Where are you located?
The studio is located in Central Austin at I-35 and Airport Blvd.
Q: What are your studio hours?
A: Studio hours are by appointment only.
Q: Do I need to make a deposit to hold my appointment?
A: No, we believe you!
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: Cash or Check please!
Q: I am an actor. What should I bring?
A: Bring a large array of clothing to the shoot, the more the merrier. Avoid crazy patterns, black, and white. Solids are good, things you get a lot of compliments on, your favorite shirt. Try to find something that matches your eyes. Bring a variety of styles and collar types. Some button down, some t-shirt. Shoes don't matter. Try to find a few outfits that compliment your body for a 3/4 look. Biggest mistake is to not bring enough choices. Worst case scenario: 3 wrinkled t-shirts and a hangover. Try to get some sleep. Headshots are easy!
Q: My favorite shirt is black and white zebra stripes.
A: Just bring it. It is your favorite for a reason and rules are meant to be broken.
Q: What about hair and makeup?
A: If you like the way you do your makeup and hair, you can do it yourself. If not we have several excellent stylists.
Q: Can I bring my own makeup artist?
A: Yes you can, we welcome any makeup artist to use our facilities, and love meeting new stylists!
Q: I got a zit the night before the shoot!
A: I will erase it with photoshop and you will look perfect.
Q: Can my friend stay for the shoot?
A: You can bring anyone you want!
Q: How long will it take?
A: A 2-look session is usually about 1 to 1.5 hours of shooting, then about one hour of image selection/editing. After that your final images and disk will be finished in about an hour.
Q: Do you provide costumes?
A: No, you must bring anything you want to wear.
Q: What about reprints?
A: We can make you more 8x10s for $4 each. Your images are on file, all you have to do is give us a call or send an email and prints will be ready the next day. For mass-production we recommend Precision Camera at 38th and Lamar. They will make 50 or more 8x10s of the same image for 99 cents each.
Q: What is your philosophy on photoshopping actors headshots?
A: I think you need to look like the person in the picture when you walk into an audition. If something is going to go away on its own like a zit, I will remove it. Likewise removed are things you could have hidden with makeup. Stray hairs and other distractions are cleaned up. People love to see themselves without wrinkles but I advise you keep them in the picture if you are a serious actor.
