L.A. SESSIONS

If you're an entertainment professional based in Los Angeles you can now get your headshots done at my new studio situated in the very hip Atwater Village.

The studio is set in an old converted cinema with great natural light and is just off Los Feliz blvd. I always shoot both studio flash and daylight to give you a solid range of looks to suit both theatrical and commercial markets and always happy to tailor a session to your needs. We have a dedicated changing area, WIFI not to mention great local coffee and tacos just around the corner from the studio.

For 2019 I'm back and forth from London to Los Angeles, but please check out my availability on my calendar or just email me. I usually respond within 24hrs.

Session info:

Most sessions last between 2 - 3 hours depending on your session package and I usually shoot around 400-500 images per session. You can pick your session times on my calendar or email to discuss.

After your session your photos are uploaded as Online Proofs. This is your very own personal web page with your full session to view and organise your images. This is a great tool for also for busy agents and casting directors to view your images. 

After you have chosen your favourite images to be retouched and you will receive everything on a download. Your retouched images are saved at the highest resolution and are ready for printing. Included in your download are all the session images which are NOT retouched. I would recommend retouching for all the images that you choose to use for publicity and printing.

Hair and Make-Up:

I cannot stress enough the importance of getting a MUA when getting your headshots done in Los Angeles. The market here is VERY competitive and you need to be one-step ahead of the pack. Guys can sometimes get away with it, but on the whole EVERYONE should have some professional MUA look over them before going in front of the studio lights.

You get your own dedicated make-up / changing area with hangers and clothing steamer, but PLEASE iron your clothes before your arrive.

  • 3 looks = $175

  • 4 looks = $200
