallery, you will choose those you’d like us to retouch and we’ll upload the final version of your images within a week.
We hope that you like our style of headshot photography and that we can work together soon.
How to book your headshot session in Sydney
Please use email or the CONTACT page to get in touch with us regarding your headshot session. Let us know the date you’re thinking of and whether it is going to be a standard actor’s headshot or a corporate headshot session.
A deposit of $150 is required to confirm the session and to reserve the date. Please use our Payment Page for that.
Can we change the booking date?
If you need to change your appointment for any reason, please let us know as soon as you can, so we can re-organise our schedule as well. We’ll find you a spot at another day.
Hair and makeup?
For men makeup is optional, however, women should consider a good makeup and hair for headshot photography.
If you need a makeup artist, please let us know and we can recommend someone we worked with before.
Where will the session take place?
We will take your headshots in Sydney – around the Strathfield area. The location itself is not particularly important as we’re not photographing the background. We are located in Strathfield, however, and that is the main reason.
What to wear?
Bring clothes that make you feel confident and good about yourself. Imagine your headshot session being a job interview, bring clothes that you’d normally wear to a job interview.
Bring a few sets of clothes. Variety is always good and it’s good to have a choice. At your session we will usually have time for 2-3 changes of clothes, so bring enough.
Big logos, prints are definitely out.
Well fitting clothes look much better baggy.
Stick to smart casual and you’ll be fine.
How long before we can see our images?
Your images will be available within a week from the shoot. You will be able to view and download them from your private online gallery.
If you want your images the next day, an additional $50 will be charged.
How many images do you retouch?
You can choose 4 images from your gallery to be retouched by me. Additional edits are available at $30 per image of $100 for 4 pictures.
What is the size of the images?
Your gallery will contain low resolution (Instagram size) images.
The pictures that you choose for retouching will be uploaded in low as well as high (printable) resolution.
What if it rains?
If the weather fails us, we can reschedule the shoot for another day. That’s not a problem.
