As a headshot photographer, I work with real people from the classical music and business world. They are not professionally trained fashion models and most of them feel uncomfortable on front of the camera.
The major difference between an amateur portrait photographer and skillful one is not only a strong knowledge of lighting and equipment, but also having skills in directing and editing.
The process of the headshot photoshoot in my studio includes a guidance on how to pose, professionally set-up lighting and equipment, shooting tethered, so clients can give me feedback during the session to ensure that we achieve the best results in short time. The crucial step of final look is retouching favorite images. Keep in mind that photographers who provide unedited images to the clients are delivering unfinished work. This is not accepted in business of professional photography.
My signature editing includes:
Improving color, contrast and sharpness
Retouching skin by clearing up blemishes and reducing wrinkles as needed
Removing flyaway hairs and adding volume to the hair if needed
- Fixing the wardrobe shoulder line, editing underarms in sleeveless headshots.
Additional editing service can be provided by request for additional cost.
