A headshot session will typically run for 1 hour and up to 2 hours depending on how many changes are needed and can include a pre shoot strategy call to finalise a plan for the shoot.

If you want us to manage a makeup artist booking for you we charge a $100 on top of the artist fee to source and manage the booking . Alternatively we can supply a list of artists to contact and book directly. If you do book an artist you will need to get it done prior to arriving at the shoot.
If you want to bring your own artist to the shoot thats no problem. We recommend you arrive ready to shoot with the base makeup and hair done and then just have the artist there for adjustments. If you want to book the makeup area in the studio to get ready it’s $75 per hour and is subject to availability on the day.
