Eventually We Must Get Down to Business
Life can't be all fun and games. Services must be discussed. Deals must be made. My rates for wedding, fashion and corporate photography vary depending on the size and scope of the job. Feel free to contact me for details. If you're interested in headshots, dance photography and comp cards, everything is explained below.
Headshots (Unlimited Package)
Your shoot includes at least 500 digital color images in at least four locations (inside and outside). The session lasts about 2 to 2-1/2 hours for men, and 2-1/2 to 3 hours for women (including time for hair and makeup, which is an additional charge). I'm a variety junkie, so you can count on a wide range of looks. See the FAQs for answers to questions about my shooting process.
You will have access to the images within two to three weeks after your shoot. I will select 300-400 of the best shots and post them online with Reproductions. You will be able to email them to friends and agents, post them on Facebook, and order a hi-resolution DVD from Reproductions for $25. See After Your Shoot for more specifics.

During your headshot session I’ll take 500 additional photographs for a composite card (3-5 looks). This is used by actors, models, dancers and musicians for commercial print auditions and self-promotion. A comp card is not just for models (see samples). A comp card is an important resource in addition to a headshot. The makeup cost is additional and paid directly to the artist on the day of the shoot.
Price: $1500 Quantity:
This package includes a full headshot session, plus dance shots needed for the industry. The dance shots will be used to emphasize your strength, flexibility, athleticism and artistry; they are essential for online and print promotion. Makeup fee for the Dancer Package is $250.
Price: $1100.00 Quantity:
For an additional $125 for headshots and $175 for Dancer and Comp Card packages, I will select my favorite images from your session and upload them to your own private page on my website. The layout will be very similar to a Facebook gallery. Each image will have a comments section, "like this", "share this", etc. You can email the link to personal and professional contacts and keep track of their comments. And you can enlarge each image for easy viewing. Basically, I've created a higher quality Facebook gallery for you, which you can link to from your Facebook wall.
Price: $125 Quantity:
For $100 (Headshots) or $150 (Dancer/Comp Card), you can get your pictures within 48 hours of shooting.

Discounts (Only certain discounts can be combined. Inquire for details)
Details: This discount applies if you attend grammar school, high school, college or full time acting school. Those studying Advanced Barista Skills at Joe Coffee may qualify as well, but I will need a personal demonstration.
Three to five people booking together is $725 each. Six or more booking together is $675 each. This discount applies to headshots only. Comp cards and dancer photographs are additional.
Menage a Trois
Bring a friend and I'll take $100 off for each of you. And I'll even throw in a double espresso.
I want to be your photographer for life (it's really not as creepy as it sounds), so I will take $100 off either package for returning clients. This time, you bring the coffee.
Help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels by converting your home to Green Power with Con Edison. It's quick, easy and inexpensive. By purchasing Green Power, you support the development of more facilities that generate electricity from renewable resources. Bring your electric bill or receipt and I will take $50 off your shoot.

Hair and Make-up
Hair and Make-up
Headshots - $225 for women / $150 for men, Comp Cards - $325 & up for women / $250 & up for men
Cash is required, which is paid directly to your stylist. I have three of the best make-up artists in the business- I say this without hesitation! They have years of experience and are wonderful with subtle, natural light make-up (and fantastic with hair)! Best of all, they stay for the entire session for touch-ups and hair styling. They're extremely fun to be around and will keep you feeling relaxed and beautiful. Plus, they're collaborative partners during the shoot. Whichever artist you work with, you'll be extremely satisfied with the experience. Comp Card rates are higher because of the numerous looks that will be created.
