I'M NOT A MODEL, HOW SHOULD I POSE?
Most of us have a “go to” smile we pull out when someone points a camera in our direction. I’m going to guide you through the session with direction and view the photos as we go, to make sure we are getting exactly what you’re looking for in a headshot. The camera is connected to my computer and by shooting/previewing in this manner, we can adjust the focus during the session to account for anything we might have missed. We will inspect each shot one by one with you to determine your favourites before you leave.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER?
Of course, you have to like the photos of a headshot photographer. But that is not the most important thing to consider when choosing who to go with. If you and the photographer you choose connect, you most likely won’t act naturally around them. That pressure and awkwardness will show in your shots. You are trusting them with your most important marketing tool. You just have a couple of hours to get the perfect shots to represent you. Take the opportunity to have a discussion with them, or set up a consultation. Most picture takers will do these for nothing. Get a feel for who they are, and how they work. Find out how they direct their clients. This is Super Important. Odds are, you aren’t a professional model, and you have no clue what to do in front of a camera. It’s the photographer’s job to mentor you towards the shots you need. It’s your duty to entrust in them to do it!
WILL YOU GUIDE AND DIRECT ME?
This is where my work separates itself from the rest of the photographers in Western Sydney. Every single person I have ever photographed needs guidance on what to do in front of the camera. Having your picture taken is a very forced and unnatural experience. It’s the photographer’s job to create an atmosphere that you feel safe to be yourself in. I will help take your mind off having your picture taken through my direction, and banter. The more fun you have..the less time you’ll have to worry about what you look like. This will allow us to capture natural reactive expressions. These moments are when you are the most like yourself, relaxed and honest. You will leave with the life long skills to be able to ‘own it’ in front of any camera for the rest of your career.
DO YOU ONLY SHOOT HORIZONTALLY?
Shooting horizontal creates a modern look and feel to your image as it mimics the perspective to the wide screens we see all the time on our desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices. From a design standpoint, shooting horizontal allows you some extra room to add text for use with social media banners and headers and on your website about page or local publications and media press releases.
DO YOU RETOUCH MY HEADSHOTS?
Depending on the package, you will receive at least one retouched image. Blemishes will be removed along with wrinkle softening. It’s essential to keep the retouching to a minimum in order to preserve a natural look. All retouching is done by hand and not with automated skin softening software. If you have any areas of concern that you would like to have removed or retouched, please bring them up at your headshot session.
Additional Retouched Images – $80/each
HOW LONG BEFORE I RECEIVE MY FINAL IMAGES?
Retouching can take up to 7-10 business days. The final images will be delivered via email.
24hr. Rush Delivery – $75/image
HEADSHOT SUCCESS STORIES
I needed a corporate headshot fairly urgently. Tristan understanding the urgency managed to accommodate my short notice and locked in a session within a few hours. The process was fun but professional and I recommend Tristan for photography services. He really puts great emphasis on the purpose of the photo.
Tristan was amazing. Very patient and made the whole experience enjoyable and comfortable. So happy with the photos too! Highly recommend his services.
