Adam came to us wanting to update his portfolio for his acting career. He wanted a way for directors to notice him and to be set apart from the rest of the acting crowd. Having professional head shots are very important to any aspiring actor or actress that are looking to make a big break. Adam was very eager to make sure that his images we as eye catching as possible. In the acting world, directors have an easier time selecting who they want in their productions if they are presented with a head shot that looks professional and unique.
Keep It Simple
For actors head shots, simple is best. You want the directors to be drawn to your face, so as little distraction from the rest of your body as possible is great. Wear clothes that don’t have bright patterns or colors, and keep make up light. We recommend that you prepare before coming in by deciding on what character or personality you want portrayed through your head shots. Are you looking for more serious roles? Then a more serious attire and facial expressions. Want to work in comedy? Then more laid back clothing and a cheerful look. Want to do both? We can do that too! Your head shots are your chance to show off how you can get into character. In addition to having great facial expressions, having amazing lighting can make the images even more photographic. Adam knew when he came in that he wanted to keep his outfits simple and portray a serious and confidant demeanor.

The Importance of Professional Head Shots
A professionally taken head shot, is important because it shows people that you are serious about your first impression. In a social media dominated world, most people “meet” us for the first time by our head shot. When you have a professional head shot it shows that you care about the way that you appear to others. You take yourself seriously. It shows that you are worth the investment of a great image of yourself. The bottom line is it creates a great first impression.
If your head shot is not a professional head shot, it doesn’t inspire confidence and that you don’t take your image seriously.
Most professionals are now on Linked In. They had a lot to say about the importance of a professional head shot.
If you are in a professional line of business, you need a professional head shot.
How to Prepare for Your Professional Headshots Session
Once you have booked your head shot photography session with our studio, it’s time to start planning. Your outfits are a key part of your finished headshot images. Professional head shots are just that…head shots. They generally are half body or head and shoulder photos. This means that there needs to be interest to draw the viewer in in a tightly photographed image. We recommend that you choose a few different combinations of colors. This will give you options when choosing your final images. Also it is important to think about accessories. In a tightly shot photograph accessories add interest to a professional headshot. It’s as simple as adding a necklace, earrings, scarf or pin. It can change an image from boring to interesting.
What to Expect at Your Professional Head Shot Appointment
We know that the perfect headshot is important to our clients. For that reason we offer, not only a great experience, but a few other perks.

Our professional photographers will tether their cameras to our computers so that you can view your images during your photo session. This ensures that we are getting the “look” that you are trying to achieve. This creates excitement and relief for our clients.

Getting Ready for Your Head Shot Session
Before heading in to the studio think about all of the things that make up your personal brand and what you want others to take away from a glance at your profile page. Jot down some key words and phrases and bring them to your shoot. Think about what exemplifies your personal brand to you. Are you a chef? An educator? A writer? Are there props that could help tell your story? Bring them along!
We can take a couple different shots—in different outfits—so you’ll have a series to choose from. You may want to tailor your profile picture based on the social media platform you’re using. Remember to have fun! A relaxed, comfortable subject naturally exudes confidence.
What to Wear to Your Head Shot Session
It’s important that your look matches the image you’re trying to convey. For your profession head shots, what you wear on a daily basis is a great place to start. Solid colors are always a good choice, as are tops with strong collars and necklines. Even though you’ll only be shot from the shoulders up, it’s important you’re pulled together from head to toe—you may want a shot or two that are pulled back a bit. Aim for clothes that complement your skin and eye tones.
What to Wear:
• Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look great
• Make sure your jacket and shirt fit you well. A poor fitting jacket or shirt will be obvious in the photos (especially around the neck)
• Clothes should be neatly pressed and should look new or like new
• Avoid busy patterns and large lines/stripes
What to Bring:
• Sample professional head shots to help communicate the look you want

Our green screen photography techniques are professional, and convincing. While it’s always best to shoot in the real setting, this is the next best option, and many times, much more practical in an office setting.
Professional Headshots and Your Business
Dubbed “the new handshake,” professional head shots are now the first introduction to you, your business and your personal brand—shouldn’t that intro be the best it can be? With 93% of HR professionals and recruiters tapping into LinkedIn to find quality candidates—plus 2 in 3 on Facebook and more than half utilizing Twitter—your professional head shots has countless applications in your professional life. Should your profile pic be the family vacation, the fun night out or—worse—the logo or abstract shot? Or should it be a powerful, compelling and confidence-building headshot that makes prospective clients, employers and partners want to click “Connect?”

