What’s included in the headshot fee?
My headshot prices include a full 2 hours London studio shoot, meaning actors can enjoy a mix of indoor and outdoor photo shoots with about 200 photos taken during a session. The model port is approx 3 hours.
Headshot prices are kept down as I work from my own private London studio. Not in the local park as some do! Headshot prices are all inclusive with a selection of images from your package.
Photoshoot prices include 3 high-resolution copies in colour and free corresponding black and white fully retouched image. Online proofs are normally ready the same day.
Drama Students £190
Pro Actors Headshots £230
Full length & Headshots £310
Photoshoots last up to two hours and that means we get to do lots of mood and background changes and view the photos as we go. Even if it’s raining we can shoot using under the studio’s canopy.
Professional lighting equipment such as Elinchrom and Profoto and sometimes Canon Speedlite’s flash units for portability mixed with raw natural light. I refer to this as it a great way of making sure that all bases are covered for your photo shoot.
Even on a dull day, it means we can still shoot outdoors if that is what is required. My private London home Studio gives me so many options.
Prints and repros are no longer available. Basically, you can send the finished Jpeg file to a pro repro house for a full professional 10×8 print.
Once it’s been professionally retouched. It’s important to make sure when it comes to retouching headshots it’s done in a professional manner. The best advice is: always best to use a professional lab. because they are far cheaper than what any photographer offer.
Home printing really won’t cut it. Best to use a pro repro house. As most actors know, Spotlight directory means less and fewer prints are being sent out. For a good looking 10×8 print would be to avoid gloss and make sure you have nice labels for the back of the photo with your name and agents details.
Payments for sessions
There is a small, non-returnable, non-refundable deposit to secure your booking. If you need to rearrange your session more than two working days prior to your session, you can just use this money deposit towards the photo shoot on another date. I am flexible and understand that castings come in at late notice.
Your headshot package
Actors headshot packages include a defined amount of finished files. All sessions come with the high-resolution files in colour and the corresponding in black and white as per actors spotlight requirements.
Extra photos can be purchased online via the digital contact sheets. Above all, finished images will have to be fully retouched before going on Spotlight or appearing online.
Self-tape services, as well as actors headshots, are available at the London Studio. Please head over to the self-tape services page for more information.
