I am a Los Angeles headshot and editorial photographer who picked up a camera after years spent studying literature and film. I've worked with many people up and down the west coast some of whom you can see here. Below you'll find a breakdown of my workflow for headshot sessions. Contact me for editorial rates.

What is it like to shoot with me?
When it comes to headshots, you'll notice that the "look" of my photos varies. The reason is that I usually shoot in different locations under different lighting conditions. I stay away from templates because everybody is unique. Depending on the location and the client's needs, I use a combination of natural and artificial light. The bottom line is to make you look your best and to have fun in the process.
What's my workflow?
Prior to the shoot, we talk on the phone or via Skype in order to decide which direction we're going. I also find it helpful when actors have a mood board that sums up their character types in addition to links to their work.
Once a date is locked down, I'll email you a location map with notes. Although most clients use their own make-up and I have some powder with me for touch-ups, I can certainly bring a make-up artist to tag along (with an extra charge payable to the hair & MUA). I keep make-up minimal for headshots because you'll rarely have time to find a make-up artist when you get called in for an audition on short notice. If you're a MUA and an actor/actress, then you're one lucky double threat.
After our shoot, I will email you all your photos in low-res for review. Once you have narrowed down the look you want, I will send you a retouched copy for digital upload.
Disclaimer: If you plan to print out your headshots, I strongly recommend that you have your photos retouched by a third party such as Argentum or Reproductions. My screen's color calibration might be different from printers' out there, and you're much better off working with places that control the picture quality from beginning to end. Your headshot is your business card, and it's got to look good on paper!
