I created Headshot Studio to promote individuality and to inspire people to pursue their dreams. Headshot Studio allows me to focus on creating images which resonate with New Zealand individuals and companies, helping them to promote themselves and their projects with confidence.
I have worked for several years in fashion and commercial photography which contributes to the aesthetic of my images. I approach my headshots with a very clean style with a preference for simple grey, black or white backgrounds. For my portraiture I like to play with cinematic lighting with a sense of drama. My love for Cinema comes from having worked on film sets for years, and I have a deep admiration for photographers like Richard Avedon and Marco Grob, of whom I credit much of my hollywood style and inspiration.
I am passionate about wellbeing, and am constantly pursuing growth. A good day for me would start with Yoga, a healthy breakfast followed by some exercise. I always love meeting new clients, and am often seen holding a flat white (my second one, and always a double shot).
The shoots last on average 1 1/2 hours for headshots or longer depending on your requirements and your schedule. During the shoot we will cull the images together so you will be left with the best selection possible to choose from when you leave the studio. At the end of the shoot your images are uploaded to your own pin-protected website for access on your computer or phone to be shared or favourited in your own time. Your selection will then be retouched and uploaded back to your personal website.
We can customise our sessions for specific client requirements. For more information please click on the button below, or contact me directly through the details that follow...
The Studio is based in the heart of Kingsland, on Kingsland Terrace, Auckland. There is a beautiful natural light which comes through the studio which makes for great headshots and natural portraits. It is also fully equipped with both flash and continuous lighting kits to cover a range of portrait styles. The building is an old industrial structure, which doesn’t look like much from the outside, but is filled with creative offices and studios ranging from Florists, Design, Video Production to Photography. There is parking available for clients, but if for any reason it is full, there are ample parking options on the street.
We are Studio 12. If you are coming to visit, please call ahead to make sure we are in, or that we are not too busy with a shoot.
I want to create the best, most authentic representation of you possible. The way we present ourselves matters, and as kiwis we don’t like to scream and shout, but I do believe that we can still present ourselves in a way that speaks of confidence and integrity.
I am a headshot and portrait specialist (rather than doing headshots as an add on service or as a job on the side). This allows me to put in the hours, to study the technical and energetic nuances which will make great headshots. I treat my work as a craft which I am constantly refining and improving while adapting the latest technologies to provide the best experience and photography for you.
It is important for me that our shoot is really enjoyable and that you feel great. I love what I do so will always bring plenty of positive energy and laughter to our session. I enjoy being around people and am empathetic by nature which means i'm pretty easy to be around, and I know just what to do to get the best energy out of our shots.
With my headshot photography, every muscle of the face is treated with importance. I work with the subtleties of expression to create images that don't give it all away and retain a timelessness and class.
I'm confident you will be happy with my work, and payment is only conditional of you being happy with the shoot. If you are not happy by the end of the shoot, let me know and you will will not be expected to pay.
