PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT INFORMATION AND RATES

THE PROCESS

Consultation

When you come into my studio we will chat, get to know each other a little bit, and discuss what it is that you want out of your headshots.  We go through your wardrobe options and select the outfits that will look best on camera.  I have over 10 years of experience as a headshot photographer so I know what outfits look best on camera.

Light Test

Once we have a plan for your headshots, I run a light test.  Every face and body is different, and it only makes sense to light you in a way that makes you look your absolute best.  If you follow my work, you will see that I do not have a cookie cutter lighting style. I am extremely specific about my lighting setups to match your face shape, skin tone, and and mood we want for your headshots.

Coaching

Before we start shooting, I spend time teaching you how to take a great headshot.  From my experience, both in front and behind the lens, most people tend to feel uncomfortable having their photo taken.  If you are one of those people who says, “I hate having my photo taken,” don’t worry, 99% of people come into my studio saying the exact same thing.

First I teach you how to look into the lens.  If you look at all of my work, you will notice one thing that everyone has in common: they all have presence and relationship in their eyes.  Getting my clients connected in the eyes is my expertise as a headshot photographer.  Your headshot needs to be a conversation to your potential client.  If I am your client and I am looking at your headshot, who are you looking at? Me!  If I have never met you and it feels like I know who you are when I look at your photo, your headshot will already be working for you. The eyes are the most important part of any headshot I ever take because it is your eyes that tell your story.

I will teach you how to stand, what to do with your arms, and how to generate organic and natural facial expressions throughout the course of the photoshoot.  I will also coach you how to communicate confidence and look approachable.

Shoot and Review

It is important to me that we are working together in a relaxed and communicative environment so you can look and feel your best while we work. My approach is a little different to what you may be used to, both in the shooting of the photos and the review of them.

We take photos and then we review them together on the computer.  I do this for a number of reasons.  First and foremost, I think reviewing the images on a 27″ screen is a great learning tool for you to see what you are doing and what you can do better.  I work with you to figure out how we can take the photos to the next level.  It also gives you an opportunity to know that your results are coming in.  We take as much or as little time as we need.  I want you to look confident and approachable, so if we get there quickly, great, but it might take you longer, which is totally cool.  We go at your pace.

Photoshoots Can Be Fun

You don’t have your headshots taken everyday, so we might as well have fun when we shoot them!  I am very serious about my work and getting great results, but the photoshoot experience is often filled with a lot of laughs.  At the end of the day, I really want you to have fun and enjoy the experience.  I want you to be able to tell your friends and colleagues that you had an enjoyable and relaxed time with me, all while creating awesome headshots for you!

Finished Product

Once you give me your final image numbers I get to work and retouch them.  Retouching is a very important part of the process.  My retouching style takes time because I want your photos to look perfect without them looking photoshopped.  It is very important that you look like you, but the best version of you.

Brandon is, quite simply, the finest photographer I’ve ever worked with. Headshots can be an uncomfortable process a lot of the time but Brandon has a rather uncanny knack of putting you at ease and capturing what’s going on behind the eyes. Highly recommended!

Got my headshots done with Brandon in 2017. I did lots of research before I went to him and was attracted by the dark edginess of his captures. Super kind and professional. I felt comfortable to be myself in front of the camera which can be difficult at photoshoots sometimes. I got the sense that Brandon was truly taking an interest in me so he could know me and collaborate some great shots. Brandon rocks!

We have engaged Brandon to take our company headshots twice over the past several years. He really has a talent for bringing out the best of his subjects in the final product. He is professional, reliable, and over all a real pleasure to work with. We will hire him again.

Brandon was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was kind and able to pull out the best pictures of me when I felt the worst about myself. If you not only want the highest quality, most professional photos, but to have a safe space with a respectful man who makes you feel like a friend, then look no further than Brandon. I will definitely be returning in the future!

Got my acting headshots done with Brandon and was very pleased with the process! Easy going, really has a great eye for subtle lighting and posing. Didnt rush me and knew how to give direction well. Proofs were sent in a timely manner and finals were delivered quickly too! Would definitely recommend him to any actors looking to get professional headshots.
