San Diego photographer, Laurens Antoine on headshot equipment

Some people say it's just the photographer that counts and not the equipment. We disagree. Sure, no amount of equipment will make a poor photographer take good pictures, but in the right hands, top equipment makes a significant difference.

Cameras and lenses.

We shoot with two types of cameras. 35mm Canon: (1Ds Mark 3 and 1Dx) and Hasselblad's H4D-50. The Hasselblad system with lenses runs almost $70,000 so we do charge a premium to use it, but for most headshots it isn't necessary.

Lighting and modifiers.

We have a very large arsenal of lighting with just about 100 different lights, and an equal amount of light modifiers. There are about two dozen "go-to" lights and modifiers we use for headshots, plus our travel kit of another dozen. Brands are: Profoto, Speedotron, Photogeneic and Dynalite.


A note on security in case you get any ideas (after all, this can be seen publicly):

Cameras and lenses are kept off-site when closed. Our security system includes over a dozen night vision cameras that all send the video signal off-site and are powered by an 24 hour battery. The image are sent by a proprietary RF system and cutting the Internet off won't stop them from being received. Moreover, much of the equipment has GPS tracking built in and also needs security codes to be turned on. If you come in, you will be caught!
