Fun, Artistic, Modern + Edgy Branding: Author, Website, Creative Headshots – San Francisco Bay Area


San Francisco photographer specializing in natural light, modern photos and casual corporate portraits for press, website, social media, lifestyle, artistic, portfolio, millennial, personal branding and business profiles.

Whether looking for a creative, organic, relaxed, not so corporate headshot, lifestyle images for your social media or blog, artistic actor/actress headshot for your agency portfolio or comp card, casual model for the day or a customized backdrop for your personality, let’s talk!

I love capturing cool, unique, beautiful, authentic, approachable and natural effortless editorial and environmental portraits for my clients who don’t want your average headshot. Modern yet casual and powerful. Outdoor headshots are my specialty.

When it comes to your headshots, photos provide increased visibility through Google image searches as well as increased views on sites like LinkedIn (members with profile photos can receive up to 21 times more profile views than those without profile photos).

I love working with clients to create custom images. If you have an outdoor location, outfit, environment, background or other inspiration, let me know. I partner with clients to capture photos that complement industry, fashion attire, branding, colors, skin tone, and hair.

The above is just a small sample of images I have captured, more are available on my Yelp page or by request. I shoot landscape, portrait and square orientations based on your photo outlets.

Whether you are looking for acting headshots, beauty portraits, glamour headshots, modeling photos for your portfolio, creative portraits for your business and branding, or content for your website and social media feeds – let’s talk. Creative portraits allow me to work beyond the confines of more business headshots and allow us to really take advantage of our surroundings.


How Do You Take A Good Headshot, Tips? Casual Headshot Ideas, Casual Female, Male Headshots

I highlight strengths and capture the individuality of people in flattering, unique environments, with a focus on color and environment for the photoshoot. Location scouting in the San Francisco Bay Area and creative direction is my specialty. I shoot outdoors, in client places of business and in public spaces with natural light for the photo session.

I love capturing pictures of people in custom locations. Great headshots are a combination of lighting, energy, preparedness, and confidence in your wardrobe, photographer and location. Studios are rather stiff and hard to get excited.

Whether you are male or female, long hair or short hair, updating your photos or getting your first set of professional portraits, let’s talk about your photography! Portrait examples below. Also, be sure to read this intro guide to headshots.

Depending on your hair color, skin tone, backgrounds, photo use, I will customize a wardrobe to optimize looks, lighting, body type and intent. Most photographers are rather stiff and technical and won’t offer creative, fashion tips and advice. I am meticulous yet relaxed in my approach as to create fun photoshoots.

Here are a few guides to help you get a sense of what to look out for when choosing your outfits: Men’s Wardrobe Tips and Women’s Wardrobe Tips.
