Portraits & Headshots

We offer quality portraiture for both professional and personal needs, including book jackets, web pages, speaking engagements, media requests and more. Traditional studio portraiture, as well as environmental and specialty portraiture at your preferred location, are both available. The service is offered during regular business hours, by appointment only.

Backgrounds

Available portrait backgrounds for portraits include the standard blue, stark white, grey, black or beige.

What to Wear

Classic fashion choices can keep portraits timeless. We recommend that you wear solid- and/or muted-colored clothing. Try to stay away from busy patterns and textured fabrics. Show your style in small accents, and save stronger colors and patterns for accessories like jewelry, scarves or ties. Keep the background color in mind when selecting your outfit to make sure it won’t clash.

We can also accommodate departments needing large number of faculty and staff portraits at once. We schedule your department in for a block (or blocks) of time, either at our studio or at a location of your choice and use consistent lighting and presentation for all shots. Rates are based on shooting 20 to 30 subjects per hour, with two to three images taken of each subject.

If the client would like individual images to be retouched, highlighted or extensive preparation done then the Standard Photography Rate should be selected.
