Professional Studio Headshots

Headshots are something that we really need in the modern, post-pandemic world, but that most of us really don’t want to have taken. It can be more than a little stressful for the majority of people to get in front of a headshot photographer and relax.

And you can be sure that nobody ever walks into our studio space, jumps in front of the camera, and says “I’ve got this!”. In fact, it can be very intimidating to get in front of a professional camera and lens, that’s being pointed at you by a photographer who you met just five minutes earlier.  It’s a wee bit uncomfortable. Making it as easy as possible is the goal.

At Headshots MI you will be expertly guided through your headshot photo session, coached into relaxed and comfortable positions, and shown how to pose correctly. Don’t worry, it’s not difficult.  How you feel has a tremendous impact on how your expression will show on camera, and we are experts at getting you into that ideal mindset.

Your Headshot Photographer.

The personality of any professional headshot photographer is extremely important. A gruff attitude, impatience, and any kind of disconnect just aren’t going to bring out the best in you, and your headshot portrait depends on it. We can look at the face of someone who enters a room and be able to tell that something is off, we are so aware of facial subtleties. So getting just the right expression is critically important, and something that needs to happen naturally.

As a professional headshot photographer, my job is to connect with you, help you to feel relaxed, and not be hiding behind the camera all of the time. It’s the camera that takes the headshot, but the photographer that draws out the personality of the subject. I’m told by my clients that it’s something I do. I hope so.

 

Corporate Headshots.

Corporate headshots have become an essential part of our professional image, and it’s no longer an image solely used within the confines of a company newsletter or on an I.D card.  It’s now front and center, often available for millions to view on sites like LinkedIn. You want to look your very best and that’s the goal.

We have all seen the questionable car selfie, or the mirror headshot some use, and it doesn’t paint a pretty picture. A professional headshot, fully retouched, makes a world of difference. And anyway, a selfie is not a headshot, right?

How Long Will My Headshot Take?

I’m fully aware that my clients want to get here, have their business headshot captured without any fuss, and get back to dealing with other more pressing issues.

That’s precisely the photography service we offer. Typically a standard session to achieve one final image will take around 15 – 20 minutes. From that, you will be able to choose from a final set of perhaps 10 – 20 photographs, either at that time or from a complimentary online gallery. More in-depth sessions will of course take longer.

 

Retouching Headshots.

If you have any specific requests or would like to discuss any sensitive issues that will affect your session, please feel free to mention whatever that may be. We understand that most of us have insecurities or sensitivities when in front of a camera, and if we know ahead of time, it can make a significant difference.

As an example, if someone feels they have a protruding chin, we can pose them in a way that reduces that feature.  Even the lens choice can be used to increase or decrease a feature. Don’t worry about raising concerns, the more we know the better your photos will be.

Here’s an interesting fact. Almost all of us have one eye a little bit bigger than the other, it’s just how it is. We correct that in post-production. Many people want a little bit of face slimming and that’s not a problem, and of course, pimples are banished in the retouching process. It’s all part of our professional photography service.

There is a lot that goes into what will become your final headshot portrait, and if there are any little tweaks that you would like, we will do all we can to accommodate.

Professional Headshots Specs.

Company headshot specifications will differ depending on the final use. Some will be square crops, some rectangular. As well as your headshot being used for a company bio, it may also be used for a social profile, LinkedIn or perhaps Facebook, and so on. In order to account for that, we produce your final image(s) as follows.

• Your headshot portrait in full resolution.
• Both print and web resolution versions.
• Different crops to fit various social sites

 

Turnaround Time.

Typically, the turnaround time for your images is within 48 hours, though it can be the same day if you are in a rush. If you want to choose your final headshot portrait while you are here, you can. Or, if you prefer to discuss it with someone, or ponder the options, a complimentary online gallery with the images taken will be uploaded for you to choose from.

 

Professional Headshots In 3 Steps.

1. Book Your Session.
2. Choose Your Final Image(s)
3. Recieve Your Headshot Via Email.

It’s a pretty stress-free process, and likely a lot easier than it might seem. The actual session doesn’t take long, there is more time and work put into the final image retouching and preparation than there is in taking the shot. That being said, if you need more time to get the photos that you like, that’s all part of our packages.

Testimonial

Hugh was an excellent photographer. He did my headshots. I have never gotten professionally taken headshots before, and I was so nervous. He was extremely professional, respectful, and kind, and gave me guidance throughout the photo session. I would recommend him for anyone's photos! Thank you, Hugh!
