Rates for business and actor headshot sessions.

(all prices are subject to HST)

Business: $299 / Actor: $399 

Location shoots for either: $399

  • 1.5 hour studio session for business clients. 2.5 hours in studio for actor headshot sessions. In either case we will do as many looks as we can accomplish in that time.
  • Location shoots are up to two hours in length using a combination of natural light and portable studio lights. Location shoots outside the City of Toronto but in the GTA are an additional $50. Location shoots outside the GTA start at an additional $100.
  • Two to three lighting and background changes included for business sessions. As many as time permits for actor sessions.
  • Edited (e.g. colour and balance corrected) proofs uploaded to a secure web gallery for you to view, share, and download within 2-3 business days. Proofs are watermarked.
  • For business sessions, two full retouches are included and supplied in both web resolution and print-ready high resolution jpeg. Four retouches are included for actor sessions. Retouches can take up to 10 business days to complete and be sent back to you from the time I receive your selections, so please plan accordingly.
  • Additional retouches are $40/image with a 10 business day turnaround. 
  • Clipouts (i.e. transparent backgrounds) are $25 per image.
  • Rush retouching is an additional $75 PER IMAGE and the turnaround is 24 hours guaranteed. Rush retouching is not always available, so please plan your shoot date accordingly.
  • Actor headshot print setup (thin black border and actor's name) for one of your retouches included upon request at no extra cost. Custom setups may incur an additional charge; please inquire. 
  • All shots are taken in colour but quality BW conversion of retouched photos is included at no extra charge (upon request).
  • Additional crops of each retouched image are available on request where possible and at no additional charge (e.g. landscape, portrait, square LinkedIn, cinematic 16:9, etc.)
  • All sessions include head and shoulders, half body, and 3/4 body (if requested). For full body shots in the studio add $75 to the session price -- but you don't need full body. See my FAQ.
  • A top professional makeup artist can be made available for the shoot for an additional $175. Highly recommended for the best results. The MUA does both makeup and light hair and stays on set for part of the shoot. This adds 1 hour to the appointment duration.
  • Complimentary white wine is served at afternoon studio sessions (coffee, bottled water, juice and iced tea are available all day). Red wine stains teeth. :)

LinkedIn Profile sessions in studio: $179

  • sessions are a maximum of 45 minutes and include up to two head and shoulders looks (i.e. one clothing change) with one background and one lighting setup. 
  • sessions include all proofs (watermarked) and one light retouch. Proofs are delivered in landscape or portrait orientation but the final retouch will be delivered in a square crop as well, ready to upload to LinkedIn.
  • Web and print resolution versions of your retouched image
  • Black and white version of retouch upon request.
  • Ideal for LinkedIn, company website, annual report, award announcements, etc.
  • Additional retouches can be ordered at $40/image.
