As it suggests, an Individual Sessions is Photographic Package for one person. They are broken down in several ways (which you will see below). For students, I am happy to offer a half session. It is also possible to split a session between friends and/or students.
LinkedIn and Social Media Sessions
This is a two-hour Individual Session, is where we only concentrate on headshots aimed at your profile. These pictures are very much about the message you are trying to convey on social media.
For information on LinkedIn Headshots visit Linkedin Headshots Berlin. Here you will get a full overview of what your professional image is all about and how you should go about creating it.
You will find that I’m neither the most expensive nor the cheapest photographer. I pride myself on giving you the best experience possible during your session and want to make it fun and relaxing.
When you select a photographer, you should find out what they are about and if you feel you will be comfortable with them. I guarantee my work, and if you paid pro-rata to a Volkswagen mechanic, it would cost a great deal more!

Once your session is over, you will have between 200 – 300 and 100 – 150 for a half session. At this point, we’ll go through your shots and delete ones that you don’t like or want. This will reduce them down to 50 to 100 final shot list. After you have gone, I will check through your shots and make any further changes, before outputting them to colour and Black and white files, plus contact sheets should you want them. Once this is completed, I will send all of the pictures (zipped) to you via wetransfer.
If you want more images retouched than are included in the package, it is 50 € per shot/image.
‘Can you make me look like Claudia Schiffer/Jake Gyllenhaal?’
Believe it or not, the shot has to look like you. I can do wonders in Photoshop. Of course, I can get rid of the non-permanent blemish. But if you have a serious scar and I remove it, ‘the problem will still be there at your next interview, casting or audition. The main thing is to get the best representation of you and the character inside, and this I will do with the minimum amount of pressure.
Do you give student discounts?
Yes, if you’re a full-time student, I give a 20% discount.
N.B. Should you wish to meet for a chat over coffee to discuss what you want, I have no problem doing this. But this only applies to a 4-hour session.
If you want a make-up artist for your Individual Photographic Package, this can be arranged, but at an extra cost.
How should I prepare for the shoot?
Don’t get drunk the night before and have a good night’s sleep. Don’t cut your hair the day before – do it a week or two in advance to allow your hair to settle. Unless you’re bald, which simplifies the matter somewhat.
Bring a selection of tops (medium to dark) that have texture but not extreme patterns. Simplicity is the key, and a V line is always effective (fussy fluffy collars are not). Don’t forget to bring a selection of trousers or skirts if you want medium to three-quarter shots, but all in all, if you are unsure, bring it along. I have produced a TIP SHEET that you can download.
If you have any questions about Individual Photographic Packages feel free to ask, I want you to be happy that is the main object of the exercise. If you are happy… Your shots will be good.
