Tips and advice to get the best out of your next headshot and of course I'm excited to share some of my portraits as well!

Making you comfortable in front of the camera

When Chris gave the OK for our session, there was one stipulation: 'Promise me no one will see the images'. Yikes! Confidence was low and so were his expectations, but I gave him my assurance no one would see the images.


I knew he was reluctant to go straight into a headshot session so I had him bring one of his guitars. I decided we could shoot some of him playing, he could get lost in the guitar and forget about the camera. Every so often I would show him the view screen and he liked what he saw. Confidence rose and the comfort level rose and we segued to the tighter headshot session without a hitch.


If your photographer is not a good fit, choose someone who is. Great images resulting from a poor experience is a rare event. Have fun!

Say hi to Chris - a financial risk manager from Toronto. I think we managed the risk quite well.
