COMP CARD & HEADSHOT SESSION COMBO’S
First we shoot your actor’s headshots. Then we shoot Comp Card “looks” - shot to look like images you see in commercial print. They are “real people” photographs, not modeling shots. You place three to five of these images on your comp card.
Choose a Headshot Session and then add on the Comp card "looks".
3 Comp Card “Looks” add an additional $375
4 Comp Card “Looks” add an additional $495
5 Comp Card “Looks” add an additional $625
MAKE-UP (for Woman): $175
A Master Make-Up Artist who stays for the entire session
A beautiful natural make up look designed specifically for photography.
Changes and touch ups throughout the shoot.

All done in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Note: If you are doing a COMP CARD & HEADSHOT SESSION COMBO, the Make Up Artist will stay on for your comp card session for an additional $40 per look.
MAKE UP (for Men):
Blemish cover-up, lightening under the eyes and powdering included in price of the shoot.

SCHOOL HEADSHOT RATES:
If you’d like me to visit your acting school or University theater program, please call or email me to discuss my school group rates. I love frequent flier miles and have traveled all over the United States helping acting students achieve their headshot goals.
BOOK WITH A FRIEND DISCOUNT:
Get $100 off available for Session #1 and Session #2 when you and a friend each book a shoot. Shoots must be booked at the same time. You each will have your own shoot date.

$100 DISCOUNT applied to Session #1 or Session #2. $50 DISCOUNT applies to Session #3 or Session #4.
Your headshots were awesome the first time we shot together, but it’s been a while, Let’s collaborate again on what will be an even greater session!
I will post your password protected online gallery in 3 business days.
Next day delivery: $45 additional
High Resolution DVD of your entire headshot session: $25
Note: Many headshot photographers charge you for each additional high resolution photo beyond the few they include in your package. This can become extremely expensive. By offering the high resolution DVD for only $25 you can print or upload as many images as you want. I’m happy to save you money as I know what it’s like to live on a budget.
Regular Retouching: $45. Most headshots fall under this category.
Extreme Retouching: $65. Example - changing the color of clothing or creating different backgrounds.
