You are the face of your brand, you have a story to tell and your headshot is an important part of that story. A good headshot presents you as confident and approachable. There are other aspects of your personality or your business that you may wish to communicate.

I offer a personally tailored photo shoot with your requirements as the first priority. Consider what sort of image you wish to portray.

Dancers, actors, models and musicians often prefer a fashion or cinematic style image for their profile photo. They may also require a high key shot with a clean white background for some audition applications.

Corporate clients usually need either a classic, high key white background, or a location shot with their place of business in the background.

Small business owners vary in needs from formal, corporate images to more creative cinematic shots, depending on what industry they represent. 

The three main categories of headshot photography I offer are: Classic, Cinematic and Fashion style.

CLASSIC - this is a simple, clean headshot perfect for any type of business or corporate needs. Also great for dancer or actor audition applications. Photos are taken in the studio or with portable studio equipment.

CINEMATIC - For a more contemporary look, the cinematic style is popular with small business owners. Photos are taken on location with the background blurred out.

FASHION STYLE - Great for personal branding, actors, dancers and models. Taken in studio or on location and edited with contemporary fashion toning.

Next time you need to update your headshot photos for your website, blog, social media profiles or business cards, consider which style of headshot suits your industry and personality. Remember, you only have one chance to make a first impression.
