Who I am

Headshots

I’m not a typical headshot photographer in Los Angeles. My headshot sessions run three hours, making use of a variety of setups and allowing time for the best of what’s in you to come forward. I’m no less committed to working with actors, models and other artists in the early stages of their careers than I am to photographing established talent.

Publicity
Sessions

A publicity (PR) session is an extended shoot meant to produce a variety of images for distribution to media outlets — newspapers, magazines and social media sites. Generally, actors and others who book PR shoots have “visibility” and are represented by agents, managers and/or publicists. A PR session involves multiple setups, with frequent wardrobe and styling changes.

RATES

I don’t charge by “looks”. During your headshot session, you can explore emotional states and change clothes as you see fit. But don’t overdo it. Your clothes won’t get you the job.

CAN I DO MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?

NO, for several reasons. One: styling for the camera is its own discipline. Two: as the subject, you can’t keep an eye on your own hair and makeup while being photographed. The stylist will do just that.

DO I NEED TO BOOK THE HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST MYSELF?

No. It’s taken care of when you book your session.

CAN I BRING MY OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST?

Yes, but that person must be a professional and stay for the duration of your shoot. 

WHAT ABOUT COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS?

During your visit HoMEDICS TotalClean Air Purifiers, with UV light that kills up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, will be active.

Please postpone if you’re not feeling well prior to the shoot, and/or experiencing flu-like symptoms – the sniffles, a fever, a headache, a cough.  If you are, please call us as soon as possible:323 230-3430

CAN WE SPEAK PRIOR TO MY SESSION?

Of course! 323 230-3430.

WHERE’S THE STUDIO?

At The Brewery, the artists’ complex in downtown L.A., off Main Street, east of Chinatown and Dodger Stadium: 620 Moulton Avenue, #114, Los Angeles 90031.  

FROM MOULTON
