The SRK Headshot Day 60 minute headshot session has become a creative way for our headshot customers to create distinctive portraits for their website, author book jackets and social media.
Each 60 minute subject gets a phone call to discuss the goals for the session. We develop a shot list, discuss wardrobe, locations and concepts. Our studio in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has boundless background options at our disposal. We can move from studio to indoor environmental photos to outdoors. We can even add props, costumes or special makeup. All during one tightly planned 60 minute session. If you have an idea and aren’t sure if we can accomplish it in a 60 minute session, just give us a call before you book.
Below are some of the examples from recent sessions.
Indoor Showroom Environment for your Portrait
Our location at ShopFloor Design in San Francisco gives us access to a spacious, modern, well-lit set of indoor backgrounds. Modern furniture on site can be used in the photo too. This is all just steps from our upstairs studio. Full-body and wider portraits work well in this location. Soft focus backgrounds are a staple of this setting.
Outdoor Locations for Portraits and Headshots
Many fabulous backgrounds for portraits exist right outside our door at our San Francisco Studio. We love the look of warehouse doors and gates with great patinas and vanishing-point lines. Our mobile lighting rig is on wheels and we can easily locate to various locations in minutes. We have a small, verdant park a block from our studio that is great for nature settings.
Special Lighting in Your Portrait
Want to get a unique look in your studio portrait? Many of our clients have seen photos they like in magazines or online. They send us the portrait and we reverse engineer the lighting to match the look and feel of the photo. Since this requires a special lighting setup, we use the 60 minute session to dial it all in. We review the photos as we shoot on our tethered laptop to make sure it is just what you want. We love black and white as well.
Studio Props in Your Headshot Session
Do you want to bring some props to say a little more about your profession, hobby or other interests? We love working with props. We can set up a table, use chairs or bring in large props as well. We even have a prop stylist as a resource if you do not have what you need to make the vision you have into reality. Our makeup artists are also creative with makeup to help you get your point across.
Get The Creative Juices Flowing for Your Portrait
Do you have a vision for your portrait? We can figure out how to do it. We love a team approach and love to brainstorm. We can bring elements into the photo from other photos or drawings to create a photo illustration. If you have a concept for your portrait, please reach out and let’s talk.
