Portrait Option 1

Headshots need to be updated regularly.  Also if you’ve changed your hair colour/style/length, it’s time to change / update your actor headshots too.  

This first foot and/or refresher sesh package includes a photo-shoot session with photographer Maggie, to create your one stand out headshot image.  Your selected strongest/best image will be processed from raw and colour corrected, as well as lightly retouched; converted into web and print sizing and black & white and colour and provided digitally for you/your agent to use to promote you as an actor / actress / model.

One head/shoulders stills photography image included. 

Headshot Portrait Package C:  150

Optional extra: Add a Make-Up Artist/Hairstylist to this package £100.

Maggie’s photo shoot sessions, allow for you to get the best headshots, with lighting designed to make you look like you on a good day.

A Make-Up Artist (MUA)/Hairstylist is not necessary for actor headshots, who must look like their headshots when they turn up for auditions/castings.  Working with a MUA/Hairstylist for model portfolio, or a make-over photo shoot, it is recommended to make the most of your session.

Actor Headshots options/packages: session sitting fee covers your session with the Photographer, and includes as many changes of clothes as you like/can fit in your session, and postproduction (retouching*, and digital image transfer*).  Your favourite selected image(s) will be processed, lightly retouched**, * provided digitally as both colour and black and white, both small for web/emailing and high resolution image file for you to use to print 8x10s.  

** Photo Digital Image Retouching Guideline For Actor Headshots: Permanent features (scars/wrinkles/etc that make you unique) are left untouched, so you are still recognisably you, as when you turn up to auditions, the casting director expects you to turn up to the casting looking similar the professional headshot you/your agent applies to acting castings with. Blemishes, the odd stray hair etc removed, perhaps a bad night’s sleep digitally rejuvenated under your eyes, slight whitening of teeth, etc: all possible. 

Your headshots photos need to look like current you walking through the casting directors door today; (not three years ago you, or before you changed your hair cut/colour, or got that new face tattoo, cut off your beard/mustache etc).  So when you walk into the audition or submit your self tape, the Casting Director gets what they were expecting to see, and you can focus on your acting performance and have the best chance at letting your talent shine and hopefully booking the role and leaving an positive impression, ideally putting yourself in the running for consideration for future roles.
