EDITORIAL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
Sometimes a traditional white background headshot of someone doesn’t fit the bill. As trends in Chicago shift more towards personal branding there’s a special need for editorial portraiture and it holds a special place in my heart because I get to have a little bit more fun. The photography is still about pulling amazing expressions out of people and I still get to focus on making a connection with my subjects, but I get to tap into my inner artist and do a little something different.
Will you shoot on location?
We do office shoots every single week. Our prices for location headshots start at $1000 and vary depending on the size and needs of your group. Please contact us for a quote or if you’re near Chicago, your team can come to our West Loop studio. The studio is located at 212 N. Sangamon Street.
What colors photograph the best?
I think most people know what colors look best on them. Black, white, and denim are very popular right now. I typically suggest people avoid red unless they have a dark complexion.
Do you offer discounts?
The thing about being the best, is that I stay very busy. For that reason, I only offer discounts for groups of 3 or more.
Do you only shoot headshots?
The main focus of my work is people. That’s headshots and portraits. I’m probably not the right guy to photograph your family in the park, but I shoot a wide variety of personal branding imagery from headshots to portraits in my studio and on-location..
What should I wear to my headshot session?
It’s hard to go wrong with black. It’s flattering on most people and works with a variety of backgrounds. I like white and denim a lot too. I like garments with subtle textures and as a general rule I suggest people avoid bold prints and bulky jewelry.
How should I do my hair?
Headshots are all about looking like yourself on your best day. I’d caution against doing anything out of the norm with your hair because you likely wont look like you. There’s always a curling iron, a blow dryer, and a variety of hair product for touch-ups when you arrive at the studio.
Everyone needs a headshot. Most people I come into contact with actually need a few different great pictures of themselves. In Chicago and in other major markets around the country the headshot you use on LinkedIn might be more or less formal than what you might want to use on a company website or a dating profile. You’re probably only going to get a headshot once every three or four years, so you might as well take advantage of the opportunity and get a little variety.
A great headshot isn’t just a picture of your face. The professional headshots that I create for my clients are about branding. It’s about positioning yourself in the marketplace. It’s about empowerment. I want people to be able to visualize how awesome you are. A great headshot is going to make people want to work with you.
CHICAGO PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
If you’re looking for a Chicago portrait photographer with experience working with magazines, we can do that as well. A headshot is a specific kind of portrait. My portraits are kind of like my rebellion from headshot photography. I get to ignore the rules and just have fun. Click the link below to check out my portrait portfolio.
