It's head shot season. Mid November is before the holiday weight gain, before spending loads of cash and before the New Year when most people want to put their best foot forward.
Step one is choosing your photographer (hopefully me). But step TWO is finding the right spot to shoot. Three questions you want to ask yourself or your photographer will ask for you.
Clothing and location affect the message. We can chat about clothing when you book your appointment but lets focus on location.
A lot of my client not only love their photos in these unique manicured spots, but they turn them into events, team building, meeting or work spaces before or after. For example: Book a team event, hire a portrait photographer and make-up person, BOOM. Two birds, one event space.
Here are a few spaces I recommend
photos taken from PeerSpace website - not my own
Covering your basic head shot needs with the ability to add backgrounds and studio lighting. No time limit and super in-expensive.
For a darker, more editorial vibe this space is stunning, located in the Mission, also not a bank breaker and with outdoor natural light access.
If you're not cramped by location or cash take the team portraits here then team build (party) after. It's absolutely perfect for indoor and outdoor photo options with multiple backgrounds and lighting scenarios to choose from.
I could go on and so do the options on PeerSpace. Make time for a portrait or head shot this month, check out PeerSpace to secure location then give me a call to snap those much needed brand visuals.
