Frequently asked questions
Where would the shoot take place?
The headshot session takes place in a studio setting in our place in Bromley.
What should I wear?
Pick colours that come with contrast to your skin ( t-shirt, V-shape t-shirt, V-shape blouse,
blouse). Avoid white colour as it reflects with the lights but it might work as an inside layer. Avoid all the creamy colour tones. Having a nice shirt with you as always helps. On this basis we advise you to wear clothes that compliment you and also reflect on a character.
What should i do with my hair and makeup
Nothing too fancy, intense or to change your characteristics. We need to see you. In terms of hair avoid hair cuts and to colour them the day before your headshot session because it takes time for them to settle. If you are planning to change your hair style ( for women ponny tails, half tight half loose, all loose and for men with hair product or without, ) it s better to have your hair ready accordingly so all the changes to happen fast and with ease for you and the pace of the session. We advice you to always have styles closer to your life so when the audition comes the casting director will see the same person they invited.
How long does the photoshoot take?
The photoshoot takes 2 hours. Half hour we go briefly through your lookings, what you want to achieve in your headshots and how we will work during the session so find the pace and the efficiency of the shooting fast. The shooting lasts an hour and a half.
Indoor or Outdoor is better?
Indoor shoots provide full control on light and background, whereas you have zero control on outdoor conditions. If shooting on location, do not shoot in the middle of the day when the sun is high and bright as you will not get good results. Instead, aim for the ‘golden hour’ - just before sunset is perfect.
When do i pay you? Is deposit needed?
No there is no need of a deposit for your headshot session. You just need to sort out the payment straight after you receive the first selection of your headshots and before the delivery of the chosen for editing.
