Headshot/ Portfolio Photography London Ontario
Business Headshots are usually done because of a need for an updated photo for a business card, website or other advertising. It is so important in our world now where everyone shops online for products and services to make a good first impression with high quality images. No matter what you are selling, as people buy people, making a good first impression could mean all the difference! I keep headshots and model portfolios as quick and easy for you as possible but are some things to keep in mind for your business headshot London Ontario photography session.
Typically these sessions are done in studio but if you are going for a less formal approach they can be done outside at a location of your choice.
If you are doing the headshot session because of a need for a certain event, the thing to think about is when you would be able to do the session around your schedule, the sooner the better to allow time for editing the images. Also think about if you plan on drastically changing your hair or other features anytime in the near future as it might be better to wait until you have done that so that you are still recognizable in your photo. These sessions typically have a quick turnaround time for editing.
Hair and Makeup
I cannot stress the importance of having a high quality hair and makeup artist for your headshot session. A professional will be able to bring out your features and will know how to apply the makeup so that it will look good on camera but also keep it natural enough so that you are still recognizable. Fake tanner is a personal choice but I recommend not to use it unless you have had a trial run and know how your skin reacts to it, nothing worse than having to have the whole shoot in black and white because you don’t like the colour of your skin!
I recommend that you have a few options in regards to clothing so that if a certain option is not really working, you have another choice as a backup. Generally, I would start with something a bit formal like a suit, and suggest you bring along a change of tie or shirt for variety in the shots. Bringing a casual outfit is optional. For colours, I recommend that you bring at least one black outfit and one outfit that is uniquely “your style” as far as the colour is concerned.
Most of the time if a prop is being used in a headshot session it has a relation to your profession, for example if you are a baker bringing a tray of cupcakes and cute apron or if you are a musician bringing your musical instrument.
What to do with the images
You will receive both the high resolution and low resolution images. Headshot and product sessions are the only types of session that I don’t require the image with the watermark to be used online, however if you want to send a link back to my website I would be very grateful. These images can be used in advertising, on business cards and on social media.
– Bringing a variety of accessories can add variety to your session
– Be sure to send me any requirements that you may have- for example sometime it is required that the portrait be taken on a white background, or that you need a full body shot.
– Yes, I give receipts so that it can be claimed as a business expense!

Model photography London Ontario Testimonial
I'm always nervous meeting new photographers but Erin was super-friendly and easy going which made the shoot a lot of fun! She was professional and had wonderful ideas to capture beautiful winter scenes. I was so happy with the finals! She creatively used all that we had at our disposal, from snowy trails, bare branches, the open river with ducks, and even someone's husky! (with their permission of course!) It's clear that Erin's extremely talented and passionate about photography - if minus 20 weather doesn't affect this Aussie's zest for a shoot, I doubt anything will. I highly recommend her if you're in need of an amazing photographer.
