Headshot session for actor John Wontrop

With a long lens and my mask on, I recently had a studio headshot session for actor John Wontrop. He tends to do a lot of “bad guy” roles and wanted a few shots that were more serious and expressive. So we set about to give him a mix of friendly commercial images as well as a character “tough guy.”

“I am letting you know that I have received all five sets of photos you sent. They look absolutely fantastic. I am 110% satisfied with the final results. Thank you for all of your work and providing an easy and hassle free process (global pandemics aside…). You will definitely be getting an email from me the next time I need headshots.” John Wontrop

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.

Actor headshots

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.

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.

Business portraits for marketing and websites

Entrepreneur Lisa Roulette recently designed her new website and I was lucky enough to work with her on this project.  She wanted simple, eye catching images.  We created a group of business portraits for marketing and website use.

Amy is wonderful.  She is not only exceptionally talented by trade but she makes the shoot experience easy and incredibly comfortable.  I am camera shy and not confident when posing or looking into the lens but with Amy’s direction and guidance we always get amazing shots that make me look like a natural.  I would highly recommend working with Amy.”   Lisa Roulette

Headshots for model, actor and producer

I recently did a headshot session for a former model turned movie producer.  I convinced him to let me shoot it square and we agreed on black and white. We also did a secondary image to be used for his IMDB page.

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.

Corporate Headshots

  Corporate headshots have become significantly more important since social media has become an everyday part of the business world.  People need/want to put a face with a name when networking.  A high quality headshot is a good investment and I try to make it quick and painless for busy professionals.  If there are 8 or more people in your office that need headshots, I can come to you
