Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I SHOULD KNOW?
The main thing you should know is this: Come to your shoot with a positive attitude and use your headshots effectively. We guess that's two things.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Deep colors are great as long as they don't overpower and draw attention away from you. Don't wear wild patterns or logos on your clothing and generally it is customary to not wear jewelry if you're an actor. Layers are great for men, with mostly single color shirts and jackets. Also, remember that headshots don't typically show your pants, so you don't have to worry about that (but please wear them). Feel free to bring a few things and we'll decide what's best when you get here. Bring something that you will typically wear every day.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Great question. You want to think about what looks you plan to do for your session, and then bring anything that can help you achieve those looks. Take a look at this article to learn all about what you might want to bring to your shoot: What to Bring to Your Headshot Session
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely. Feel free to bring along your friend, parent, or significant other to hang out with you while you’re doing your shoot.
If you and your friend want to both do a headshot session, We offer the "You're My Boy Blue" package, two hours for two people for a discounted rate per person. Check it out on the "Booking" page.
HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
We can accept cards or cash, but we don't accept personal checks. Cash or card are easiest, and if you need an invoice/receipt, that's no problem at all, just ask. A non-refundable 20% retainer is made upon booking. Remainer Payments are made at the end of the session.
HOW LONG UNTIL I GET MY PICTURES?
Your images will be sent to you in full quality via a download link same day as long as your session is completed before 5pm. As soon as you get back with us with the pictures you want touched up if any, we will have your touched up images ready for you within two-three business days. If you need them right away, there is an immediate retouch charge.
CAN I USE MY OWN STYLIST?
You may opt to use your own hair stylist or makeup artist for your shoot, however please note that there will be no additional time added for styling. It is recommended that you come mostly camera-ready and then the stylist can make some final touchups before we begin shooting. They are more than welcome to stay during the shoot to ensure you look your best.
DO RETURNING CUSTOMERS GET A DISCOUNT?
Of course! Returning customers will always get 15% off all future sessions for Varisty Blue Packages.
WHAT FORMAT ARE THE IMAGES SHOT IN?
Images are shot digital. Once selected, We convert them and send them to you in high and low-res JPEGs.
