I'm a professional photographer visiting Sydney (and possibly Canberra) and happy to assist NSW based creatives with headshots and profile photos for portfolios/castings etc.

The headshots are free and for us it's a networking opportunity with Sydney based creatives. The headshots are done for your profile photos, portfolios etc. with a natural lighting, contemporary look). This is most suited for actors and models, but I've also included crew in this casting as you guys often get neglected in the "professional headshots" department :)

Long term, we'd also like to get into the headshot market as well, as well as being more involved in the industry, so any feedback you can give us on your shots is much appreciated. In our day jobs we're prolific wedding photographers, where we often only have time to do our headshots (for Brides and Grooms) in 10 seconds, so this will be a cakewalk in comparison!

Please note these headshots are 100% free - and if you bring a SD memory card we can provide you with a copy straight away on the day.

Please find below some notes on my style and my proposed approach to photograph headshots to make sure you'll be happy with the output you receive:

Recommended Approach:
My recommended approach is to use a shaded area out of the sun, with brilliant soft lighting, and a vibrant background that we can blur out in camera, and get some nice headshots with a variety of lens focal lengths to give you some different selections and options.

By "headshot" I'm referring to a head and shoulders photo, however discuss with us if you need any full length photos (full body). We typically take the photo with a large portion of your torso/arms included in the photo, so you have cropping flexibility.

Image Review and Feedback:
I'll get you to review and select the photos you like/dislike on the spot. That way you can give instant feedback as to what you like or don't like, and to also avoid situations where you get the photos in your email 2 weeks later and find the whole process was a waste of time.

Time Required:
Overall I would require around 20 minutes to complete a headshot sequence with a couple of different backgrounds (at one location is sufficient). I'm also happy to do 2 locations if you want a "Green" background (e.g Park), as well as a more urban look.

Makeup Artist:
Getting your makeup done professionally is a nice to have prior to the shoot, but not essential. If you did want to get your makeup done professionally, I recommend scheduling your headshot prior to an event or function you're going to - that way you can leverage off your makeup for both the headshoot photoshoot, as well as for whatever event you're going to afterwards.

That being said, most people (like 80%) I work with for the initial shoot just do their own makeup and are happy with the results

Transferring images:
- We can give you the photos immediately on the spot (you just need to bring a SD memory card so we can insert it into the secondary slot of our camera) (PREFERRED OPTION)
- Otherwise we can email you the photos via a dropbox still gallery (NON PREFERRED OPTION)
- As we always use flattering lighting, generally retouching is not required unless your skin has some pimples at the time or blotchy etc. If I make an assessment that retouching is required, I'll let you know (you just need to wait around 15 min whilst I retouch your photos before I give it to you).
