Actor Headshots Package #2 more information
Can I come in for a consultation?
Sure just a give a call before and you can come on by and check out the studio and view some of my photos.
What exactly is included?
• approx. 2 hour photo session, World class photographs taken by Tom Hawkins
• 3 Fully retouched 8x10 print (black and white or colour)
• 2 discs (1 preview disc) (1 master print file disc) more info on discs>>
• available by request at no cost > an 8x10 digital master print file with your name and info on the bottom
Why is this package Better than the Basic Package?
This package can explore more aspects of your acting. The best way to land an audition is to have your headshot cater to the role you are applying for. If you are applying for the role of jealous wife plotting to murder her husband and your headshot is of you smiling away lightheartedly, you can image that the headshot will not suit the part. So as any well established actor will tell you: always cater your headshot to the role you are applying for.
What if I want more copies of the same print?
I can provide a master file CD that you can take to a reproduction printer like "rocket repro" and print as many copies as your heart desires.
Can I get other Photos printed from the photo session?
Yes each additional (different pose) 8x10 that you would like enlarged is $25 (this price includes touch ups)
This photo session usually takes about 2 hours , although there is no time limit.
Photos can be shot in my large comfortable studio or at an outdoor location or both. I personally think that it is best to get a wide range of locations.
What to wear?
Ladies: a simple top that exudes class without effort. Bring a couple of options.
Men: a nice button up, collared or even a smart tee shirt will do the job. Something that says confident style without going over the top. Bring a couple of options
In both cases one should wear something nice that does not distract from the face. Solid or neutral tones are good. Certainly avoid pinstripes, large logos, floral patterns or any loud patterns or designs that you will no doubt regret buying in a few years. Basically keep it simple .
Simply style as you usually do. If you use product in your hair, you can bring extra with you. Also unless you are getting your hair done,, bring your favorite brush in case we need to get rid of some frizzies.
About 50% of my Headshot clients get professional makeup done. I would suggest professional make up if you are unable to do proficient job of evening out the tone and getting rid of dark circles under the eyes. In many cases doing your own make will suffice.
Color or Black and White?
You can have your choice. All photos are taken in color and can be converted to black and white.
Can you do touch ups?
Yes you get the Tom Hawkins famous touch ups at no extra cost.
When do I get my Photos?
You can see your previews in as little as 24 hours. After you pick which one or ones you would like printed; allow 1 week for touch up and printing. Special rush jobs are available upon request.
How do I see my previews?
You will receive a preview CD or if you are really anxious to see your photos, I can post them to my website in a dedicated preview area (no one else will be able to see them). If you really need 4x6 paper proofs this can be arranged by request.
I'm nervous !?
Relax. The camera will not hurt you. I can honestly say the more at ease you are, and comfortable you are in your own skin the better the photos will turn out. Worrying about what others will think is a waste of time. If you relax and have a good time you will have excellent photos to show to everyone!
Things to remember while shooting:
• Draw the viewer in with your eyes
• put your shoulders at ease.
• good posture
• If you smile, make it genuine, think of a funny moment in time
• if you don't like your pose, change it
• be comfortable and natural in your pose
