Headshots are special portraits meant to grab attention. Actors have to send in headshots to recruiting agencies who will spend seconds looking through hundreds of headshot images looking for a good match. So a great image that grabs instant attention is crucial. Musicians and business executives also need similar imagery for good PR.
I have various background colours and can accommodate requirements for high-key or low-key images (often used to "knock out" a headshot in published materials).
What should you expect
An individual headshot can take an hour (which includes coaching you to get the best possible poses and the option to try different styles).
A company looking to take a larger number of people should expect to cover upto 20 people in a half day. I am happy to work within your allocated timeframes (e.g. to accommodate for a group of employees).
It takes a little time to setup an environment with appropriate lighting and the background you want, but the end results show the attention to details. The files you receive will be high resolution, large enough for any purpose.
When I take photos, the images are shown on my laptop screen to offer immediate feedback. I offer optional retouching services to meet your requirements.
Can you bring your studio to me?
I have a studio setup located in West Linton, Peebleshire, but I will happily drive to locations located in the Scottish Borders, Midlothian, East Lothian, Edinburgh and South Lanarkshire. My studio equipment is portable and should fit within a typical conference or living room area.
Setup and dismantling the studio equipment can take upto another hour in total. Please contact me for more details.
