About this pro

How does your service stand out?

The headshot work I do stands out because of the expression my clients have in their photos. This isn't by accident. I work hand in hand with them through the shoot and create a positive experience to get that expression. They look interesting, approachable and look like they can connect with you through the photo. There are two people in this gallery who admitted they hated taking photos, but you would never know it looking at their photos. There is a difference between a well photographed image and an engaging headshot. I pride myself on being able to do the latter.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love seeing my clients react positively to a shot we've captured. It's the moment I capture that shows them at their best, when I get the "I can't believe that's me!" Those are the moments I enjoy the most.

    Joel did a fantastic job! I learned that quality photography is truly an art. He can bring out the best in each person and capture it on camera. His collaborative and enthusiastic style combined with his patience and insistence on bringing out just the right qualities was exactly what I was looking for in a series of headshots to be used for various media. He is my go-to guy for quality headshots from now on! Thank you Joe!

    Very creative, relaxed, fun photo session. The care Joel showed with what to expect in the session was invaluable. The photo session as well as receiving my final professional photos were done in a timely, professional manner.

What types of customers have you worked with?
Specializing in headshots for actors, musicians, athletes, and corporate clients. Getting images that convey confidence and approachability.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I'm proud of all my sessions. I know how that sounds, but I work really hard with my clients. Not only to get them shots that they love, but to have a great experience. If they aren't happy with it, neither am I and so far that has not happened. *Knocking on wood."
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Meet with as many headshot photographers as you can. Look through their portfolios. There are a ton of them in Chicago. The right one for you is the one that can get you to a place where you can forget there is a camera in front of you and allows you to be yourself. Don't focus on price first. Remember, a headshot is an investment.
