Have Questions?

Where are you located?

My studio is downtown Rochester, NY in the Sibley Building.
260 E. Main St. Suite 3200 Rochester, NY 14604

Do you photograph teams of people?

Of course! If you have a lot of team members that are updating their headshots, I can come to your office. If you have occasional new hires, I can create a custom calendar that you can use to make an appointment for them in my studio. To find out more about my team and staff headshots click here.

Can you match my company’s existing style?

I can definitely do that. Whether you work remotely and have to fit with the rest of the team across the world or your company is just looking to change their headshot provider, I can seamlessly match photos that already exist.

What do I wear to my session?

You should bring plenty of options to the shoot, I’ll go over your choices with you when you arrive. Always bring clothes that match your style and personality. However, avoid clothes with busy patterns. Solid colors are best. Choose colors that complement your natural coloring so that your face, not your shirt, will stand out in the images. Make sure that your clothes are clean and neatly pressed. The camera picks up a lot more detail than you think. Standard retouching does not include fixing the wrinkles in your clothes. Make sure to dress comfortable, stay away from clothes that are too tight or uncomfortable. Finally, be rested and drink plenty of water the day before your shoot, it is amazing for your skin.

What about hair and makeup?

Hair and makeup is not included in the session fee. Most of the time men can get by without using professional hair and makeup, but a little powder or foundation can help even out skin tones and to keep the face from looking shiny. You can pick up a powder in your color at any department store or beauty supply store. It’s best to go where you can get professional help picking the right color. For women I recommend professional makeup, unless you don’t wear makeup (in that case, follow the tips for men above). A professional makeup artist knows how to make you look your best for the camera. You can bring your own makeup artist to the shoot, or I can provide you with a list. My office is open for you to have your hair and makeup done before your session, just make sure to let me know when you schedule your appointment.

How long does it take to get my images?

For most headshot sessions my turnaround time is five business days to post your proof gallery of images. Once you make your retouching selections it is typically another five business days before your final, edited images are delivered to you. If you have a deadline and need something even faster, be sure to let me know when you book.

How much retouching do you do?

Your images will be pretty good straight out of camera. I use flattering lighting and posing techniques to make you look your best. Before I deliver the images to you I sort through and toss any of the blinky or blurry ones, color-correct and crop them. You can order images to be digitally retouched as an add on to your session. Each image you order is then given the highest level of attention to reduce and remove wrinkles and blemishes as well as stray hairs and dark circles. The key is to enhance the image without making you look fake. For more on our retouching process you can read this post on our blog.

Do you have a Satisfaction Guarantee?

I want you to love your headshots. If there are reasons within my control (lighting, posing, etc.), then let’s fix the issue while you are here. Please let me know your concerns during the photo shoot. I show my clients their headshot images throughout the photo shoot, so you’ll know right away if you like them. It is always better to make adjustments than have you go home not happy. If you tell me that you do not like your images, you will not hurt my feelings (I have a teenager).
We may alternatively book a reshoot and you can give your headshots another try at no additional cost. If you do not want to try again, I will refund your headshot session fee and no images will be delivered.
I am not responsible for providing reshoots because clients are unhappy with their choices in clothing/makeup/hair.
If you have already chosen favorites then this signifies that you like your images.
