How a great Headshot will help you:
Do you like to be photographed? Like most people, you probably answer this question with "no". Are you still using an outdated or unprofessional profile picture for that reason? That's a shame – because you deserve a top headshot!
You are most likely going to feel a bit anxious and insecure before the session. This is absolutely normal and we experience this with nearly every client. After all, you don't get photographed every day, right? Therefore, we aim to create a relaxed, fun yet professional atmosphere.
A great headshot will help you to stand out from the crowd and leave a professional, trustworthy, and yet approachable first impression. Other people will see you as the leader that everyone respects and notices. This strengthens you not only in your current position but also helps you for future career opportunities.
Information about the
We photograph a maximum of two Headshot Sessions per day – always without time limitation. So neither you nor we are under time pressure - this creates a relaxed and productive atmosphere. Every person gets what they deserve: our full attention.
This will not work if the person after you is already standing in front of the door. Nevertheless, we don't want to keep you away from your work for too long - you're busy too and we respect that. Most people spend about 1.5 to 2 hours in our studio - some stay a little longer, others leave a little earlier. During this time we shoot about 300 - 400 pictures with different outfits and against different backgrounds - all without limitation.
Within a few minutes, the lighting of your face is perfect, your posture is right and the composition of the picture fits exactly. But the decisive ingredient for a great headshot is the right facial expression. Maybe it will be perfect after just a few minutes. Perhaps you need a little more time for this. But it doesn't matter. Because: neither you nor we will have to watch the clock. Good quality work and great customer service are much more important to us than serving as many customers as possible.
I'm sure you don't like having your picture taken. Almost nobody does and we are fully aware of that. If the clock in the background is also ticking away, this has a negative impact on the shooting. The goal of every Headshot Session is to create confident, authentic and powerful portraits of you. They should look natural, approachable and at the same time confident - as if you have everything under control at any time.
Maybe once or twice during the session, we take a quick look at some photos that we have taken. If necessary we will make slight changes to your look or light. Please remember that it is 100% our job to make you look good.
If you would like to have your make-up and/or hair done by a make-up artist prior to your headshot session, we offer this as an option. To ensure availability, we kindly ask that you for at least one week's notice to your shoot. Of course, a make-up artist is not a must, but definitely a nice-to-have and will boost your confidence even before the shoot begins.
