Do you need a great shot of yourself for your website, resume, or social media profiles? I specialize in quick and easy headshots, done outside in about 20 minutes (up to 30 if needed). 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. Not sure it can be done this quickly? Check out my portfolio and see the kinds of shots I've done for others! And if you need more time, we can always extend and do a double session :) Group Rates Available for companies needing headshots for many people!
What should I wear? Clothing choice will depend on the look you are going for. If you want a business headshot, choose dressier clothes than for a casual lifestyle portraits. As for colors, I normally tell people to stay away from tones that look like their own skin color ,as I've seen photos where people tend to look ‚Äúnaked‚Äù. Textures (like knitted sweaters) look great, but avoid large patterns/prints and big logos. It might be worthwhile to consider where this photo will end up‚Ä¶ is it going on your website which is mostly blue? Then a blue shirt might match well, for example!; Can I purchase more photos if I want? If you end up liking or needing more than just two photos, additional photos can be purchased for $25 each. (This will include light retouching and delivery as high resolution jpg.); Can we do a studio shoot? I'm sorry but I am not able to use the shared studio space anymore due to COVID-19. All sessions must be done outside, or at your office / store and I will wear a mask if we are indoors!; Can I choose my background? Probably! Tell me in your first email what you have in mind for the background and we will choose our location accordingly! If you want something plain, like a white background, we can use a building wall as the background. Most of the time however, my clients like to have something natural in the background.; Where are the sessions done? I normally shoot at Portage park in the morning for these sessions because the light is nice and there are a variety of backdrops to choose from. Due to the short nature of these sessions, I don't travel outside View Royal for these types of sessions.

So, you need a headshot!?! Great! I can help :)Hi, I'm Naomi, and I went to film school in the late 90's‚ I'm used to being in front of the camera as well as behind. I understand what it's like to have a big lens pointed at your face ‚Äì it can be quite intimidating! You probably don't do this often, so I'll do my best to make you comfortable by getting the shots quickly and I'll never make you stiff by holding a pose for a long time!I shoot outdoors because I love the soft light and natural backdrops we have here in Victoria.
This headshot package is for those looking to stand out from the crowd. I believe the best portraits reveal themselves when there is feeling of connection, ease, and freedom to play. This is why my headshot/portrait sessions are listed at an hour. Busy executive with only 15 minutes to spare? No problem, I've made hundreds of portraits in under ten minutes but it's nice to know you can stay longer if you find yourself really getting into it. I can produce professional results anywhere, in my studio, on the beach or at your place of work. I'm equally comfortable with natural and studio lighting and my personal style is to augment natural lighting with a hint of flash or reflector for a bold look.
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.)
