Info | Headshots

INTRODUCTION

Working as a casting director in Europe for last ten years and meeting many actors made me fully realized how important good headshot is. Obviously, good headshot isn’t everything, but for a casting director, it is the very first interaction with an actor. You may be the most talented actor in the world, but if your headshot doesn´t work and you don’t get noticed, you simply may not get the chance to prove it. Fortunately enough, many actors have realized, that the investment in good headshots is essential and money they invest in their photos, will most likely return with the first job they get.

Last four years I have been working as a photographer in both Europe and Los Angeles and currently live and work in Windsor, UK.

FAQ

What's included in your headshot packages?

I offer different packages depending on your needs and budget. The number of looks and shots depends on the package you choose. Each includes 70 – 80 shots per each look, cd with proofs and basic retouching of chosen shots. Basic retouching includes removal of blemishes and stray hairs, lightening under eyes, lightening of wrinkle lines, and whitening of teeth and eyes. I work with both natural light and studio lighting and use professional lenses with 12 megapixel digital camera.

Do I get all pictures from the shoot?

No. Although I know that some photographers give you all pictures from the session right after the shoot, I prefer quality to quantity. My work is not finished when the shoot is over and you go home, I love being involved in the whole creative process, take time to make selection of your best shots and adjust them for your satisfaction. For me personally, there is no point of giving you cd with 250 pictures you cannot use, but rather give you selection of best shots from the shoot. Besides, even your agent or manager doesn’t have time to go through 200-300 shots and prefer selection of best shots. From my experience, out of each photo session , there is usually about 60 – 80 best shots that you get on a cd with proofs and out of these pictures you can choose the ones you want to order, depending on package you order and these selected images you get retouched in high resolution ready for print on a cd. However, if you decide to order more pictures than you get per chosen package, you can do so in addition.

How do you guarantee I get what I want?

It is in my own interest to do my best in order to satisfy your headshot needs. You pay only for pictures you want to order, not for photoshoot itself. If you're not happy with your photoshoot, which you‘ll find out as soon as you see your proofsheets, naturally you don’t pay – we either reshoot or simply go our separate ways. This is a risk free option for all actors out there who refuse to pay for another unsuccessful photosession. Remarkably often my clients tell me they’ve spent fortune on their last headshots and ended up with pictures they don’t like and cannot possibly use as headshots, so in order to achieve best results ,before the photoshoot itself ,me and my client usually take time to sit down and go through ideas, discuss what they or their agent think would work best for them. We do our best to create relaxed and spontaneous atmosphere to get the best shots of you being you and capture the essence of your personality.
