All headshot sessions will take place at the CT McGhee studio located in Richmond, Texas. Specific directions will be given through email once the session is booked.
WHAT IF I WANT MULTIPLE LOOKS?
Headshot sessions are arranged in 15-minute increments. You can book for multiple looks and outfits by booking additional time slots. To inquire for those sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAN YOU COME TO MY PLACE OF WORK?
I can travel to your business. There is an additional fee for on-location headshots. Please email email@example.com for details.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your session. We have back to back sessions all day. If you do not arrive on time for your appointment, we may not be able to fit you in at another time. We will have a waiting area for your comfort.
IS HAIR/MAKEUP PROVIDED?
When you show up for your session, please come camera ready. I do not offer hair and makeup. However, once you book, I can provide recommendations for hair and makeup services throughout the greater Houston area.
CAN YOU TAKE GROUP PHOTOS OF MYSELF AND MY BUSINESS PARTNERS?
These shoots are for individual headshots only. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire for a session for your business.
CAN I BRING MY FAMILY? WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH MY CHILD?
Only those being photographed should attend the session. I can photograph children. However, you’ll have to buy an additional block of time for each person. This setup is very specific and tight and is only meant to frame one person at a time.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Please dress for the intended usage of the images. Wear colors that compliment well with your hair color, skin tone, and eye color. Avoid clothing that does not fit well, and avoid colors too close to your natural skin tone. Clothes should be ironed/pressed and free from wrinkles. I have a Pinterest Board that provides examples of what to wear.
Colors to Avoid: Bright yellow, neon colors, magenta, white shirts without jackets (only a concern if you prefer to shoot your headshots on a white background)
WHAT BACKGROUND COLORS WILL YOU PROVIDE?
I have black, white, gray, and navy readily available for your headshots. All other background colors will require a custom headshot session.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
$150 (plus sales tax) per each 15-minute session with digital delivery of 1 selected retouched image.
DO I GET TO CHOOSE WHICH IMAGE I GET RETOUCHED?
Yes! You will receive a selection of approximately 10-15 images in a gallery. From there, you will choose which photo you would like retouched.
WHAT IF I WANT MORE THAN ONE IMAGE?
You can certainly request more than one image. In fact, many clients purchase multiple images. You can choose from a few different packages depending on how many retouched images you would like thereafter your session.
CAN I SELECT ONE DIGITAL FOR NOW AND PURCHASE MORE RETOUCHED IMAGES LATER?
I purge unsold images after one year. After one year from your photo session, I cannot guarantee that to have any of your images available for purchase later.
ONCE I PURCHASE THE IMAGES, DO I OWN THE COPYRIGHT?
The copyright of the images belongs to CT McGhee Photography. However, your usage license will allow you to use your photos for Web, Print and Social Media in perpetuity. A complete buy-out of the copyrights requires separate fees and negotiation.
HOW WILL I GET MY HEADSHOT?
Your headshot will be sent to you via a Dropbox link to your email.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY RETOUCHED IMAGE?
Our turnaround time is 2 weeks for gallery delivery, and 1 week after selection to deliver the retouched image(s). A rush fee of $100 can be added to complete the process in a single week.
CAN EDIT MY HEADSHOT AFTER I RECEIVE IT?
I recommend that you do not retouch your headshot. The lighting, post-production, and retouching is purposefully finished to industry standards. While trendy filters may be attractive, you may find yourself with an over-edited photo that defeats the purpose of keeping your look professional.
