Acting Headshots

Steve had a relaxed presence that put me at ease when arriving to the studio. The studio was small, but was the equipment was very nice. I utilized his services to get acting headshots, and before beginning to take the pictures, he had a handy book that visually showed how good and bad headshots look. He effectively guided me through various poses, and I had a lot of fun the whole time! Oh, and the photos looked fantastic in the end. Overall, what you'll get from working with Steve is a kind and talented photographer who'll make sure you're getting the bang for your buck.

Corporate Headshots

Steve was prompt to reply to my request for a professional head shot. I reviewed his website and knew right away that he is a talented photographer and could provide the professional outcome I needed. I also learned that he also does a variety of other photo service venues; family photos, and even animal sessions for our four legged family . On the day of our shoot, Steve had arranged an appointment for a make-up professional's services for me. Bottom line, I felt comfortable during the photo session, and the resulting head shots were just was I had envisioned.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Base pricing for headshots and portraits includes up to three final images, delivered via download. Additional images and expert retouching are available for an additional fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to have at least a phone chat before each session so I can really understand what my client is looking for. For some engagements, I'm happy to do an in-person visit to meet with my clients, understand their needs, and plan the best possible shoot.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am constantly studying the work and advice of the industry leaders---the ones who are super creative and at the top of their game. Through conferences, seminars, books, and online classes, I strive to always improve my lighting techniques, posing, retouching, and more. In this business you never stop learning. I've got 1000's of hours of study and training under my belt.
