Our Modern Headshots
Our uber contemporary Modern Headshot features a number of unique enhancements to make you look fabulous including:
- Our unique head language and posing.
- Dynamic Lighting in our infinity wall set.
- Layer Blending Tech retouching.
- Multi format delivery.
Added together these create the best headshot money can buy, but we still price them competitively.
Body (head) language and posing:
A headshot should always send a message. The first thing we do is talk about what you want that message to be and make a list of adjectives.
Sales people want a different message than trial lawyers or physicians. The picture to the right says "approachable, caring, professional and trustworthy".
Listen to Laurens explain "head" language on ESPN
Shot against our 20 foot infinity wall up to 9 lights sculpt and contour your head while providing contrast and shadows in the perfect place to best flatter your features.
We never use on camera flash or simple strobes. Our lighting is all Profoto, Speedotron, Photogenic and Dynalite. With over 75 lights and a 100 modifiers we have exactly what will make you look your best.
It makes a huge difference!
Layer Blending Technology Retouching
Developed in New York, we are the only studio in San Diego County that does Layer Blending Tech (or LBT) retouching. This laborious hand done process can make you look as perfect as you want, without looking fake.
Each part of your face is made perfect and then blended with the original to ensure a real life look. Magazines pay up to $300 per image for this, but because of our volume we are able to include it with every Modern Headshot.
Hover your mouse over the picture to see before and after.
Multi Format Delivery
Every Modern Headshot gets delivered in multiple formats:
- Landscape with the negative space.
- Portrait oriented for when you need it.
- A ready to upload Linkedin formatted version.
We wish every website and application allowed for the landscape oriented image with you off to one side, but unfortunately they don't. That's why we also deliver a traditional crop. As a bonus we also deliver a 375x375 ready to upload Linkedin version.
Our Traditional Headshots
Our classic Traditional Headshots are a better version of regular headshots you could get elsewhere. Shot with studio lighting, and a variety of backgrounds, these are the choice for the more budget conscious, or volume operations with many employees to shoot.
You still get the benefit of all our experience, large studio, and if we are coming to your office we have a variety of muslin backgrounds and seamless papers we can bring.
Retouching is industry standard, but by that we mean industry standard for graphic shops. Not photography studios.
