FAQs for a Portrait Photographer

It’s not every day that you get your portrait photography taken.  So, it’s not surprising you may have some questions about what to expect.   

Following are some of the more common questions we get asked in relation to a portrait photoshoot with their answers.  If there’s anything we’ve missed, please drop us a line here.

Portrait vs. headshot photograph

Technically, a headshot is a type of portrait.   Even though these two photograph styles are often used interchangeably.  However, there are a few key differences.  Knowing these can help communicate exactly what it is you need with your photographer so they understand the style of photography to shoot.

Headshots are about capturing a professional image, whereas portraits are about capturing the character of the person. They’re the real you, the personal you, and bring out your true character is exactly what Joseph does best!

A key difference between the two styles can also be found in where the shot is going to be used.  Headshots are typically used for business purposes – eg by corporate management teams needing to show themselves in a professional light on social media or in corporate publications.  Or, by actors and models, used to give to casting directors and or as part of a portfolio that is used as a type of resume.

Portraits, on the other hand, tell more of a story about the subject.  They may be used in editorial or marketing materials, in blog posts, or for personal use such as to hang on the family wall at home, give to loved ones and/or keep for memories sake.

A headshot will typically capture the face from the shoulders up.  The subject is normally looking directly at the camera and the shot is evenly lit.  The focus is on the face in the photograph. 

Whereas Portrait photography is normally concerned with showing more of the character of the subject.   Portrait photography conveys emotion, personality and style of the subject being photographed.  The photograph itself can be styled, lit, and cropped in more creative ways, and the subject may be looking at the camera or away.

Time required for a portrait photoshoot

This depends on how many shots you would like to take, the location and the model / person or people being photographed, among other things.  Typically, however, a 2 hour photoshoot is adequate to create 5- 6 high quality, unique images.

Can I choose the location of my portrait photograph?

Yes, the location is up to you.  Joseph can travel across NSW and, in some instances, across Australia for your portrait photoshoot.  Joseph can also help find and arrange booking of the ideal location for your shoot should you require assistance.

I don’t know how I’d like my portraits styled, can you help?

This is Joseph’s forte.  Joseph takes the time to get to know his clients and his models prior to the shoot as well as to understand what it is they are hoping to achieve from the final portrait images.  He then lets his love for storytelling and creative flare loose to plan and shoot stunningly styled portrait photographs.    Joseph will lead everything from the location and backdrops to the outfits and props and lighting, should you need.

Do you provide hair and make up services for your portraits?

We have a number of partner hair and make up artists we can recommend to you or book for you.  They can come to your home before the photoshoot or style your hair and makeup on location before the portrait shoot begins.   Simply let us know what you would like us to arrange and we can include this in your portrait photoshoot quote.

Do you shoot portraits outside of Sydney?

Joseph does and has travelled outside of Sydney and NSW for his portrait photography.  Just let him know where you require the shoot by getting in contact here.  Any additional travel fees incurred (depending on the location) will be included in the quoted cost for your portrait photoshoot.
