IS YOUR HEADSHOT HOLDING YOU BACK?

Confidence

Your confidence is going to come from your eyes. You’re going to want to avoid that deer in the headlights look to drive home the fact that you’re an expert in your field.

Approachability

The approachability factor is a combination of the body language and the smile. Not all smiles are created equal and if it falls flat or looks fake, you can forget about looking approachable.  

Psychology

What are you trying to conveigh with your headshot? Does your current headshot get the job done, or is it costing you opportunities? Is your headshot positioning you properly to get the work you’re looking for?

YOU NEED A HEADSHOT BUT HATE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED

Sound familiar? Fear not. I get this ALL the time. Anyone can click the shutter on camera, but it takes an expert like myself to coach you from behind the camera. There's a learning curve to being photographed. If you walk through the door with a the ability to follow instructions, I can take care of the rest. This is one of those scenarios in life where you absolutely get out what you put in. It's a team effort.

SHOULD I BOOK A MAKEUP ARTIST FOR MY HEADSHOT SESSION?

The hard part about doing your own makeup is having enough of it on so that you look good in the lights, but doing it in a way that looks like you’re not wearing much makeup at all. If you’re on the fence, hire the makeup artist!

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP MY HEADSHOT?

We’re going to take a lot of great pictures of you. I’m going to send you home with a copy of every image you like. Your favorite image will be sent to the retoucher. We want you to look your best, but we also want to make sure you still look like you.

Owner | Photographer | Educator

I’m both a husband and a father. My wife Meghan, and daughters Layla and Norah, are at the core of my support network. Everything I do, I do for them, and they help make this all possible. Our life revolves around food. A couple of times a week, my girls and I go out for Daddy Daughter breakfasts. It’s quite often the highlight of my week.  I’m also a big geek. I love technology, and computers, and fancy cameras. I’m usually one of those guys that wakes up at 2:00am to preorder the newest Apple products.
