- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our typical process of working with a new customer at 415Headshots is designed to be as personalized, collaborative, and enjoyable as possible. Here's how we approach each project: 1. Initial Consultation: We start by having a conversation with you to understand your specific needs and goals. Whether it's for professional purposes, a personal portrait, or a creative project, we want to know your vision so we can tailor our services to meet it. 2. Personal Style Discussion: Next, we discuss your personal style and preferences. We consider everything from wardrobe, makeup, and hair styling to the atmosphere and setting you want to be captured in. Our goal is to ensure that your photos not only look professional but also express your unique personality. 3. Pre-Shoot Planning: Once we have a good grasp of your vision, we plan the shoot. This involves deciding on the location (we're happy to recommend some great spots in the Bay Area), finalizing the details of wardrobe and styling, and scheduling a date and time that suits you. 4. Photo Session: On the day of the shoot, we strive to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We believe that people look their best when they're at ease, so we aim to make your experience enjoyable from start to finish. Our skilled photographers will guide you through the process, giving you advice on poses and expressions to bring out your best look. 5. Post-Production: After the shoot, we professionally edit the photos to make sure they look their best. We're meticulous about every detail, from color grading to blemish removal. 6. Review and Delivery: We then provide you with a gallery of the edited photos for you to review. We welcome any feedback or revisions you might have, as we aim for your complete satisfaction. Once you're happy with the final results, we deliver the high-resolution images via a secure digital platform. We believe that communication is key throughout this process. We're always open to your ideas and feedback, and we're dedicated to making sure you're satisfied with our service at every stage. With 415Headshots, you can count on a professional, personalized experience that leaves you with stunning photos you'll be proud to share.
