8 Questions To Ask When Shopping For Headshots


[Headshots in Los Angeles by Vanie]

When I get calls from potential clients, I often only hear one question: “What is your price?”

Price is certainly a factor in choosing a headshot photographer, but what are some other questions to ask while shopping around?  To compare apples to apples, it’s important to also ask what the headshot package includes for the price.

The following are a list of additional questions that should be on your list when shopping around!

  1. How long is the session?
  2. How many final images will I receive?
  3. How many marketing looks?
  4. How and when will I view my images?
  5. Will I receive low resolution files for online use?  Files for 4×6 proofs?
  6. How much are high resolution files for making hard copy 8x10s?
  7. How much is retouching?
  8. Is hair and makeup included?
