Headshots – Pricing, Info and Contact

All sessions share:

– We will take as many shots as we need to take — usually a few hundred.
– The session does not automatically include retouched shots — they are charged separately.
– Inside/Outside: We always start by taking shots inside. If you like outside shots, it’s best to book a two, or three-hour session. We can do them if the weather plays ball. As the weather is what it is, the only thing I can guarantee is a studio session. If you absolutely must have outside shots, book another photographer.
– Only clients over the age of 18.
– Only one person at a time, no joint sessions. No parents/friends/dogs.
– When you book, you pay a deposit of £50. This is deducted from the full price of the session, but if you cancel or postpone less than three days before, you lose the deposit.
– If you’re a student and this is your first session, I would usually suggest you book a three-hour session as it gives you time to try things out. But you alone know how comfortable you are in front of a camera, and how much time you may need to change your hair etc, so two hours may be just fine. Usually, a one-hour session is too rushed, but, again, you know best.
– The contact sheet goes online within 24 hours
– You receive the finished, retouched images within 10 working days from the day you email me with your choices.
– Retouched images are always supplied in both colour and black&white
– The retouched images are good to print and to submit to spotlight/imdb. You can order more shots at any time — I keep the files, and the gallery stays online for a few years.

 

Availability:
One hour sessions are quicker to come by than two hour sessions, which are usually quicker to come by than three hour ones. I’m generally booked a few weeks in advance, but the diary tends to be easier in winter. If you’re in a hurry, I can always keep you on the waiting list in case there’s a cancellation.

 

IMPORTANT: The price excludes retouched shots. You pay these separately after the session.
The cost for retouched shots is £40 each. Unretouched shots are £15, and all shots unretouched in high-res are £100.

 

 

• One-Hour Session:     £250       (no discount on this session)

Note, the price does not include retouched shots — you pay for these separately, when you email me your choices. To work out the likely overall cost, add £40 per retouched shot in addition to the price above.

One-hour sessions are great if you feel confident in front of the camera, have done this before, and you don’t need to change things around a lot. It’s best if you’ve got a simple haircut that doesn’t need much TLC, but if you know what you’re doing and can change looks quickly, then it’s possible to do this in an hour as well.

 

• Two-Hour Session:     £350,       Students: £320

Note, the price does not include retouched shots — you pay for these separately, when you email me your choices. To work out the likely overall cost, add £40 per retouched shot in addition to the price above.

You can easily do several, very different looks – it just depends on how long you need to change things. (If straightening your hair takes half an hour, book a three hour session. Similarly, if you want to do four different types of beard you probably need three hours.)

When to book:
– you are comfortable with the camera
– you’ve done this before
– you don’t need several massive changes of hair or beard

What this is not:
– A rushed three hour session. Please don’t book this if you want to hurry through 200 looks.

 

• Three-Hour Session:     £450,       Students: £400

Note, the price does not include retouched shots — you pay for these separately, when you email me your choices. To work out the likely overall cost, add £40 per retouched shot in addition to the price above.

This session gives us time to try things out without feeling rushed. We have plenty of time to review the shots as we go along and I can show you what happens in the retouch. This can be helpful particularly if this is your first session.

When to book:
– if you want several major hair changes, or beard changes.
– if you are usually uncomfortable in front of the camera, and/or had bad experiences in the past.
– usually, if this is your first headshot session.

 

• One-hour Top-Up Session     £200,        (only for returning clients)

Note, the session does not include retouched shots — you pay for these separately, when you email me your choices. To work out the likely overall cost, add £40 per retouched shot in addition to the price above.

When to book:
- Open to all previous clients within three months of your last session with me
– This is to get one, new look
– If you just changed/cut/grown/dyed hair/beard and need an updated shot
– Note: this is usually a studio-only session. If we try to pack too much into one hour, the shots suffer.

 

• High-resolution shot, retouched                                    £40
   Note: all the shots on my website are retouched.

• High-resolution shot, unretouched                               £15

• All shots, unretouched, in high-resolution,
online to download via dropbox
             £100

• Prints:

You can take the retouched, high-resolution files to any printing lab you like. Visualeyes do excellent quality prints.

• Payment:
Payment is by direct bank transfer or you can bring cash on the day. I don’t take cheques.

• Cancellations:
Cancellations and postponements are fine — life/work is what it is — but I ask you to give me as much notice as possible so I have a chance to book someone else in. If you cancel or postpone the session less than three days before, you lose your deposit. I don’t book no-shows in again unless they pay the full fee of the session they missed.

• Discounts:
There is a discount on three and two-hour sessions for full-time students at UK drama schools. You are a student if your main activity is to study acting at a drama school. Usually this means you have a student card. There are no other discounts.

•  Studio Location:
The studio is an eight minute walk from Kennigton underground station, London SE17. Kennington is on the Northern Line.
You receive the full address and directions when you book.
