Here are a few Tips to consider before your shoot!

Your personally crafted ShutterBug Headshot is the best representation of you. Shooting your headshot is a unique opportunity to capture this one fleeting moment in your life. It’s a glimpse into your personality and a poignant occasion to express the charm that signifies you.

Whether you are an actor, model, musician or a business professional pursuing specific goals to accomplish in your respective industry, a headshot will be required, at some point in your career, as one aspect of showcasing your character.

We have compiled a few helpful tips to guide you through the headshot process – some of it may be “cheese” but it works:

  • Smile – we believe that you should smile because it’s a natural part of you, not because you have to. There are moments in your life to be serious and other moments in your life to be silly, especially for the camera. We will guide you through your expressions. Truly feel the smile. Smile for you, then send it to the camera!
  • Collaboration – the true form of successfully accomplishing something with another person or a team is to work together in synchronicity. Working with your photographer is critical, especially to bring out the best in you. Don’t hesitate to ask or offer creative ideas and suggestions.
  • Direction – you should be able to take direction. As we shoot your headshot, an organic part of the process is to change and shift your composure, your mood, your expression. More importantly, in order to really capture your essence, you have to sincerely become coachable and follow instructions as the shoot evolves.
  • Wardrobe – choosing the “right” outfit can make or break your headshot. Wear clothes that make you feel comfortable. Obtaining “too many” opinions from friends and family about your wardrobe should not distract you. Keep the choices simple. We shoot headshots that help book talent, so the photographer will give you clear insight into which piece of wardrobe will work or not work.
  • Hair & Make-up – going over the various ways you wear your hair and make-up will help us determine the best suggestions to make, about the “look” to achieve. You want to look as natural as possible, with subtle accents of hair, and make-up to bring out your charm. A headshot session is not your typical glamour-portrait photo session, the kind you find in a mall or department store. Think natural.
  • Sleep – it is super important to get a solid night of sleep prior to your shoot. A restful feeling and a positive attitude will make a world of a difference during your photo session.
  • Food – remember to snack on a little food before your shoot. It is not a good idea to eat a heavy meal right before your session. We offer a free catered meal in some of the packages.
  • Simple – shooting your headshots should be simple. As you plan for your shoot, remind yourself of that little phrase – KISS (Keep It Simple, Silly!). Since sounding cliche is cool, we will also say “less is more” or  “make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler” or “simplicity means the achievement of maximum effect with minimum means!”
  • Fun – think positive. Think good energy. It’s your moment to  shine for the camera.

ShutterBug Headshot Rates & Additional Services

We offer a plethora of services and a myriad of packages with cost effective rates. For our headshot packages, we have a very simple price structure, with no hidden fees and no mysteries. The most important information you will need about your headshot session – it’s all right here! For Corporate or Business Goup/Individual headshot rates please contact us for a customized quote built to your needs.

It’s all about the “looks”!

ShutterBug Headshot Rates and Packages are designed around the number of looks rather than frames of shots. Our photo shoot sessions allow for the talent to warm up to the camera, have fun with the shoot, and get a variety of expressions without the worry and constraints of the number of frames.

We operate differently than most other studios – we provide you with the final number of images as specified in each respective package. Since we shoot both digital and film (upon your request), we take advantage of a digital management program where we organize all your images in the layout of a traditional film proofing system wherein the images are filed according to rolls of 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, etc. Our Process is simply to shoot until we get the best possible images under the circumstances. To keep the costs low, and extend the savings to you, we streamline the data in an efficient style.

We can also help you with prints but you do not have to come to us for your printing needs, however, we have to say our printing prices and quality rocks (wink, wink!). Our printing services mirror the classic industry style of layout and design with a few cool twists. The final images are yours, you can choose what you do with them and where you have them printed. This option provides you with considerable savings over other studios. Check out our PRINTING PRICES.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you suggest I wear for my headshot session?

Since headshots are mostly framed from the waist up, your primary focus should be the top half of your body. There are exceptions based on your photo shoot goals and objectives. Click Here for our free photo shoot check list with clear ideas and suggestions for wardrobe, hair and make-up tips. If you prefer to pick up the phone, please feel free to give us a call at 512-289-5720.

 

Is my $50.00 deposit refundable?

