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.

How To Improve Your Real Estate Sales
In today’s current market, being able to sell your home or real estate can either be boosted or hindered by good photos. Good lighting techniques and proper shooting angles of the professional photography trade can instantly improve any listing. With realty properties they typically decrease in price in order to sell. With stellar pictures, you won’t have to settle for a lower asking price. The real estate market has seen a surge in homes selling for more than the asking price. Why? Because of the use of professional photography, rather than an amateur photographer. Professional home staging also improves the chances of your property being on the market for a shorter time. If you want to include home staging in your real estate, check out this helpful source.
Best Time For Realty Pictures
One of the things to consider when it comes to professional realty photography is the lighting. The best time for amazing lighting is mid morning until the afternoon. This condo is a wonderful example of utilizing the natural day light that was coming in through the windows. It added the photographic appeal that home buyers are looking for. The open hard wood floor plan allowed the light from the windows to bounce off of it and added extra lighting to the pictures. Making sure to know how to work the lighting with certain angles is very important and can make or break any image. The pictures below were taken using the panoramic method. It provides potential home buyers with a better idea of the layout of the space and showcases the natural lighting coming in from both sides of the property.
A technique that we use is called High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography. This method requires the blending of 7 images of various exposures. The result is an image with a broad range of tones enabling the viewer to see details in the highlights and shadows. Combining this technique with panoramic images where 4 HDR images are stitched together into one amazing image. Elevate your asking price by using these advanced techniques! Here are a few more images from our condo real estate shoot.

How to Create the Perfect Band Photo
We strive to create the look that a band is looking for. Once we have booked a band for a professional photo session we have a consultation. The consultation helps us understand who the band is and the look and feel they want to create. We need to understand the genre of music, the persona and the style of the band.
We often start our consultation with the question, “What are you looking for in your band photography?”. We also instruct them to send us inspirational images. If a band does not have inspirational images, we ask them to send us images they don’t like. Though this sounds strange, it still helps us with a vision of what they like and don’t like. We then proceed on a setting. Will the band photo shoot take place indoors or outdoors. Do we need to rent a venue, or can we produce the look they want in our studio? What type of professional photographic lighting should we use to create the perfect band photo?
These are all things that we have to consider as a photographer when we are working with a band. Bands are artistic and generally know who they are. They want to make sure that their brand matches their photos.

Meet Nia. She was looking for someone that specialized in headshot photograhy. She is an actress that wanted images that would immediately capture the eye of directors.
When we are photographing headshots for actors like Nia, they have a goal for their final images. Actors tend to know what they want. They know the perception that they want to have in their photograph. They have a look that they know will capture the eye of the director. She knew that it was important to have the perfect headshot to land the perfect role.
Professional headshot photography plays and important role. Your headshot is the first impression. At a glance, if your photo doesn’t stand out, it may get overlooked. It may be the difference of getting the role, or not getting the role.
This can happen not only for actors but for any professional. When people are seeking someone to hire, your headshot will either draw them in, or tune them out. You want your headshot to say, I’m together, I’m confident…pick me.

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.

We love having band photography sessions. When you get to photograph a cool band like Rellen, it makes our job easy.
Our main goal for the band photography session was to capture a composite of the band. The description of a composite image is a photo that is a combination of multiple images. These images are then merged together into one single image. We photograph the elements of a composite image on a green screen. Then the individual images are extracted from the background in Photoshop. In conclusion you then layer in multiple elements and filters to create a somewhat surreal image.
This was the single image that was the result of their session.
How to Prepare for Your Band Photography Session
When we are preparing to photograph a band, or any composite, a lot of preparation must happen. Bands have already developed their “style” and are artists. In general, artists, have a look that they already have achieved, or are trying to achieve. Communication is key when planning for a band photography session. We must find out the style or the look the band wants to be labeled with. Once that is established we have to rule out what they don’t want. Next we have to agree on a theme for the image. Finally we have to create a background image.
The background image will determine the posing that must be captured to create the final image. Photography lighting and your camera angle must match the background perspective.
Before we photograph a composite image, we draw several sketches. This gives us options for posing. When the band arrives we will try a variety of poses, but only poses that will work in the composite that we are creating. This helps us think through what can truly work in a final image.
What Type of Client Uses Composite Images
We have a number of clients that are now choosing composite images. Bands, solo artists, families and some of our corporate clients now are wanting more from their photography. Some of our corporate clients are wanting to stand out in a crowded market. When we can create a unique composite image, it will help them do that. Companies that want to portray themselves in different setting is now possible through composite images. Families that want their images to be more unique then the “Jones”, it is a perfect option.

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

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.

Creating a Modeling Portfolio
When we have models or aspiring models that book a portfolio session with us, it is our job to create gorgeous images. Gorgeous images will help our clients book modeling jobs. Whether the model is just updating their portfolio or creating a new portfolio, we create a lot of images to choose from. When photographing a modeling portfolio it is important for us to photograph head shots, half body, three quarter body and full body shots. For most of our models, they are selling their entire body from head to toe. That makes it important to show the pose variations in the photographs.
We use state of the art photography equipment and photography lighting, which creates stunning portraits.
For Felicia’s modeling portfolio we decided to photograph her on a white sweep. When we photograph on a white sweep there are no distracting, or competing, elements or colors in the background. This will draw the eye to the subject. For a modeling portfolio, that is where the eye should be.
Felicia brought a few different outfits. This is always good for a modeling portfolio. You want a variety of clothing and color. That will not only give you many options, but also many different looks to choose from. When forming a modeling portfolio you want a variety of images that highlight different looks and assets. This way the client will be more diversely marketable to many different modeling campaigns.
Felicia is currently with Wright Models and Actors.

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.
Beautiful Commercial Headshots
Here are a few more of Wendy’s beautiful professional headshots.
