Dallas Headshot Photography of Professional Female

HEADSHOTS

Headshot photography is a form of portraiture, which is the art of displaying the likeness, personality, or mood of a person. But, unlike using sculpture or painting to create this imagery, capturing headshots with a camera is common practice for commercial or other professional use. A single professional headshot can speak volumes about a Dallas-based professional or business owner, and — if positioned properly — it can humanize your business with transformative effects.


Similarly, a complete portfolio of headshots for an organization’s staff builds credibility and helps to maximize brand positioning with a cohesive, polished presentation. Headshots should be clean, simple, and creative images that expose the humanity in its subjects while imposing personality and authority. That’s why I’ve developed a streamlined system for capturing and releasing business headshots for both small and large companies.


As an experienced Dallas headshot photographer, I am respectful of tight schedules and turnaround requests so you can focus on your business. I remain flexible and yet instructive as we work together to capture authentic professional headshots. My corporate clients who need professional headshots in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex rely on me to put them at ease with naturally-flowing conversation while providing the necessary creative direction to get the foremost shot.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION




    DELIVERY

    At the final stage of editing and processing, you will receive an email containing a link and password to an online gallery. Online galleries never expire, so images that may be lost over time can easily be re-downloaded through the client portal.

    Printing is offered at reasonable prices; printed images can be delivered straight to your office.


    PAYMENT/CANCELLATIONS

    A 50% retainer is required to reserve a date and time. The remaining 50% is to be paid by the end of the session (day of the shoot). For individual sessions, a $50 deposit is required to book the date and time.

    Cancellation of the session forfeits the deposit; see below for rescheduling information. Credit cards are accepted and can be paid through my online client portal at www.danielmottaphotography.com.


    RESCHEDULING

    Sometimes, conflicts arise, and a need to reschedule arises. Your deposit is transferable due to reschedule with 7-days’ notice. The new session must take place within 30 days of the original shoot date; once 30 days have passed, the session will be considered cancelled.


    ON LOCATION/TRAVEL

    I am available for on-location shooting throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and throughout the United States. Rates are subject to change depending on location and do not include travel expenses for shoots outside local studio locations. Taxes and travel fees will be included with each quote, as necessary.


    RETOUCHING/PHOTO EDITING DEFINITIONS

    These two terms, photo editing and photo retouching, are often mistakenly used interchangeably buy they refer to different processes.

    The differences are as follows:


    PHOTO EDITING

    This involves adjustment like white balance, color, exposure, contrast and sharpening. If there is a minor skin blemish that is distracting, for instance, I will usually remove it.


    BASIC PHOTO RETOUCHING

    This process is more involved than simple editing, and therefore, can take longer amounts of time. In addition to the color and balancing depicted above, retouching includes softening and blending of the face and neck; blemish removal; teeth whitening; brightening and red eye-removal; and hair taming around edges. The end result is a polished, professional image that will be flawless, while still looking completely natural.


    HIGH-END PHOTO RETOUCHING

    This goes beyond the initial scope of basic retouching and includes things like, swapping heads and body parts, complicated hair adjustments, removing unwanted objects, smoothing clothes, changing background colors, changing clothing colors, changing the shape of face and body parts, and color grading. High End Retouching Pricing starts at $55 per hour and time can vary depending on the size and scope of retouching wanted.
