ON SITE AND IN STUDIO CORPORATE HEADSHOTS
Although we have a studio in North Raleigh in a business district, we also make it very convenient for companies by having a team of professional photographers that are available to go on site and provide studio quality headshots in office or an alternate location. This not only saves time, but it saves money based on volume discounts vs. one individual coming to our studio.
Each person photographed will have several images taken and be able to view them on site to make sure they are pleased. We typically include one basic retouched image that goes through a 15 to 30 minute post shoot editing process for things like stray hairs, face and necklines, color enhancements and more. Once post editing is complete, we deliver each file in both 300 DPI and 72 DPI format with lifetime usage rights.
There are several advantages to using us for company headshots beyond what is mentioned above. We always show up with one photographer and one assistant minimum, we are experienced at providing studio style shots and/or environmental style shots and we lock in the per person rate for a minimum of 1 year after the shoot for any additional staff needs to visit our North Raleigh Studio one off. We can even photograph a background on site and use it later by creating a composite: Use the GET A QUOTE button below on the right to take the next step. For individuals, we do have individual pricing in studio pricing ( not company ) listed on this page.
INDIVIDUAL HEADSHOTS FOR LINKEDIN & MORE!
Although we can go on location for one person, most individuals choose to come to our North Raleigh Studio which is located in a business district not in a garage. In studio sessions allow us to offer a lot of variety in a short amount of time because no one really wants to stay in front of a camera any longer than they have to. We even offer optional image consulting via Kate Leser (The Makeover Expert). A professional headshot is one of the most affordable investments you can make into your career.
ACTING, EDGY AND CREATIVE HEADSHOTS
Acting and modeling style headshots are often needed for individual portfolios. These style headshots may be shot a lot tighter by focussing even more on the face than the average business style headshot. However, a business headshot can be shot very tight as well.
It's not uncommon for edgy, acting, modeling and other more creative style headshots to be part of an extended session with multiple outfits and literally hundreds of images taken during the session. For this style of session, it is recommended (not required) that the client have Kate Leser (The Makeover Expert) involved.
Classic & Creative - Why Not Have Both?
In the image on the right, you will notice a small classic style headshot in the upper left corner and a larger more creative one in a different outfit with the lady holding shopping bags. This shot was part of a headshot shoot for a large accounting firm that wanted a more traditional headshot and a headshot of the employee showing another side of themselves.
What do employee's do outside of work? That was the premise behind this photoshoot. The company wanted to show hobbies that their employee's enjoyed. Our team photographed people with dogs, sporting apparel (like favorite team), golf clubs, running medals and much more. The employee's really enjoyed the creative images.
Remember this shoot was for an accounting firm, so that leaves a lot of room for other professionals to think of how to be creative and still be professional. If you only want a classic business headshot, we can provide exactly what you need. However, if you want to be creative, we can also help create something different.
Need Special Lighting? Something Different?
David has had other special lighting requests like using a red gel on a black background with a lighting style on the face to match other shots that were taken by various photographers around the country. In this case, it was for a headshot to be displayed on a wall in Texas.
No matter what your lighting and background need may be, let's discuss your specific needs. Although it may change the pricing from what is listed on the graphic on this page, we can still have a discussion about creating a specific look. If you can find examples online that appeal to you, that is a helpful way to get started with the initial conversation.
David started working with photography lighting in the 1980's in high school while assisting a veteran editorial photographer. David also gained portrait lighting experience in college and 35 plus years later enjoys the challenge of working with unique lighting styles.

Here's a review from Teresa H.
"Truly a great experience! David is great to work with, he finds the most flattering angles for photos! He shoots so many great shots it's hard to choose which ones you want. The retouch is so subtle. I also recommend teaming up with Kate Leser when you have your photos done! She's a great resource for makeup tips, clothes choices, and on-site during the shoot to pay attention to the small details like collars and necklaces. Thanks DWPPC for a great result! Teresa"
Look Great. Feel Great.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Our image is our introduction to the world so it’s important that you feel good about how you look. Professional Makeup Artist Ashley Bromirski understands that having the right makeup and overall image can make all the difference in the way you feel and the way you photograph.
Why Makeup is Important for your Headshot…
Your headshot image should create a positive reaction and/or a feeling of connection or engagement from the viewer. Anything that distracts can significantly reduce the impact of the shot. Proper clothing selection, jewelry, hair and makeup should be positive attributes to your overall image. There’s a true art to knowing the best color, product or technique to highlight a client’s best qualities while still maintaining their lifestyle and personalities. Whether you wear makeup regularly or not – a skilled, trained makeup artist like Ashley knows how to apply camera-ready makeup while still maintaining a natural and professional result.

David Williams started doing headshots in the Fall of 1987 in the college and university market. Obviously the student age ranges were roughly 18 to 22 years old, but David also photographed faculty and staff for the college yearbook. In those days, college men actually put on a coat and tie for their yearbook photo. Grant it, they may have had flip flops and shorts on, but most looked like young professionals for their headshots. This period in David's career taught him about volume headshots and capturing images professionally yet efficiently. Fast forward over 30 years and David not only does in studio business headshots, but he also goes on location for companies. To date, the most David and team have done for one single company is 500+ individual headshots taken over a period of 3 days at the companies Raleigh corporate office and the Raleigh convention center during a multi-day event. In addition to this 500+ example, David and team have photographed 5, 10, 15 and 20+ people for business headshots for numerous companies. There have been several companies utilize our team for 40 to 50+ headshots and one company over 125 headshots. In other words, we have experience doing headshots on site.
