All The Details For Headshots...
My address is:
304 Washington ST SE
Albuquerque, N.M. 87108
I am fully vaccinated and am following the CDC and state of NM Covid recommendations. The state of NM continues it’s mask mandate for all people when indoors, so I ask that you wear a mask when you arrive at my office and while we are setting up, then once we’re ready to shoot, I will give you time to take your mask off and check your hair and make up before we actually start shooting. I will be wearing a mask throughout our whole appointment. I am also cleaning and airing out my office between each of my clients and I have extra hand sanitizer and masks if you need one.
1) When you arrive, send me a text at (505) 620-8832 to let me know you’ve arrived, and to make sure I’m done with my previous client.
2) I’ll text you when I’m ready for you to come up.
My office is in the door with the Timbojo Productions sign and up the stairs.
There is a lobby on the ground floor where you are welcome to wait until our appointment starts.
There are bathrooms in the lobby as well.
Feel free to bring along a couple of different choices of clothing if you’d like some help figuring out what to wear.
I find for headshots, it’s best to keep it simple. Wear the colors that people say you look the best in and keep the collars and cuts simple.
For men, a nice button down shirt with a collar (and a jacket if you’d like) or maybe a nice t-shirt with a simple crew neck or v-neck it good.
For women, a nice blouse, or simple top or dress works well. Collars are fine as long as they are not too large or distracting. The same goes for scarves, blazers, or jackets… anything goes as long as long as it’s not too distracting from your face!
Both men and women, please avoid wearing anything that has a strong pattern to it (i.e. houndstooth, plaid, tie dye, etc…) or any logos. Solid colors and subtle textures/patterns are usually best.
4) Make up…
I do not provide a make up artist for our sessions, so if you would like make up for your shots, please plan on doing your own, or arranging for this yourself.
Casting directors ask that your headshots look the way you look “walking in the room”. They want to see YOU and how you really look, so they can accurately cast a role. If you do wear make up, make sure it’s not too heavy, and looks “natural”. If you would like to bring a make up artist to your session with you, please let me know in advance so I can make the proper covid protocol arrangements for our shoot.
I do have a full size, lighted, vanity mirror in my office for you to use to put on your make up and for touch ups.
5) Length of our session…
1 look sessions usually take between 30 minutes to an hour.
2 look sessions usually take between an hour and 1.5 hours.
6) Choosing photos…
When we are finished with our shoot, I will prepare an online folder for you to review your shots from the comfort of your home. I will delete any obvious bad photos (eyes closed, awkward looks, out of focus, etc…) and upload the rest for your review.
Feel free to share the link I give you with family, friends, acting coaches or agents to get their feedback.
Once you’ve chosen the shots you’d like as your headshots, I’ll have you email me the file numbers of your choices. I’ll then prepare the files for printing, which includes, color balancing and color correction (if needed), light photoshopping of any blemishes or fly away hair, and preparing the files for the printer.
7) Finished photos…
For 1 look sessions I will prepare 2 finished photos for you to take to a printer.
For 2 look sessions I will prepare 5 finished photos for you to take to a printer.
If you’d like any extra shots prepared for printing from your shoot, I’m happy to do that for an extra $25 per shot.