Head Shot Photographer
We love being a professional head shot photographer. It brings a lot of different people into our photography world. We may photograph a CEO in one appointment, a model in our next appointment and an actor in the next photography appointment. It really keeps us on our toes.
As you can imagine from these photos, Kayla is not the CEO of a company. Though she is confident and poised and may pass as a CEO, she is an aspiring actor and is involved in musical theater. At such a young age she has so much talent.
When she arrived at her photography session for her head shots, we could tell immediately that she would be a delight to photograph. As you can see, the camera loves her and she loves the camera.
Even as a young teen it was important to hire a professional make up artist to give Kayla’s images the extra edge. We didn’t attempt to try to make her look older by adding make up, just polish her up and give her that flawless finish that everyone desires.
Kayla’s agency is based in LA. She is with IMTA. IMTA is an international talent and modeling agency. When we work with an agency creating a professional portfolio, we always get specifications from the agency first. Every agency has different outlines based on their needs.

Actor Headshot and Model Headshot Photographer
Are you looking to update our actor headshots or your model headshots? Contact us for more of our actor and model portfolio sessions.
Actor Headshot and Modeling Portfolio
We are a actor and model headshot photographer. For Marquis, he was in need of both. He was headed to Orlando, Florida for a Disney Casting Call. He was not only being looked at by Disney but many other agents. That required a little of both, acting head shots and a modeling portfolio.
When you go to a casting call, you get one shot to be in front of the decision makers. You want to make sure that you have great, professional acting head shots or a professional modeling portfolio, in your hand.
The opportunity may be a once in a lifetime chance, so having the right professional photographer is key.
Modeling and Acting Portfolio Photography Sessions
When you schedule an modeling or acting portfolio session with us, we will ask a series of questions. The main question is who are these images for? What type of role are your auditioning for? Do you need to look younger, older, or your age? What companies will you be sending your portfolio to?
All these questions are valid to ensure that we get the right results in our images. For Marquis, the acting portfolio was for Disney only. We needed to ensure that we had images that portrayed him looking like someone you might see on the Disney channel. Here are a few examples.
Keeping Marquis looking young was a mixture of choosing the right clothing, the right photographic lighting, and having a cheerful appearance.
Now for the contrast between Marquis’ acting and modeling portfolio photos. For these photos he wanted to look older, fit, handsome and marketable.
Here are a few more of our favorite photos from his acting and modeling portfolio session.

