Frequently Asked Questions

Who are these headshots for?

My headshots are for people and businesses who understands the importance of investing in themselves. Being successful in business doesn’t come from being average and doing the bare minimum. Your headshot is a direct extension of your accomplishments — let’s make it shine.

What does a typical session look like?

In studio or on-site, creating a laid back shooting environment is one of the secret ingredients to my success.  For lack of a better word I call it a ‘session’. It’s really more like casually hanging around the studio with your friends cracking jokes and enjoying life.

But it's still work. When you arrive we’ll discuss the different clothing options you brought and see what’s going to translate best in camera. You’ll never have to wonder if you are doing the right thing, standing the right way or making the right face to the camera. You just have to be open and present and leave the rest up to me.

Where are you located?

I'm located in a quiet neighborhood, not far from Lake Merritt in sunny Oakland, California.  If Oakland feels ‘too far’  I can travel to you.

Do you travel?

Yes!

My studio is completely mobile and can be taken anywhere. I can (and do) setup at offices and buildings all over the Bay area and beyond.  There is a standard fee of $200 for most local on-site photoshoots.

How long until I get my final images?

After you have made your final selects,  the edits typically take about 5-7 business days.  If you need it sooner; rush delivery is available upon request.

How do you make your images look like that?

I have a background in commercial portrait and beauty retouching and can customize your image to whatever specs you like. (See: Photoshop Ninja) Some people like full colorful creative and others like to keep it subtle and natural.

I've worked with some of the greatest image makers in the Bay Area and my work has been published in books and magazines all over the world.

Still unsure? Don't worry, we'll discuss beforehand what style you're after to ensure your final image meets your needs and reflects your brand.  My work isn't complete until you are completely elated with the images.

I just need something plain and simple.  Do you offer discounts?

"Plain and simple" won't get you meetings with investors or a seat at the board.

What I offer are unique, high-quality images, fantastic service and a proven process for modern professionals who understand the value in doing more than just the bare minimum.

What about for groups?

If two or more people book together (more the merrier) the higher the discount.  Bring your friends!

Is there a deposit?

Yes.  Deposits are a sign of commitment for both of us. There is a $100 (per person) deposit to hold down your desired shoot date and time.

What type of payments do you accept?

To avoid fees I prefer cash or check; but also accept Venmo, SquareCash and Credit Cards.

What type of guarantee do you offer?

I stand behind my work and offer a 100% money back guarantee.
