Your people are going to love you for making them look so good.


Easy to Work With

We hired Dean for a corporate event where we offered employees new headshots. In record time, Dean photographed 47 employees. He was efficient, fun, and very talented in the shots he was able to capture. We were very happy with the final result and highly recommend working with him!

Helping With The Challenges You Face...

You work hard to build up your corporate image, protect your reputation and attract the best customers. Using poor quality headshots, or worse mismatched snapshots to represent your company will undermine the value you work so hard to build in your customer’s minds. 


With six decades of combined experience and specialized expertise in our fields,  my team and I will help you grow your social capital by giving you magazine cover quality corporate headshots. 

Your people will love you for making them look so good.

Making Your Life Easier...

  • Pre-shoot consultation to understand and stick to your corporate brand

  • Consideration of where photos will be used (website, SM) before taking a shot, ensuring white space where you need it, and vertical/horizontal shots when appropriate

  • Files are provided in jpegs of different sizes cropped for the many ways you will use them.

  • Clear communication with the photo subject and marketing team in the loop (it’s supposed to be fun, and I make it that way.)

  • Editing to bring out the client's best side, not a completely different one.

  • Dependably consistent results.