Are you looking for an editorial photographer for your next magazine cover or layout? Contact us today for more information.
We have had many opportunities to be an editorial photographer for multiple magazines. This is our first time photographing for Military Spouse Magazine. In researching the magazine it has a very large distribution and has had many celebrities line their magazine covers. Monthly Military Spouse magazine circulation is 70,000.
Just last month Shaq was photographed for the cover for his “Shaq-A-Claus!” campaign. For us to photograph the cover for January, following Shaq, was exciting. There was quite a photographic standard in place that we needed to meet or exceed.
We got the call to photograph the cover and feature images for an article on Vista of VistaPix Media.
When we are photographing for a magazine, it is very important that we work closely with the art director. From there we receive specific instructions on their layout and vision for the magazine cover photo as well as the layout. Once we receive that information, we then can incorporate our photographic artistry. When we include our own creative vision, it helps the publication have multiple options when choosing their final photos.
As an editorial photographer it is important for us to bring out the best in our clients. It is no different then photographing any other client. We want to ensure that we highlight the best features, helping them look their best. Our full service studio helps us achieve this goal. We also can provide hair and make up artists for any of our photographic sessions. As a final touch, our editing will ensure that no detail is missed. The client and the magazine will be thrilled with the final product.
This magazine cover photo was a clean modern look that changed dramatically from the original vision for the cover. The collaboration between the art director and the photographer is essential to achieving a product that is suitable for their magazine but also incorporates the photographers artistic vision.
This is the latest of many editorial projects that we have photographed. If you would like to see more samples of our editorial photography, please contact us today.
Commercial Composite Photography
Are you looking for green screen photography? Maybe you are looking for commercial composite photography.
Composite photography is the art of taking multiple photos of individuals or elements and then layering them into one digital photo.
This image above is an example of a digital composite. This would be referred to as our green screen photography services.
On a commercial photo shoot, we spend a lot of time photographing each individual. We photograph them in several different poses and expressions. This allows us options on our final digital composite image.
Each of our subjects are photographed on a green screen or white screen. This is so we can extract them from the background. Digital extracting is a tedious and meticulous process. Once our extractions are complete we begin our art work designing in Photoshop.
For this commercial photography session they wanted a group image as well as individual images for their website and marketing.
For this particular commercial shoot we decided to use our white screen set up, instead of our green screen set up.
Here is an example of an individual image.
This is the result in extracting the subject in Photoshop then dropping them into a background of choice.
Here is an example of an alternate background.
Using the composite photo technique, we can basically take a commercial company anywhere. The company can be or look however they would like, all while being shot in one studio set up.
Here is another example of individual subject.
We have access to a multitude of backgrounds. We consult with our commercial accounts and find out what type of setting they are looking for. We then present a number of backgrounds to choose from.
In some cases, we have to go out and photograph new digital backgrounds. Here is an example of some digital backgrounds that we photographed for this commercial photography account.
We then present them by dropping a subject in the background. This helps the client visualize the final product. From there they choose their favorite backgrounds.
Here is more information on how we create our digital composites.

We love being commercial and advertising photographers. It can often be a very creative session if you have cool clients. Meet Wendy. She is the epitome of cool clients. Wendy is starting a new business and hired us as her commercial photographer.
When we are photographing for a commercial client, we want to ensure we have a clear vision of what they are trying to achieve. Through much communication and collaboration we achieved exactly what Wendy was looking for in her new branding and new business.
The product Wendy is selling, is her. Her expertise, her motivation and her mentoring. She wanted to be captured in a beautiful, fun and professional way.
Wendy did some serious planning before her photo shoot. She had been working with other professionals developing a new website and a new brand. Along with her new brand, she would need new photos to embrace that brand. She discussed in length different photos that she would need to fill all the spaces of her new website. She also needed professional commercial photos for things like email blasts, newsletters and social media. Here are a few of the shots that she needed to fill her website with professional photos.
Commercial Website Photos
In preparing for her commercial photo shoot, we knew that we would be capturing some images showing that Wendy loves to talk to you. She came up with the concept of incorporating the envelopes. This would send the message that she loves to get mail and LOVES to respond to her clients. We thought of a few ways to show this concept. With commercial photos this fun, who wouldn’t want to send her a letter?
Commercial Yoga Photography
Wendy is also a certified yoga instructor and will have a section on her website dedicated to yoga. She wanted some different, out of the box, professional yoga pictures.

Tips for Your Professional Head Shot Photo Session
Professional Hair and Make Up Services: For women, always consider professional hair and make up services. Professional make up application is key to a flawless complexion. We have professional make up and hair artists that will come to the studio and provide that service for you.
For guys, a little translucent powder applied to the face will help knock off any shine on the skin.
Variety of Colors and Styles: Often we have a favorite outfit or color, but in photographs it doesn’t always translate as beautifully as we imagined. If you have a variety of colors and styles it will give you more choices.
Different Backgrounds: If you choose us to be your head shot photographer, we will provide multiple backgrounds to give you a variety of options when choosing your perfect head shots. We also can provide green screen or white screen head shots with extraction services. When photographing on white or green screen you can be extracted from the background and placed into any background.
Tiny Prints and Stripes: Avoid tiny patterns, like hounds tooth or tiny stripes. They don’t translate well in camera and give a “zig-zag” appearance in your images.
