Our Services & FAQ

Corporate Portraits

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.

Commercial and Products

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.

FAQ

Before and During the Session

How many shots do you take?

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

What if I just need one shot?

We do offer mini shoot option. Check out our Rates page to see out packages.

How long is an average business portrait session?

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.

How quick can you make a session?

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.

Can you shoot in our office? At our holiday conference?

Absolutely. Our portable studio and photographer can travel anywhere within Canada. It’s $40 travel plus parking within the GTA. We can set up in your office, conference room, anywhere with a 5ft by 5ft space.

Where is your studio located?

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.

Are discounts available?

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.

My manager/PR has specific lighting/posing in mind. Can you match this?

Absolutely. We are always happy to speak with your rep and shoot a look that is consistent with your company’s needs.

What if I'm early? Late?

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.

Can I bring my own music?

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.

Can I bring my own hair or makeup artist?

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!

What kind of hair and makeup services are provided?

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.

How many outfits should I bring?

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.

What clothing should I stay away from?

Stay away from distracting patterns and large logos. Not to worry, smaller logos can be photoshopped out.

Should I wear any jewellery?

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.

How to Prepare for the Shoot

  1. Get a good night’s sleep – Our makeup artist can absolutely conceal tired eyes but you’ll feel better.
  2. Have a good breakfast – Don’t worry… Breakfast wont add noticeable pounds to your photos. Have a nice breakfast so your mood and energy are up.
  3. Think about your branding – How do you want people to think of you? Does your wardrobe reflect that?
  4. If you need a haircut, get it a few days before the shoot – If you need a haircut we recommend that you get it at least a day or two before the shoot. That way you will have time to get it fixed or adjusted if you don’t like it.
  5. Prepare your wardrobe before the day of the shoot – This is just with the intention of keeping your shoot day fun and stress free.

After the Session

What happens after the photo shoot?

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.

What happens to the selected shots?

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.

Is production included in the cost?

Yes. Post production is included in the price. Number of touched up shots you get just depends on the package you buy.

Can I purchase extra shots down the line?

Absolutely. You can always purchase additional touched up shots and you also get a bonus free touched up image with every referral!

I have a last minute audition/book/event. What if I need my photos same day?

We can usually arrange rush and same day requests.

Dan did a marvelous job for me. The shots captured me in a natural and candid image, while looking fully professional. The most popular comment I get about my shots is ‘You look professional, yet completely approachable in your photos!’ The headshots are key to giving my clients a good introduction. Dan has a true talent for putting me in my ‘best light’!

Found Dan Abramovici Photography after looking at a few studios in NYC (where I live) and Toronto (where my bf lives). The photos+videos on their website indicated quality and a professional experience, and the price for the corporate headshot package (3 outfits, 3 touched up photos) was competitive so I decided to give it a try -- LOVED the experience overall and totally worth it!

Dan was great. Personable, fun and professional. Not only did he do a great job on my photos, but he also shared his wealth of knowledge and experience and great advice about the business.
I highly recommend Dan and looking forward to working with him again in the very near future.

Absolutely fantastic photographer, and made me feel super comfortable during the entire shoot. Highly recommend!

Dan has done an incredible job with my clients. Everyone has had a great experience shooting with him and the shots that he produces really captures their individual personalities. I would recommend Dan to any actor who is looking for a headshot that is going to stand out to casting!

Dan has been a great photographer to work with. He brings fantastic creativity and flexibility to his photo shoots, as well as a charm and sense of humour that puts everyone at ease.

If you're ever looking for a smooth experience with a great guy to take your headshots then Dan is the man! Get's to know about you and then looks for ways to bring out the real you in the shots! Quick responses to emails and turnaround on finished edited shots! Very reasonable pricing as well with lots of package options. Anyway, highly recommended! Cheers!

A great photographer who knows the unique needs of actors and other clients as well. Very happy to work with, only wish was that the office was in a bit better location.

Dan Abramovici is a wonder to work with! He creates an amazing atmosphere to work in and is an awesome individual to work with. Not only does he deliver top notch material, he delivers it quickly. I definitely recommend going to Dan and Callback Headshots to any actor hungry for auditions. Thanks, Dan!

Dan Abramovici of Callback Headshots is nothing short of stellar. I’ve gone to him on numerous occasions and he’s managed to exceed my already high expectations every time. Whatever your hired him for, you can cross that item off your worry list. He’ll be pitch perfect.

Dan was great. I love my corporate pictures!

My experience with Dan Abramovichi Photography as a whole has been unmatched in the past. From start to finish, I was treated professionally and coached through my photos by one of their talented photographers (Ryan) to ensure that my appearance in my photos was the best it could be. I needed these photos for a professional website, marketing materials and my own social media and I am extremely happy that I used Dan Abramovichi Photography. Their experience with portrait photography and editing truly shows in their results. I have already recommended them to my colleague and plan to use them again in the future.

I can't thank Dan enough for being so amazing on our special day! He is so professional and kept everything running smoothly. He made sure that we got the right shots, with the right lighting, and retook them until every eye was open 😉 The few pics we have already receive from our wedding are phenomenal! Can't wait to see them all.

Dan came to my company to do a portrait day for staff for our business's cards and online. He was amazing. I could not imagine a more stressful environment for a photographer... To shoot thirty people in one half day and pretty well no one likes having their picture taken. Dan made it fun and easy and everyone was thrilled with the photos.

I also act on the side and had an awesome experience with his other company callback headshots. Will get around to reviewing it eventually. Really recommend this studio for business photos and portraits.

I have come to depend on Dan Abramovici’s inherent understanding of the craft of acting, his ability to make his subjects comfortable, and his professional and extremely refreshing shots which showcases his subject in a manner that will get them into casting. Not to mention, his willingness to inquire, listen, and work to provide me with what I need to promote my clients.
