Headshots - Silver Cedar Photography

Headshots

Whether you’re a seasoned executive or just starting your career and want to establish your image as being competent, confident and approachable, we can help you cultivate that image with the keystone of your personal brand; your corporate headshot.


Businesses in today’s fast paced and highly competitive marketplace realize that the image their executive leadership, management  and sales team members portray online is an essential and core component of their brand, projecting their business confidently as a leader in their industry or market.


Corporate Headshots make a distinct statement about who you are, and even where you want to go. They can compel the viewers you really want to stop and linger on your image, attracting the right people and just as importantly, the right opportunities. Alternatively, when poorly done, your social media or advertising profile picture can have the exact opposite effect; it can leave your viewers with a less than favorable impression that can be personally or professionally limiting.


CORPORATE HEADSHOT SESSIONS

Option 1 - Individuals

Many of our corporate clients send their team members directly to our studio to be photographed. We work closely with our corporate clients schedules to accommodate them with appointments at each client’s convenience, where possible, and we spend up to an hour with them during the session.


We photograph and edit all the images throughout the session, down to a select number of chosen images that both we and our client have approved. We work with our clients during the session to discard all unwanted images, which allows us to ensure that each individual is pleased with how they look and with the outcome of their session.


The final images chosen are then uploaded to our online private proofing portal for viewing purposes as well as ordering any retouching or printing services. For women who would like to have their hair/makeup done prior to the shoot the cost in addition to the Headshot Session.


We have ongoing relationships with corporate clientele for corporate headshot services, so if you would like to set up a discounted rate, contracting us to handle your company headshot requirements, we'd be happy to discuss that with you.


Option 2- Half Day, On-location

This option is to set up a full service studio at your location for a half day. The session is approximately four hours and based on 1 hour with each individual client.


We use this time to photograph and edit all the images down to a select number of chosen images that both we and each client have approved.


We discard all unwanted images, which allows us to ensure that each individual is pleased with the outcome of their session and all the remaining images. The final chosen images are then uploaded to our online proofing gallery for viewing purposes as well as ordering any retouching or printing services.


Makeup pricing for a half day is available and depending upon the number of men and women shooting. Should you need to add extra people to this option it would be based on the group discount rate applied per person.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

In order to get the highest quality photos, we don’t manage any of our sessions to a specific number of shots but rather we’ll shoot just about the entire time you’re with us and work with you to select only the best shots as we go, allowing you to choose from a broader a selection of shots. Your finished Headshots can be used for your business, purposes and are intended to make it easy for you to meet your goals.

During your session, we’ll work closely with you to eliminate any photos you don’t absolutely love; together, we'll make adjustments as we go, allowing us to cover the areas you want to capture most and account for anything you want to make sure we don’t miss.


By the time your session is complete, we’ll have shot well over 100 images and through our real-time editing process you’ll end up with somewhere between 50-75 images uploaded to your private viewing portal for final selection. Working together, we’re going to make sure that by the time you walk out of our studio, you’ll know exactly what you’ll be getting because we’ve gone through the entire process together and you’ve approved of each and every shot.


At every stage, our process is easy to adjust and you’re in control. By Choosing Silver Cedar Photography, and working with us throughout your session, you’re choosing to be actively involved in your success. You’re ultimately in control and have the ability to choose the images you love and are taking the responsibility to convey anything you believe we should adjust or improve throughout your session. We want you to be totally engaged and totally jazzed about your session with us and thrilled with the outcome.


We’re not keeping count.

So you’re going to have plenty of amazing shots to choose from. We’re going to eliminate whatever you don’t absolutley love throughout the session and keep only the very best of what you really want.


Before you leave our studio, your approved photos will be uploaded and available for you to view on your own private, password protected portal. You should feel free to share access to your images with family, friends or anyone you would like to help you choose your best shots. Your personal portal is kept online for you for a minimum of a year from the date of your shoot, and is the perfect venue for rating and commenting on your images. If you’re still using your portal after the first year, just let us know and we can keep it open for you at your request. We love and are dedicated to the work that we do and to the success of your session and our goal is for you to be thrilled with your final product. However, we have no control over how your chosen photos will be received by friends, family, agents, publicists, media or others following your time with us in studio, therefore, if for any reason, you would like to make adjustments after leaving the studio, or would like to add an additional look or two, we’ll charge you a reduced rate for another hour of shooting. We charge for this as a service to cover our time only because we provide you every opportunity to request changes or adjustments throughout your original session. This offer is only available for 30 days following your original appointment, after which you any updates to your look can be scheduled at our return client discount rate described below.


PHOTO RETOUCHING AND PRINT SERVICES

Once you make your final selection, we’ll continue to work with you to create your finished headshots. We offer photo retouching services at very reasonable rates and can help you with your print needs as well.


For quality control purposes, we do not release raw or high resolution photos at the conclusion of your session unless you separately purchase the entire session, negotiated in advance. This is specifically for Quality control purposes and only available as an option for our Headshot Sessions. This helps us offer and ensure the highest quality work using our post-production photo editing processes. We do not offer this option in any of our other sessions or products.


Throughout our digital workflow, we manage each and every detail of your images from the raw capture through the selection and delivery of your finished product. This includes using best in class software and processes to manage color and clarity, which allows us to deliver the highest quality photos. All of our retouching work is done on separate layers within the digital file and, as with our sessions, all retouching is done with your approval of the final product.


If you prefer to use another retouching service or to use the print lab of your choice, we will transfer all raw images from your approved session to you with the purchase of the Session Buy-out option mentioned above.

What does all that mean to you?


It means each image is captured on a full frame camera, tethered directly to our computer and capturing your image in the highest digital resolution. From there, and throughout each stage of production, we’ve built a completely integrated digital workflow which manages each photo for color and clarity using top of the line tools and applications.


What to wear:

We’re asked this question all the time, and here's what we tell all of our clients:


whatever you wear, you have to Love it!


We don’t want to shoot you wearing anything you’re not 100% comfortable wearing. Remember that this is your personal style and your personal brand that we’re shooting and you just won’t shoot well in an outfit that you’re not comfortable in or doesn’t reflect the image you want to portray.

We recommend bringing a number of outfit options and we’ll work with you on what to wear for your best look. We'll usually begin with light makeup for women and build from there throughout the session.

If you’re in doubt about whether to bring an outfit, bring it along because the only outfit we can’t shoot is the one you don’t have with you.

We don’t recommend wearing seasonal items or wild fashions which may be a distraction from the real focus of your headshot session.... Save those for your fashion shoot!
