Every job is different from editorial look books to commercial catalogs to art directed product shoots. Due to the varying nature of each project, I prefer to set up a call/meeting prior to discuss all details. This allows me to better serve and provides both parties the ability to gain a clear intention on the type of shots, expectations, production value that you will need for the best high quality images. Everything to me must be in alignment.

Here you will find Samantha Levi's Personal collection of her career:
'Personal and Spec Projects light my creative juices and give energy to what I love to create. I have learned to set time aside to go within and create for myself. I go with the flow and what catches my eye. I am an artist at the end of the day and my camera is a tool, a digital paintbrush.'
A headshot is great..for your Linkedin profile to your about page to your email signature. But I’ll bet your business goals include making money and growing your clientele. I’ll also wager that your marketing goals include converting your audience into customers. The demands on business owners today include distributing engaging content via websites, blogs, newsletters and social media. A headshot alone won’t cut it. A traditional headshot won’t communicate your message. An outdated headshot (don’t get me started lol)…well that might just make your brand irrelevant.
Personal branding photography provides you with engaging content to convert your audience to customers. It takes a variety of engaging content to be successful — from the big picture to the little details. Visual content (photos) tell your brand story and hook your audience giving your written message the opportunity to guide them toward becoming a customer.
The process ranges from 1-4 weeks and really depends on your deadline for deliverables vs when you inquire vs amount of production needed to execute your session. I always recommend as soon as you are ready to invest, contact me and start the on-boarding process so you give yourself plenty of time for marketing!
Prices are determined by overall shoot needs and requests. We can dream big and scale down to fit your budget. Samantha Levi has worked with shoe string budgets to six-figure ad campaigns, but you really don't know what is possible until you ask :) So I'd go ahead and just ask.
Yes! Your photos will look like you on your very best day. I retouch each image with a gentle hand, smoothing out blemishes, removing any dark shadows, or fixing unwanted folds in clothing. Overall retouching is to enhance what is already there and remove distracting elements. One should not look at a photo and SEE its retouched, it takes away from the emotional integrity of the photos.
Let's discuss your needs and project goals and get to know each other. I will share my work and approach further to bring ideas and inspiration to the table so we can further produce and alchemize the shoot of your dreams.
This is my FAVORITE part where the play and magic happen! We will take action on everything spoken, allowing our words to anchor into this physical realm to co-create together.
After your session we begin to embody the importance of everything we have accomplished - to make meaning and further emotional connection to our images created. Post production and final delivery so the world can see the masterpiece created.
