Dan Stroud Photography
2018 Top Pro
About this pro
No cheesy corporate headshots from me. I almost always use natural light to get a modern and natural look that could work for anything from your company website to your Instagram account. I've taken headshots for CEOs, Yoga Instructors, Engineers, Marketers, Politicians, and Nonprofit workers. I've been hired over 120+ times on Thumbtack and have done photography for companies like Airbnb and Dropbox. I'm confident I can work with just about anyone :) I've been a Top Pro for almost 2 years and won Thumbtack's award for one of the best photographers of 2016. Check out my work at danstroud.me I love meeting new people. Whether they work in tech like me, or an outside industry that I get to learn about. I keep the vibe easy going. Having a good conversation and getting you a great photo are both priorities.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?A basic shoot normally last 20-30 minutes and your get 20-30 headshots for you to choose from. Most of them will be ready to use as is, but I'll have you pick 2 for me to touch up a bit more. Edits include general style/exposure edits like what you see in my portfolio/website. I also routinely touch up blemishes, stray hairs, and bags under eyes for no extra charge On payment, cash, venmo, check and paypal can all work
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to follow up and ask about the industry you work in or the style you are looking for to get a better idea of how I should shoot your photo. The main part of the process is finding a location that works. I have a few outdoor spots in either SF or East Bay that I like to shoot at (for great natural light), but can also make visits to your office or home. Before the shoot, I can consult you on general wardrobe tips and answer any questions you might have.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My first photography class was in college at UC Berkeley (where I studied economics). I moved to San Francisco after graduation and took extensive photography coursework at Rayko photo studio in SOMA. But, my main training has been practice (read my answer to how I got started to find out what I mean by that).
