If this is the first time you’re considering professional headshots, you might be shocked by the price tag. Before you decide that booking a session isn’t right for you, here is what you should consider about headshot pricing.
- Experience Requires Time and Money
Experienced headshot photographers have spent years honing their skills, which is why they can produce the professional and creative images they do. Headshots aren’t just profiled photos either – they need to look professional and tell a story.
Professional photographers also need the right equipment to assist clients. From cameras and lenses to reflectors and flashes, a lot of equipment comes in handy for these types of sessions. The initial purchase cost is not only, but there are repairs, maintenance, and insurance costs to account for.
- Commuting is Sometimes Required
Usually, photographers will need to travel to a specific location for a shoot, which also costs money. Most headshot photography costs include travel, which can drive up the total price. Many people forget to consider the time it takes a photographer to set everything up and answer any questions you might have.
- Retouching Takes Time
Are they impressed with the headshots you’ve seen in a photographer’s portfolio? Unfortunately, they didn’t get that way naturally. Some retouching is always required after a photo session, which requires time and effort. Photographers consider this time too when building a quotation.
Headshot sessions are a worthwhile investment if you are serious about your brand. What’s more, you only need to update your headshots every 2 – 3 years. And if your budget is tight, there is always the option of scheduling a mini headshot session – you do end up with fewer photos, but the results are still fantastic and won’t cost as much.
