During the Shoot

What happens at a shoot?

You arrive, have a seat, and we chat. We want to know who you are as an actor and as a human. What are your career goals? What are your headshot goals? We'll go through your suitcase and explore looks together. We hang and steam your clothes, have coffee, tea, (wine?), and get to work.

Before we start shooting, you'll have a mini "headshot lesson" with Curtis- just a few tips and tricks get you started that will help along the way. Then we'll cycle through your looks in several different setups: both studio and natural light (weather-permitting.)

It's stress free, low pressure, easy and always fun.

Do you do my hair and makeup?

We offer Full Makeup Application & Touch-ups for $150. We HIGHLY recommend this option for our Adult and Teen Ladies. Our style is very natural and our products are all camera-friendly.

We ask all our clients to arrive with their hair styled as they would for an audition. We have a partnership with a great local salon called Blow + Arrow, where Curtis & Cort clients receive a discount on Blow-Out Services. They're just a short walk or Uber from our studio.

Will you direct me in front of the camera?

YES. Definitely. I will never, ever leave you hanging. There's nothing worse than the sound of CLICK, CLICK, CLICK...SILENCE. We'll keep you engaged, interacting, and connecting. Hailing from a dance background, I direct first from the physical. Then based on composition, lighting, background, clothing, vibe, etc.- I'll get super specific about how that shot wants to feel in expression.
