What does your headshot say about your business? Put your best foot forward with a professional, up to date headshot. This session takes approximately 15 minutes at my Esquimalt studio and includes 1 lighting look with 1 outfit. 1 high resolution retouched file with no watermark and full commercial usage rights is included with the session and additional photos can be purchased for $50 apiece. We will shoot tethered to my laptop in the studio so you can immediately see what we're getting and we can make adjustments to your pose and expression to ensure that you get an image that you love. Choose from a selection of seamless backdrop colours including white, grey, black, blue, orange, rose, pink, or we can use the area outside my studio as shown in the second to last image in this package, or the space and furniture in my studio to get a little more depth in the background as shown in the final image in this package. You can either choose your image(s) on the laptop at the end of your session or be sent an online proof gallery from where you can choose your image(s). Final payment will be due upon selection of your image(s) and in most circumstances images will be delivered within 7 days of your final payment unless otherwise specified.
Can I bring a friend for moral support? Yes, absolutely! Sometimes it can be helpful to have a friend's input on outfit choices or image selections; How much retouching is included? Standard retouching is included, this includes colour correction & contrast, teeth whitening, reducing dark circles or eye bags, fixing the odd stray hair and blemish removal. Additional retouching for things like face or body reshaping, skin smoothing, excess stray hairs etc are available for an extra charge. You are responsible for ensuring your hair, skin and clothing are looking the way that you want for your session.; I want to get photos for my whole team/staff, are there reduced rates for groups? Yes, discounts are based on group size in increments of 4, the more people in your group the larger the discount.; Can you shoot on location at my home or office or outside? Yes I can shoot on location, there is an additional set up fee for moving all of my lighting equipment from my studio to your location of choice.

With 12 years of experience shooting countless professionals and creatives from hundreds of industries, I work with all of my clients to develop the right look to represent them and their business.

I work out of my fully equipped Esquimalt studio 5 minutes from downtown Victoria, but can also shoot on location at your home or office or outdoor location of choice.
First impressions are everything! To make a headshot yell hire me is not a easy job. It involves not only the technical aspect of photography, it also requires the clients to present their best self! Sounds hard enough? In my studio, the clients are always happy with the result, so they keep telling their friends. I welcome my clients into the studio and I keep talking to them so they are relaxed and not just thinking about the headshot. Than I would ask them to sit in a chair where the lighting is al setup and tested. I also have a computer screen that will display the photo as I take it. Than I will start to give them tips on their posture such as drop their shoulder, cross their arms, or lean forward. By now, only 50% of the job is done. The other 50% is to bring out the best smile! To achieve this, I will keep encouraging my client and give them tips on how to improve. I am also looking at the photos with my client to find out what they like and don't like. Step by step, I am leading my client to not only smile with their mouth, but also smile with their eyes. Sounds like it's going to take forever! No, I only need 30 minutes of your time and you can pick from a variety of angles and different outfit as well. You need your photo right away? No problem, with a rush fee, your headshot will be ready in 48 hours!
This session is for those who might need a few variations of photos, or a few different background and/or clothing options. (If you just need one or two good photos, you might want to check out my 20 min headshot session instead.) If you're looking for a natural looking headshot, I can help you get it done without any big fuss. No need to be a model, I have lots of ways to help you feel comfortable and can guide you with how to stand and ‚Äúpose‚Äù so that you don't look or feel awkward. We will meet at a park, and after a couple of minutes chatting to see what kind of look you want to achieve, we'll get right in to shooting. You'll know right away how the photos are turning out because I'll show them to you on the back of my camera as we go so we can make adjustments if needed. Group Rates Available for companies needing headshots for many people!
