Photo Shoot Packages

Professional photos for any purpose.

Zero Dean Photography photo shoot packages are for anyone in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, or Las Vegas desiring more than just headshots.

Each photo shoot is designed to meet your specific goals (including budget). Whether you’re a model seeking to build your portfolio or your just someone seeking to have professional photos taken for fun, these packages will meet your needs.

Although all photoshoot packages include headshots (if desired), if you are specifically seeking portraits or headshots, please refer to my headshots packages for actors & models (and anyone else who simply needs a headshot).

Zero Dean Photography Photo Shoot Packages:

  • Photo Shoot

  • All shoots are scheduled to fit within specific time slots. This is the approximate amount of *time allocated to shooting.

    *Add approximately 30 minutes for appt schedule

    Approximate shooting time
  • Many photographers will limit the number of photos they take to a number that corresponds to the film equivalent (usually 12, 24, or 36). This means that a photo shoot with some photographers may only yield about 36 images for you to choose from. Zero Dean provides an unlimited number of photos during his shoots. The longer your photo shoot, the more photos you'll have taken. The more photos you have taken, the more options you'll have when it comes to picking your favorite photos.Estimated # of headshots to choose from
  • Photo proofs are scaled-down low-resolution and untouched images.

    After your photo shoot, you will be mailed a CD of "photo proofs". The purpose of this proofs CD is to allow you to easily browse through all the photos from your shoot to pick out your favorites.

    Once your favorites have been selected, they are processed to make them look as perfect as possible.

    Photo proofs are not intended to be used for any purpose other than as proofs.

    Number of proofs provided on CD
  • With each shoot, Zero provides a select number of Hi-Res images that have been optimized in a way to make the image as perfect as possible (removal of blemishes, etc). Additional hi-res & optimized photos may also be purchased in addition to the number provided with each photo shoot package.

    Your CD of proofs will contain scaled-down low-resolution and untouched images from your photo shoot, from which you can select images you wish to have processed. Photo proofs are not intended to be used for any purpose other than as proofs.

    Digital negatives *processed & included
  • In order to make your photos look as perfect as possible, Zero will optimize or process a select number of photos.

    Optimizations may include: removal of blemishes, scars, tattoos, and other "imperfections", image color and level adjustments, and image cropping and scaling.

    As a professional digital imaging expert with over 16 years of experience, Zero Dean has the skills necessary to provide you with professional results.

    Retouching & image adjustments included
  • Changing your "look" & "style" during a photo shoot typically involves changing your hair and/or make-up.

    One of the key benefits to changing your look or style during a shoot is that it significantly helps you avoid looking like all of your photographs were taken on the same day.

    Most photographers will limit the number of looks you can do during a photo shoot.

    Looks & styles allowed
  • Wardrobe changes are an opportunity for you to change the clothes you are wearing.

    Wardrobe changes can be very important to a photo shoot because they help you alter your look so that all of your photos do not appear as if they were taken during a single photo shoot.

    Wardrobe changes allowed
  • Zero Dean is a digital imaging expert with over 16 years professional experience and will work with you to alter and enhance your selected portraits to the way you want them. This includes providing photos in sepia tones, black & white, cropping, zooming, changing colors, removing undesirable elements (blemishes, scars, etc), adding minor special fx, and more.

    Basic editing & enhancements
  • Each additional retouched digital negative
  • Make-up artists are not included. Read about this below this table.

    I will gladly provide you with assistance in hiring someone and can provide you with a list of make-up and/or hair stylists if you desire it.

Coaching & Direction:

I provide coaching & direction with every photo shoot to help you get the best photos possible. I specialize in getting great shots (and portraits) from subjects who are shy or generally don’t like to have their photo taken or new models just beginning to build their modeling portfolios.

Make-Up Artists, Hair Stylists, Fashion Stylists:

Are not included in my photo shoot packages. As much as I love and value working with make-up artists, I prefer to work with them on a shoot-by-shoot basis so that my clients will be able to take full advantage of their services as necessary.

Many photographers earn extra money by recommending make-up artists or stylists from which they receive a commission or referral bonus. I don’t.

I prefer to allow my customers to work with those they are comfortable hiring and who can meet their specific needs & budget. It also means that I have no incentive to recommend a make-up artist to you unless I truly feel you will be able to take full advantage of one or that it will significantly benefit you and your photos.

However, I will gladly provide you with assistance in hiring someone and can provide you with a list of make-up and/or hair stylists if you desire it.

When hiring a make-up artist, consider this:

In order to take full advantage of a make-up artist and to get the most out of your scheduled shoot time, I recommend that you arrange to meet with the make-up artist (and/or hair stylist) at your home 30-60 minutes in advance of your appointment and have your initial application of make-up done before you arrive at your shoot. This will minimize the amount of make-up done on location and will also allow us to begin shooting sooner.

When shooting on location, if you wish to have your make-up done in advance of your appointment, but also altered during your shoot, it is important that you hire someone who is able to both meet you in advance of your shoot (either at your place or theirs) and who is then also available to work with you at the shoot location.
