frequently asked questions.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE?
Umm, let's start with something a little easier, shall we?
OK. BOXERS OR BRIEFS?
...that pertains to headshots...
GOTCHA! OK. UMM. WHAT IS A "LOOK"?
A look is a change of clothing. Usually the lighting/background/setting will change as well.
EASY ENOUGH. HOW MANY CLOTHING OPTIONS DO YOU THINK I SHOULD BRING?
As much as you can, really. The more options you have, the more options you have. At the bare minimum, bring a pair of well-fitting, dark denim jeans, and a minimum of 5 tops with varying necklines (i.e. crewneck, v-neck, tank top, etc.).
NOW, IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD NOT BRING, CLOTHING-WISE?
Bring the things you love (the idea is to show your most authentic self) but within reason. We know you LOVE that baby blue rabbit fur coat, but... um... maybe another day. Also, the first thing we need to see in the picture is you, so steer clear of anything that may distract the viewer (patterns, stripes, logos). In addition, select more muted colors–like cranberry instead of red, or navy or baby blue instead of electric blue–and let’s just skip white altogether.
UMM, THE DUDE TO THE RIGHT HAS ON A STRIPED-LIKE SHIRT.
Rules are made to be broken! Plus, look at that beaming face, I mean, come on!
OK, HERE'S A GOOD ONE. DO I HAVE TO USE A MAKE-UP ARTIST?
For women, absolutely. Totes required. For the gents it's optional, but it's something we can discuss during your pre-shoot consultation.
HOW NECESSARY IS THIS CONSULTATION?
Like, super necessary! Your headshot session actually starts the day we meet to discuss them. Knowing who you are, where you've been, and where you want to go informs us of how to shoot you. Not to mention, it gives you a chance to see we aren't wackos. Super helpful.
I'D SAY! AND WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Check, Cash, Visa, Mastercard, Amex. Note that full-resolution files will not be sent until the check has cleared the bank, and there is a 3% fee for credit cards.
PEOPLE STILL WRITE BAD CHECKS? BARBARIANS!
Tell me about it.
IF I HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS, I CAN JUST EMAIL YOU, RIGHT?
Yuppers! Just hit "contact" on the above menu, fill out the form, and that ish comes right to us.
No, YOU'RE amazing!
NO. YOU ARE!
We're not gonna start this again...
