Model & Acting Head Shot Photography
Modelling and Acting headshots can span across so many industries and needs.
Typically they both require multiple looks from the individual.
We will most likely do 2 - 4 looks, both in studio and on location.
The shots will most likely be head close up and 3/4 body.
Here are some examples.
Corporate & Business Head Shot Photography
For many businesses, straight forward seamless backdrop is perfect for their staff headshots.
Typically this look uses a white, black, or grey background.
For others, locations with more texture for a background are good.
You can see an example of both the corporate headshots looks below.
It's just a head shot, so what's the big deal?
Whether you are a business professional, an actor, a model, or just need a fresh head shot, chances are that being in front of the camera isn't where you are most comfortable.
Many people that have come to me for head shots express that getting their picture taken causes them to become nervous or anxious, and is generally unpleasant.
Photography can be a very intimate view of what you really look like, especially head shots.
In our world of highly edited, air brushed, and touched up pictures in advertisements, magazines, and video, we've become very self conscience about the way we look.
You do not have to feel that way.
I am here to help you overcome those feelings in order to capture your best look.
What is the secret to getting the best head shot?
The key to getting your best look is making sure you are comfortable, happy, and taken care of.
If you are in a positive head space, your body language will express that, and I can capture that essence.
"Taken care of" means we are going to do our best to make you look your best.
I do that by bringing in professional hair and makeup artists. These women and men are extremely talented at what they do, and always have your best interests in mind.
Age, height, and weight are not an issue, we can and will make you look your best.
"I contacted Leah as we needed some head shots for our company. She was great with everyone,very easy going and always very helpful and she's a great listener. She definitely listens to what you want and delivers." - Maria, Southern States
I do my own hair and makeup, why hire someone else?
"I liked that she would take several pictures and then let me review them so I could adjust my poses as needed. I also had Beth do my make-up which I was glad I did. Beth did a much better job than I ever could have. She listened well to what I wanted and was happy to make adjustments as I requested them."
- Molly S.
Most likely, you've done your own hair and makeup almost every day of your life.
I'm sure you know exactly how to accent your own features the way you want.
Once you are under the lights and in front of the camera, you may find you look a little different that you anticipated.
Enter my hair and makeup team.
They are professionals with years of experience working along side the camera.
