Vancouver Corporate Portrait Photographer – Amanda Armstrong

Everyone is great at something and we would like to think portrait photography is in our wheelhouse.

Though we pride ourselves on being able to bring out the best in everyone, shy/awkward or otherwise, it really makes our day when we get a friendly face that makes our job look easy.

Amanda was just one of those people. She came in with a great attitude and a ready smile that allowed us to easily showcase her professional and friendly personality. Amanda was looking for a headshot to bolster her online profile as she set out to hunt for work in a new city. We’re happy to hear that she was hired as an Analytical Management Consultant at a large firm. We could pretend that our headshot work helped play a role in her new position, but Amanda’s experience and education (probably) had more to do with that. All kidding aside, Highline West would like to congratulate Amanda in her new job and wish her all the best in her future ventures!

Vancouver Headshots: Gammon International

It’s always great to get new business. I don’t think we’ll ever get tired of seeing new headshot or architectural enquiries in the old inbox. In fact, the only thing that might edge out fresh work is perhaps receiving jobs from friends. It’s always so rewarding find out that people you know have been keeping tabs on your business and that they’ll think of you right away when the time comes.

It’s for this reason that it was such a pleasure to have the Vice Presidents of Gammon International, Justin & Stan Chiu, in studio for a corporate headshot session. They are both long time friends who just happened to be updating the print ad campaign and website for their property management company. Suffice it to say we jumped on the opportunity to help them out and the whole in studio session turned out to be a lot of fun (and even more easy going than our cold call appointments)!

We can’t wait to see how their new ads and website turn out.

A great headshot should look like you.

Whether it’s for that next big acting role or to show your clients that you’re approachable and easy to work with, a great headshot should first and foremost look like you. The main purpose of a headshot is to not only convey what you look like, but also what you might be like as a person. A friendly demeanor can only help in a corporate atmosphere where working with others is a essential part of your business. Similarly for actors, showing a wide breadth of personality will help strengthen your chances at landing that next big part. Cramming all of that information into an instant that can be captured on camera is no small task, but the end result could mean the difference between compelling your desired audience to choose you or moving on.

So why should a headshot look like you? With all of the advances in photography and post processing, wouldn’t it work to your advantage to shape your look to exactly what your audience would want? While this line of logic seems justified, landing a client or job based on a falsified headshot will only work against you at the end of the day as the person on paper will not truly reflect the real individual when you meet in person.

We here at highline west realize the importance of having a great headshot and it is with that mindset that we work to ensure several principles are upheld. Firstly, we want to spend the time getting to know you. Nothing shows up better on camera than a comfortable and confident person. Secondly, we aren’t just concerned with capturing a sharp image (although that does carry its own importance), but we make sure to bring out the best and most intriguing/compelling elements of your personality on film. These vital headshot components, amongst many others, are just some of the things that set us apart from the competition.

Our headshot sessions are built around creating images that not only reflect you as a person, but in turn help you further yourself in your respective career. From our introductory coffee meeting, where we gauge your end goals and build a comfortable relationship, to our meticulous hand done photo editing, we pride ourselves our product, which is a great headshot of you.
