What are your Rates and Prices?

I currently have a best value rate of $240 for 4 Looks with 3 retouched photos of your choice.  This is discounted from $375, pretty much the going rate for most photographers in Toronto shooing from their own studios.

How long is a Actor Headshot Session and how many shots do I get?

I do not count time or shots. I take as many as we need and you are free to have them all. The time depends on you, if you are good in front of the camera and have the experience, the shoot will be less than an hour. if need need the time to get comfortable and need extensive coaching, the shoot maybe around the 2-hour mark. As we shoot your photos are reviewed on a 27-inch monitor. You never leave wondering whether we got the shot.

What about Retouching?

Please check out my Retouching page to see what is possible. Retouching for perfect model faces is pretty easy, but retouching everyday faces requires experience to make you look your natural best.

Is makeup and hairstyling available?

Yes, but limited by what the government allows for during the pandemic. Contact me for the latest.

What is your delivery time and format for my Headshots?

Typically, 2 days for proofs online via Google Drive and 3 days for the retouch from time of order. 

What should I wear?  What should I bring?

It’s a pain to carry all that clothing… I get it, but believe me, it’s worth the effort. You want to look a certain character type.  Start with a colour T-shirt, and if you are not sure of the colour, bring extra.  Black is always useful! If black, choose a top with more detail than plain.

A light jacket or blazer is easy to style, the cleaner the design the better.  Fitted is better than loose.  Blazers should be casual in style and matched with a collared shirt. I prefer not to shoot ties, unless you want that particular business character Look.  Pass on the heavy winter coat.  Light leather jackets work well, dark brown or black with simple collars. Complicated collars are a distraction. Dark denim jackets or shirts are always a win.

What background options are available?

I am always tweaking for new and exciting backgrounds to enhance your photos.  I want you to get noticed.  Each Look for the shoot will generally have a different background.

What precautions are you taking for COVID-19

A mask will be worn by us all time, except during the actual shoot – for you.  My mask will be a disposable medical type that is Rated ASTM level 3 and/or KN 95.  I will spray the shoot area with Vital Oxide using a commercial fogger between each session.  Vital Oxide is a hospital grade disinfectant that is rated as food safe. Two windows are open during the shoot with a high velocity fan to provide fresh air with a good flow rate for circulation. And, of course, careful distancing.
