Studio Session: Individual Costumers' Casting Photos
This rate is dependent upon a minimum of 3 costumes or individuals booking together.*
With this package, you will receive a session in a SoCal studio.
Please remember this is NOT a "Cosplay" photo shoot. The photographs that are being shot are designed to get you cast for paid work in the industry. If you have an Agent or Representation, please have them contact me so I can fill out the appropriate paperwork for your photos. Your photo session will include full body images with a height chart and color wheel. All images are color timed for accuracy.
Your photo session will be shot in a private studio within
SoCal. The price is per costume or
character and you just increase the quantity to include a session for all of
your costumes. The full resolution
digital images from the photo shoot will be uploaded to a secure online Gallery
within 48 hours of the session and will be available for you to download.
All additional costumes during the session are also billed at $100/each. No other pictures will be taken at the studio then the required submission photos; unless scheduled and booked prior to your session. If you are interested in additional types of photographs, you can email me or use the Contact form for a separate bid. *The minimum number needed may change based upon the studio the session is scheduled in.
After you have purchased your session(s), you will be contacted to confirm your booking and sent the location and address of your shoot. A date and time that is convenient for you and the photographer will be chosen.
There will be will be a private or semi-private dressing room at the studio. If you need help getting into your costume, you will need to bring someone to help you get dressed, I will be unable to help you. I will not have a repair kit at the studio, so please check your costume the night before to make sure it's perfect. While I do the very best I can to look for costume inaccuracies, it is very important that you come to the session accurate. Or have someone check your costume before shooting of your CRL begins.**
