How can you become “photogenic”?

95% of the people I photograph hate being photographed because they just don’t consider themselves photogenic. However, everyone has the potential to be photogenic.

The difference between a photogenic person and a person who does not consider himself to be is simply the confidence that the latter exhibits in front of the camera. And bringing out that confidence in front of the camera is my job .

No need to stress about it, just get to the studio and I’ll take care of the rest.

This is the key to success in order to create a unique headshot, bring out your personality and capture a sincere and natural expression. It’s the moment when you’re not thinking about your appearance that you at your most photogenic!

FAQ – Headshot session

DO I NEED A MAKEUP ARTIST FOR MY HEADSHOT SESSION?

If you usually wear make-up, I strongly suggest that you hire the services of a talented make-up artist with whom I have already worked with. They know exactly how to apply the type of makeup necessary to achieve professional results. She’ll make your makeup look amazing and ultimately be thrilled with your new professional headshot.

WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY HEADSHOT SESSION ?

It’s important to understand that your face is the focus in a headshot session, not your clothes or your jewelry. Keeping this in mind, I recommend that everything you wear be discreet, so we keep it simple, solid color tops as much as possible, no patterns or prints. That said, I suggest bringing at least two or three different tops that you really like

As far as jewelry is concerned, we keep that to a minimum. If you really have to wear some, small stud earrings would be best for your professional headshot session.

WILL MY IMAGES BE RETOUCHED?

Excellent lighting and coaching techniques take care of most “flaws” from the start. I retouch the chosen photos at the desired level. Of course, there are limits to what should be retouched, I want the person who sees your photo to recognize you when they meet you for the first time. Normally we get rid of what is temporary and not a part of who you are, like pimples or redness in the skin. The goal is to obtain a polished, but natural image.

We will discuss your expectations in more detail after selecting the images.

AND WHAT IF I'M NOT PHOTOGENIC?

The vast majority of people who come hate being photographed or say they are not photogenic. What exactly is a photogenic person? To be photogenic is quite simply to be confident in front of the camera. Confidence in front of the camera is one of the aspects that we will work together throughout your headshot session. Expression. Trust. Accessibility.

WHY SHOULD I BOOK YOU RATHER THAN ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER? YOU ARE NOT THE CHEAPEST.

Headshots are my cup of tea as they say. It’s the specialty I chose and I love what I do.

I will guide you throughout the session on everything you need to know. Expression, angles, positioning, hair, etc. The goal of the session is to create incredible photos, and I will take as little or as much time to get them. In addition to confidence and accessibility, you must look relaxed, competent, that you are in control. If your headshot does not contain these elements, it could harm you more than anything else. It’s the first impression people subconsciously feel when they see your photo. We end up with that perfect blend of trust and accessibility.

I JUST NEED A QUICK PHOTO, DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER PACKAGES?

No, the work needed to create an awesome headshot remains the same. I emphasize quality over quantity, which is why I do not have a time limit for my individual package. We work as a team to bring out the best in you so that your professional headshot sets you apart. Whether it’s your LinkedIn profile or for your company’s website, having a high quality headshot gives you advantages and opportunities that an ordinary photo cannot offer you.

DO YOU OFFER GROUP DISCOUNTS?

My rates are adjusted from a session of 3 or more people. You can use my cost estimation tool for a group submission whether in the studio or on site.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR HEADSHOT SESSION?

Once you get to the studio, we chat a bit and look at what clothes you have brought. Then I adjust the lighting and I start coaching you slowly while you warm up to the camera a bit. At different times, I will ask you to come and see the progress of the captured images on the computer and make sure that everything is progressing to your liking. Once we are finished with the shoot, we review the images on the computer and you choose the photo or photos you want to be retouched.

Typically, the photo session lasts between 30 minutes and two hours, depending on your needs, and 15 to 30 minutes for photo selection.

I like to talk about everything and nothing, laugh, and take pictures in a fairly relaxed atmosphere.