No, but it does apply to your full balance. Please provide us with an advanced notice if you need to re-schedule. Time is precious as we all know, so please consider your time and our time when you schedule. Each of the headshot packages stipulate the amount of time to allow for the photo shoot. Be certain that you want to shoot before you book. You can read more details in the Policies & Procedures section.

 

How long does a headshot session take?

At the least, 1 hour, starting with the basic headshot package. We recommend allowing time to travel to the location or studio to give yourself a comfortable buffer. Racing to, and through, your photo shoot session is counter productive, please allow yourself adequate time. Please consider all the headshot packages for details on time and length of photo shoot.

 

Will I have time to shave my beard or fix my hair?

Yes, people do it all the time. We want the shoot to rock just as much as you do, so, allow an appropriate amount of time for adjustments. Although it’s not mandatory, we do recommend that you have a stylist assist you. However, we highly recommend a professional hair and make-up artist.

 

Will you help me pick out my wardrobe if I bring several choices?

Yes, absolutely. Please bring as many options as you can, without clearing out your closet. Here is the basic rule of thumb in photography, especially if the focus is your fantastic face – Do not wear anything too distracting. Again, we provide a free photo shoot check list with clear ideas and suggestions for wardrobe, hair and make-up tips.

 

What kind of camera do you use?

We shoot mostly digital, using the latest technology on super-fast high-resolution cameras. Join us for a FREE Consultation Session so you can see the studio and equipment in-person before you commit.

 

Do you charge extra for retouching and finishing?

The FINAL IMAGE that comes in the package you select will have free retouching. However, each subsequent FINAL IMAGE you chose to use is $35 per photo for retouching. The process is time intensive, and like genuine fine art, it requires a meticulous attention to detail. Click Here for more information on the various packages we offer.

 

What if something’s wrong with my photos – do you offer reshoots?

Yes.  Usually the problem is discovered and corrected during the shoot.  If there is an obvious technical issue or glitch created as a result of something mechanical, yes we can fix it. We can not control your mood, temper, energy or an absolutely horrible bad hair day – unless we try  and try and try and try. However trying is not the same as proactively addressing the problem. If we mutually agree and feel we have to do a reshoot – we will absolutely shoot again.

 

How long does it take before I can view my photos after we shoot?

Within the same day as your session, more often. However, it is safer to say within 24-48 hours, contingent on final payments and download/upload times for the online photo gallery. Hours after your shoot, you will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to access your images through the internet.

 

Do you shoot in a studio or outside?

Its usually contingent on the weather and what your specific goals are with the shoot. We do both, but mostly natural light is what we prefer. We will mix natural  light with studio lights on occasion.  Studio sessions fulfill specific needs, whereas day time exterior locations are dynamic but can be doomed if it rains or “snows”.

 

Do you shoot on location or against special backgrounds?

An ideal headshot session is usually a mixture of great locations utilizing natural light and contrasting that for different “looks” with a variety of shots indoors on location or in the studio. Backgrounds, backdrops, set pieces, props, buildings, etc are always used in a minimal fashion, mostly to frame and accent the subject – you. Since the focus is you, we avoid distracting backgrounds as much as possible. Headshot Package 4 is a great place to start for a wide range portfolio-building session, especially if you want to make a splash with new images that offer a diversity of looks.

Professional Hair and Make-up Artist vs. Stylist

Often times we are asked, “what is the difference between a Stylist and a Hair / Make-up Artsist?”

The respective roles are explained below. For any ShutterBug Headshot session you have the option to come in camera-ready, add the services of a stylist or add the additional service of a hair and make up artist to any package.*

Weather you choose to use a stylist, hair and make up artist or just arrive camera ready for your shoot, keep in mind that your headshot is not a “glamour” shot – such as the kind you find in a shopping mall. The goal of a professional headshot is to capture the real – authentic – natural – “You”.

Stylist 

During your photo session we may shoot both inside the studio and/or outdoors. Overall a Stylist will help you with Wardrobe/Costume/Outfit choices, maintaing a particular “look” or “style” throughout and monitor the hair, the previously applied make-up, or annoying lint balls that get in the way of the shot.

The Stylist helps with:

1. Maintaining the make-up “look” applied prior to arrival and merely touches up the look throughout the photo shoot.

2. Keeping stray hairs from interfering with the shot, or watching wardrobe and background/location changes for consistency.

