Headshots

People often meet your face before they meet you.

 

A headshot is your visual introduction to the professional world, whether it's on your LinkedIn profile, website or even on-screen during remote meetings.

It's not just a matter of a pleasant smile with good lighting.  A great headshot reflects your personality and conveys a real sense of who you are. 

Making  fantastic images of

regular folks is what we do.

Especially if you're one of the "I hate having my picture taken" crowd, email or give me a call to arrange your low-stress session today.

Owen

I once pried open a developing tank and unspooled a roll of film, still dripping with chemicals, and held it up to the light. On the strip of negatives I could make out my schoolmates' goofy grins, and the distinct shapes of the neighborhood cats I'd photographed just hours earlier.  I was twelve, I had just developed my first roll of film, and I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. ​

Decades later, I photograph people every day, and I love it.  It's consistently fun to make images that affect emotions and tell a story, and  I think the joy I feel behind the camera finds its way into the faces of the people I photograph. 

I joined photographic forces with Joni Dufour in 2008, and together we've earned a reputation as a creative, reliable and personable team.

Over the years I've photographed heads of state and Nobel laureates, but most days we're making great images of regular people.  We're as comfortable working with a time-pressed CEO or celebrity as we are with a camera-averse professor who kicks off their headshot session with, "Ok, let's get this over with".
 
Whether we're shooting a portrait or covering a day-long conference, our goal is to make our client's day better and to deliver great images that exceed their expectations. 

Send me an email or call me and let's discuss how our photography can help you make your message more compelling, or simply make you look great on LinkedIn.
I’ve enjoyed many jobs over the years, like bike mechanic, chef, editor, book-seller. When I started working with Owen in 2008, I recognized that many skills I'd acquired from those jobs were vital to being a good photographer: creativity, attentiveness, technical know-how, and proficiency in masquerading as an extrovert.  
Managing off-camera light and working as a second photographer at conferences and events is how it all began for me. I developed a talent for capturing candid moments and behind-the-scenes shots, finding new angles and vantage points to create strong images.
Now, I shoot events solo whenever needed. When I’m not shooting an event, I create flattering light for our headshot and portrait clients, and help them find natural-looking and comfortable poses.
I've spent a lot of time studying methods for posing and lighting because I'm enthusiastic about helping people look great in photos. My eye for detail helps me recognize flattering angles and catch little things that need adjusting sooner rather than later, optimizing our subject's time in front of the camera.
 
All this experience and enthusiasm affords us an unflappable vibe. We have fun doing our job and I think it shows. Trust me, you'll have fun too.
