YOU ARE APPROACHABLE, CONFIDENT, FUNNY, COOL, AND AWESOME
Does your head shot tell the world that? Let’s help you.
Most people can’t tell the difference between good photography and great photography. And for a lot of people, it doesn’t matter. But for your head shot the difference between good and great might be the difference between getting the client or not. A good head shot shows what you look like. A great head shot shows who you are and, more importantly, what it’s like to work with you.
We are an emotional species that makes irrational and unfair judgements based on tiny pictures. Let’s make your tiny picture great.
Our head shot sessions are $300 and include your favorite three hi res digital images from the shoot. We photograph you at our home studio in Cambridge. The session takes about an hour. We photograph you a little, show you the results on a projector, talk about what works and what doesn’t, and then photograph you some more. We go back and forth until you love the images.
SOME YELP! LOVE
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
We are at:
343 Medford Street
Secret Clubhouse 4a
Somerville MA 02150
There is plenty of street parking and you can just come on up (we are on the 4th floor). There is a freight elevator, if you need it. Just let us know.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
For head shots, which is all about the face, you want to keep the clothing as neutral as possible. Avoid crazy patterns, words, etc. But it is also about you and you should dress how you normally dress. You might want to bring multiple outfits so we have a choice. For actors you probably want to bring a tank top or something that shows your shoulders, as well.
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
We do not have in house hair and makeup. We want you to look like you- and a stranger applying your makeup probably isn’t the best way to achieve that.
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP OUT ALL MY WRINKLES AND MAKE ME LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER AND 20% HAPPIER?
We strive for a naturalistic approach to head shots. We want images that look like you- the best you- not a fantasy version from a world without gravity and the dimension of time 🙂 We work with angles and light to minimize the things about which you are insecure and enhance the things about you that rock. We do remove blemishes and transitory imperfections but we try to keep it real, yo.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU SHOW ME?
We start the session by photographing a few images and then showing them to you so we can all talk about what works and what doesn’t. Then we go again armed with our new knowledge. We repeat this process until you love the images. We gently coach and give you killer tips that make you look great along the way. We end up showing you lots of images and you pick only the ones you love.
HOW MUCH EXTRA ADDITIONAL DIGITAL IMAGES?
It is $300 for the session and your favorite three images. If you want more, it is $100 extra for all the other good ones (probably 15-20 total images).
CAN I BRING A FRIEND TO THE SESSION?
Yes you can. We are nice to everybody 🙂
WHEN DO I GET MY IMAGES?
We give you the digital images from the session the same day- either by email or Dropbox link. Prints take four weeks to be mailed to you.
CAN YOU COME TO OUR OFFICE AND PHOTOGRAPH OUR STAFF?
We sure can. The pricing works out like this:
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Click “CONTACT” above and fill out an email form or give us a call. We usually do head shots in the evenings, like, 6:30, 7:30, or 8:30. But we are flexible. Just give us a few days that might work for you, if you email.
