CONSULTATION

When you come into my studio we will chat, get to know each other a little bit, and discuss your goals for your headshots.  We go through your wardrobe options and select the outfits that will look best on camera.  I have over 13 years of experience as a headshot photographer so I have developed a keen eye for what outfits work best in front of the lens.

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 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.

First year getting our family Christmas photos done with Brandon and they turned out absolutely amazing! We had fun coming up with ideas and bringing them to life together. His studio was great and his lighting set up very impressive. Beyond that Brandon is really friendly and an expert at his craft. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for editorial portraits, his calibre of work speaks for itself.

I got some acting headshots with Brandon this year and it was a great experience. He really cared about me getting what I wanted out of the photos, continuously checking in to make sure we were capturing what I was looking for. I also got my hair and makeup done with Faye for the shoot and she did an awesome job. She gave me the natural look I was going for that looked great on camera. Overall a great experience with lovely people.

I got my headshots done with Brandon yesterday, after taking a hiatus from acting for a few years. My nervousness immediately dissolved upon entry. I love that it felt like a collaboration and that he’s really with you every step of the way. Super invested in every detail. Same with the make up artist. It almost threw me off that he didn’t rush and impose his ideas on me! Really pleasant experience, great photos. Exactly what I imagined. I’m super excited to get my proofs and start submitting!

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!

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!

Brandon is professional, patient, and talented. I felt comfortable throughout our entire photo shoot and am very happy with the results. He has an intuitive way of relaxing you and encouraging the best out of you for the photos, and is collaborative and open to your suggestions and thoughts. Highly recommend!

Brandon is the person for your head shots! He goes above and beyond. He's meticulous in walking you through the process, achieving your desired outcome and communicating how that will be achieved. Periodically through out the shoot he''ll show you the shots that have been taken to ensure it's true to the intention of your pictures. Brandon's experience, professionalism, talent and personable demeanor make's the process a snap. All while done in a respectful and safe environment. A total no brainer.

Brandon Hart Photography has been an ally countless times over several years for my clients at my talent agency Moving Pictures Talent & Entertainment Group. In addition to constantly delivering above industry standard headshots for my actors, he has also shot me and I found him to be an absolute pleasure to work directly with. I even picked up a few tips from him. I always recommend Brandon as highly talented shooter who is collaborative, patient, kind and professional. He has an amazing ability to capture the essence of the subject again and again. I can’t wait to use Brandon Hart Photography for future sessions.
