Choosing a location
When it comes to headshot photography, one of the aspects that matter and at the same time is something that can be kept super simple is the location of the shoot. With TNK Photo, we do all of our headshot portrait sessions on location. What does that mean for you? That means that wherever you are in the Orange County or Los Angeles area, we can make your headshot pictures happen. The reason for this is that since headshots are generally from the mid-chest area and up, we only need a small area to work with. As you see in the following examples, each portrait was done with a very clean background a very clean light.
Headshot Portrait Session Tips
One thing to keep in mind when you’re having your portrait session taken is time of day. Usually we try to keep it later in the day in order to have the most flattering lighting on you. However, with headshots there is a bit of leeway as long as you keep the headshot session in the shade. Remember, soft clean light will always look good. For the portraits above there was also another key factor which I’ll mention below
Headshot Session in Orange County
Another tip that we always mention is the angle. Meaning, the angle the camera is shooting from as well as the angle of your body. Notice how in none of the portraits above did the subject have their body directly towards the camera. That slight turn to their proffered side gives the body nice form as well as slims anyone down (even if they don’t need it). Additionally on this, our photographer was shooting the headshots slightly from above. What this does is creates a nice jawline on our subjects and makes them look more chiseled.
Headshot Photography Pricing
Another question we often get is as far as pricing for a headshot session. This varies. If it’s one headshot, one person, one look, our pricing is fairly affordable. Keep in mind this will probably be the first impression people will get of you if you’re using it for an email signature or an “about me” on your website so you want to make sure you get the best photographer for you. Check out the photographer’s website and see if that style matches the look that you want. One thing we do to make it easier is if you have a staff or others in your industry that need headshots as well, we offer a group rate at a discounted price.
