The open space studio is conveniently located in the Arts District Of Downtown LA, offering a friendly, relaxed and professional atmosphere.
Equipped with top of the line lighting and camera systems the studio can offer a wide range of styles matching the client's needs.
Digital Teching, Production Setup & Tethered Shooting
The full digital-tech production setup and tethered shooting feature allows the shots to be directly transferred onto the 27' Monitor for instant viewing.
It doesn't get better than this as it gives each client full control over the entire session.
An on-camera class couldn't be more helpful than this as clients are able to review the entire shoot on the go and make adjustments accordingly.
A typical sessions runs up to 3 hours including makeup so it is crucial that clients show up on time. Due to the live-viewing feature you have full control over the session and know exactly what we have worked on by the time the shoot is done. The studio will review to entire shoot to make the final proof-selection which will then be sent to the client via Dropbox within 48 hours and can be shared with agents & managers.
The proofs are 4x6 watermarked .jpg files than can be downloaded or printed as reference.
Once the client has made their final selection the retouching turnaround takes 5-7 business days.
We highly recommend working together with one of our amazing makeup artists for the best results. The stylist will be doing makeup and knows exactly what products work best with the studio's lights & strobes.
Headshot sessions start out with the most natural/clean styling and we add as we go along. Subtle changes in makeup and hair will make sure we stay true to your styling and will never over-do.
When working with our stylist, please come in without any or minimal makeup and your hair ready. The Makeup artist will help you fine-tune your hair, watch for fly-a-ways etc but they do not do hair.
If doing your own styling, please come to the shoot ready to go. To start the session with the cleanest look I suggest coming in with your 'every day best' as that's typically the most natural.
Feel free to bring any styling products you might need to change up your hair in between looks.
Grooming is also available for men!
Although not required, a groomer can help you look your best. Making sure your skin is not going to be too shiny in the studio lights, assisting with the trimming and styling of your hair, the groomer make sure even the manliest man gets his portion of 'looking good'.
Of course you can do your own styling too!
If you got great skin and know exactly how you like your beard, scruff and hair to sit, please make sure to bring all the styling products and tools you need to get the job done.
In general, to get the most out of your session, I suggest coming in with beard or scruff and then trim and shave as we go along.
Your personal file download will be provided once the retouching on your images is finalized and ready to go.
The download-link will be sent directly to your email and is available instantly.

However, the studio/photographer has no control over how others (agents, managers, publicists, friends, family, etc.) will react to the taken images. If for any reason something causes you to doubt the marketability of any part of my session and would like to add another „look“ or two, the studio charges $150/hr of shooting and includes 1 fully edited image. This offer is available for 30 days from the date of the original session.
By booking your shoot and placing the deposit, you agree to the rates, terms and conditions listed above.
