A professional Studio Gives You the Customer Experience You, and Your People Deserve
Updated: Sep 14
I’ve designed my studio to give my clients the dignified experience they deserve and make it easy for them to get great headshots.
The people I photograph are busy executives who have multiple demands on their time. My studio is conveniently located just off Hwy. 101 and San Antonio Rd. making it easy for my clients to stop in, get great photos and be on their way to the next appointment, catch a flight, or head home without the frustration of navigating endless side streets.
Most people are surprised to discover I share space with a luxury window blind and drapery showroom. I consider it my foyer. I like that it’s quiet, clean and my customers are greeted with the professionalism, dignity, and respect that is a hallmark of exemplary customer service.
After passing through the showroom, I love introducing people to my studio by opening the door with a flourish and welcoming them to “My World.”
The atmosphere of my studio is wonderful. It’s a very private 400 square foot space separated from the main showroom and on the quiet side of the building. The space is small enough to promote a sense of casual intimacy but large enough, so no one feels crowded.
The twelve-foot high black ceiling creates the impression of being in a vast space. The cheerful lighting and white walls create a sense of open airiness. The glamor mirror at the makeup station is there for last minutes touch-ups and to ensure your executives, whether they're men or women, know they look their best before stepping in front of the camera. The changing booth is a welcome convenience that tells people we’ve thought of everything.
Climate control is a breeze. We can quickly warm or cool the space to ensure my customers are comfortable in whatever outfit they’re wearing. No one wants their forehead beaded with sweat when they’re trying to look like a ruler of the world in their executive headshots.
My studio is the perfect size and layout for executive headshots. It’s large enough to do small groups, and everything we need is within “arms reach.” This helps us maintain the energy and excitement of the shoot as we quickly make changes to wardrobe, makeup, lighting, or backgrounds without breaking stride.
