Next Meetup

Get a new headshot
Everyone needs a current headshot, it is "our brand" ... This is a NOT workshop but rather a chance to get a good photograph of yourself to print, use as your profile on Facebook, Meetup, LinkedIn, your website, your business card, etc. Everyone needs a headshot nowdays. Come see our Studio and get your picture taken!! We know that, as photographers, we like being on the other end of the camera, but we all need a current headshot. We have a changing room and a bathroom where you can even change into a different outfit if you want something formal and something casual. You will receive two copies of the (one) photograph that you pick (a high resolution version for printing and a version sized and color-spaced for the Internet and social media). Editing and B&W at no extra charge. You may purchase additional files if you want more than one look. We have a lot of friends who look like this We want you to look like this We normally charge $200 for a headshot session that includes the studio time, editing and one JPG file with shared rights for printing. Come to this event and it will cost you less than half that amount! Check out some of our headshots here: http://www.breaphotosgalleries.com/Portraits/Business-Portraits We will instruct you how to sit and look your best by demonstrating. We will take a traditional full face pose and a 2/3 view pose and we will have you smile and be serious to provide few different of images for you to choose from. The images will be posted in an online gallery for your to view and select from. We perform custom post-processing/editing on the chosen image (we edit blemishes, lint, soften the face a little, etc. ). Note that we only remove beauty marks, moles, freckles and such if requested, each person can let us know if they would prefer a little "glamour editing" at NO additional charge) What to wear We recommend a simple outfit, nothing too busy (avoid stripes, plaids, etc). Jewel tones (blues, greens, maroon, etc.) photograph very well. Avoid tank tops, sleeveless tops as bare arms overpower the face and can make us appear heavier than we are. Avoid white shirts as the brightness draws the viewers attention away from the face. This will be a head and shoulders photograph, not a full frame photograph, you could wear sweats or shorts on the bottom but sometimes it is beneficial to be fully dressed as it changes your affect and the way that you carry yourself. Your clothing should be appropriate for the type of portrait you desire, casual or formal. You can bring two outfits if you want two different looks. If you know for sure that you want two different looks you can register for yourself and a friend and pay for two; you can also purchase individual JPG files with shared rights later.

What we're about

They have published two books with Amherst Media. The first called “Create Fine Art Photographs from Historic Places and Rusty Things” is about their HDR and light painted images; it can be ordered from Amazon http://tinyurl.com/lisatom-urbex and is also available at brick and mortar bookstores like Barnes and Noble. Their second, one year later, is called “The Frog Whisperer” http://tinyurl.com/lisatom-frogs

We started this group in order to provide photography instruction and workshops dedicated to improving both your SOOC (straight out of the camera) images and your post-processing. We are very active in the photographic community and enjoy helping others find the joy and satisfaction in taking and making
