    I was looking for a quality photographer for a professional portrait, but I did not want the "yearbook" style of photo. Sid Ceaser produced the style and look I was seeking, and the quality was top-notch. He was an easy person to work with and was very accommodating. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking a photographer with the skills to capture the look and feel exemplified on his web site.

    Sid did a great job of putting me at ease before and while taking the photos. I don't usually like having my picture taken, but Sid actually made it fun. And he was able to get me the proofs and final processed images quickly -- something I truly appreciated! In all, it was a wonderful experience, and I would recommend Sid to anyone looking for a head-shot photographer.

    Look no further, you have found your Photographer.
    Working with Sid was absolutely amazing. He is a true professional and a creative genius. We told him what we were looking for, and he not only completely captured the vibe but expanded on it (Hence knocking our promo pictures out of the park)! I can't say enough good things about Sid and our experience working with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

    Yes you should
    I have worked on multiple projects with Sid and each time he brings nothing but great care in his craft along with deep interest in what I’m working on at the time. Sid is not only a real pro but also an inspired artist. Michael Bellar. Musician NYC.

    Great Artistic Vision and Genuine Personality
    I went to Sid for business headshots in the fall of 2015. I have known Sid through mutual friends for about six years and have admired his portrait work. Sid has a very distinct style for his portraits and the images he created for me were very in keeping with his artistic vision. He is a very genuine, down to earth guy and puts his subjects at ease very quickly. If you are looking for a contemporary headshot or portrait for yourself and your business, I would recommend giving Sid a call.

    Awesome photographer.
    I went to Sid to do some professional and personal shots. His shots stand out from almost all I've seen and mine were the same. He's great to work with and I recommend him to everyone that is in need of a good photographer

    Everyone should have the experience of being in front of his gracious lens.
    Recently had professional head shot created by Sid for a Cd project, Sid Ceasar, did the portraiture and the album design. Sid is an artist who sculpts with light, composition, and relationship. His work is striking and it is his ability to create a safe and welcoming environment for his subjects that helps them transcend self-consciousness to bravely take center stage in the dramatic photographs he creates. Everyone should have the experience of being in front of his gracious lens.

    Beautiful, professional photos + a fun day!
    Sid dedicated an entire day to travel around to different locations to capture my high school senior yearbook photos. Everything from his attention to detail (lighting, setting) to his passion for his work made the experience both memorable and fun! He quickly produced quality images for me to look through, and I could not choose just one -- I liked them all! Not often do you find such a great mix of professionalism and friendliness, but that is what you will receive from Sid! Sid is a what I would call a rare gem, and I'd work with again in a heartbeat.

    Authentic portraits that suggest you at your best!
    I've known Sid and his work for quite some time, and asked him to shoot some portraits of my elderly father playing the cello. He learned at age 70, and I thought these would be a nice image to share with the extended family. Sid came to my house, talked to me about what I wanted and found a way to work in my living room with Dad over the course of an hour or two. He selected and processed the 7-8 best images, and presented us with the results so we could print copies. Dad was amazed at the results, commenting that he was even a little embarrassed because they made him look like he was much more accomplished a player than he was. We printed out copies to distribute among our family, and they were quite popular! Sid is great at finding ways to show people as they are in the best possible light (no pun intended), hinting at positive qualities you may not realize you had. He's easy to talk to, so don't be afraid to tell him what you are trying to achieve and he will work with you.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Studio head shot sessions are usually conducted at my photography studio in Nashua, NH. I ask clients to plan on a session lasting an hour and a half to two hours. This gives us time to chat, get more relaxed and allow good time to create superb photography. If possible, I invite any future-client to visit my studio in advance, just so we can connect. It helps break the ice and makes things a little more comfortable on the day of the actual session.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BFA in Photography from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. I have been in business since 2004. I've received awards and have been published in various magazines and photography-related websites.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Head shot photography done at my studio is a flat $300.00 per person. The best images are processed and put up online as a proof set. The client then selects their top image, which is provided as a high resolution color file, a high resolution B&W file, as well as two small, resized images ready to be dropped into social media. Images come with a non-transferable license.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always been drawn to people, and photographing people is my favorite thing to do.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with musicians and local business people looking for crisp, clean head shots. I love working with those who treat a portrait as more than a chore. We are organically creating striking visuals. Making them look awesome is what I love to do.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently reached out to two of my favorite musicians of all time; musicians that I've loved for almost 25 years, asking if I could take their portraits. They both said yes, and one of them even had me work on images for her new album. All because I took a chance, was honest and shared my story with them. It was amazing.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Please look at photographers websites and go with someone who's work really strikes you. Sometimes you'll see images and it'll take your breath away. Go with someone who's work does that to you.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Price, budget and quality/style. Personality goes a long way too :)
