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. A one-hour session tends to be too short if you want both inside and outside shots. 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.
– 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.

 

If this is your first session,
or you’re nervous/hate the camera/had a bad experience with your last session because the photographer was a bit of a fill-in-the-blank: The right session for you depends a little on your temperament. A longer session might be better so you have a bit more time to settle in, get used to your face on a big screen, try things out. Inversely, a short session might work better — you jump right in (more or less) and you’re out quickly and you’ll find (to your amazement) that the shots aren’t as terrible as you suspected, because you’re young and beautiful and just refuse to believe it, and also I’m not a fill-in-the-blank and I’ve done this for a bit and sort of know what I’m doing.

 

Availability:
Shorter sessions are quicker to come by than longer ones. I’m generally booked at least four weeks in advance, but the diary fluctuates. 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 don’t need to change things around too much. 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, or you want to do four different types of beard we’ll have to really keep an eye on the clock and we may find we rush a little through the looks. But it’s possible. Discuss it with me beforehand so we can make sure we time things right.

When to book:
– you are reasonably comfortable with the camera
– you don’t need several major changes of hair, make-up or beard

 

• Three-Hour Session:     £500,       Students: £450

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 and/or make-up changes, or beard changes.

 

• One-hour Top-Up Session     £200,        (only for returning clients within three months of your last session)

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 previous clients within three months of your last session with me
– 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

If you cancel or postpone the session less than three days before, you lose your deposit. If you postpone more than three times, I reserve the right to refund your deposit and cancel your booking. I don’t book no-shows in again unless they pay the full fee of the session they missed.
