Althought flash (studio) lighting is an option for headshots, wherever possible, I prefer to shoot in a natural light setting. This tends to be less overwhelming for the person being photographed, which inevitably allows for a more natural posture and pose. Several photographs are taken of each individual, after which they can view and select the photograph which they would like to have touched up as their professional headshot. For most people, the idea of a headshot can be quite daunting, and as a photographer I understand this. I believe in creating a professional, yet friendly environment in which the person being photographed can feel relaxed and as natural as possible in their poses, allowing for a photograph that presents in the same way.
Each individual’s selected photograph will touched up and enhanced to show off their best features, without loosing the true character of their face.
