Is it grey? Is it charcoal? No! It's our pure black! You'd be amazed if you knew how flexible each backdrop is in terms of range of lightness depending on how the set is lit. Upon confirming your session, we send you a list of all background options available, and encourage you to be open minded and try out something other than the typical white or grey. Even with those backdrops, depending on how much we lighten or darken the midtones and highlights, we can create different shades of grey to suit or stand out against whatever outfit you happen to be wearing. Need a little help with what looks best for your purpose? Just ask and we would be happy to guide you in the right direction.
Sometimes it works for your business portrait to be on the low key end. Depending on the purpose and intention of your shoot, different expressions might suit. In this case, we give the example of the most low key pose you can do, straight on.
Don't get us wrong, as abrupt as it may be, it also makes for an instinctively approachable first impression, albeit in a completely different way than an angled pose. With face on shots, there's nothing to hide and you have all your cards on the table. This psychologically evokes trust, and straight forwardness, which is ultimately an attractive quality in humans!
Laura Jeanne is a Ashtanga Yoga instructor and wanted some photos to use on her website both of her portrait and her practice. In order to get an organic feeling and make the photos more artistic rather than instructional, we took the shoot outdoors for half the session. Since Laura got our Complete package, we had enough time to do so comfortably. When shooting outdoors, the flow tends to be disrupted more often, so we provide comfort in the ability to add on extra shooting time if things end up going well on the day of your session.

Throwback to a staff photoshoot we did on location at a King Street office.
Though at first glance it may look like our white backdrop, it's really just a spare white wall they had available in their meeting room. We packed up our gear and were able to recreate the same light that we have in the studio. For your convenience, we offer discounts on staff headshots larger than 5 people. Please get in touch for a full list of rates.
