Head-shots & Portraiture

We specialize in portraiture using digital cameras and portable strobe lighting. This allows us to assemble a mini-studio practically anywhere for amazing shots that capture a professional studio look. Alternatively, you can opt for a custom backdrop in our studio or plan for a location of your choice, inside or out.

Samantha and Miss MoriYou can hire us alone or with other specialists who can take care of makeup, hairstyling, wardrobe and more. We can draft custom packages to take care of every detail, so you only have to worry about showing up. Our rates & flexibility are unmatched in the city. Check out my portfolio page for examples of my work.

I work primarily with makeup artist Samantha Gribble on fashion, beauty & editorial shoots as well as professional head-shots and portraits. My photography captures every detail so we always use high definition makeup to give your skin a perfect finish. Contact us with your idea or project & we will work with you!

Studio head-shots and portraits:

Eddie's portraitThis is your basic head and shoulders shot in front of a backdrop. While simple in composition, the results are always stunning.

$200 covers the session setup. This includes up to an hour of shooting, 1 look, and 5 to 10 finished images with basic editing. Additional $50 per look.

Makeup and hair styling are offered. Ask us if you would like to include these services, and we will give you a quote!

 

 

 

A “look” is defined as a change of wardrobe, hair, makeup, backdrop, location, or lighting setup that will drastically differ from the first set of images. Each look will come with 5 to 10 images with basic editing included. Find more frequently asked questions at our FAQ Page.

On-location head-shots and portraits:

Editing and retouching:

We want to insure only the best image possible at every stage to represent our vision. To insure this, all images are proofed and released with basic photo editing. Basic editing consists of photo processing techniques to adjust brightness and contrast, color balance or black and white desaturation, noise reduction and sharpness, color toning, as well as dodging and burning, and spot removal as needed. This service is included with every package.
Retouching may include skin softening, composition, and other similar digital manipulations. This is billed at an hourly rate. Please contact us for a quote!
