Introduction: So, you need a headshot! You're looking for a new job, or trying to stand out and look like an expert in your current field. If you're anything like a majority of people I've photographed over the last 7 yrs...you probably don't know what to do when a camera is pointed at you. This will cause you to look scared, sad, or even mean in your headshot. Having your picture taken is awkward, and tough. It's hard to look good in pictures, but it doesn't have to be! My name is Mike Sansone, and I am a headshot photographer in Chicago. I've developed a headshot process that will help you look like the confident, competent professional you are. You don't have to be photogenic to get a good headshot...you just have to be yourself. I will help you relax, have fun, and I'll teach you how to look good in pictures! You're going to leave with the best headshots you've ever had. Feel free to check out my website. You can view pricing, check studio availability, and book/pay for your shoot all online. If you have any questions...don't hesitate to give me a call/text, send me an email, or talk to me through the chat box on my site at any time. Thanks so much for your time, and consideration. I look forward to getting you in front of my camera soon! MIKE

Very professional and was ready to work when I got there; the process for narrowing down professional-looking photos was effective and efficient.

Corporate Headshots

Mike was super funny, professional and even taught me how to turtle. He's by no means your typical mall photographer and is definitely worth the extra Benjamin.

Corporate Headshots

My husband's experience with Mike was wonderful. He came home from his appointment with Mike saying that his office space was incredible & Mike was vety professional and really knew what he was doing when it came to photography. His photos were the best headshot photos I think I've ever seen!

Mike has a great way with people, putting them at ease to get excellent results. We appreciate his flexibility and desire to get shots that people can truly be proud of. I've met many headshot photographers over the years, and I consider Mike to be among the best of them.

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

    I only have one session price for individuals in my studio. And then each image is purchased separately. So the final cost is totally up to you, and how many images you like/require. For groups, and on location rates...please contact me for a custom estimate.

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

    I am personally trained by one of the best headshot photographers in the world, Peter Hurley. I am currently one of his Associate Photographers here in Chicago. I am also a Mentor for The Headshot Crew.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started out as an actor. Photography was a hobby of mine. One of my theatre friends needed headshots for upcoming auditions, and she asked if I would take them for her. I had no idea what I was doing, but I did it. Then I had another friend ask me..and another..and another. Well I decided if I was going to keep doing this..I should know what I am doing. I came across the work of NY headshot photographer Peter Hurley. Through his personal teaching..I now am where I am today.
