Headshots in Tucson Paul Van Helden Photography

Headshot Photographer of Tucson
I am a professional photographer of over twenty years. Headshot photography is a new service I introduced into my business two years ago and has become something I thoroughly enjoy doing. No matter what type of headshot photos you are looking for, if you are not one-hundred percent satisfied with the finished product, you do not have to pay me a penny.

Head Shot Photos

Headshots are basic portraits that concentrate on a persons head, neck and upper shoulders. The area of the body, from the chest down, is generally not included in the photos. The main reason people have them taken is for professional, career related media, such as business cards, books, articles, portfolios, websites, Facebook and Linked In profiles etc. People from all walks of life have passed through my doors.

There are two ways you can have Headshots taken. I can come to your home or business location and take them there, or you can do what most people do, which is to come to my home studio. I actually prefer to call it, my photo room. My photo room is somewhat unconventional, in that I do not work with standard traditional looking backgrounds. Instead, I affectively produce the same professional results, by using *white walls and natural window lighting techniques. This process involves reflectors and gobos. It is a setting that feels very comfortable to my subjects. (*My white background can be rendered blue, green, brown or just about any other color, under the sun. See samples below.)

Head Shots ~ The Changing Background

The white walls in my photo room comprise the backdrop for the majority of headshots I take. The hues on these walls are influenced by the varying degrees of the natural light that filters through my windows, at different times of day, and the diffusion materials I use. It is also influenced by the colors worn by my subjects. If my subject happens to be wearing purple, the background can appear slightly purple. The same thing can occur with just about every other color, except black and white. These effects are part of what makes my photo room a magical place for headshot photography. That said some of my customers require a more specific look for their background.

The two samples, below, illustrate changes I made from the naturally existing background color (inset photos) to a color theme, chosen by my clients. I like to refer to this process, as making a faux background of a faux background. When requested, I perform these changes post-shoot, in the so-called digital dark room. If you have a specific background color in mind, please provide a sample image, if possible.
I will implement a background color change for each image you select for editing, totally free of charge. It truly does not get any better than that!
