How to Book
Read me first! Almost everything you need to know can be found on this page, have a quick read and decide which package suits you.
Fill out my Questionnaire
This is essential for booking! You can find the questionnaire are the bottom of this page.
Choose a date & time
Click here to book in a session - $100(+gst) deposit is required to secure your spot. The remaining fee is due after the shoot.
Studio shoots are great because I can control the lighting and background to suit you. You can view all coloured backdrop options below, under the pricing section.
My studio is located at 309 Victoria Street, Brunswick. Because studio shoots don't rely on natural light, they can be booked any time, including after business hours.
Location Sessions (Outdoors)
For a more dynamic headshot, we can take your headshots outside. I utilise natural light, so the best time of day to shoot is in the late afternoon when the sun is at its lowest. Alternatively, we can stick to the shady areas and still achieve great results.
Location sessions will incur travel fees.
If you would prefer more variety, I often recommend starting our session in the studio and then finishing outside on the streets of Brunswick.
No additional travel fee will be included if we remain on foot, however, keep in mind that the session will take longer so I recommend booking at least Package 2.
Hair & Makeup
Hair and makeup is not included in my packages. Please refer to the list of recommendations below.
What to Wear
I always recommend wearing clothing that you feel your best in, particularly clothing that compliments your complexion, hair and eye colour. And it's always good to have options!
Unlimited clothing changes
The option for a studio or location session (or both)*
A private proofing gallery sent within 48 hours so you can select which headshots you would like retouched
Colour and black and white versions of each image
Web and high resolution versions of each image
7 business day turn around (after the selection process is completed)
Images are delivered via googledrive (no account required)
*travel & additional hour fees may apply for location sessions
*background colour choices apply to studio shoots only
Why not have a few extras? If you find that you would like more images than the package offers, extra images are priced at:
5 for $125
10 for $200
Keep an open mind! Any colour you choose can be significantly altered with lighting to appear lighter or darker.
Too many options?
Fill out my Headshots Questionnaire for a recommendation based on your complexion and hair colour
Here is an example of how significantly lighting and editing can alter an image.
Both of these shots were taken against the same blue background.
How many outfits should I bring?
That depends on which package you choose. I recommend having one clothing change per headshot; variation is key. For instance, if you go with Package One, you may bring two different shirts, or perhaps just one shirt as well as a jacket to change it up.
Can bring my hair and makeup artist to the studio?
You certainly can! If you are going to have makeup done at the studio before your session I do charge a studio hire rate of $50 per hour to use the space. This is because the process can take 1-2 hours, which is time I would usually use for another booking.
I want two different looks, can I shave or change my hair halfway through the shoot?
Yep, no problem, don't forget to bring any tools, towels or products that you may require. If you are going to make a drastic change that may take over 20 minutes, please let me know in advance.
Can I have all the images from the shoot? Or edit them myself?
No, sorry (exceptions for publications/agencies). Handing over unedited images is basically handing over unfinished work. There's also a lot of boring corrections that are essential when working with raw files, an Insta filter just won't cut it! You can request a particular look for your final edits, I am happy to match it. And besides, no one really needs 187 headshots, that's what selfies are for!
Can I complete the selection process during my headshot session instead of waiting for the proofing page?
Absolutely, as long as you let me know during the booking process so I can allocate time for this during your session and make sure I don't have another client coming.
If you would like to know my availability please use this calendar - it will be a lot quicker than emailing me :)
