New this year!
A professional, properly lit and edited head shot makes a great impression on colleagues, parents, and students. Your favorite polished image should be used consistently on professional social medial platforms, concert programs, and special events. Creating an image you are proud to share can be done quickly and conveniently at this year's MICCA conference!

10 minute portrait sessions will take place Thursday before conference sessions begin, with overflow sessions on Friday morning. Photographs will be taken on a simple grey backdrop, and posing can vary from the traditional formal head shot to something more creative. Choosing to include your instrument or baton in the image is welcome, as is choosing to both include and not include these items during your session. Three different images will be selected by the subject during the session. Final selections will be fully edited and delivered via digital download two ways - in both hi-resolution jpeg and web-ready jpeg formats within 2 days. A total of six files are in your download folder, available for 30 days and stored at the studio for 2 years.
