HEADSHOTS or PORTRAITS
Damion definitely made his name photographing portraits and has won many awards for his portrait work but with his modern style of headshot he quickly became one of the most sought after photographers for head shots in both the US and the UK. He genuinely loves to shoot both headshot and portrait photography.
During a headshot session, we keep the camera up close and personal. All the images are captured from the chest up while we concentrate on coaching you toward your best expression. That's something that Damion is extremely good at, he will coach you through the entire process to not only capture superb photos to to help you understand what looks good in camera. Backgrounds can be changed to add different look and we welcome multiple wardrobe changes too.
Headshots are shot from the bottom of the rib cage up to emphasize the "head shot"
Portrait sessions allow Damion to get a little more creative to give a broader range of looks. You will get portraits and headshot styled images in this shoot but Damion will vary the lighting and locations and backdrops to give you everything you might need for your own marketing and branding purposes.
Portraits will capture full length, 3/4 length, waist up and headshots too.
ABOUT THE SESSION
We photograph our in-studio headshot sessions out of a Baton Rouge studio near Sherwood Blvd close to the I-12. We like our clientele to bring a variety of clothing options and generally shoot a handful of different looks throughout each session.
Damion will be shooting tethered to his laptop so that we can discuss the images as they are captured. The ability for us to look at the shots as we go helps us make any adjustments and redirect the focus of the session to account for anything we feel you could additionally benefit from along the way.
Damion understands the excitement and sometimes the need to have your headshot photos quickly, he also has complete confidence in his work straight out of camera. So with this in mind your online gallery will be available for you to view in less than 24 hours from the end of your photo shoot, this gallery will be straight out of camera.
You can then look through your gallery and share your gallery with others if you wish to choose the images you would like to keep. Once you have chosen your images, they will be sent to our professional retouchers who will polish them up and get them back to us usually in 48 hours.
You will then be able to download the retouched images from your online gallery. So in just 73 hours you could have your photo shoot, see all your images, have the keepers retouched and have them downloaded to your computer. Pretty amazing, right?!
Bring a selection of colors and necklines. Jewel colors work fantastic on camera, think of Ruby reds, Emerald greens, Sapphire blues, Amethyst purples. Also think of any colors that make your eyes pop and compliment your hair color most. Jewelry for pageants needs some bling, just try to avoid large flat earrings as they act as big mirrors with photography lights.
We will have a steamer in the studio to help with any wrinkling.
What is the difference between a "Look" and an "Outfit"?
A look is usually something that can be changed quickly with little effort, it could be the removal of a tie or a change of earrings, maybe the addition of a jacket or even a quick change of a shirt or blouse. An outfit is usually more involved and involves changing of many elements at one time.
We do have a bluetooth speaker at the studio and encourage you to bring any playlists that you enjoy listening to. Music can help you relax. Obviously we will not have the music crazy loud so we can communicate but background music can certainly help you be yourself during the shoot.
