What time do you shoot? How far in advance should I book?

Shoot times vary based on the type of session and availability. Depending on the calendar, book as soon as 48 hours and as far out as three months. Check here for availability.

 

How many sessions do you book per day?

Let's put it this way, we never look at the clock when photographing. More than enough time is allotted for each session.

 

How long is a photo shoot?

2-3 hours. Of course this can change based on looks, location, etc.

 

What is a look?

A look is one outfit photographed under a particular lighting setup. Adding glasses or removing a tie does not count as a separate look. We are happily flexible and will split a look in half, i.e. with glasses and without. That being said, changing tops, jackets, pants, etc., is considered a separate look.

 

What should I bring?

We recommend downloading Sean's book, HEADSHOT: the business of headshots for actors to answer all session preparation questions.

 

Do you offer student discounts?

Pricing is structured with actors and models in mind. By paying per look you end up saving more than prior student discount rates.

Can I bring my own hair and makeup artist?

By law, hair and makeup artists are considered sub-contractors and as such, must carry their own insurance to work within the studio. Many artists do not carry insurance. In this case, have your artist prep you before your shoot at your own arranged location or consider using one of ours at a discounted rate.

 

Will weather effect my shoot?

Model portfolios, yes. Actor or corporate headshots, typically no unless we have arranged to shoot an outside look for you. We touch base with you 24 hours prior to your scheduled shoot date to confirm your session. 

 

Payment options.

Payment is due at the end of your session. You may pay by cash, credit, debit, or check.

 

Do I get to see my pictures during the shoot?

Heck yes you do! We put all images on our giant 70" monitor for you to see throughout your shoot.

 

How many photos are taken?

There is no limit on exposures. We stop when we feel we have accomplished your goal.

 

Do I receive all the photos from my shoot?

Yes, all photos are given same day via an online gallery.

 

Can you print and retouch other photographers' photos?

Absolutely! Sean Turi Retouching & Printing is a full service retouching and printing lab. We take orders from coast to coast.
