When Not All Portrait Photography Is Alike

Looking for a Chicago Headshot Photographer? Is your business getting group headshots? Is your company hiring a portrait or headshot photographer to capture group photos or individual headshots? Be sure to read on. No, this isn’t a blog post about one photographer being better than another or why you need to look for a photographer with specific training or portfolio. It is about understanding the different types of portrait photography, so that you can best choose a photographer. Since this is not a subject many consider, I believe it is worth mentioning.

1. Review plans, portfolios, scheduling a session and add-ons available at the a-la-carte menu.

2, Make note of the url where you want to use your headshot or portrait images. Decide on what photography plan you want (what type of session), what deliverables you want and when you need them, when you would like to schedule the two hour photoshoot and the 20 minute consulation call.

3. Send this information in an email to requesting a 20 minute consultation phone call back to discuss your request. Don’t forget to include your full contact information (name, address, phone number, url, and best time to call ).

Janice serves the greater Chicago area and surrounding counties (DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Grundy, etc.) at the in-house Lombard, IL portrait and headshot studio. Please know Janice D Nelson Photography does not sell editing rights, so if you need a black and white image, for example, be sure to request it – or if you are not sure what you need – do ask and provide the web address to help determine any special usage licensing needs.

Note: The Lombard, Illinois in-house studio is not a walk-in facility. All bookings require an appointment, and photoshoots require a prepaid booking fee of $100 (which normally is deducted from the total amount due the day of the photoshoot). An initial 20 minute consultation call is held to reach agreement on session requirements, deliverables, background preferences, lighting needs, usage rights, and a photoshoot date and time. Typically sessions begin at 11 a.m. CST and are scheduled a minimum of three days in advance. The consultation call will also review getting ready instructions, workflow, the number of people coming to the in-house studio, and the number of people in the images. Booking fees become non-refundable for all cancellations, no-shows, and last minute rescheduling requests that do not provide a minimum of 48 business hours advance notice. Sessions can be scheduled any day of the week, excluding holidays. Additional fees are charged for rush or holiday work.
