Getting A Professional Headshot Is Not As Bad As Going To The Dentist Or Is It?

It's amazing how many people reference the dentist office when showing up for a headshot. However, after a few snaps of the camera and a view of some of the images that are being captured, the comparison to the dentist quickly goes away.

There are no drills, no staff in medical attire and no hands in the mouth. The studio strobes are a quick burst of light, but it's better than the dental light shining constantly.

I get it. Most people do not want to be in front of a camera any longer than they need to. That is one reason that I have created a very efficient system at our North Raleigh Studio that is designed ideally for headshot clients.

Headshots are a core specialty of ours. Our studio is not designed for large families, brides, etc. As a matter of factor, our focus is on commercial and corporate work including headshots used for LinkedIn profiles and other professional use. Although the majority of individuals that come to use for a headshot are business professionals, we do have individuals come to us who need acting headshots which are shot tighter than business headshots.

The headshot below was taken outside our North Raleigh Studio on a rainy day. It was actually raining when I took the shot below. I was able to still take the shot because of an outdoor overhang that we have outside our studio. The lighting is so vibrant because I use strobe lighting balanced with daylight along with shallow depth of field to create a headshot that is vibrant.
