There are headshots and then...there are Christian Webb headshots!
You can find cheaper. You can find decent. But that's not how you see your career is it?
Instantly recognizable. The absolute, undeniable, distinct look of a Christian Webb headshot. It's unmistakable. Unmatched quality....detail for detail. It's what sets the shots apart from anything out there and it's what gets actors looked at, called in and continually booking. And it's what has kept him consistently endorsed by agencies, casting directors and managers in multiple markets including NYC, ATL and L.A. Christian has not only built a solid reputation as one of the top photographers but also one of the leading authorities when it comes to actors and their headshots. Providing guidance, mentoring and workshops to both actors and other photographers, he works to make sure actors get the shots they need for success.
Capturing the essence of an actor and making them stand out! There's no other way to do it!
We look forward to doing what we always do and what we've done for so many in Atlanta over the past few years! See you soon!
OCTOBER 2018 SESSION DEPOSITS
Session Rate: $400
($200 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT REQUIRED TO BOOK SESSION.)
1 HOUR SESSION / 3 LOOKS
Regarding looks: I always tell clients to bring more than less when it comes to clothing changes. (tops only.) Sometimes we can move right along and shoot 2, 3, 4, 5 different looks and change things up a bit. It's no biggie for me and I'm not charging by the look really. We shoot, get what we have to get! At a minimum though, you'll change 3 times. (keep in mind, putting on a jacket, taking a jacket off or something like that doesn't count as a whole new look really! I'm flexible and it's more about getting what you need and doing it right!
We don't do the low end, factory approach thing here people!
Combination of Studio Lighting & Natural LIght!
Oh, and did I mention...we play a lot of music during sessions! So make sure to get your playlist prepared and even send it to me prior to your shoot! Music makes the mood! It changes everything! I have premium TIDAL and SPOTIFY accounts and can play just about ANY and EVERYTHING you can think of! (I'm good with anything from Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, U2, Coldplay, The Cure to Jay-Z, Kanye, Nas, Future, Kendrick Lamar, Fetty, Outkast, Beyoncé, Rihanna to Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk...etc, etc, etc!

MAKE UP for HEADSHOTS!
This is Naja. Naja is my make up artist in Atlanta. She's a bonafide, certified, legit, reputable and professional MUA with over 10 years experience in the business. She handles make up for my sessions and knows exactly what's needed for great headshot makeup. Naja's fee is separate from my session fee. The make up, like your overall headshot is an investment. A professional headshot has multiple layers - your make up/how you look is one of them. Headshot make up is very specific and not the same as beauty or fashion makeup. When investing in a Christian Webb headshot, you're not just investing in one person....you're investing in a team of professionals dedicated to providing the very best to serve you and your career. If you're not investing in your career, you should probably....rethink your career.
MUA FEE: WOMEN - $100 MEN $50

I can't stress enough how important it is to KNOW the difference between a decent or good headshot and a GREAT headshot! (Oh, and it's not just about using blue for a background!) It's equally as important to really know the difference between amateur photography and professional photography. When you're starting off, perhaps you don't know better, perhaps you don't have the money, or perhaps you really don't know why it's important to invest in professional headshots. Take your time. Ask around. Learn.
There are high quality, very professional headshots and then there are lower quality, barely passable headshots. You have to decide which type you want and where you see your career. While it's true that it's all subjective, at the end of the day, true professionals and qualified industry people know the difference.
You can watch my video here on SELECTING YOUR HEADSHOTS and the difference between OPINIONS and QUALIFIED OPINIONS.
AS MOST OF MY WORK REVOLVES AROUND CREATING IMAGES THAT HAVE A FILM/TV FEEL & LOOK, I PREFER TO SHOOT LANDSCAPE ORIENTATION....AS IF LOOKING AT A TELEVISION SCREEN OR MOVIE SCREEN. I SOMETIMES HEAR ACTORS CONCERNED WITH WHETHER HEADSHOTS ARE PORTRAIT OR LANDSCAPE ORIENTATION. I SHOOT BOTH WAYS DURING MY SESSIONS SO AS TO HAVE THE OPTION!
I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME MARKETS STILL PREFER SHOTS IN PORTRAIT ORIENTATION. ALSO, FOR ONLINE GALLERY PURPOSES, THUMBNAIL VERSIONS OR 1:1 SQUARE RATIOS MAY BE PREFERRED. REST ASSURED, MY IMAGES WHEN CROPPED, WORK ABSOLUTELY FINE FOR ALL PURPOSES. BELOW IS QUICK SAMPLE:
A WORD ABOUT RETOUCHING:
I take my retouching as serious as the actual shoot. I'm a professional retoucher and my job is to clean up the image but keep my clients looking natural. A CLEAN, POLISHED, WELL DONE IMAGE SEPARATES THE AVERAGE HEADSHOT FROM THE TRULY PROFESSIONAL and can make a major difference in whether or not it stands out!
ATL ACTORS - "JUST SAY NO" to bad skin retouching and poor color correction! You can half ass this stuff for but so long. Let me just say, casting notices this stuff and they KNOW just from looking at your $99 headshot that you do NOT take yourself serious. It's just bad business people to have a headshot with bad color, inconsistencies in skin tone and over smoothed, blotchiness!
