Headshots that propel your digital presence forward!

When was the last time you Googled someone? What did you find out about her? What was your impression about that person? How was his profile picture (headshot)?

​Now imagine someone Googling YOU! (it could be a potential investor, a customer or a recruiter). How's YOUR profile picture? When someone checks your profile online, what will they find? awkward selfies? A photo of you cropped out of a group photo taken in a friend's wedding? 

10k Portraits Photography is an exclusive service which means it will be provided with your needs in mind to show in best possible light. You may ask, "Is it really necessary?"

Yes! it is necessary. Your headshot is the only interface for people who haven't met you in person. People immediately form an impression looking at your photos that pop up in the search results, just like you do about others. Headshots have the power to create conscious or subconscious impression on the viewer. Can you afford to make a poor first impression? Can you be casual about it?

Profiles with a professional headshot are 21 x more likely to be viewed and 36 x more likely to be messaged.

Are you shy or uncomfortable in front of a camera?

Some folks don't like their photo taken, some are not comfortable in front of a camera, some people don't like to pose whereas some feel weird about their nose, ears, eyes, body etc. Portrait photography is as much about addressing these issues and concerns, make you feel comfortable and looking your best as lighting, posing, retouching etc. are.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How often should I change my headshot or LinkedIn profile photo?

If your online portrait is noticeably different from how you really look, it’s time for a new one. If you change your hairstyle, got a new pair of glasses, or gained or lost weight or if your current headshot is more than 1 year old, it is a good time for an updated headshot, we change and age visibly in one year and significantly in 2 years.

What’s the difference between a headshot and a business portrait?

A headshot shows the head and shoulders of the person and generally taken against a plain white or grey or black background. Whereas a business portrait shows the surroundings to give a sense of the working environment. These are not rules, just norms. With 10k Portraits, you can get what you need. The shoot will be tailored to your requirements.

What should I wear for my photo shoot?

Clean, pressed clothes that fit comfortably, neither too tight or too loose.

What should I not wear for my photo shoot?

This is an easier question to answer. Creased, crumpled clothes are not to be worn at all. Old shirts and trousers which were washed several times are supposed to be donated to the less privileged. Shirts with collars that collapse...either get them fixed (yes that's possible) or donate them. 

Should I smile in my business portrait?

There are no rules, you need to decide what you need and what is appropriate. If you want to look friendly and approachable in a headshot or business portrait you smile - I will coach in smiling right. However I am happy to understand your needs and guide you to get the best headshot you deserve...with or without smile.

With a minimum of three edited photos included in my headshot photography session, you have the scope to try a range of expressions, and you can use whichever one is the most appropriate in any given context. For instance, a shot with a more serious expression might suit a webpage detailing the services you offer, while a more cheerful look might fit better on an 'about' page, where you’ll want to show a bit more of your personality.

  

What can I expect from a typical headshot / portrait session?

Prior to the session, we will plan the shoot. On the day of the shoot, we'll narrow down the outfit options. I understand that not everyone is comfortable in having their photos taken. I will guide you through the shoot. You will get to see your headshots at several points during your photo shoot so you can tell me how it is going and if any changes are needed.

How is retouching of headshots done?

I prefer to capture you in your best light, and provide professional retouching keeping you looking natural, the way you are. However I understand that everyone prefers a different level of retouching and it will be tailored to your needs.

Do I really need professional retouching for my headshots?

Retouching is the finishing touch that make good headshots look better, however this can be skipped if you don't want your photos retouched.

Can I have the RAW files?

RAW files are unfinished images and I do not supply these to my clients.

How long does it take to get my headshots after the shoot?

7 to 10 days

How will I receive my headshot images? 

I delivers the digital headshot images you purchase as high-quality JPG files through a download link. 

Should I wear jewelry?

You may! There are no rules. It is a matter of what is appropriate for your specific needs. For corporate headshots, jewelry should be minimal so as not to cause distraction how if your needs are different, you are the best judge as to what to do.

Should I put on makeup for a headshot photo shoot?

Yes but please keep it minimal for corporate headshots. For formal headshots, please avoid eyeshades or anything overboard. 

Should I wear my glasses in a headshot photo shoot?

If you normally wear glasses, yes. Keep the cleaning eyeglass cloth handy however.

Is there anything else I should do to prepare for my headshot session?

Make sure to get a good night’s sleep before your shoot - also minimize alcohol to two drinks in the evening before the shoot - but feel free to fulfill the shortfall in the quota after the shoot. Drink plenty of water to make you feel and look your best! Also make sure you iron or steam the clothing choices you are going to wear in to your session and decide on how you will style your hair and/or makeup. Please go through the preparation tips I share with you when you book a session.

Can I share my headshot session time with a friend or colleague?

Yes! you can, however, please note that it will be a single session shared between you folks meaning the number of headshots per session doesn't change nor the additional charges. 

Do I have to decide which images I want during my session?

Yes. I will guide you and be your “second opinion.” The last bit of narrowing down will be based on your needs and budget.

Which outdoor location is best for photo shoot?

I have a curated list of pre-determined locations based on lighting, permissions, the available backgrounds - outdoor shoots are done only in these locations, if you however needs this to be elsewhere, please let me know the details. 

Can I get photos specific to my business needs like lifestyle photography and branding photos?

Absolutely. Please share you needs in advance so that we can plan the shoot accordingly.

Can I get some photos for my dating profile along with some headshots?

Absolutely. Please share you needs in advance so that we can plan the shoot accordingly.

Can I get photos with my family along with some headshots?

Absolutely. Please share you needs in advance so that we can plan the shoot accordingly.

Does a headshot session include half & full-length shots?

Absolutely. We take you from all angles and at all lengths.

How do I prepare for a headshot / portrait shoot?

You will get preparation tips once you book a session.
