Do I need a hair and makeup artist?
A.To put it simply, YES. Would you go to the Oscars without the right hair, makeup, and clothes?
Look, you’re trying to make a good impression and even the most minor skin blemishes can become very obvious when shooting in HD. It’s much less expensive to use a good makeup artist than to pay for more costly retouching after the shoot. At Bella Saville Photography, you are never required to have your hair/makeup professionally done. I do, however, highly recommend it to get the best variety of looks for your headshots. Our team of hair and makeup artists at Bella Saville Photography is a veteran in their field, having worked on large budget TV and Film projects, high profile clients, and many are agency represented. Every photo on my website has had professional hair and makeup, yet the outcome is fresh and very natural looking. When you’re booked on a professional TV, film, commercial, or print set, there will always be a professional hair and makeup artist. For the standard package, we start at three hair & makeup looks based on the amount of time you will be there.
What do I get in each “look”?
A.A “look” is considered a wardrobe and hair/makeup change, along with lighting and background. With each look, you may want to alter your clothing and hair style slightly such as adding a jacket or accessorizing.
Where can I go to have my hair and makeup done?
A.At Bella Saville Photography, we provide some of the best hair and makeup artists available in the Los Angeles area; they are experts at highlighting what already makes you unique and are able to emphasis those qualities that can differentiate you from your competitors. When you come to have your headshots done with our team, your goal is to capture yourself looking your best. Unless you are trained in doing makeup and hair specifically for high definition photography, you will not have the skill set to get skin tones correct. Doing your hair and makeup for photos and camera is extremely different from everyday street makeup and hair. I also make sure my artists are on set for the entire length of your shoot, assuring you that any touch ups, changes, and restyling can be done.
Free Styling Consult?
A.On the day of your photo shoot, we want to make the most of our time so preparation is incredibly important to ensure that we get the looks you need the first time. You will receive a one on one personal styling and image consultation ahead of the day of your photo session. We also include a free personalized wardrobe and multi page styling guide customized for each individual client with extensive photo references, along with a shopping guide. Additionally, we will look through any previous material that you have and send you a detailed prep list the night before your scheduled photo shoot. Our goal is to provide you with accurate headshots that represent the real you…it’s your best marketing tool and the one the casting departments will look at first. At the studio we provide a changing room, makeup station, beverages, clothing rack, and more so you can stay organized and calm.
Is my shoot weather dependent?
A.Bella Saville Photography shoots in a controlled natural light studio, so no weather ever affects your shoot and we have full control of light, backgrounds, and temperature. All sessions are shot in an air-conditioned studio with professional, natural lighting, as well as studio lighting, and a variety of backgrounds so we get the best of both worlds.
How can my agents/managers/friends look at my pictures?
A.You can easily share your entire site, or just your favorite shots, with anyone you’d like by the click of a button.
How do I reserve my shoot?
A.To guarantee your shoot is booked with Bella Saville Photography, you must sign the session agreement paperwork and provide a $150 deposit to hold your spot. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (323)617-5916 to reserve your appointment today.
What types of payment do you accept?
A.Bella accepts cash, all major credit cards, and certified checks. We no longer accept personal checks.
All Hair/Makeup artists accept cash and Venmo.
What happens after my shoot?
A.After your session is complete, I will send you a link to an online gallery where you can download all of your outstanding professional headshots. We work closely with our in house retoucher Chris as well as Pixels for all your retouching and printing needs.
