We’ll have a quick debriefing and we'll talk about your expectations for editing and timeline. I will then select a large percentage of the photos from the shoot to edit and send to Reproductions.
In about a week, you will get an email from Reproductions with a link to your gallery. In that gallery you will find the edited images available for viewing, downloading, retouching, and printing. This gallery will be available online for three months.
The photos in the gallery will be formatted for web use only. Reproductions does offer a full gallery download of full resolution images for $15.
While you are not required to work with Reproductions for your retouching and printing, I highly, highly recommend it. They are the industry standard for printing actor headshots, and are used by professional actors around the world. They are friendly, communicative, and exceptional at what they do. Before I partnered with them, they were already my first recommendation for headshot printing.
Should you REALLY not want to work with Reproductions, please let me know as soon as you can and I will arrange an alternate gallery delivery process.
The average turnaround time between the end of our session and having a stack of printed images in your hands is three weeks, so plan accordingly.
Should you require retouched and print-ready headshots within a day or two, I offer emergency retouching and print preparation for $200/image.
While I can and will retouch images for you, I do not print or facilitate printing at this time.
Should you not find a single photo in your gallery to be to your liking, please get in touch and we can discuss options for a reshoot.
Even if you love the photos, your feedback is always welcome!
One very important request: With the exception of cropping, I insist that you do not retouch or alter any of your digital images yourself. It may be tempting to use an Instagram filter or a retouching app, but the photos are meant to be displayed as they were delivered, without alteration. If you are unsatisfied with how an edit turned out, or want a different kind of retouching, please get in touch before taking matters into your own hands and I'll be happy to hear your thoughts.
