I frequently meet people that just want good head shots for Facebook and LinkedIn. They need their images delivered digitally as it's for social media and not for printing. They also don't need a lot of different images.
To meet that need I have a head shot package that is $200 and includes 3 digital images with an online license. The online license means that you can freely use the images on your website or on social media pages, however you are not authorized to print unless you print through my site. I always provide printing options at a reasonable price through a professional lab. The head shot images will not be watermarked and are in a high resolution so that you can use them as you need to online. All images that I deliver are post processed to bring out your best features.
Recently I worked with Cindy who wanted some updated head shots. I met her at her house and we worked in her backyard. There are different kinds of looks for head shots and I like to discuss them in advance. If someone is doing something very corporate they may want a basic studio look with a white background. I can easily do that by placing a white panel behind them to create a basic background. This method is also very useful when the weather is bad and the house is small and crowded. Sometimes I like to use it to remove all possible distractions, after all a headshot is about the person and the last thing you want are a lot of distractions competing for attention.
Some people will choose environmental portraits where we do incorporate the environment however the focus is still on the person.
Cindy chose a natural look and feel for her images. We shot in her backyard and I brought in additional lighting to add dimension to the images and to help her eyes to fill with light. She chose two outfits one more casual so that she would have two looks in the final delivery. Her hair and makeup was perfect and we had a lot of fun creating these images while her son played happily in the yard and her husband watched from the deck.
Here are the 3 final images that she chose
When I create a headshot package I will also create copies that are formatted for LinkedIn at no additional charge. LinkedIn has very specific sizing guidelines and I want your image to go up without any loss of quality.
The time spent is about 30 minutes to capture the images and I deliver the finished product within 2 weeks but usually less than a week. If interested in head shots please email or call and I am happy to accommodate. I work within the Northern VA/ DC area.
