When you book a headshot session with Irierootsini Photography, whether it’s at our Western Sydney studio or on location, we will take you through a collaborative process, which will ensure that your headshot requirements are fully fulfilled.
We understand the importance of your personal branding. Since there are so many different types of headshots (e.g. commercial headshot, corporate headshot, actors headshot, models headshot, editorial headshot, business headshot, linkedin headshot, etc.), we want to find out exactly the kind of headshot you need and this is why you will be asked to fill-up an online pre-headshot photography session questionnaire before your schedule photography session. This will allow us to know exactly the headshots you need (e.g. background, creative lighting, natural lighting, type of poses, etc.).
First thing that you will need to decide when booking your headshot session with us is whether you want an outdoor/environmental session on natural lights or indoor/studio session under studio lights as shown on images below.
Secondly, if you do decide on our studio headshot session, you will need to choose the colour of the backdrop that is ideal for your headshot requirements (e.g. Linkedin Profile = white background, Actors Profile = black or dark grey background) as shown on images below.
Once you have submitted the online questionnaire, we will then send you samples of headshot poses which you can make your selections from, that will help determine the creative lighting needed to achieve our goal in creating the perfect headshot tailored to you if you are booking a studio headshot session. For outdoor headshots and environmental headshots, not to worry, our headshot photographer knows the best way to utilize the ambient lights and direct you to where the best place to be to capture that perfect image. As shown on the sample images below, different lighting setup (e.g. Loop lighting, Clamshell lighting, Rembrandt lighting, Butterfly lighting, Split lighting, Broad lighting, Short lighting, Hair light, Catchlight, etc.) will help accentuate your headshot.
Our headshot session usually lasts about an hour, depending on your photography requirements, of which 40 to 60 images will be captured from 8 to 12 Styled Poses. We will create a relaxed atmosphere by playing soothing music that helps you come your nerves, which will help you build a great rapport with our headshot photographer so that you can feel at ease and focus on those great headshot poses. To ensure that we have captured the images you wanted, we also have a Live View Monitor that will help you make necessary adjustments with your pose and facial expressions.
Now the fun part begins! After the headshot session, we will send you a link that will take you to the album with all your headshot images from the photo session from which you can make your selections. Depending on the agreement, you have 8 Hi-Resolution Images that you can choose without any additional charges and from the 8 Hi-Resolution Images, you can choose 2 Hi-Resolution Images for retouching without any additional charges. And basically, that's it.
We hope that this blog helped you understand what to expect from a headshot session with Irierootsini Photography and we will see you on your next headshot session.
