Does Your Headshot Look Like This?!

As solopreneurs and small business owners, we ARE our brand and the impression we make through our photos builds trust and tells a story. Does your headshot look like a high school yearbook picture or can everyone tell it’s just a selfie? In either case, you know it’s not helping you look like the pro you really are!

Maybe you’ve drastically changed your look or you want to see what a photographer is like with a low-cost option before investing in a complete branding shoot. If you’ve shopped for headshots already you know the going rate is about $350 for 3 final shots.

Well, Headshot Day is coming to the rescue! After vetting 4 photographers, 5 locations, and a headshot truck idea we’ve landed on a sweet deal for Freelance Austin or WCA members only from FotoHouse.

We’re excited to offer a group discount from a great pro like Daniel Nguyen for $200 each in a central Austin studio (think: air conditioning y’all!).

Take a look at Daniel’s work and you’ll be as excited as we are! Daniel has worked with models and actors as well as business people and will help you feel at ease.

There are just 20 spots for this day for members only! Sign up now.

If many others are interested we may be able to secure another day.
We’ve extended the deadline! Sign up by June 7th to secure this day and price! Once you book and pay additional details will be sent regarding parking etc.

Here’s what you’ll receive for $200:

• Different colored backgrounds to choose from

• A dedicated makeup and hair area with those fancy lights!

• Simple variations: jacket on or off, glasses on or off,
with some kind of prop, in a chair Vs standing

• 20-25 shots taken, various poses

• 6-8 final 3/4 body headshots (not just your head!) See here

• Color and black and white shots included

• Retouched shots emailed within 3-5 days of the shoot

This is all done in one quick 15-minute session – so including driving you may spend an hour total to get some great news shots. The key to making this work is being prepared and unrushed.
