Tucson Headshots - Schedule a Sitting

Congratulations, on taking the first step to improving your image! I would love to take your headshot portraits for you! I offer packages, with a starting price of just $39, plus tax. See my Headshots Prices page, for full details.

I have been in business for twenty years. My home based office and studio is located in the northwest corner of Tucson. It is an unconventional studio setting, one, my customers frequently tell me, feels much warmer and comfortable, than any studio they have been to, in the past. Get directions to Paul Van Helden Photography.

To schedule a sitting, please call me at 520-744-2067 or just fill out this form.

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.

Paul, thank you for the time that you took with me this morning to get the photos just right. I was not looking forward to the sitting as I usually don't like photos of myself, but your calm, professional manner and your peaceful home put me at ease. I am grateful to you! Sincerely, Julena

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, below the chest, are generally not included in the photos. However, that does not mean we cannot step outside these defined lines, 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.


Paul is a wonderful photographer! He provides a comfortable and relaxed setting that allows you to be you. His keen eye for lighting and creative energy produces beautiful photos for any occasion. I was very lucky to find him for my photo shoot. Thanks, Paul! ~ Steve

Natural Light and Traditional 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 Headshots Deals, which is what most people do.

The laid back atmosphere of my home studio is one my customers regularly tell me, feels much more comfortable than any studio they have ever been to. Where I once used window lighting, predominantly, now I also use traditional studio lighting for headshots and other portraits.

During the day, I will use classic window lighting or traditional studio lighting techniques, whatever it takes to obtain the best results. In most cases, however, I will utilize a combination of both. For evening appointments, it is all studio lighting.

For backdrops, I offer black, white and two popular shades of blue. Additionally, for a creamy white look, I frequently use the bare walls in my studio. Beyond that, if you require a more specific look for your backdrop, I can create it, post-shoot. Learn more.
