How We Can Create Powerful Headshots For You On Location

Are you looking for a photographer that will do headshots on location? 312 Elements will do exactly that for you. There isn't another photographer in the Chicago area that can do it better. ​


On-location headshots, if done correctly, require flexibility based on a variety of factors, such as location, lighting conditions, room size, insurance, permits, and more. It's much more difficult to have a successful headshot session in an office than it is in my studio.

The location kit for 312 Elements takes all this into consideration to ensure we have the right tools for the job, no matter the location or conditions. We can be set up and ready to shoot professional headshots on location in as little as 20 minutes. This wasn't always the case. It took a lot of trial and experience to be able to create high quality headshots on location that you'll love.

Our On Location Process for Headshots

First, we'll need a list of all the people in your company or office that will be getting headshots taken. Using that number and the amount of time available for the photoshoot, we'll be able to put together a schedule that is most suitable for you.

For these headshots we use a foolproof process we call Shoot-Review-Shoot-Select. Every member of your team will be coached in order to get the best headshot for your needs. Once the first round of headshots is completed, we'll bring all the participants to the computer where we'll have an instant review session.

This review session will help us get feedback to learn what they like and don't like about the headshots so that we can make some subtle adjustments moving forward. Once they've selected their favorite shot, we'll send it out for retouching.

Once that is taken care of, you'll receive a download link ten days later so you can download the retouched headshots. Yes, it' really that easy.

Important Things To Consider

There are other elements of an on location session that you might not have considered. If you'd like a makeup artist on-site, we can arrange that for you. A good makeup artist can make a world of difference when combined with a good headshot photographer. My friend Seshu Badrinath from Connecticut Headshots insists on having a makeup artist at all of his group headshot sessions.

There is also the issue of copyright. Would you like to own the copyright for all the headshots? We can take care of that as well.

As long as it does not reduce the quality of the final product, we are happy to cater to your needs if at all possible.

In a perfect world, we'd prefer to have a half hour with each participant. However, we know that's not always realistic and we can make it work and produce a good headshot with as little as five minutes. The more time we can have with each individual, the better the final product will be.

We have the process down so well that we can handle as many as 80 people in a day. If your needs include more than 80, I am happy to bring one of my highly qualified associate photographers along with me to help.

Your employees are an extension of your brand and your company culture. When your team has great headshots it reflects positively on your business. Staff headshots are not just a great perk for your hard-working team, but they're also a great recruiting tool. When potential new hires go to your company website and see their future colleagues as fun, confident, and approachable people, it makes your organization a more attractive place to work.

It's our goal to make this entire process as easy as possible for you. We're always willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions.
