Headshot Photographer Victoria, BC

Hi! I'm Emma Rossum. I'm a professional photographer and designer based in Victoria, BC. My photography work revolves around businesses, brands, weddings, and lifestyle portraits. Since 2018, I've collaborated with and served clients including Harris Kuipers, Fort Street Cycle, The Root Cellar, Laura Harris Studio, Wildplay Victoria, and more. My photography approach is to look for the story within each moment. I'm all about finding the beauty in the chaos of life. :) If you're looking for a photographer who will bring your personality out on camera, or you're looking for the kind of headshots that'll land you the interview and job, you've come to the right place.

I use to think headshot is just a photo of a person smiling until I looked at Peter Hurley's headshots! He uses a bunch of lights to make people's eye pop, and this makes his headshots unbeatable.When I started learning, I used one light and would ask people to stand in a certain way to make them look more confident. However, I felt like there was something still missing from my headshots. Then I looked at more of Peter Hurley's photos and tutorials. I started to add 2, 3 and finally 4 lights to my headshots. This helps my headshots really accent the eyes and make them the centre of the attention. So no matter what colour your eye's are or how big they are, they have a sparkling and bright effect, which makes you look intelligent and approachable.

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.

Becoming a photographer happened very organically for me. After getting my BA in Criminal Justice from Camosun I moved to South Korea to teach English and pay back a pile of student loans. I documented the quirkiness of everyday life there and more I shared, the more people told me I should try selling my photos. So I did, and they sold quite well on Getty. One day a friend of a friend asked if I did family sessions, I had never tried but always enjoyed something new. And that's where it all began for me. I created a website, shared my shoots and quit my university teaching job to work with families, couples, artists, magazines, and global corporations like Netflix, Chanel and The Four Seasons. If anything defines my photography it is diversity. I've shot staff portraits, food and architecture for The Four Seasons Hotel on Tuesday and then captured an an engagement session at the palace the next day. I adore learning and I think my ability to shoot all styles of photography makes me a more capable photographer. COMMERCIAL CLIENTS Chanel, Netflix, Google, Four Seasons, Lancome Paris, Rolling Stone, Bobby Brown, Samsung, Dior, DBS, American Express, Airbnb, The Economist, MCI, Booking.com, Eastdil Secured, Schroders, Turkish Airlines

What I love most about portrait photography is seeing people grow completely comfortable in their own skin. My clients describe my approach as warm and friendly. It's my goal for you to fall in love with your photos -- and to leave our sessions feeling incredible. I'm always seeking the right angles and lighting to capture you at your best. Nothing makes me happier than when a client loves their photos so much, they can't wait to book again.

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 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.
