In-Studio Actor Headshots

All of our Headshot sessions take place in our studio which is located in the Grant Park area of Atlanta, Georgia.

BY LOOK SESSIONS



Our "By Look" Headshot Session packages are best for those who want more creative collaboration and plenty of time to explore and play in order to get a variety of authentic emotions for each look. Looks are not timed, we make sure we get plenty of solid, authentic options before moving on.


On-set Coaching is included in the By Look Sessions. We help you connect honestly to thoughts and emotions to bring out intriguing, authentic expressions.


Complimentary Zoom Consultations are also included with every By-Look Package. We will get to know each other a bit, discuss your goals and vision for each look, how to best prepare for your specific needs, and I can answer any questions you have.


  • 1 Look Session --- $325 --- Includes 1 retouched photo
  • 2 Look Session --- $475 --- Includes 2 Retouched Photos
  • 3 Look Session --- $600 --- Includes 3 Retouched Photos
  • 4 Look Session --- $700 --- Includes 4 Retouched Photos


-Additional Retouched photos are $45 per image. You will also be able to download all of the un-edited proofs.



EXPRESS SESSION



Our Express Session is a timed session as opposed to a certain number of looks. We will shoot as many looks as we can fit in the time. Best for the actor that feels very comfortable in front of the camera with posing and emoting & has clear idea behind the purpose of each look.


  • 30 Minute Session --- $275 --- Includes 1 Retouched photo



-Time begins after first lighting test, so it will be a similar lighting setup for each look. Once we start the time, it does not stop for changing, makeup adjustments, background swaps, etc


-Studio time for initial hair and makeup application is not included in Express Sessions, but can be rented. A makeup artist can join you for touchups during the session, but you must come hair and makeup ready for your first look.


-Using seamless paper and canvas backdrops are the most efficient backgrounds for timed sessions if you are wanting multiple backdrops.


-Additional Retouched photos are $45 per image. You will also be able to download all of the un-edited proofs.


*Express headshot packages do not include a pre-session zoom consultation.


*Our Express packages do not include coaching on-set. Of course we will give feedback and support, but you must know and execute the emotions you want to explore with each look.

FAQ

Can I bring a friend or family member to the shoot?

No. Besides a parent/guardian accompanying a minor, we keep a closed set. If you have any special circumstances or concerns, please reach out to discuss further with us.

What constitutes a "Look"?

A look is typically defined by one base layer along with one background option. I do allow you to throw on a jacket or a pair of glasses and it still be considered one look. With a headshot session, we are only shooting above the waist, so no need to worry about what pants and shoes to wear. However, if a pair of shoes makes you feel really great, wear them! It will translate in your photos even if they're not being seen.

What forms of payment to you accept?

The easiest way to pay is through your client portal. My client management software (Honeybook) offers a secure way to pay through your bank or with a credit card. I also accept Zelle, Venmo, and Cashapp.

I'm not an actor, but I love your headshots, can I book a session with you?

Of course! You don't have to be an actor to work with me. I love taking corporate headshots and business headshots for people who want a little something different from the norm. If you want headshots for Linkedin and other marketing purposes that aren't stiff and show your personality, I'm your girl. If you're interested in taking more than just headshots, take a look at our Personal Branding info on taragulledgephotography.com

When will I receive my photos?

You will will receive your unedited proofs 4-5 days after your session. For retouched photos, allow 2.5 weeks for retouching and return. The 2.5 weeks starts on the next business day from day sent and you must have confirmed via text or email your selections and paid for any additional photos you may want that are not included in session price.

How do you handle rescheduling?

If you need to reschedule, just make sure you give us at least a 48 hrs notice either by email or text, and we will transfer your deposit/retainer to the new session day. If cancellation/rescheduling occurs within 48hrs of appointment time, your deposit is forfeited.

Can you refer a great Makeup Artist for our session?

Yes! I am happy to recommend makeup artists that I have worked with. Makeup artists are not included in your session fee. You will pay them directly based on their individual preferred payment method. Once I send you a list of recommendations, you will coordinate with the MUA to schedule them. I make this easier for you by providing a link to my calendar to see available days. It is not required that you book one of my recommendations. If you have a MUA you love, please feel free to book them; just let us know that you're bringing a MUA so we can block off the appropriate amount of time on the schedule.
