Tucson Headshots - Schedule a Sitting

Congratulations, on taking the first step to improving your professional image! Of course, just visiting my website does not count for anything, unless you actually follow through to the next big step, which is to schedule a much needed appointment with me. It is easy! All you have to do is set up a sitting.

I am a full time photographer of twenty years. My relaxed home-based studio is located on the northwest side of Tucson. Tucson headshots is a service I began providing a little over four years ago. However, I have been studying the way light falls and can flatter faces much longer than that.

Custom Headshots

We are all created equally, but as unique individuals, with varying purposes and missions in life. Similarly, it has been my experience every face, every person, requires special treatment. There is no one magical formula of posing and manipulating light that will work across the board with everyone. However, if you will allow me the opportunity, you can bet I will put every year of my experience into finding a few formulas that will work with you. Regardless of what part of town your from, I will make your trip worth it. Sometimes the photo session is over and done with quickly. Other times it can take a little longer. In the end, the only thing that really matters to me is that you are happy. If, by some long shot, I am unable to put a post shoot smile on your face or to fully satisfy your expectations, you do not have to pay me a penny

Headshot Photos

Unless you are in a business or involved in an activity that requires them, you may not know what headshots are. There is no shame in that. The truth be told, I was there once myself. Just the word, headshots, can elicit some pretty funny looks from people. Headshots? What are those? Why not call them portraits, I am often asked.

Therefore, to clarify to those who may be unfamiliar with the term, headshots are portraits that concentrate on the upper body, from the shoulders to the top the head. Sections of the body, from chest down, are generally not included in the photos. However, that does not mean we cannot step outside these defined lines to mix it up a bit, during your photo shoot.

People need professional headshots for a myriad of reasons, such as high school senior photos, dating and social media sites or as business portraits and career related media, such as portfolios, websites, books, periodicals, business cards, etc. People of all ages, cultures, careers and walks of life have passed through my doors.

Natural Light Studio

There are two ways I can take your headshots. I can come to your home or business location and take them there, but it will most likely cost you almost twice as much. The other way would be to come to my home studio and take advantage of my Sweet Headshots Deals, which is what most people do. My home studio is somewhat unconventional. While I do offer a few backdrops, I do not work with standard traditional looking backgrounds. Instead, I achieve equally and often better results, by using white walls and natural window lighting techniques. This process involves the use of reflectors, deflectors and some artificial fill lighting. In general, it is a laid back setting that my customers frequently tell me, feels much more comfortable than sitting in the bright lights of conventional studios. However, if you require a specific look for your background, I can create it, post-shoot. Learn more.
