If you’re interested in headshots and comp cards, everything is explained below:
Package A – Headshots: $550 (most popular package for working actors)
Package B- Comp Card: $650 (most popular package for models)
Package C – Comp Card + Headshots: $750 (most versatile package)
Package D- “Starting” Artist Session: $400 (most affordable package for beginning actors)
The “A” package includes unlimited digital color images in at least three locations, full retouching on up to 10 selected images and a DVD of all your images. The session lasts about 3 hours. I shoot a LOT of images, so you can count on a wide range of looks. Unlike some headshot photographers, I do not charge by amount of “looks” or outfit changes. I shoot till I get it. However, I find that most of my actors average about three looks per session. Please see my “FAQ” for the full details of my shooting process and what goes into making a good headshot.
The “B” Package is the best choice for actors or models looking for a comp card. Like a headshot, a comp card (also called composite card, z card, zed card or sed card) is a marketing tool. All models use them, but actors can benefit greatly from using a comp card as well as just a headshot. I love shooting composite cards because we get to play around with a variety of looks and shoot more editorial style “fun” portraits that are a little more versatile than a headshot alone. Click here to read more about comp cards and why they give you way more leverage as an actor than a headshot alone. For actors, a comp card is a great way to expand your booking potential and show your agent your versatility. For models, a comp card is essential.
The “C” package is for a comp card and a headshot together. This means that during your headshot session, I’ll take additional photographs for a composite card. This package includes a full headshot session and 3-5 different looks for the back of the comp card. A comp card usually requires around 5 or 6 hours to shoot, so if you want a comp card and a headshot, let me know in advance so we can plan the day accordingly or book separate sessions if needs be. I usually advise two sessions. Comp card shoots are a must for models but are also a lot of fun for actors, because you get to play different characters and really show off your acting chops!
The “D” package is something I offer to beginning actors and people on a tight budget. It isn’t nearly as comprehensive as my other packages, but it’s a good way to get started with headshots. The D package includes one look in one location and the session lasts about an hour. It’s a quick and economical way to get a simple headshot. I will do light retouching on up to five shots and burn your pictures to a DVD. This is also a good package for people looking for a fast and fantastic, professional and flattering image for Facebook, LinkedIn, online dating sites or other social networking websites.
Packages A, B and C include color corrections and full retouching on up to 10 selected images, a DVD (or memory stick if you prefer) of all the pictures from our shoot and files sized for both web use and print. Package D includes light retouching on up to 5 selected images and a DVD.
All fees are due and payable on the day of the shoot, you can write a check to “Donavan Freberg” or pay cash. I do not take credit cards at this time.
I have an excellent make-up artist that I work with, should you want one. If you are confident in your make-up skills, you are welcome to do it yourself but if you lack confidence in doing it yourself I highly recommend adding a make-up artist to your shoot. As an actor, you will never be on set and not have make-up on. This should be no different. Keep your hair simple and how you would wear it to an audition. If you decide to do your make-up yourself, don’t over do it. It’s best to keep it simple and clean. My make-up artist charges $75 and she is well worth it. Like me, she gets paid the day of the shoot. I always work with an assistant, she is included in my fees at no extra charge.
My rates for children (12 and under) and babies headshots is $425 and includes color corrections on selected images, a DVD of all the pictures from the shoot and files sized for web and print. I will also do light retouching on up to 5 of your favorite images, though I find that little ones rarely need much photoshop. 🙂
If you need to cancel a session, please give me at least 24 hours notice. I understand that last minute emergencies come up, but if you have to cancel the day of the session, I will require a cancellation fee of $100. This is non-refundable and non-negotiable. My time is important, as is yours. Speaking of your time, if I have to cancel a session for any reason and don’t give you at least 24 hours notice, I will give you a $100 off your future session.
I also offer a discount to repeat customers and a “friends and family” rate for those near and dear, please contact me for more details. It is usually 10% off my normal rates.
If you have any other questions regarding pricing or anything else, please shoot me an email using the contact form. I’m happy to answer.
I look forward to hearing from you!!!
