Professional Headshot Session
Session Info & Rates
I limit my bookings to a maximum of two sessions a day. One morning session, one afternoon.
I do this so you essentially get all the time we need for our shoot. I don't do 30 minute sessions, 60 minute sessions, etc etc. The reason for that is so we can all relax. As important as the lighting, posing, composition of the shot is, I'm experienced enough that we can get all of those things right in a few minutes. The part of the shot that takes time, and is the most important ingredient, is the expression. It's much more important to me to produce quality work that I can be proud of, than to cram as many clients through the door as possible. Quality over quantity, every time.
The last thing I want is you leaving your headshot session with a headshot that isn't what you wanted because we've only got 4 minutes left and we're not where we need to be yet. It takes a little time to get the right expressions, and that's because getting your headshot taken can make people feel uncomfortable. I understand that. The expression we want is confidence and approachability. We might get there quickly, which is great, or it might take a little longer to get there, but that's fine too, because we're not clock watching. So either way, we've still got plenty of time to do all of those outfit changes etc. we want to do. (there's no limit on outfit changes/looks).
I'll be coaching you throughout the session on everything you need to know. Expression, angles, positioning, hair, all of the stuff which you don't need to worry about. The aim of the session is to get some great shots, and I'll spend as little or as long as is needed in order to get them. I love shooting headshots, so I'm in no rush to finish our shoot, at the same time, I know you're busy and i'm not going to keep you there any longer than you need to be. As well as confidence and approachability, in your headshot, you need to look relaxed, in control, competent, like you're in control of the situation. If you don't look like that, then your headshot could be doing you more harm than good. It's all about the subconscious, and the first impression people subconsciously feel when they see our headshot. We get this perfect mix of confidence and approachability by having some fun with it, not stressing about how we've only got a few minutes left and you still wanted to try that new shirt and jacket combo.
Once or twice throughout the session, we'll stop and look at some images we've taken, so you can see what shots we're getting, and if there's anything you want to change, we can do it on the spot.
It's a fun, relaxed atmosphere that lends well to getting the expressions you need from your headshots.
At the end of the session, we'll sit down, grab a coffee, and review all of the images we shot. From there, you'll pick your favorite shots to be professionally edited and retouched, i'll give as much or as little input as you like on what the best shots are, it's sometimes nice to have an opinion other than our own in what we look like. As well as the high resolution JPEGs, I'll also make sure you receive the same shots that are custom size and crops for social media platforms like LinkedIn. That'll save you the trouble of re-sizing and cropping the shots after you receive them.
R A T E S
The studio based headshot session fee is a flat $300. This Includes;
- No Time Limit On Your Session
- Unlimited Outfit Changes
- Shoot Preparation Package Before Your Session (inc. Coaching Videos, Wardrobe Suggestions, Hair & Makeup Suggestions, & More)
- One on One Advice For Image Selection
- The 5 Star Experience that over 50 of my past clients have been kind enough to review me on Google Business Reviews
At the end of the session, we'll sit down together, grab a coffee and go through the images. Your final images are chosen individually at the end of the session. This puts you in complete control of the final cost depending on how many images you require. ($45 per image inc. professional retouching)
I don't want you to pay for more than you need, and every person has different needs, not packaging images together makes sure you're not over committing or under committing in terms of how many images you require from the session. You can simply decide on the day.
I honestly don't believe you'll find a better headshot photographer in the market. I'm fully committed to making sure your headshot is the very highest quality and is working for you and representing you in the way you need it to, while making you look great. A huge amount of my business is based on referrals. My aim is for you to leave the shoot and tell your friends all about your new headshots and what a great experience it was.
We don't accept anybody doing a lazy job in any other aspect of our life, I don't want you to accept it in your headshots.
Group Business & Corporate Headshot packages are available both in Tony's studio or on location.
