"What do you mean by one finished image?"
Good question! Most people who ask for headshots these days want it for on-line purposes (facebook, LinkedIn, online portfolios, and websites), but some do have needs for print (brochures, business cards, photo name-tags, etc) so to accommodate both needs, headshot sessions include one finished image, that includes two digital files, one for each of the aforementioned needs. We do this by creating jpg files that are optimized for the two different uses (web and print).
"Why do you charge more to come to me?"
Simply, it takes us a lot more time. We are happy to come to you, it is so much more convenient for you, but whatever takes us more time, has to cost more money.
"How long does the session take?"
Of course it depends on what you have asked us to do, but generally only about 30 seconds to ten minutes. If you come to the office we let you choose your favorite before you leave, so add about ten to fifteen minutes for a total of about 15-25 minutes.
"When do I get my picture?"
Well to start, a bit of vocabulary, the photographer down the street takes good "pictures", I create stunning "photographs" or sometimes I call them "Images"! But I know you aren't looking for a vocabulary lesson, it takes three to eight business days -it depends on how much re-touching you have asked us to do. (rush service available)
"I have to have it today, can you do it?"
Well we have done it that quickly before, but we charge you a "rush fee" of at least double the regular price.
What we do is fairly straight foward, but we get a few questions often and here they are:
