A Little About the Studio
City Headshots was founded in 2009 and is now Yelp's #1 rated headshot studio in New York City. We have had our headshot work featured in The Wall Street Journal & The New York Times, we've shot for well known law firms like Locke Lord and Harris Beach, and at least a few times a month a company we've worked with tells us how much value they've found in their photos. It's great to hear these success stories, and we hope it continues for everyone we work with.
Why Work With Us?
- We specialize in headshots. The entire focus of our career has been on bringing out the best emotions and expressions to truly help you connect with your audience. We are not "Jack of All Trades" photographers.
- There will be no awkward moments. Because we've spent so much time doing headshots, we have it down to a scientific art (is that an oxymoron?). The process is fun and engaging, and even if you hate being in front of a camera, after just a few minutes you'll start laughing and enjoying the shoot.
- We'll show you the photos as we shoot. This means you'll know what you're getting and won't be surprised later on with images that make your face look too round or have awkward expressions. We encourage you to be critical because we have quick fixes if there's something you don't like about the photo. In most cases, there's a non-Photoshop way to fix things naturally so that you're working with the best possible images from the get-go.
- We won't let you down. Because of the process we've developed, it's unlikely you'll be unhappy with your photos, especially since you get to see them during the shoot. However, if we were to ever let you down, we'll offer you a completely free reshoot or refund you the full cost of the session.
Not Sure Yet?
Hire the Right Photographer for You.
If you're still shopping around for a photographer, we want to make sure whoever you choose does the best possible job. Keep in mind these things when looking:
- The photographer must specialize in headshots. Don't hire someone who focuses on weddings or architecture because headshots are a very challenging branch of photography. A poor expression or improper lighting can actually hurt you more than having no headshot at all! Another interesting thing to note is that headshots are different than portraits.
- The photographer should direct you and know what will work for you as an individual. Everyone is different and we've heard photographers just say to clients, "Do your thing." That means nothing and you'll probably wind up feeling very awkward because of it. Speak to the photographer over the phone and make sure they have a great personality, are easy to get along with, and will completely direct you during the shoot.
- The photographer must shoot you on the right backdrop. Different backgrounds say different things to an audience, and depending on whether you're in finance or technology, or whether you're using your photo on LinkedIn or for online dating purposes, the background and overall look of the shot should be different. Check out industry background trends here.
- The photographer must be insured or they could sue you. Did you know that in New York State, if you're paying a photographer and they get injured while working for you, they can legally sue you to pay their worker's comp and medical bills? Even if the injury takes place at their own studio! Most photographers don't have the proper insurance, so be careful when hiring.
- The photographer should not charge you extra for images after the shoot. We've heard from clients on numerous occasions that previous photographers they worked with took their photos for $250 and then watermarked all their images and told them after the fact that they would have to pay $40 for EACH image they wanted to use. Make sure whoever you hire gives you access to ALL your high-resolution images after your shoot.
- The photographer needs to show you the photos during the shoot. If they don't do this, it means you'll have no idea what you're getting, and you could wind up being surprised with a set of photos you hate because they were all taken on your bad side or with a background you didn't want.
