How do I see all the photos from my session?
You will receive a full set of proofs from your session within 24 hours through a site called WeTransfer.
All final images will be retouched- this includes cleaning up the stray hairs, blemishes, etc. I make sure to give a realistic yet cleaned up look for all head shots. You will want to keep your facial characteristics intact so that you look the same when you show up for an audition! For editorial requests, I don't mind going heavier on the retouch as per the client's request.
I suggest using a professional make up artist if you are not an expert at doing your own. Matte powder at very least is required to reduce shine.
I am located in Cherry Hill, NJ, close to Philadelphia and less than 90 minutes from New York City. My home and studio has parking. It is easy to get here by public transportation.
Fully air conditioned space with your own private guest suite with bathroom, sink and mirror. I shoot with studio lighting and also natural light.
Day Of Shoot
You should arrive with your own wardrobe. We will sit down briefly and discuss your goals for the shoot and come up with a plan for the session. Also I can help you go through your wardrobe and coordinate with backgrounds, etc.
Tips to make your shoot go smoothly:
Punctuality - always leave yourself enough time to arrive promptly- you don't want to feel rushed at all during your session.
Things to bring -
Men - Matte powder (matched to your skin tone), brush, comb, hair product, chap stick.
Women - Make-up, blow-dryer/curling iron, hair product, lint brush, etc.
Make sure to have your clothing ironed & steamed beforehand, cleaned and ready to wear; using hangers & garment bags is recommended.
I have an iron and steamer here for last minute touchups.
