Actor Headshots

I am currently shooting headshots in NYC, where I shoot in a studio. Here, I charge by time as opposed to the number of looks (as I did in L.A.). The shoots in NYC are strict in regard to time: if it's a two-hour shoot, we only have two hours and no longer.

I have two packages available:

HALF SESSION: $200

Lasts one hour. Please come makeup and hair-ready. Includes:

  • 3-4 clothing changes
  • 4 retouches ($20 for each additional retouch)
  • private online set, including set of my favorites

FULL SESSION: $360

Lasts two hours. You may come makeup and hair-ready, but you also have some time at the start to prep. Includes:

  • unlimited clothing changes
  • 6 retouches ($20 for each additional retouch)
  • private online set, including set of my favorites

I ask for a $50 deposit for either package. It's refundable up to 24 hours before the shoot. If it's less than 24 hours before the shoot, it's not refundable.

I take cash, check, Venmo, or PayPal.

All of the NYC headshots have a light gray background.

Location Shoots for Families & Artist Portraits

1 hour: $200

$100 each additional hour

This includes about 50 edited images. This is more edited images than the actor headshots shoots, but keep in mind the detail of the retouching is not as intense with these – faces tend to be farther away and editing doesn't require me to take out tiny red lines in the eyeball, etc.

In or near Los Feliz is ideal but let me know if you have any specific locations or ideas in mind.

Corporate Headshots (at your office)

  • 1-5 employees: $150 per person
  • 6-10 employees: $135 per person
  • 11+ employees: $120 per person

Each corporate headshot package includes one retouched image per person. Additional retouches are $20.

All unedited images would be uploaded to a private online gallery where you can choose which ones you'd like retouched. I do not hand over unedited images. 

I spend enough time with each person to ensure they are comfortable and we get enough "good ones." Generally I like to give each employee 20-30 photos to choose from. I work quickly and efficiently to maximize everyone's time. 

Please let me know if you would like a makeup artist to come along. It may take just a little more time out of your day, but I promise it will be worth it! The makeup artist would be paid a separate rate directly.

I have shot in both all-natural light as well as a combination of natural and studio lighting. I can bring lights if necessary. We can discuss backgrounds but that is also something I can bring with me if your office does not have the kind of backdrops that would work.

Parties & Events: $100/hour

This rate is for time spent shooting only (editing time is thrown in for free). You would own all the large, high-res digital files.

*******************************

Comedy Team/Band/Group Pics: $75

  • Up to one hour of shooting ($25 for every extra 30 minutes)
  • Multiple locations is fine
  • 5 edited images, $10 each additional
  • Optional simple photoshop / team name on photo

*******************************

Retouching: $20 per photo

If you need a headshot or portrait retouched – even if I didn't take it! – I will do it. I have been retouching for years. I have personally retouched every photo on my website.

I am available as a second shooter for weddings. I am not currently shooting weddings by myself.
