THE SESSION : WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Hi, my name is Robin Podder. I normally shoot Headshots in my home studio. It's a single family home that I own with my wife. I am living in this house since 1983. I have a son and a daughter who live close by.
I would set up my portable studio in our downstairs living room.
I have a separate table with wall mirror for your make up.
There is a full bathroom adjacent to it. If you need to freshen up, there will be towels.
I can provide you with a cup of coffee or tea of your choice.
As I said, if you want me to hire a make up artiste, I can do so.
After we settle down, we will go through the shooting process, Initially we will do a series of test shots. I will shoot as many shots as I need, as many set ups and dress changes. I do not impose any limit. If you have a time limit, please let me know. My goal is to be a part of your successful journey.
