HEADSHOT AND EVENT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Email me here, or give me a call to reserve date and chat about your photoshoot. I'll send over an estimate and agreement for approval. Once a retainer and signed paperwork comes through the date is officially yours. You can choose to pay by check, credit card or direct bank transfer. Full payment is due at the end of your shoot. Please note no post production will commence until final payment is received.
How do I book?
What is a Portrait Session Like?
My team and I will come to your office and load in our lighting and backgrounds roughly 1.5-2 hrs before the first person is to be photographed. Upon each person's arrival to set, my team and I will go over your team's vision, then start in on photography as many images as you desire, then immediately make selections for post production. Check out my Portfolio Here.
What are the minimum hours of photography for an event?
I require a three hour minimum for events. I'll arrive 15 minutes prior my schedule shoot time to set up my equipment and check in with you, then 45 minutes prior to doors opening I'll photograph decor and ambiance, and then the big event following your timeline and capturing all important people.
I provide three levels of post production. All shoots come with level 1 which is white balance, brightness and contrast, saturation adjustments and minor touch ups like blemishes, lint on clothing, and tiny hair fly aways. Level 2 and 3 are more intensive and include alterations like teeth whitening, wrinkle reduction, and some body slimming.All post production for events is global and include white balance, brightness, contrast, saturation and noise reduction. Each image is adjusted individually but does not include touch ups similar to headshots.
How much post production do you do on headshots vs events?
Post production takes roughly 15 business days. I can be sooner if you need them rushed. You'll receive an email to download all the files.
How long til I get my photos?
Absolutely!! I travel within the San Francisco Bay Area as well as the U.S.
Do you travel for shoots?
How much room do I need to have a studio set up at my office?
I require a minimum of 10 ft ceilings and a room that is 15ft by 15ft with no furniture that can't be moved.
No problem! I have a studio in San Francisco with free street parking and accessible by BART and MUNI.
I don't have space at my office for a studio shoot.
You got it! Let's photograph your whole team! Let me know how many people you'd like and team photo is a piece of cake.
What about team photos?
Not to worry. I make the whole process easy, comfortable and fun. I know you'll love the photos. I've been photographing portraits professionally for 17 years and am able to connect with everyone in the company from the CEO to the engineer on their first day.
But I hate having my photo taken.
One of my fabulous lighting and digital assistants will be on call to help with any fly aways, shine, and clothing de-linting. But! They are not professional hair and make up artists. Happy to recommend some wonderful people who can come to set.
What about hair and make up?
