WHAT ARE BUSINESS HEADSHOTS?

Our headshots are super fast and easy portrait sessions designed to photograph multiple employees on a static background. They are businesses that just need one solid photo of a handful (or a lot of handfuls) of their employees for social media, business cards, or company websites.

 

Most smart companies realize that clients want to know who they are hiring. Having rad images of you and your employees is a great way to inject their personalities into your brand. Business headshots are mini versions of our longer portrait sessions, designed to get an awesome image of each of your employees in a short period of time. We can efficiently go through pretty big rosters of folks, ensuring everyone has a headshot they can be proud of. We offer both indoor and outdoor versions of this service.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

$250 base fee per day plus $95 per person. Volume discounts may be available for large groups. Contact us for more information.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

  • Up to 15 minutes of photo session time per person.
  • 1 fully retouched, high-resolution photo per person presented in a color with a free black and white version on request.
  • Onsite image review and selection.
  • Gray, white, black, or custom backdrop.
  • Commercial usage license.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1. We’ll chat either virtually or on the phone about your photo needs and schedule a convenient time for your shoot.
  2. Photo shoot day! We'll arrive and set up our mobile studio at your place of business (takes about 30 min) and begin photographing your team. We photograph each person for about 5 minutes and then review the images to make sure there is at least one shot our subject is happy with. If we don't nail it on the first round, we'll take them back through the process once again. We build in enough time for each person to have 3 rounds of photos. Most people need 1 or 2 rounds to find that one killer shot. We offer on site image review specifically to ensure that everyone has a shot they love before we pack up and head out.
  3. Companies can decide whether or not to allow each individual to make the final call on the delivered image, or designate one person to decide. Although it will speed up the image delivery if a decision is made on the spot, we do offer online proofing galleries so that people can have time to consider their options or make decisions remotely.
  4. Once we receive the final selections we'll edit the images and deliver the high resolution images via online gallery. Delivery times vary on a number of factors, but generally the images can be turned over within a few days of the shoot if the final selections are received quickly. If there is a particular expectation for receiving the photos, please discuss with us prior to the shoot!

FAQS

The headshot low-down.

Headshots are designed for companies that need multiple employees photographed with a consistent background. There is a shorter amount of time dedicated to each person, but we photograph a lot more faces and the pricing is based on the number of people we have to photograph. Our goal is to create one great photo of each individual. Headshots are always shot with a static background, meaning the time allotted does not allow for a location change. While we typically set up in indoor environments, we can offer these services for outdoor locations. In these situations, special circumstances may apply in consideration of lighting and weather. Unless it's been discussed before the actual shoot day, it is assumed that all headshot packages will be photographed indoors.
Sure thing! We touched upon this in the first question, but here is some more information. The biggest thing we need to factor in is timing the shoot with natural light conditions, and whether or not we’re using an existing environment as the background or setting up a backdrop. In most cases, our headshot clients elect to shoot indoors, but we have worked with companies who have preferred outdoor spots. It all depends on the look you're trying to achieve! Keep in mind that outdoor ambient lighting is not something we have any control over. So the more people we are tasked with photographing outdoors, the more variations will exist in each photo as natural ambient light changes constantly.
Our mobile studio is a multi-light configuration we've perfected for headshots that most commonly is paired with a solid color background. To provide this option for you, we need adequate space. We request open space dimensions of 12'x12' with an 8' or taller ceiling height. We’ll discuss the specifics in our consultation to make sure this is a viable option. If it is not feasible to set up our mobile studio we can explore other options.
Yes. On average we dedicate a minimum of 30 minutes (often longer) to retouching every image we turn over as a finished product. Even if the intent is to use the photo in a very small capacity, the images we provide will look just as good viewed in their native resolution (which is very, very large). Our philosophy in regards to retouching focuses more on enhancement than unrecognizable transformation. We want you to look like yourself, just slightly optimized!
Heck no. There will be no logo or text placed on the final images we deliver. The photos we create are for your advertising, not ours. We always love shout outs and credits, but we’d rather that they come from the heart than a stamp on a photo.
On the day of the shoot, we review the images we've shot with each subject to ensure there is one image in each person's set that is awesome. If the company lets each person choose we will record their selections on the day of the shoot. If this is not possible or one representative from the company is deciding which images will receive final edits then we utilize an online proof gallery. The online proof gallery is usually available within 24 hours of the photoshoot.
Through the magic of the internet. We'll give you access to a private online gallery where you will be able to download the images.
As a general rule, you want to avoid wearing the color "coral," and crazy patterns. For more specific advice on styling, hair, and makeup, we will connect you with professionals whose work we love. We're also happy to put you in touch with our stylist (additional fees will apply).
We can either issue a refund for the absent individuals or credit you for a makeup shoot. Credits expire one year from the date of the session. Makeup days are subject to the $250 base fee. If you're anticipating potential absences it may be best to underestimate the attendees and add additional people on the day of the shoot. Just be sure to give us notice in advance so that we're able to adjust our timing.
If we're able to fit them in our allotted time, and/or we don't have any other sessions immediately following yours we're happy to stay later to photograph more people. We'll simply invoice you for the additional faces. If this is something you're anticipating as potentially being a need, please let us know in advance and we can attempt to push out any appointments we may have after yours out a little bit to create a time cushion.
