Professional Headshots for Business, Corporate & Talent
Cheap is expensive. Choosing price over quality can cost more if it takes a second (or fourth, so we’ve heard) attempt to create an image that will attract your next client. We are satisfaction guaranteed, and shoot for more than “good enough”, we create appealing, authentic images of trustworthy you!
When I hear “I just need something for LinkedIn” I know that my work in the world is not yet complete. LinkedIn is a powerful tool that allows your next potential client to see who is on the other side of a resume. What are the unconscious “tells” of your micro-expressions conveying to your next potential employer or client?
Bad photos can cost elections, knowing that first-time voters might get blurry-eyed by the bullet-points, and go with their gut instincts when they check a box to seat or unseat you. If you “just need” an ID photo to show what you look like, I recommend going to Costco. Ask for a passport photo - mine was only five bucks for four copies!. If you’re looking for a relationship-building image that conveys who you truly are - I’d love the chance to prove you landed at the right place.
Still not sure which session to book? Block off 5-10 min. and we’ll give you a ring to answer your questions.

In case you're interested...
After years in school darkrooms, I found an AMAZING mentor that rarely left his studio. Eventually, he made me this over-the-top offer of trust.
"I want you to have (inherit) my business, with one condition, that you stay in Pendleton". I declined, saying "I'll have to pass, because I could never be 'stuck in the studio - I'm an outside shooter.'"
He persisted - "You can do it differently than me, and hire someone to stay in the studio while you go out."
Stubbornly, I couldn't agree, and declined. He was 70, I was 21, so I knew everything, right?..
WRONG!.. Look at where I am and look at what I am doing. He saw my award-winning future long before I did. I had to build it all from trust, but it was made so much easier by his guidance and daily, one-on-one training. "You'll learn." He would say every other time I screwed up. His gentle alternative to an "I told you so" or grumbling. And those two words I heard CLEARLY in my head when those errors impacted my checkbook instead of his.
He has since passed, but I think of him every time I'm locking my studio door en route to a destination shoot. (and yes, I do the studio sessions as well). Yes, my dear mentor - I learned!

Campaign and Editorial Sessions
ELECTION PHOTOGRAPHY - Portrait, Lifestyle & EDITORIAL all in one
Successful election by your fellow citizens takes a great deal more than the trust of those who know you. Trust requires an image (by all sense of the word) that will speak to those you have yet to meet.
Reading your impressive credentials in a voter pamphlet or marketing materials can all be checked away if your image is unpolished. To many voters, seeing a version of you that was simply nervous before the camera can unfortunately work against your financial supporters.
Brian is a master at coaching you to the most comfortable, authentic and trustworthy version of yourself. The one that gets elected!*

IMPORTANT: If you’re searching the terms headshots near me or even photographers near me, our address will appear as headshots in Lake Oswego, headshots in Tigard or Headshots in Portland. (SEE MAP ON CONTACT PAGE to see why) We’re just off of I5 and one exit south of 217. In short - just trust your GPS if it changes the city on you. : ^)
Just don’t let the Lake Oswego address scare you - it’s a myth that photographers in 97035 or 97034 are all more expensive. In fact, you should book before I discover that I should be charging more! - HA! - Sensibly priced, consistent five-star reputation for exceeding your expectations, and I’m always trying to out-do myself. Scroll down a screen or two, to see videos explaining the process. When you book with our LIVE CALENDAR, you’ll receive even more helpful preparation info.
