THE COMPLETE PICTURE
ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL
Our Headshot pricing is structured around the belief that One Size Does Not Fit All. Whereas the traditional package approach is beneficial for most, it is not for others. Therefore, we offer our clients the advantage of personalizing their package so that it best suits THEIR needs, not ours.
Keeping with our tradition of meeting the needs of every client, we offer our headshot Packages BOTH in FasTrak and Personalized options. Whereas our FasTrak Packages meet the requirements of the vast majority of our clients, we also offer Personalized Packages for those clients who have specialized needs.
Also, please rest assured knowing that whether you choose one of our FasTrak Packages, or opt to create a Personalized Package, our pricing is identical across all our options.
To discover how our One Size Does NOT Fit All pricing benefits you the most, we must first consider the three basic elements to the creation of ANY headshot:
2. Digital Image
Each of the three key elements offers choices which are designed to accommodate a wide range of needs. All headshot Package Pricing, therefore, is largely a function of preference and budget.
After familiarizing yourself with the headshot pricing options available, simply select the Session, Digital File and Retouching that you feel best meets your headshot needs.
If you’re not sure which purchase approach is best for you, we will be happy to discuss our options with you and help you define your headshot needs. CONTACT US
THE COMPLETE PICTURE to THE 3 ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS TO ANY HEADSHOT
Thank you for your interest in professional photography services of Orange County Headshots by Mark Jordan Photography. The following information is provided for those who desire to learn every detail of Headshot Packages.
Firstly, ALL headshots are comprised of three essential elements: session, digital file, and retouching. Whether you commission Mark Jordan to create your headshot or another portrait studio, every headshot embodies these three distinct ingredients:
1. Session; 2. Digital Files; 3. Retouching.
We offer headshot PACKAGES both with our FasTrak and Personalized options. Regardless of which approach you prefer, the pricing is exactly the same. FasTrak Packages are All-In-One, assembling the 3 Essential elements with the addition done for you. Personalized Packages are À La Carte, listing the pricing for each individual component, allowing you to choose what’s most relevant for you.
FasTrak Packages are ideal for those whose needs are simple – it provides a Single Session for one look, a digital WEB file, and ExPress retouching with upgrade options.
Personalized Packages are recommended for those who may need more than one look, multiple digital files, and possibly high-resolution digital files. Should you have specialized needs, we are more than happy to create a Personalized package just for you.
Following are DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS regarding the 3 Elements of any Headshot Packages. Along with the detailed descriptions of our FasTrak, All-In-One pricing, we’ve also included the À La Carte pricing for Personalized Packages. This way you are able to not only see how your All-In-One Package pricing was derived but can readily discern which approach, All-In-One or À La Carte is best to meet your headshots need.
Should you have any questions along the way, please know that no concern is too small.
We provide four basic levels of Headshot Session Coverage. Regardless of which coverage best meets your needs, Mark is your personal photographer for all four:
1. SINGLE $50
• By far our most preferred headshot session.

1. WEB: $75 • Ideal for web posting – by far our most popular.
• Web Resolution Digital File (72 ppi)
• Rights for unlimited posting on websites and social media.
• Meets the needs of 99.99% of our clients.
2. MRDF: $135
• Medium Resolution Digital File (150 ppi)
• In those instances where an HRDF is too much but a resolution greater than a Web file is needed.
• Unlimited Rights for business applications and social media sites.
3. HRDF: $195*
• High-Resolution Digital File (300 ppi)
• Ideal for brochures and promotional printing.
• Rights for business applications, i.e., brochures, business cards, etc.
• HRDF-PR: $350 – purchase rights for printing of photographs.
4. RAW: $195
• Raw, unprocessed digital image.
• Offered for design professionals who demand in-house production.
*NOTE: since the vast majority of digital needs are for Web use, an HRDF is needless and extravagant. However, in those rare instances where an HDRF is required (e.g. for brochures/printing/editorial), we are happy to forward the HRDF to any designated third party printer/designer at No Charge. As long as the HRDF is not in your possession, there is no charge for using it. In this instance, the only digital purchase needed is a Web File. This No Charge Provision offers unlimited, complimentary usage of your HRDF.
Your completed digital image will be emailed to you directly containing the traditional 5×7 dimension.
We also offer a wide range of Paper Photographs and will provide pricing upon request.
We offer FOUR (4) levels of Pre-Post Production – Retouching services. Each level is designed to accommodate a wide range of facial demands and the ultimate objectives of your headshot. Every face requires a degree of retouching.
If you’re not familiar with quality retouching and why it is so vital to the success of your headshot portraits, you will benefit from reading one of our blog posts, which is specifically written to answer your questions:
Retouching is actually a four pronged function of what refer to as PRIMP, of which actual “retouching” is just one facet. It’s the aesthetic modifications invested on your behalf during Preparation – Retouching – Image Manipulation and Postproduction. Creating your digital image may require all or a portion of PRIMPing. While all retouching levels include image preparation and post-production adjustments, other levels include either a lesser or more complex retouching and image manipulation.
Please keep in mind that appropriately applied retouching is not intended to alter one’s character. The goal is to render the face conversationally – that is as if sitting across from a friend in conversation (not examining every detail in a vanity mirror). We accomplish conversational retouching by softening/removing those elements people do not normally notice when engaged in a conversation, while bringing out, and lightly enhancing those attractive and striking features they generally do recognize.
All retouching levels include Mark Jordan’s proprietary photographic techniques, which incorporates large/soft studio lighting and post-production Raw file preparation.
1. ExPress: $0 – Standard: primary focus is on the removal of blemishes and fine tuning color.
2. Prime $75 – Radiance: includes exPress plus radiant glow and evening of the skin. The focus of Radiance is softening skin/facial lines (forehead, around eyes, neck), evening skin tones, and lessening facial shine, yielding a radiant warmth to the face. The image may also include vignetting and refining color for greater depth.
3. Pro: $125 – The Works: includes all the attributes of Prime plus emphasis on not only the aesthetic quality of your headshot (see details below), but special attention is given to perfecting color, rendering depth, brilliance, and pop to your headshot. Pro Retouching renders your face, on your best day!
eyes – iris color, catchlights, whites, eyelashes, eyebrows, glare, bags, crows-feet, remove redness/bloodshot, watery
neck– soften lines, removing double chin, thinning, narrowing width, reducing jowls, darkening
hair – highlights, brilliance, sheen, glow; as well as mustache/beard/goatee: shaping, filling, removing strays, coloring
teeth – whiten, fill/straighten
thinning – remove unwanted pounds from all areas including face, neck, jowls, arms, legs, and tush…
nose – softening, removing redness, pores, blood vessels, straightening
lips – define, lighten soften, add contrast/depth
ears -remove glare, lessen attention
jewelry – remove glare, saturate color, restore clarity/sparkle
clothing – especially collar area, ties, shirt/blouse/jacket contours, smoothing wrinkles, balancing color
stray hairs – around head, ears, nose, chin, forehead

4. Premier: $250 – Tailor-Made Digital Background! Premier is an exclusive feature of Mark Jordan’s Headshot services, which is a mixture of our Pro-Retouching level plus a tailor-made, digital background to harmonize with any number of design considerations. This might be something as simple at matching your clothing choices or a complex as creating a background to correspond to your website. It’s the ideal choice for those looking for a one-of-a-kind, unique image, and who desire to Stand Out From the Crowd.
