Adding a Location To Your Headshot
Thank you for visiting Orange County Headshots regarding your company’s Headshots OnLocation. Adding a location to your headshot could not be any easier. Plus, if you have any questions, we’re to help you every step of the way.
Though a fully-equipped professional portrait studio is ideal for headshots sessions, we realize it’s not always practical to convene at our location. This is why, in 1981, we began offering the option of adding headshots on-location for our commercial and theatrical headshots.
BRIEF WORD ABOUT COST
The typical cost of adding a location to your headshot is simply the Location Fee ($185). This is relevant for either those who desire Natural lighting or whose headshot needs are for ten or more people.
For those who want Studio Lighting (which requires the assembly of our portrait studio at your location), and also have headshot needs for ten or more people, the total on-location cost is still just $185. The Studio Assembly Fee of $350 is waived when scheduling at least ten headshot sessions.
The only scenario where the Studio Assembly Fee of $350 is required is when the number of headshots requested is less than ten people.
With that in mind, let’s now segue into the specifics of adding a location to your headshot. Here you go.
THE 3 ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS TO ADDING HEADSHOTS ON-LOCATION
When scheduling Headshots OnLocation, there are 3 Essential Components that need to be considered: 1. Location; 2. Background; 3. Lighting.
1. LOCATION • $185
ALL locations within Orange County are priced the same and include Travel and Time expense.
A. INSIDE Orange County – $185
B. OUTSIDE Orange County: Please contact us for a personalized quotation.
C. EXTENDED Travel: Please contact us for personalized quotation.
2. BACKGROUND • $0
By its very nature, Headshots OnLocation are divided into TWO Background Choices: 1. your Facility or Venue (interior or exterior); or 2. one of our professional Backdrops. All we ask of you is to inform us which background you are considering. Both are offered at no charge:
A. FACILITY/VENUE: encompasses either your facility’s interiors (walls & windows) or its surrounding exteriors (building & landscapes).
B. BACKDROP: entails assembling a 6′ wide professional backdrop within your facility location, which is included at NO CHARGE with ANY of our lighting options.
3. LIGHTING • $0 or $350
Before you can tabulate a complete price for your adding a location to your headshot, you will need to decide on the quality of lighting that best meets your needs. We offer 2 possible lighting scenarios:
A. NATURAL Lighting
• Available Light with On-Camera Flash, ideal for a contemporary, casual headshot look.
$0 – No Minimum Headshots
B. STUDIO Lighting
• Includes full Studio Assembly with 3 Strobes and Backdrop, for a traditional headshot feel.
$0 with a 10 Headshot Minimum. Each individual person photographed counts as one headshot.
$350 with Less than 10 Headshot Minimum.
When opting for us to assemble STUDIO LIGHTING at your location with BACKDROP, an empty space of 10×12 feet with an 8-10 foot ceiling is preferred.
