Meeting you

Headshot Photographer
Providing a bridge to help you develop your career.

Headshots are like first impressions. They matter (however much you wish that they didn’t). Their importance shouldn’t be underestimated.

In the studio or out on location there is always a moment when everything lines up. The moment feels good, you’re relaxed, the lights don’t worry you, the camera doesn’t intimidate you. You  are confident in knowing that you have chosen a Photographer  who cares and is totally focused on making sure that you’ll get the shots you need.


We are driven by a very simple guiding principle. Happy clients.

What You Have Said

Made Easy

“…very happy with the range of shots we got which can be used for all different media requests as well as my current novel and I will definitely be going back for my next book.”

— Rob McDonald


Headshot Photographer is a purpose built photographic studio. There are a few things that make it special.

For those of interested in the tech stuff the space is really flexible. The studio offers both studio light and natural light. Photographs can be taken in the studio or outside – there’s plenty of space. Pre-fabricated wall-like structures can easily be moved around to create different spaces and backgrounds. And there’s a five-metre floor to ceiling Cyclorama.

For those who are more interested in the creature comforts there are make-up and change rooms, couches and magazines, a kitchenette for tea/coffee etc. To make it extra easy for you there’s also undercover parking and a tram stop near the front door.

And then there’s Cole the dog.


I think we’ve sort of explained the how already. It’s the because of the emphasis we put on making the whole process enjoyable that you get the results you want.

There are other ‘Hows’ of course. Like the crew you may or may not need. Sometimes it’s a good idea to have a Make-up Artist making sure you look your best in front of the lens.

The retouching team then puts the finishing touches to the shots. They don’t apply filters, it’s done by hand including fine tuned colour grading on an accurate monitor, skin smoothing and other adjustments necessary to make the image complete.
