This is a headshot and portrait photography service like no other - you will say this yourself after the fact. My work doesn't start and end with clicking photos. It starts by helping you prepare to groom, select your attire and ends when I retouch and give you the headshots / portraits you are looking for. This is what you can expect:

  • Guidance in preparing for the shoot: I will to work with you and provide consultation about the type of headshot or portrait you need, what to wear, grooming, makeup, location of the shoot or just about anything to help you prepare for the shoot. If you need a makeup person, I can arrange that for you.

  • Studio at your doorstep:  Shoot at your office or home or outdoor, as per your your choice and convenience. I bring studio to you, complete with professional lighting (no shortcuts) and backdrop with color choices. With a studio right in your living room, you can change your attire with peace of mind, pose without being self conscious. 

  • Posing: I will coach you and get comfortable in front of the camera to get the best of you in your headshot / portrait.

  • Shoot: I typically take dozens of photos till I get the photos that makes you say 'Yes!'. I don't mind the time and effort I spend in getting you the best possible photo, I am on your side.

  • Selection: I will help you pick and choose those best shots that truly represent YOU (from dozens).

  • Editing: I discuss the editing plan with you and tailor it to suit your tastes and preferences so that you get what you are looking for.

  • Delivery: of photos in any format you want: for your website, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp...you name it. I will give you photos that just fit the size, quality, resolution, format requirements of these platforms.

This is as end to end a service as it gets.

Why do I go that extra mile? Photography for me is a labor of love, not a means of earning money or of pleasing people or of becoming famous. All I care for is how good a portrait / headshot I can give you and I believe this is the best possible way to achieve that.

Terms & Conditions

Bargains

  • 10k Portrait Photography processes. pricing, charges and the whole service is designed in such a way that there's no need or scope for any kind of bargaining or negotiations before, during, or after the shoot.

  • Bargaining includes asking for discounts, free photos, raw images, photo dumps, free express delivery, airbrushing, photo manipulation, skin color lightening or changing, slimming in Photoshop.

  • I believe anything given away free is never actually free and the cost of which is already included (without your knowledge) in the pricing structure. If you don't ask for it, you lose.

  • But that's not how it is with 10k Portraits. 10k Portraits is a honest and transparent Headshot and Portrait Photography service. Pricing is transparent and nothing is hidden so that you don't have to worry about missing out on any freebies. Whatever is included (mentioned above clearly) will be given to you, whether you ask for it or not.

Payments & Delivery Guarantee

  • Full payment is to be made before delivery. I am unable to offer cash on delivery option. 

  • If the full payment is not realized on the day of the shoot, the standard 7 day delivery guarantee is not applicable. The delivery date will be adjusted as date of full payment + 7 days

Change of Mind

  • Any change in photo selection after 24 hrs. from the date and time of photo selection is considered as additional photos and charged accordingly. You will get the photos you selected in the beginning as well as the new photos you selected - both will be duly edited.

Studio

  • ​10k Portrait's on location studio setup is a lot better than the traditional studios in many ways yet there are no additional charges for the same. However if you still want to visit the so called photo studio, please pay the studio rental charges (this is a 3rd party service and they charge us too) -  prices vary - let me know beforehand.​

 

Rescheduling

  • Rescheduling shoots causes disruption to other customers' plans hence I discourage it. Once scheduled, a shoot date and time is cast in stone. However I understand that life is not entirely predictable and hence allow one reschedule for free.

  • Repeat rescheduling can cause serious disruption to other customers' plans and to my reputation and hence to encourage you to stick to the original schedule and avoid rescheduling on a whim, I chare an additional ₹ 1,500 per reschedule from the 2nd reschedule onwards. All reschedules are subject to availability of free slots. 

  • I would request you to plan better and not to reschedule if that's possible and yes avoid paying anything extra! 

Fair Use Policy

 

* Shoot Duration: The given shoot duration for each package is quite generous and adequate - you'd rarely need more time than that. However for any reason (like extended waiting times or other eventualities) if the shoot gets extended, I charge ₹ 750 per hour as a small reimbursement for my time. I would encourage you to plan better and avoid paying these charges - it is a win, win for both of us.

