When shooting with Johnny, the goal is to find the combination of light, expression, tone and composition that best accentuates you from the rest of the lineup. For headshots, we’ll work through a variety of lighting styles and backdrops, and you’ll have the opportunity to make a few wardrobe changes along the way. Johnny will coach you to find a confident & authentic expression that will draw your audience in the manner that you seek. By the end of the shoot, you’ll have a variety of images from which you’ll make selections for final retouching. You’ll receive your selected, retouched images one week from your shoot date.
I am happy to dictate to you my own vision of what style of lighting would best illuminate you, or maybe you already have your own sense of what you’re looking for. In either case, it’s helpful to have a shared vocabulary and even a shared set of references from which we can discuss your wants and needs. Take a look at some of the galleries below in order to develop a concrete sense of what appeals to your eye.
Choosing the right look can be challenging, so don’t be shy about bringing a variety of outfits for the shoot. Make sure that you are happy with what you’re wearing and we’ll help you determine what will work best for your needs. Bring a range of styles, including various colors, cuts, and necklines. For our corporate clients, bring a few different jacket/shirt/tie combos, and keep the accessories to a minimum. Actors, have fun with your options and let’s play with some different looks alongside the old favorites. If you need to sort out some wrinkles, don’t worry, we have a steamer on site.
Hair & makeup are important aspects of your visual presentation. For this reason, we suggest the services of our Hair & Make-Up Artist, with whom we have worked closely to best compliment the lighting & stylistic choices of Johnny Shot Me.
During the shoot, we’ll preview your images between outfit & lighting changes in order to ensure that what we capture is aligned with your needs. By the end of the shoot, we’ll have a wide selection from which you and I will share our thoughts about the shots that we have and the ones that you need & we’ll choose the final image(s) for retouching. You’ll receive your selected images one week from your shoot date.
Headshot sessions include one licensed & retouched image, while the Portrait session includes two. Additional images cost $50 per image for full licensing & retouching.
