Headshot


Welcome, and thank you for your interest in choosing me to make your headshots. Actually, a good headshot is the result of a collaboration between the photographer and the subject, so I do everything I can to make your personality shine through and the process easy and comfortable.

I like to talk with you before the session so we can get to know each other, and so I know more about your goals and potential uses for these photos.

Then we will spend roughly 2 hours together in the studio and I'll make about 100 exposures. I will suggest some poses for you to try, which is usually just a starting point for the best images which follow when you are more relaxed. You are welcome to bring a friend if you like.

I will send you a link so that you can see all the photos online within 24 hours.

- Consult with your friends, agent, etc. and choose 2 photos.

I will then optimize the chosen photos. By this I mean enhance color/grayscale values, enhance focus and perform general retouching to remove blemishes, brighten eyes & teeth and soften lines and wrinkles. Basically, the idea is to make you look your best, as you would look on a good day. Here is an example of a photo before and after:

before and after example


You will receive a personalized CD containing:

  • A high-resolution version (for 8x10 print use) and a low-resolution version (for internet use) of each photo you have chosen.
  • A Color and Black & White version of each selected photo
  • Contact sheets of the entire shoot (72 dpi)

  • for a total of 8 distinct photos.

You may then take the CD to any professional printing house (I can recommend one if you like) and order your prints in quantity.

Headshot sessions start at $250

Extra photos are $25 each. Student discounts are available.

For the Photo Session

I encourage you to bring 2 changes of clothes. Perhaps one formal and sophisticated, the other casual. Highly patterned clothing is often distracting, so I strongly recommend solid colors. Clothes that are darker than your skin tone are preferred. Women usually look great doing their own make-up, most of which may be done at home to save time, but I can refer you to a professional stylist for an extra charge if you prefer. Men generally don't need to worry about make-up. Iron all clothes before coming to the studio. Feel free to bring your favorite music to play during the session.

$100 deposit required one week before the session. This allows me to reserve this time for you and resolve any possible schedule conflicts. Deposit will not be returned if cancellation occurs within 48 hours of the session. Full payment required at the end of the session. The studio is located in Brooklyn, one block from the L train/Lorimer stop.
