Scheduling a professional music portraits session is easy!
Your session is booked!
After you’ve booked a music portrait session with Austin music photographer Nate Hall, we will arrange a pre-shoot consultation to discuss the type of photos you need, how you plan to use them, what music/instruments you play, what look/style you like, background/location options, wardrobe and prop suggestions, and to answer any questions you may have. We’ll also want to check out your music to get to know you and your sound better. We will continue to be available by phone and email leading up to your photo shoot. These portrait tips will also help you prepare.
The day of your session, you will arrive at our photo studio or a pre-chosen location at the scheduled time. We’ll have everything set up and ready to go. After you make any final clothing or hair/makeup adjustments, we’ll spend a few minutes chatting as we take some test shots, giving you a chance to warm up and get comfortable in front of the camera. Then we’ll move into a few basic poses as we explore the lighting and angles to see what looks best on you. We’ll continue to guide you through a series of poses and expressions, encouraging natural movements and smiles, and incorporating your instrument(s) into some of the shots. Depending on how many looks you booked (i.e., outfit changes), we’ll reset the lights and background as needed. As we shoot, we’ll occasionally pause to give you a break and invite you to look at some of the images, so we can get a feel for what you’re liking. Once we’re confident there are lots of good shots for you to choose from, it’s a wrap!
Within 1-2 business days, we will send you a private online proofing gallery with the best images from your shoot, from which you’ll make your final image selections. After you’ve made your selections, we’ll professionally edit those images and then deliver them to you as high-res and web-size JPEGs along with a print/web release. If you’ve given us exact file specs, we’ll optimize and deliver the images accordingly. Otherwise, we deliver standard files sizes that work for most print and web uses. If you need prints, we offer an array of high-quality, eco-friendly print options.
