Imagine having a headshot worthy of a magazine cover. Imagine having a headshot you'd have no problem showing on a 30-foot screen as you accept that award (this actually happened for a client). Imagine a headshot that you'll actually like. Imagine having an experience, unlike any headshot session you've ever had before. This is what we are talking about.
It's an investment, not an expense
Many people look at headshots and say "it's just a picture of me, I don't need anything special" but that is a serious mistake. The impression your headshot leaves with people is everything. A headshot can make the difference if people decide to work with you. That means more business and an increase in your income.
What some photographers don't tell you
Ever heard of usage licensing? Many photographers only license your pictures to you, and only for specific purposes. Want to submit your headshot to a magazine? That can cost you more up front. At Toronto Headshot, there are never any hidden fees, usage licenses or extra charges at the end of your session! You can use your keepers in any way you choose.
We love it when clients come back!
We also love when our past customers come back to us for a refresh of their professional image. As such, we’re pleased to offer returning clients a 25% discount on current published, regular session rates!
Your session includes two fully retouched shots but you don't have to stop there. Additional shots from the session that you choose to have professionally retouched are affordably priced.
I will warn you though, there will be so many good shots, past clients have said I make it pretty hard to choose!
The Full Collection
You can purchase all of the shots in the selection gallery. They're not retouched but are in high resolution. On average your gallery could contain 50-90 shots. It all depends on how many shots we take and how many make the cut.
Hair & Makeup*
Hair and makeup can make a huge difference to the end results.
Mainly chosen by my female clientele, my makeup artist is a professional and is fully trained having worked on everything from magazine and fashion shoots to weddings and film sets.
This is an combined service that includes both hair and makeup. Individually priced services are not available.

Group Headshots Rates
If you have a number of employees, we've found a better way to photograph them!
Coming to your office introduces some problems.
Setting up the studio takes space that you may not have, or can't afford to tie up for an entire day.
On top of that, changing light from windows and other variables can affect the final shots, breaking consistency.
All the bustling setting up in your conference room causes a distraction for all your staff.
Not just those getting their headshot taken.
And somone else needs to manage whos turn it is and find them -often hiding in the washroom!
Coming into the office is a one time event. If any employees are sick or away on a business related trip, they'll be missed.
This forces you to make other arrangements. Don't forget new hires. They'll need a headshot too.
Many clients profess how much they hate having pictures taken. They are stressed about whether they brought the right tie or shirt with them. Whether their makeup is ok or they're just having a bad hair day!
There's also that one employee that would rather stop and watch what's going on. There's even more stress!
How We Do Group Headshots Differently
First and foremost, our goal is to get the best headshots of all your employees. We also want to ensure continuity among all of the headshots. We achieve this goal by scheduling each of your employees their own dedicated appointment in our studio. Each employee gets their own time outside of company hours with no other employees 'in on the session'.
This simple approach solves all of the issues mentioned above. We don't take up your space. We don't distract the office. We get shots of the missing employees because they can't get missed. And we reduce over all employee stress as there are no witnesses to their headshot session. We can also ensure continuity with future employees that need their headshot taken, even months down the road, because all the employees were shot in the same controlled conditions. But it also solves another task from your list. Managing the scheduling and making sure they get their headshot done. We take care of that too. We have a dedicated online booking platform that your employee uses to pick their preferred date and time. Just for them.
There is one other benefit of choosing Toronto Headshot's group program. Out of all the other benefits, we feel this is the most important one. It's your employee's experience during their session. You value your skilled employees and want to show them that their comitment is appreciated. Rather than the typical snapshot that they'll immediately forget about, not to mention never use. Toronto Headshot's experience is one they will remember. It's not just a portrait session but a learning experience as well. The tips and tricks on facial expression and body language empower your emplyoees' with knowledge. They leave knowing how to present themselves in a confident and approachable way. This leads to more positive interactions with clients and more successful eoployees.
