FAQ:

WHY IN GODS NAME DO YOU HAVE TWO WEBSITES?

My headshot work and editorial work are so different that I think its best to keep them separate. Don't worry its all still me :)

DO YOU USE NATURAL OR STUDIO LIGHT?

I work out of a natural light studio in silverlake so we can take our time and keep everything consistent and fun

DO YOU SHOOT FILM OR DIGITAL?

I mainly shoot digital. It’s much easier and more efficient for you to see what we’re getting during the shoot and for you to receive your pictures in a timely fashion...

DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE THE SHOOT?

It is not necessary, but if you would like to I am always willing to do a meet and greet before the shoot.
We can either do a consultation in person or over the phone.
It’s very important that you get along with and enjoy the company of your photographer.
If you feel awkward or uncomfortable then it will show in your pictures.
I can’t tell you how many people I have shot that said ” My last photographer and I just didn’t get along, and I could see it in the pictures”
Its very important that you feel at ease and that you’re in good hands. Which you are ;)

WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I WEAR?

This is very important. Your clothes are going to portray who you are and where you fit into the business.
So, before your shoot, put a lot of thought into your “type” or what you are likely to get hired for. If you haven’t already done so, ask around to acting teachers, casting directors and/or friends you trust to tell you the truth.
If you’re wearing street clothes, its going to have a much different effect than if you’re wearing a button down and tie.
Both are great but it is very important to think about your “type” before our session. My policy on clothes is the more the merrier. The more options we have than the more creative we can get with them. So if you are unsure, bring options.
PLEASE make sure your clothes are in good condition, washed and unwrinkled. Your appearance in the pictures will have a huge affect on how people respond to your headshots.
One thing I like to see in a headshot is layers. Things like jackets, scarves, over shirts and hats look great in pictures. Tee shirts although very useful for certain looks, resemble hospital smocks to me, but layers create shadows and dimensions to photos that are priceless. Check out what some of my other clients wore by visiting the HEADSHOTS Gallery, it may help give you some idea of what you want for your shoot.
Please no logos or distracting patterns, ultimately the shoot is about you not your clothes.

WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON RE SHOOTS?

Re shoots can be tricky. I do shoot digital, for the most part, which allows you to see what you’re getting
throughout the shoot so if something isn’t to your liking don’t ever be afraid to speak up in the moment, or it may be to late.
If you take the shots to your representation and they feel we missed something,
I do have a discounted Re shoot rate ($100) and that should take care of anything we didn’t cover the fist time around.
The only time there will be a totally free re shoot is if there are technical problems with the shots or lighting.
