Professional Headshots to help you stand out

Do your professional headshots give off the right image?  First impressions matter, especially in business. With everything moving online these days, it’s more important than ever to have your online presence polished.

A headshot should shout ‘professional, yet approachable’. You want others to see you as someone who invests in their self-image, helping to push your career or business to new heights.

A professional headshot can make the difference between you being seen as bland, or brilliant. How do you want to be seen?

Easy as 1,2,3

Don’t know how to pose? Or what to do with your face? Not a problem! With over 7 years as a professional photographer, I’m confident in the process. I coach you throughout, removing any doubts and finding your best angles.

My shortest sessions are 45 minutes as I don’t want you to feel rushed. We’ve got time for a coffee, and you can see your images on a big screen throughout the shoot. You’ll be able to leave excited about the photos, knowing that we captured you at your best.

On the longer sessions we have time for outfit changes and a wider variety of looks, so you can have images to suit all your different platforms. Need some full length business portraits? Check!

Once the shoot is finished, you receive a private gallery where you can choose which photos you’d like to keep. These are then fully retouched to remove any blemishes, and add my signature style.

Shoots take place at my private studio space in Stockport. I can also do location work at your offices or elsewhere.

Pricing

I have a range of different packages available, each designed to suit your requirements.

In short, the headshot session is for those who want to update their headshot only.

Headshots plus are for those who want more than just a headshot, such as full length portraits. This option is also great for small teams of up to 3-people.

I can also come to you and setup a studio on-location. This is a great option if you need any number of people from 3+ capturing.

If you want to discuss any of the packages, please feel free to contact me on 07540809405 or paul@paulrichardson.co.uk

Frequently Asked Questions

Never had your headshot taken before, and unsure what to expect? Never fear! Below are a series of my most commonly asked questions.
If you have any questions that don’t appear here, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Where does the shoot take place?2020-06-30T11:41:02+00:00

Currently shoots will take place in my light and airy studio space in Vernon Mill, Stockport. Location work is possible too, and I’m happy to discuss this.

Can we shoot outdoors?2020-03-11T12:05:40+00:00

For headshot and headshot plus sessions, I prefer to keep these indoors. It gives more control with the light and means I can really craft the final image.

Portrait sessions are best when we have a variety in environments, so I am happy to capture these indoors or out.

How do I book a session?2020-06-30T11:44:21+00:00

Just drop me an email or call, and I can get you in the calendar. All bookings require a 50% deposit to secure the date.

The additional 50% payment is taken on day of the shoot, via bank transfer or credit/debit card.

What should I wear?2020-03-11T12:05:00+00:00

I recommend bringing a few clothing options, so we can decide on the day what works best for you.

As a rule of thumb, don’t bring ‘busy’ patterns (plain colours are often best), and avoid anything with obvious logos on.

If you’re unsure, I’m happy to talk it through with you on the phone or email.

How should I do my hair and makeup?2020-03-11T12:04:40+00:00

For those with long hair, I’d recommend wearing it in your usual preferred style. But bring a bobble or clip, so we can try a few different styles out on the day if necessary.

With makeup, less is more. It’s easy for me to retouch out slight blemishes or unwanted extras like spots. But it’s difficult to remove excessive makeup on the computer.

I had a spot appear! What should I do?2020-03-11T12:04:22+00:00

Don’t fret, it can easily be removed on the computer later. In general, I would prefer for you to leave it as it, rather than try to hide it with a lot of makeup.

How much do you retouch images?2020-03-11T12:04:04+00:00

My general rule of thumb is to remove temporary things (spots/blemishes/loose hairs, etc), and leave things that are part of who you are, such as scars.

If you have anything specifically that you would prefer for me to remove, feel free to let me know on the day.

Can I have all of my photos unretouched?2020-03-11T12:03:45+00:00

I put my heart and soul into each retouched image that I release into the world. As such when an image has my name attached to it as the photographer, I want to make sure it meets my high standards.

Handing out unretouched images can mean they inevitably get out into the wild or are retouched strangely by someone else. As such I only deliver the retouched images with my packages.

How many photos will I get?2020-09-28T10:33:52+00:00

Each package has a set number of retouched images.  Headshots include 2, headshots plus include 4, and portrait sessions include 8.

Additional images can be retouched after the shoot for a cost of £20 per image.

When will I get my photos?2020-03-11T12:03:07+00:00

You will receive an online gallery within 48 hours of the shoot, where you can access and select your final photos. Once these are selected there could be up to a 2-week period whilst they are edited – but often it is much faster.
If you require a particularly fast turnaround time, this can be purchased as an optional extra

What is your booking policy?2020-06-30T11:43:13+00:00

When confirming a booking I require a 50% deposit within 24 hours to seal the date. The final balance is due on the day, and I can accept bank transfer or credit/debit cards.

If you want to cancel the shoot up to 28 days prior to the date, I can provide a full refund.

Up to 7 days before the shoot I’m happy to use the deposit against a different date.

Any shoots that are cancelled less than 7 days before the shoot will be subject to no return of the deposit.

How will I receive my images?2020-03-11T12:02:17+00:00

Within 48 hours of the shoot you will receive an online proofing gallery where you can login and choose which images you’d like me to edit.

Once these selections are made, you’ll receive your final images retouched in the same gallery.
