Tucson Headshots Photographer
I have been doing portrait photography, in various forms, for over twenty years. I began offering head shots in Tucson, three years ago. It is a facet of my business that I have come to thoroughly enjoy! I love meeting new people and coming up with photos that not only defines their personality, but makes them look their very best! If you are not completely happy with your images, you do not have to pay me a penny.

Head Shot Photos
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. See samples below.

People need head shots for personal use, 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, careers and walks of life have passed through my doors.

There are two ways I can take them for you. 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.

Head Shots - The Changing Background

The white walls in my photo room comprise the backdrop for the majority of the 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.

In the two samples, below, I illustrate the changes I made from the naturally pre-existing background color (inset photos) to a color theme, chosen by my subjects. I call this, making a faux background of a faux background. When requested, I perform these changes post-shoot, in my digital dark room, (aka. Photoshop). If you have a specific background color scheme in mind, please provide a sample image, if possible. I will implement a background to match your selected images. Many studios that use artificial backgrounds cannot even promise you that.
