Headshot Retouching

With headshot retouching, the goal is to present you in the most amazing and spectacular way, but also remain completely accurate to what you really look like in person.  There is nothing worse than getting called in for an audition and frustrating the casting director or agent because you look nothing like your headshot.  We will use professional headshot retouching techniques that stay true to who you are but make your photo showcase ready.

Retouching Prices

All Hot Headshot photo shoots include complimentary headshot retouching.  The number of included retouched images will vary depending on your photo package.  For more details on packages click here.

If you’d like additional images retouched or if you shot with another photographer or if you’re a photographer that needs a professional headshot retoucher, headshot retouching starts at just $25 per image and includes everything you need to get your images out to the people that matter.

Each Retouched Image Includes:

  • 1 High Resolution 8×10 with your name and border for printing. Please make sure to have whatever lab you use show you a proof print before making your final mass run.
  • 1 High Resolution full sized image for other printing purposes
  • 1 900×600 Pixel Web Resolution image for LA Casting, IMDb, your web site, blog, etc.
  • 1 750×500 Pixel Web Resolution image for Now Casting
  • 1 700×500 Pixel Web Resolution image cropped for Actors Access
  • 1 600×400 Pixel Web Resolution image for Facebook, e-mailing or for use when the other sizes are too big

Headshot Retouching Process

Every image from the shoot is numbered.  Once you have selected the images you would like retouched, e-mail us the file number.  You do not need to send us the image.  We already have the RAW files on file.  Please let us know if there is anything specific you want addressed in the retouching.  If there’s no extra special retouching required, we’ll work our normal wizardry casting spells and potions to work our magic to make your already awesome image look even more awesome…er.

Choose one of the borders below and let us know which one you want for your 8×10 print image.  Note that the web resolution images that you’ll use online for the various casting web sites will not have a name and border.

Normal turn-around time is 2-3 business days on retouching.  That could vary greatly depending on workload.  If you need it faster than that, let us know ahead of time.

That’s it.  Pretty simple.
