Headshots for Models & Actors

Building a Portfolio

It takes time to build a portfolio. Multiple shoots are needed to show the full range of looks, dress and styles that a model can achieve. Variety is important and no photographer can create a complete model portfolio in one session. This applies to both print and online portfolios. A portfolio should only include your best images. Do NOT include your high school photos, photos of you and *somebody* or cell-phone photos! Having a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist are highly recommended; more expensive, yes, but well worth the investment.


Portfolio Shoots

Your portfolio session will include a number of outfit changes with the goal of creating unique images. All sittings include unlimited poses, wardrobe changes and exposures as permitted by time. Images are tweaked for contrast and color and are provided 10-14 days after the shoot on a USB drive. Final retouching is only performed on ordered prints and files. Photography can be done on location (anywhere) or in studio. Please note, a $50 deposit is due at booking.
