Headshot types

You have one chance to make a first impression, so it's really important to make an impact  with a professional profile picture.

Not just exclusively for LinkedIn or social media , this style of headshot  is perfect for any situation that requires  a professional profile picture e.g. CV's,  staff directories,  ID cards, personal websites etc.

This is a relatively quick shoot - around 30 mins.  Choose the look you want from the styles shown below, and we shoot using this set up, against  white and black backgrounds. I can offer advice on the look if you are unsure.

I will spend an hour with you and we will work through a few different poses and ​ a couple of different lighting set ups which you  can choose from below.

You should bring two outfits so we can have a variety of final images from different combinations of pose, lighting and outfit.

This style of headshot is used to profile a director in company reports, press releases, PR, trade or consumer magazine editorials or company websites, but is also good for actors and models.

 I will spend two hours with you working through different poses and lighting set ups. You should bring two or three outfits so you have a variety of final images from different combinations of pose, lighting and outfit.

This session can be done at my studio or at your premises, taking advantage of your own surroundings  such as office, board room,  or other key areas such as production lines, warehouse or outside.  I will happily advise if you are unsure.

Classic High-Key
Classic headshot look using a single light, offset to the side, to create depth with shadows across the face. Background lit to make pure white - this makes it a good solution if the subject needs to be cut out from background for other uses e.g. print media. Sharper edges to give additional standout from background. Suitable for all social media profiles, staff directories and company websites.
Modern High-Key
Modern headshot look using a single light, above and to the front of the subject, which gives beautiful even light down the face. A reflector is placed under the flash to bounce light back onto the subject to help fill shadows under the eyes and chin. Background lit. Sharper edges to give additional standout from background. Great for actors and models, ands ideal for PR, editorials, company reports & brochures and suitable for all social media profiles, staff directories and company websites.
