Studio Headshot Pricing



All prices are inclusive of GST


Session Fee: $99.00


The fee covers the use of the studio and the photographer's time. It also includes any phone or in-person planning sessions in regards to wardrobe, makeup, overall style and how you want to be visually perceived by your clients or customers.

Also included are wardrobe changes/looks should you wish to have a variety of photos so you can market to various audiences.

In addition, we will show you your photos on the day so you can select them then and there to speed up the turnaround time.

This fee covers as many people as you need to be photographed on the day.

** The session fee does not include any photographs.**


Cost per photograph: $115.00


Full commercial usage rights are included.


The photos are supplied in 3 formats:

  1. Full resolution.
  2. "Internet" resolution: Optimised for social media and the internet in general.
  3. Email signature resolution: Small size so emails are fast and do not take up space for the sender and the recipient.


Includes executive retouching (as opposed to basic editing) :

Removal of facial shine (particularly useful with men as they generally do not wear makeup), stray hairs, temporary skin blemishes (pimples shaving rash, flaky makeup), reduction of dark circles under eyes, realistic whitening of teeth and eyes, glare removal from glasses, braces removal, redness reduction (if you spent the weekend at the beach) skin smoothing/ wrinkle reduction and replacement of background to a solid colour if required.

It is like you went on TV and had stylists get you ready for broadcast.


Professional hair and makeup artist: $165.00

Completely optional but very useful for busy people or if you do not have a preferred one. We have 4 hair and makeup artists we collaborate with if you wish to have that really polished professional look in your photographs.


Examples of executive retouching



A typical example of executive retouching. Hair tidied up, skin blemishes removed, evening out of skin tone and shine and other details

My friend Rob, who owns Absolute IT. Like many people, he did not have time to prepare and needed a photo urgently. This is a more dramatic example of executive retouching that he wanted to be done. Glare removed from glasses shine removed from the skin, hair tidied up, skin blemishes removed, teeth lightened and the general toning and the background replaced with white.
