DO I NEED A MAKE-UP ARTIST?
No, not at all!
But if you prefer to have one, we highly recommend you using one of our talented and very skilled make up artists.
DO I NEED A CONSULTATION BEFORE THE SHOOT?
This is entirely up to you. After viewing our very thorough website, seeing how we shoot, capturing energy from different people, you should have a good idea of whether we are the right photographers for you.
Once you have thought about what your image needs are to enhance your marketability (if you have representation, please be on the same page as your agents), you should choose a photographer whose work reflects your desired outcome. Keep in mind that we are photographers whose creative artistry and job is to frame a great picture, use good beautiful lighting, capture an essence and make you feel comfortable to bring that essence forth. That being said, we understand that this is a big investment in your career and we are here to help you take it to the next level. We and our creative team will be more than happy to meet or have a phone consultation with you prior to the shoot, answer all of your questions and ease any concerns you may have.
WHAT ABOUT MY HAIR?
All of our make up artists ask our clients to come hair-ready. They will help you fine-tune your hair, watch for fly-a-ways etc but they do not do hair.
DO YOU SHOOT INDOORS OR OUTDOORS?
We shoot inside a portrait and editorial studio space with professional studio strobe lights.
Keep in mind that for fashion shots, we may go on location.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO VIEW MY SHOTS?
Your shots will be uploaded usually within 48 hours (2 business days).
DO YOU DO RESHOOTS?
We do not do reshoots. Since we shoot digital and you get to view your shots as we go, you get a good idea if we are capturing what you need. We always ask our clients to be upfront and honest with us. We feel as if we create a relaxed enough environment for you to speak up if you want to modify any direction of the shoot. This is also why it is important to do your research on your marketability and/or discuss with your representation prior to the shoot on how they market you etc.
