Headshot photography. It seems so simple.
Yet in reality it is a very complex art form.
There are so many things to worry about. Like lighting. And camera angle. And the ever-elusive perfect facial expression.
And these days, great headshots can make or break a career. Professional websites and social media pages all rely on flawless headshots to make the right impression.
So the pressure is on to get them just right.
There’s so much to learn about the art of headshot photography…and so little time to learn it.
It seems that no matter how much time you put into a shoot, the photos don’t seem quite right. The lighting is off, the camera angle is unflattering, or you end up with a weird facial expression.
Maybe you’ve tried a variety of different lighting methods. But after experimenting, you are afraid that the skills you truly need may be too expensive for your modest budget.
You’ve probably tried editing post-production in Lightroom, only to find that the results you envision still elude you.
Many photographers undertake their own “on-the-job” training as they master the art of great headshot photography. But do you really want to take that risk?
Not to mention, almost every new skill you try seems to require different gear and equipment. And that can get pricey after a while.
And classes and workshops are so time-consuming. Until now.

A variety of techniques will be presented, including the use of off-camera flash, a studio strobe, and constant LED lights.
Most importantly, you will learn exactly how to “direct” your headshot to get the most flattering pose, angle, and facial expression from your subjects.
Among the strategies presented in this workshop: how to get the best look from your subjects through the process of “squinching,” or narrowing their eyes slightly. How to elicit smiles that look natural rather than staged.
And how to guide subjects into poses that accentuate the most flattering angle of their jawline.
These techniques are easy to learn, and they’ll give you consistently great results every time.
