All sessions take place in the comfort of my home using a backdrop and also on location close to my home (W7).
I have worked with people and faces for a long time so I know how awkward and uncomfortable it can be to get in front of a lens. I too find it tricky. SO, when you arrive for your session, we will first start with a nice cup of tea or coffee and a relaxed friendly chat. I want you to feel comfortable and I also like to know my subjects so that I can look for any natural expressions that may work beautifully if re-created for a headshot.
We will first start with shots against a plain backdrop in my home, where you can comfortably change your top and look if desired. We will then go outside on location close to my home and shoot against any natural backdrops, whether that’s in an open space with greenery or textured brick walls. We will allow for a minimum of 1 top change while on location so that you get a at least 2 looks.
I like my clients to get the most from their session with a variety of looks and backdrops however if you would prefer all your shots to be outside on location, or on the contrary all against a plain backdrop rather than a mix of the two, then that’s absolutely fine. Just let me know your preferences.
If we have time during the session, I like to give my clients the option to view their headshots as we go. I will load them up onto a screen for you to view so you can check you’re happy with the direction and we can make some initial selections for your proofing gallery.
If you would prefer to shoot at a location of your choice, I am very happy to travel and some minor travel costs may be added to the fee. Please note that not all shooting benefits will be available if we shoot at your chosen location, including but not limited to, shots against my backdrop and being able to see/select images during the shoot on the computer.
