FAQs About Professional Photography Sessions
Do you have parking?
The studio is located in downtown Durham, located at 105 Hood Street, where I have private on-site parking directly in front of my studio.
Why do I need a headshot?
A professional headshot immediately puts your best face forward. Headshots make great additions to a company website or business card, important for social media, LinkIn, personal branding and your website. Just about every type of professional, actor, artist, and musician benefits from having one, and no two looks are the same.
What should I wear?
Its always best to avoid bold patterns and choose something simple. Solid colors work great, especially ones that work for your skin tone. Wear something you enjoy! Keep jewelry and accessories simple.
I want you to look like yourself.
How many photos do you take?
A typical standard headshot session takes 20-25 minutes. I aim to capture the most authentic smiles and to make you feel at ease.
Should I wear my glasses?
If you normally wear glasses, please bring them! We can decide to use them or not, but its best to have them as an option.
What resolution do my pictures come in?
All images are shot in hi-res with professional cameras and professional lenses to make sure the highest standard is achieved. Clients will receive hi-res images as part of their package. I am always happy to adjust the sizes and compressions based on specific criteria for IMDb, MLS, LinkedIn, passports, websites, etc. Just ask!
How are my images delivered and how fast?
Your proof gallery is delivered within 24hours. The final images selected from the proof gallery typically take 3-5 business days, and will be presented in an online gallery for easy download, sharing, and printing.
What do you love about headshots?
I love getting to know my clients and allowing them to enjoy the session, which for most, having their picture taken is not something many ‘love’ having done. When I have the opportunity to change that, most of my clients walk-away feeling surprised about how much they enjoyed it, and that makes me very happy. I love getting the opportunity to change the mindset and provide a service that is enjoyable. It’s an investment your making, and I want you to enjoy everything about the session, along with the photography.
Do I get to keep proofs?
I invest an immense amount of time creating a product for each of my clients that represents my best work, always. Proofs are an unfinished product that requires my skill to edit and retouch which is all a part of what makes professional photography come together, and as such, I do not offer proofs.