3. Cover up small blemishes to minimize post editing work for printing.

4. Control  shine, perspiration, watery eyes, make up smudges thought the shoot. A hair and make-up artist will assist during the shoot as well.

5. Providing wardrobe guidance with the items you bring to the photo shoot and also help with setting the clothing during the shoot for various frame sizes. Pressing and ironing clothes is common.

Please note that the Stylist WILL NOT apply make up not already applied prior to arrival and will not style your hair. Consider a Professional Hair / Make-up Artist.  In addition the Stylist will not have additional wardrobe elements for your use. Please bring clean, pressed or brand new wardrobe outfits – it just simply looks better on camera.

*Adding a Stylist to your headshot session is optional and will help you maintain your camera-ready look. The stylist can assist with touch ups throughout the photo shoot in order to allow you to have as much time in front of the camera as possible. It is highly recommended to book a Hair / Make-up Artist to bring out the best.

Hair / Make-up Artist

ShutterBug Hair and Make-up Artsist are highly talented, professional auteurs with experience in various areas of Photography such as fashion, print, commercials, film, video and special occasions including weddings. Our Hair and Make-up Artists have diverse backgrounds that include Fashion Design, Sculpture, Painting, Certified MAC Artistry, Licensed Cosmetology, all of  which allows our artists to have a keen sense of fashion and beauty.

If you need full services please let us know. We can make recommendations on full beauty services, such as shampooing, cutting, coloring, and styling hair, and massaging and treating the scalp.

REFUND POLICY
Photography is a blend of technical knowledge and art. A headshot session is an experience in creating this art where you are the subject.  We believe that you should enjoy your headshot experience and appreciate your images regardless of the package you choose.

Our job is to bring the technical and artistic talents to the table to create photos that resemble the true, natural you. If for some reason we experience technical difficulties during your session we will gladly refund your full session cost.

However, if there are no technical issues and you simply dislike how you or the subject appears in the  photos we offer a few reminders and solutions.

Art is subjective. Portraiture art is seen even more differently by each individual who views the image. We do not know and can not control how you view yourself so if by chance you are not happy with your headshot images we offer a few remedies to make the whole experience more fulfilling.

First and foremost, some of the packages offer re-touching on the final image or images included in the package for FREE. In some cases you will have to add retouching at a nominal fee. You simply have to request the re-touching and provide details on what you would like retouched. In addition to the final images included in your package additional photos can also be re-touched at a small additional charge.

Second, if we simply are not able to edit your image to make you happy we can set up a re-shoot. We just ask that you complete a re-shoot application which allows for us to better understand your needs. Please note that we may also request that you add a professional hair and make up artist to your package for the re-shoot. We will cover the costs for the re-shoot however costs to have a professional hair and make up artist will not be covered in the re-shoot.

If both of these options do not leave you with at least a handful of images that you are happy with, we offer a monetary refund option. All costs for time and energy spent on your session will be refunded. Unfortunately we are not able to absorb the hard costs of the session. We are able to offer a 50% refund on your total session less taxes and shipping fees.

In order to receive a refund we must be notified before your final images are selected and purchased. This includes the final images included in each package as well as any additional images selected. Upon receipt of your notification we will send you a refund application form to complete and return to help us process your request.

Once your refund request is processed we will send your refund using the secure payment gateways offered by PayPal® and PayPal Express®. Please allow 1 to 2 business days to post back to your account. We will automatically refund the paid amount less 3% for all credit card and debit card processing to cover the costs incurred by the credit card and debit card payment gateway systems. Your bank or credit card company may or may not charge a fee, please check with your respective bank or card provider.

Our agreement with PayPal® stipulates that for every digital product sold we need to ship a tangible product with the same content. Every order for High Resolution digital files, by default, with the exception of low resolution FREE digital files, will be archived and packaged as data onto a tangible disc then shipped to your address. If you do not receive the disc, please contact us so we can help follow-up and/or ship out another disc immediately. Most orders have a tracking number to help identify the product delivery status. In order to receive a refund for a tangible product disc “not received” we must be notified promptly. This includes the final images included in each package as well as any additional images selected. Upon receipt of your notification we will send you a refund application form to complete and return to help us process your request.

If you still have questions or concerns on setting up your appointment please call us. We are more than happy to walk you through the whole process of getting your headshots taken and what you can do to be prepared for your session so that you walk away with a fun experience and a great selection of images.
