You may think the point of a good headshot is to make you look good. That’s part of it — but not the most important part. Ultimately, what’s most important is not how you think you look in your headshot — it’s how the person using it to make a business decision thinks. Likewise, if you’re looking for professional headshots, then you’re probably on a real-world schedule. After we shoot, proofs are delivered within 24 hours. Then, based on which shots we select, final headshots are delivered within 24 to 72 hours. We can shoot on location — indoors or outdoors — or in a studio.
You want potential customers to feel they are seeing someone they’d like to have business dealings with. Someone who exudes confidence. Someone who looks like they know what they’re doing. Mediocre headshots can ruin the effect of an otherwise well-written and laid-out advertisement or document. The old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is based on fact. People take visual cues to heart quickly and subconsciously.
As a photographer, I know how to capture your “best” self. I’ll provide a positive, professional look that will be the first impression many people have of you and your business. That includes capturing the reality of your work. If you’re a white-collar professional, then a standard corporate headshot in my studio may be your best option. It’s what other professionals expect. But if you want to capture the nature of your business —manufacturing, retail, or any other fixed commercial site — then shooting at your place of work may be a better option. And if you work on location — say as an arborist or building contractor — I can handle shooting in your environment.
I love to go on the road. My portable studio can go to your office, manufacturing facility, retail business, or custom location. It’s designed to go anywhere … and will. Also, if your job includes multiple subjects — say headshots of your entire staff for your webpage or other advertising — then I can offer significantly reduced rates for coming to you.
I will send you my corporate headshot prep guide that provides recommendations for wardrobe, hair and makeup and much more. You are also entitled to a pre-shoot phone consultation where we will discuss your brand and what you want to achieve with your new headshots.
You’ve done your part when you arrive for your headshot session. You can trust me to deliver on all the other details.
We will pause during the shoot to review what we’ve captured to ensure your expectations are being met. We will do a final review together before you leave to identify your favorites.
