Parking:
Unfortunately our building has no guest parking. There is however, free street parking in the area on Commercial Dr, Powell St and Pandora St.

What to bring:
Bring at least 6 or 7 wardrobe options. Avoid patterns, logos, designs and white. Simple fitted solids are best. Bring at least one black option and some colours. Tops/shirts/jackets/dresses are mainly what we’ll need. Less pants/skirt options are needed as we won’t be framing bellow the waist too often.

Hair and makeup:
if you’ve booked our hair/makeup artist, just show up with clean/dry hair and a fresh face and we’ll take care of the rest. If you’re doing your own hair and makeup, be sure to bring a brush and any product you use for touch-ups (this applies mainly to women with long hair).

Timing:
Generally speaking men’s headshot sessions take about 2 hours and women’s usually about 3 (due to hair and makeup applications). Be sure to leave enough time in your day to accommodate this.

Bringing guests to your shoot:
It is generally preferred that clients come on their own and don’t bring guests (for the sake of focus and keeping distractions minimal). Please contact us in advance if you plan to bring someone along. This policy is of course only applicable to those clients over 18.

Payment methods:
We can take cash, debit or credit card (no personal cheques please). Payment is due at the end of the session.

Turn-around:
Your shoot proofs (all the images) will be sent to you via Dropbox within 72 hours (weekdays) of our session.

Ordering edits/retouches:
Simply send us the JPEG number or send the file you want edited as an attachment to: info@shimonphoto.com. Please allow up to a week for the editing/ retouching to be completed. On completion the edited files will be sent to you and also filed under your name at Rocket Repro (www.rocketrepro.com) in Gastown (403 West Cordova St.) where you can order prints.

Ordering additional edits/retouches:
If you wish to order more edits than are included in your headshot package, you may for an additional at $25 per image (or 5 for $100).