* The number of looks, poses, attires, backgrounds, and the shoot duration are flexible are to be proportional to the number of portraits you need - this is in the interest of time and effort, both yours and mine.

 

Fair, judicious use is encouraged. I understand honest mistakes happen and I overlook them. I am also intensely aware of service abuse and misuse which I discourage.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How often should I change my professional photos?
    If your online portrait is noticeably different from how you really look, it's time for a new one. If you change your hairstyle, got a new pair of glasses, or gained or lost weight or if your current headshot is more than 1 year old, it is a good time for an updated headshot. We change and age visibly in one year and significantly in two years.
  • What's best to wear for my professional photoshoot?
    Choosing a suit in neutral colors such as navy blue, charcoal gray, or black with a crisp white or striped shirt is the ideal choice. Avoid bold patterns and bright colors that can be too distracting in the photograph. Before your headshot session, I will provide you with a detailed guide and during the session, I will help you decide the right attire that brings out your best.
  • What should I not wear for my professional photo shoot?
    This is an easier question to answer. Creased, crumpled clothes are not to be worn at all. Old shirts and trousers which were washed several times are supposed to be donated to the less privileged. Shirts with collars that collapse...either get them fixed (yes that's possible) or donate them.
  • Should I smile in my business portrait?
    There are no rules, you can smile, or not smile, or just have a hint of a smile. In many cases, a well-executed smile can convey competence, trustworthiness, approachability, confidence, and likeability. During the headshot session, I will help you decide how much of a smile is right for you keeping your needs, branding objectives in mind. If you choose to smile, I will coach in getting a great smile that brings out the best in you. With a minimum of three edited photos included in my headshot photography session, you have the scope to try a range of expressions, and you can use whichever one is the most appropriate for your personal brand. For instance, a shot with a more serious expression might suit a webpage detailing the services you offer, while a more cheerful look might fit better on an 'about' page, where you’ll want to show a bit more of your personality.
  • My teeth are not too good, should I smile wide in my professional photo shoot?
    The question is what you like, what you are comfortable with not what you think how others are going to judge you. Good or not good are just our opinions and they are inherently relative. If you are not comfortable with your teeth showing in your headshot, you may avoid smiling or you may smile enough without revealing your teeth. A headshot is you, it is about you not about the others.
  • I am not photogenic/ I don’t look like a model. In fact, I strongly dislike my ________(nose/chin/any thing else) and am worried it will ruin my pictures. Is there a way around this?
    You don't need to look like a model to get photos taken. We can work around anything about your appearance that you’re uncomfortable with. If you have something specific that you’re self conscious about, (as well as anything about your body that you love and want to focus on!) let’s chat about it before your session gets started so I can be aware of it as I shoot. I guarantee zero judgments.
  • I hate having my photo taken. How will you make me look good?
    I will try and make you comfortable and get into the right mindset for the shoot. However you will have to trust me and trust my process, take my suggestions, cues and work with me, cooperate with me. For any reason you are unable to do so, the outcome may not be what you are looking for. Please note that there are no magic tricks to make people look good unless they are willing and open to suggestions.
  • Should I wear jewelry for my professional photo shoot?
    You may! There are no rules. It is a matter of what is appropriate for your specific needs. For corporate headshots, jewelry should be minimal so as not to cause distraction. If your needs are different, you are the best judge as to what to do.
  • Should I put on makeup for my professional photo shoot?
    Yes but please keep it minimal for corporate headshots. For formal headshots, please avoid eye shades or anything overboard.
  • Should I wear my glasses for my professional photo shoot?
    If you normally wear glasses, yes. Keep the cleaning eyeglass cloth handy however.
  • Is there anything else I should do to prepare for my professional photo shoot?
    Make sure to get a good night’s sleep before your shoot - also minimize alcohol to two drinks in the evening before the shoot - but feel free to fulfill the shortfall in the quota after the shoot. Drink plenty of water to make you feel and look your best! Also make sure you iron or steam the clothing choices you are going to wear into your session and decide on how you will style your hair and/or makeup. Please go through the preparation tips I share with you when you book a session.
