If you’re curious about working with me but are not sure about the process, just scroll down to the bottom of this page to email for a FREE consultation. It can be on the same day we shoot or before. This is something I love to do, and I only want you to feel great about the process and what you get out of it.
Photos are taken in high res RAW files. I edit on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Post editing is a large part of this work, also the most timely.
I don’t have one style. I like to adjust the style for who I’m shooting. I like improving. Everyone’s different and I think their photos should represent that, especially in a headshot or portrait that needs to represent the vibe of the individual. Coming from Los Angeles I’ve had my share of headshot horrors and disappointing experiences that usually cost me $800 and more. I felt the headshots never looked like me, that’s not my hair, or the way I ware my make up, or my expression. My photos looked like everyone else’s, and they didn’t help me get the right representation or auditions I wanted. This was not entirely the photographers fault, they didn’t know me, however that is part of the job.
I want to know who you are enough so I can bring out the best in you. There’s only so much time, however, so I recommend bringing your own music as that can help and I also want to see what inspires you so creating a pintrest album to share is also helpful.
I’ve been a performer, worked in front of the camera and behind it, I’ve worked in casting, I’ve trained extensively, and still it took me quite a while to discover my ‘look’, and there is no one answer to that question for anyone, we have so many sides and characters in us, but there is a common denominator, You. Capturing You is what our goal will be. I can tell you the best ‘look’ is your energy exuded.
Headshots: Commercial vs Theatrical
A Commercial headshot will be different than a theatrical headshot in both colors and tone. Before a session, I want you to watch a TV show you want to book, or a movie you wish you were in, and a commercial. I want you to note the clothing, the colors, textures, accessories, hair and make up. It is SO specific. Productions spend hella money on getting looks right, our job is to help them imagine you in that spot as easy as possible. Sometimes less is more, sometimes a lot of detail is right on. We want you to get into the room to audition, so you can book it.
Audition Prep/ On Camera auditioning
Audition preparation privates are also available. Auditions can pop up in a moments notice and can be very stressful. There’s so much to do in such a little time. I offer scene study, coaching, and filming. Living with a working actor, this is a regularity in our home. ;)
