Ready to get back to work!

Headshot  Amy Jones Photography
Here I am, back in my studio, and ready to get set up for your session!

The weather is wonderful and we can finally get back out in the world. One of my favorite new lighting set ups uses natural light and working partially outside. This type of set up, I believe, will be an extra safe way to do headshot sessions. Although we will need to be closer than 6 feet to shoot, I am technically outside, but the subject is inside (sounds odd I know)! Sample images of this lighting set up below.

There is also the option of being totally outside for your headshots, weather/wind etc..can make this a little more tricky but it is certainly possible if you prefer to be 6 feet apart at all times. There are a number of interesting locations right outside the studio to give us some varied backgrounds. I will also add a few samples images of this option below.

I will only have one person in the studio at any given time and will allow plenty of time for thorough cleaning in between sessions also, I am happy to wear a mask if you prefer.

Full sessions are available with multiple backgrounds (the set up described above and also classic studio set up) or a quicker mini session with just the natural light.

Everyone is different and has different wants/needs when it comes to headshots. I am happy to create a custom session just for you. Whether it’s a super fast headshot for busy realtors or a full session with multiple clothing changes for actors, I can get that done.

Just like you, I love to make appointments online! However, since we really need to get to know each other a bit, I think it’s important to have an email exchange where we can discuss what type of images you prefer and I can give you a feel for how I work. It’s painless, I promise! Just shoot me a quick email, and let’s talk about what days/times are good for you and I can get the info necessary to quote you the best price possible. Amy@AmyJPhoto.com

Commercial advertising photography

Commercial photography for website and personal branding use.

A lot of my shoots are done for commercial use, creating images that help sell a client’s service or product through their websites and social media marketing platforms. Whether you are building your own site or working with a PR firm/advertising agency, it’s important to have unique, high quality images and if at all possible, avoid using bland stock photos. Contact me if you need marketing images for your product or service. Studio or location.

Personal branding images

Since everyone needs a headshot these days for websites and social media marketing I have been doing a lot more personal branding images. Some clients want a clean, simple image done in the studio and others want to shoot at their place of business. Either way works! These sessions can be as small and simple as you would like, or they can include lots of clothing/location options for a full shoot with lots of choices.

I spent a great day with these two gentleman that own Douglas Bradley.  We shot corporate headshots in the studio as well as images of two owners meeting with their clients on location.   These images will be used for marketing and on their business website.

The lovely Laura Boswell returned for some new headshots.  Love these natural light shots done at my studio entrance.  Hair and makeup by the talented Lindsay Shields.

Campaign Poster Images

It’s always fun seeing giant copies of your photos as you drive down the road!  These lovely ladies are running for county council in my area and I get to see my headshots of them proudly displayed.   Big thanks to BigHouseSigns.com for providing me copies for my website.  Corporate headshots for advertising and promotional materials.

Environmental headshots and business portraits

An alternative to a traditional head shot for professionals is the environmental portrait.  If you are lucky enough to have an interesting work space you can incorporate the office into your photos.  Location shoots are a little more complicated but ultimately it makes for an eye catching image to promote your business.

Advertising and website headshots for business

I recently photographed a group of interior designers for their website and print advertising.  They each wanted to choose their favorite fabric from their collections as their headshot background.  Although it is not something I would typically do, they were thrilled with the mix of colors when the images were used together.

The image below was created for a health and wealth coach for her advertising and website use.  This image was shot in my studio.  We hoped to create a relaxed, casual image that she could use for a myriad of promotional materials.
