Putting Personality back into your headshots

Do you get nervous in front of a camera? You’re not alone.

Yikes! No wonder so many people dislike photos of themselves.

At Art of Headshots our photographer’s talent with a camera is obvious. More importantly, their natural empathy and ability to listen help ease your nerves. Once the jitters subside they’re able to make your personality shine.

Invest in your future by getting a one of our professional Vancouver headshots photographers to expertly capture your personality in your headshots.

I wasn’t succeeding with my old headshot until ‘Art of Headshots’. My first audition I landed a role in Pirates of the Caribbean, my second audition it was X-Files and my career started… Now I have a role in Altered Carbon and a career as a film actor.

As a picky person, there have been very few occasions where I've had a picture of myself that I've liked; however, I'm extremely satisfied with the headshots that I received from Art of Headshots. Carlos is a fantastic photographer who makes you feel at ease and gets great natural looking (i.e. not stiff) shots, and then Becky works her magic to further improve upon the great shots with quality editing and touch-ups. It was like having the support of a glam-squad! I would highly recommend Art of Headshots.

The best headshot photography service in Greater Vancouver. Carlos is a master. Over the years I have seen many Realtor photos taken by Carlos and he always does a great job of catching that right moment. Recently a Realtor I know well had an updated shot taken by someone else his office had arranged with. It was mediocre at best. Art of Headshots offers a fair price for an exceptional end result. If you are in business get your most critical marketing piece done right.

Vancouver is one of my favorite places on earth. It’s gray and rainy there a lot of the time, but for some reason, even though it’s gray and rainy, I feel like it’s a sunny day.
