Vancouver Headshot Photographer – In Studio with Victor

Victor was referred to us by another prominent headshot photographer in Vancouver. He was looking for professional, in studio headshots and we were happy to take him on as a client. One of the first things he admitted to us when he showed up was that he “had never taken a professional photo before” and while that can be a daunting task sometimes, we are always up for the challenge!


As it turns out, Victor was a bit of a natural in front of the camera and it didn’t take long before we were able to coax a few friendly and confident photos out of him.


Victor is a VP of a real estate development firm in Richmond, B.C. and a well known figure in that sector of the corporate world. It was a pleasure to have him in studio and he can now enjoy the 40% discount for any updated images he might need in the coming years!

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.
