San Diego Professional Headshot Photography

As Important as Your Email and Business Card

Professional headshot photography is probably the most common service I provide in the Southern California region. A professional portrait is more than simply a photo of you in front of a pretty backdrop. The energy of a location, the wind in our hair, the sun casting a perfect glow… all of that tells a story and affects the final energy a photo conveys to the viewer. My favorite places to shoot are natural ones and being mobile allows me to draw inspiration from the spirit of new locations. 

First Impressions

Chances are that you see so much professional headshot photography around you that you understand its importance. Such a simple little thing; a small avatar on LinkedIn or your website. But that quick glance contacts and potential clients make when looking at your business card or website is your only chance to make a first impression. It is of utmost importance to me that your headshot says exactly what you want it to say.

Setting up in your workspace or conference room is sometimes the most efficient approach. But whenever we can, I prefer to move the shoot outdoors where we can utilize natural light. Living in Southern California gives us the privilege of utilizing the greatest photo studio of all.

My clients and I have had the most consistent success in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego, but I’m happy to meet you anywhere within the San Diego region. The sessions often take about 20 minutes. The photo selection process along with post production and photo editing can take a week or two.
