General Questions

The price for headshots in this area varies drastically. You can spend a lot, or you can spend not very much. I consider my pricing to be somewhere in the middle of the going rate for this area. Maybe even a bit above the average. When it comes to quality, however, I feel my headshots are a premium.

Simple answer. Yes.

Headshots are a necessary tool that one can use to improve their life through their career. If a new headshot helps you get that new job you have been searching for, then the value of your headshot is high.

Headshots are an investment. The upfront cost might seem expensive; however, if a premium headshot helps land you your dream job, then it’s money well spent.

My pricing for corporate jobs varies depending on the scope of the job. I recommend contacting me to discuss your requirements. After this, I can provide a quote.

The simple answer is yes, but I don’t recommend it. An effective headshot has many essential aspects, such as lighting, composition, and expression. Most individuals do not have the necessary tools and training to do this. I firmly believe headshots are something that should be left to professionals.

The simple answer is maybe. The reason I say this is that it varies so much for each person. A couple of things to consider when it comes to expression. What is your profession? What is your personality? If you are an actor, what role are you casting for? Something I will always say is that you should look confident and approachable.

For most photographers’ pricing is likely a combination of time and skill.

Time – how long will it take to complete the job?

Skill – doing professional headshots is a skill that takes years to develop. Also, let’s not forget overhead and expenses.

Solid colors or shades typically work best. Try to avoid anything with hectic patterns or logos, and I recommend that you bring a variety of clothing styles (for example, bringing only tank tops is not advisable). For corporate and business groups: suits, ties, fine shirts, and other dress clothes can be interchanged to create various professional looks. The more you bring, the more ways you can present yourself.

In the electronic/digital world we now live in, so much business is conducted without the involved parties ever meeting each other. One thing that hasn’t changed is that humans are very visual and like to see who they are dealing with. Your headshot isn’t only your profile photo, it represents your personal brand.

It depends, and you probably already know. Some people only need one for their online profile, but some need more than one. For example, many of my clients use different headshots on their LinkedIn profiles than on their websites.

This depends on so many factors. A couple of things to consider are:

What is the average current price of headshots in your market?

What is the quality of your product compared to other photographers in your market?

Once you have this information, you can make an educated guess on where to start.
