I signed up last night through Paypal for The Actorapture, I sent a message with payment stating that a possible morning photo session with the professionals was better for me. I hope that can be accomodated, but I will absolutely take whatever is available. Thanks

I'll be in attendance - will I get a confirmation from you/paypal that I was not only billed, but that a slot would be available? I would prefer a morning headshot sitting, preferably between 10 and 11 a.m - Thank you!

Hello there. Recent lurker, first time poster, and now a paid up ActoRapture Actor!

It would be great if I could have a slot in mid to late morning.

And thanks for putting this all together. Really looking forward to it.

Can't wait for this!! It's a two hour drive for us so would like a headshot appt. early afternoon. Thanks!!!
Comment by Becki Dennis on March 5, 2009 at 6:30pm
Hey Doug,
I'd prefer to have my headshots taken in the afternoon at around 1pm, if that's possible.
Will there by time to change between each photographer or do we get our headshots taken by the 3 photographers back to back? I'm assuming back-to-back because you said dress in layers, but thought I'd check if changing clothes is an option.
See you soon!
