Professional headshots for all.

Chances are, you are looking for a professional headshot that embodies your personality. Something that modernizes your LinkedIn profile. A headshot that matches the role you have or sets you up for the one you desire. You want to connect with others on a different level.

You have come to the right place.

Great headshots take you places.

Building beneficial, long-lasting personal and business relationships start with a connection. First impressions often determine what direction those connections go.

Focusing on the little details
of a professional headshot.

As your headshot specialist, you can leave the small stuff to me. By combining the features and angles you were born with along with some authentic expressions, your confident eyes and genuine smiles will take you many miles. It’s pure poetry.


Your hair part matters.

Whether your hair is short, long, or gone, we are going to use it to our advantage to search out your best angles.

Wide-eyed was never a good look.

Make sure your eyes are singing all the right notes. People often determine if you are friend or foe in a first impression just by looking at your eyes.

Cheesy grins add zero energy.

Leave the elementary school smiles in elementary school. Layering a confident look from your eyes and adding in a friendly and approachable smile that is unique to you equals a fantastic headshot.

Techniques that highlight you.

Your expression is a large piece of the headshot puzzle, but getting you on all the right angles while using simple techniques to accentuate your features will ensure you are headshot-ready. It’s a master class on looking amazing.

Awesome clients speak volumes.

Stacy: “Ian is AMAZING!! I have dreaded the day that I would be required to submit a headshot and that day finally came. After reading many reviews and seeing his online galleries, I decided to move forward. Ian made me feel at ease and taught me some simple techniques to improve the way I photographed. Don’t skimp and try to take a headshot with your iPhone, go to Ian.” | More

John: “I cannot recommend Ian enough. He immediately puts you at ease, strikes up a conversation to remove your anxiety, and gets to work. I was surprised at how easy the photography part was, and how daunting the task of choosing the right prints can be! I went in wondering if I could get even one that I liked, and ended up struggling with limiting my selection to five!” | More

Amy: “Ian is excellent at what he does. If you are somebody who doesn’t like having their picture taken then Ian is the right photographer for you. He immediately sets a fun and relaxed atmosphere which results in authentic images. I typically do not write reviews but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share my positive experience.” | More


My name is Ian (obviously).

“If you would rather have teeth pulled than get a headshot, I am here to ease your fears. I have perfected a system that will make your headshots stop people in their tracks. From the moment we connect until you’re delivered the goods, my refined headshot experience will leave you walking with an extra bounce in your step. Wear comfortable shoes.”

When is the last time you loved a professional headshot?

Most people never have. Why? Bad hair day. Tired. Blank expressions. Questionable clothing choices. Only had three minutes to get the shot, with no direction from the photographer. The list goes on. What if I told you all of these issues could be resolved in front of my camera?

It’s totally true.

Get your prep sheet.

Upon booking, you’ll receive a downloadable tips sheet that will get you ready to rock and roll. The devil is in the details and you have found a headshot photographer who knows how to prepare for them.

I can help take care of the rest.

There is a saying in the headshot business, “Let me be your mirror.” What you think looks great in front of the camera usually isn’t a good look at all. Allow me to get you dialed in with your best angles, expressions and overall vibe.

Google perfection.

“Ian is way beyond photographer, which is part of the magic behind his incredible photos.”

“Ian has a passion for what he does and it shows in every interaction during a shoot.”

“I never thought the experience of having a headshot could be both educational and fun.”

Two types of headshot services.

Studio sessions for individuals and remote corporate teams are an incredible experience, and I love packing things up and taking the show to offices, too.

You keep talking about this experience.

Sessions with me are a two-way street. Throughout our time together – before, during, and after your session – you will have plenty of say in the direction we go. This is your headshot we’re talking about here.

1 | Prior to your session.

It’s the old grade school saying, “Proper preparation prevents poor performance.” Great headshots happen when you’re comfortable with the process. Read more about headshot session preparation that will put you well ahead of the curve.

2 | Take pictures.

Sounds simple, right? Actually, it really is. Beyond taking photos, there are a number of other session features that will get you squared away. You will soon see just how easy this headshot thing can be.

3 | Image reviews.

This is where the rubber meets the road. Throughout your session, we will pause to review your images on a computer. This is where you’ll see my simple headshot techniques in action as we work towards your perfect headshot.

4 | You’ve got mail.

The other half of the headshot magic happens after your session. Upon selecting your winners, they will be professionally retouched and made ready for primetime. Your headshot game will be unstoppable.
