As our valued client, we want to build the utmost of trust and comfort with you. It is our goal to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and allow us a glimpse of who you really are. We want to make sure you or your subject look your best in your photos. We aim to capture that spark and bring you the very best photography we can provide.
Corporate and business portraits are for the most part done in our comfy downtown Toronto studio, but we can also bring our lights and backdrops onsite for an office photo shoot or take portraits on location at your event. Whatever your needs, we take great portraits for your business cards, website, LinkedIn, social media or for personal use.
We keep the session comfortable while keeping it moving. You pick your favourite photos, and we professionally touch them up. The rest of the photographs you still get to keep as part of the package. Discounts are available for group bookings or booking multiple clients in a day.
Consumer expectations are higher than ever in an ever crowded marketplace, and our goal is to display professional photographs that leave a lasting impact on the perceived value of your business. You care deeply about your brand and the image it portrays. It is our job to bring that image to light and to express it in the best way possible. We believe as professional commercial photographers, it is important to take the time to really understand the brand we are photographing. Your business will stand out with effective commercial photography, and we will help you to achieve this goal regardless of your industry, audience or medium.
Big day coming up? We can be on location with one or more photographer to roam and take candid and posed photos. We pride ourselves in offering something different: stunning, creative images, along with candid, photojournalistic pictures. Our studio is mobile and can be set up on location. More discounts are made available and offered when piling on the services, so if you are looking for great engagement photography, wedding photography, and videography, we can take care of you. Our studio works to capture high-end experiences, and give your occasion that special light at affordable prices.
We keep the session comfortable and fun. It is our style to blend the most desirable aspects of photo artistry, showing emotion, sophistication and dedication to create timeless cherished pieces of art to be enjoyed for generations. Pricing is negotiable on these shoots depending on your requirements.
When shooting family photos, branding, or on-site shoots back to back the number ranges wildly. We work with the timing we have with our client to ensure that they have all the great shots they need. We don’t count exposures.
On a typical individual LinkedIn portrait session in our studio we can take anywhere from 50 to 200 shots
We work with you until both you and the photographer are 100% sure you have all the looks you need. On average our full portrait session is about an hour, and you can expect to add 20 minutes if doing hair/makeup.
We have often had to come to bring our portable portrait studio on-site and shoot employees back to back at an all day conference. We have had days where we would shoot 200 happy customers back to back. Ideally we would have at least 5 minutes with every person but in a crunch we can do one pose and get one great shot in as little as 1 minute per person.
Our Toronto studio is located at Queen West. We love natural light and do a combination of studio shooting as well as natural light outdoor. That said, if you prefer to do everything in studio or everything outside we can certainly tailor the session to your taste.
Yep. Full list of our discounts are available on our discounts page. If you were referred by someone you get a free touched up shot or 10% off your session. Same offer goes to the person who referred you.
Absolutely. We are always happy to speak with your rep and shoot a look that is consistent with your company’s needs.
If we’re able to let you in early we absolutely will do that. If we’re in a session or not yet at the studio there are plenty of nearby cafes to hang out at. If you are late we will do everything we can to accommodate you but you may be cutting your session short if we have someone after you. We ask that you please call your photographer as soon as you think you may be running late.
Absolutely! You can connect your phone/iPod/whatever to our speakers via bluetooth or AUX and blast your favourite tunes. We can also put on anything you want on Spotify or any other music streaming service you enjoy.
Experience has taught us to not work with outside hair/makeup artists. We have a roster of a few super talented hair/makeup professionals who have many years of experience working specifically on portrait headshots as well as on set doing film and tv. These professionals are trained in shooting high definition images.
Alternatively, you are welcome to come to the shoot hair/makeup ready!
If you book our hair/makeup professional then you don’t need to worry about anything. It’s optional but always recommended. Our hair/makeup artist gets you set up at the start of the session and then touches up and changes your looks as needed throughout. She’ll also watch things like stray hairs, how your hair is falling in the photos, shine, etc.
Please note that hair includes styling. It does not include a wash and dry. Just have your hair clean when you come in.
If you choose to do your own makeup then bring the supplies you usually use day to day to prep for an audition.
Bring with you a couple of wardrobe options, keeping in mind the branding you are going for.
Three is plenty but you can bring more and our photographer will help you narrow it down.
For business portraits we typically recommend a suit, business casual, and maybe one more casual look. You can study what you think works for you by visiting LinkedIn. For the most part we think that professional yet approachable is the way to go.
Keep in mind that we will achieve different looks by mixing and matching the wardrobe with your hair, makeup, and different background and lighting setups. Remember, it’s not so much about the clothes… It’s about you and the energy and personality you bring from shot to shot.
You don’t need to worry about bringing different options for shoes or pants if we are shooting from the waist up. You’ll be wearing pants, but we most likely not see them in the photos ????
We won’t be seeing your shoes in headshots, but we might for branding shots and certainly with family photos. Still, if you are more comfortable and feel better in, say, high heels, then you are welcome to wear them for your headshots.
Stay away from distracting patterns and large logos. Not to worry, smaller logos can be photoshopped out.
If you think you’ll still like it in a few months’ time then feel free to bring it. Keep in mind that the focus with headshots is your eyes, so you might want to stay away from big or otherwise distracting jewellery.
Our photographer will go over all your shots and upload them to a password protected client page. You’ll be able to go on and view all your photos, and are welcome to share them with colleagues, family, etc.
We use a professional post production process to get your favourite photos looking their best. Among other adjustments, your selected photos will be cropped, colour corrected, and things like stray hairs and blemishes will be addressed.
Yes. Post production is included in the price. Number of touched up shots you get just depends on the package you buy.
Absolutely. You can always purchase additional touched up shots and you also get a bonus free touched up image with every referral!
