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.

Vancouver Headshot Photographer – Dean Hassan

Dean Hassan, a new realtor for Sutton Group West Coast Realty, was looking for headshots to promote his business. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that he picked our portraits from the hundreds available on a simple google image search. What a compliment!


Although he was a bit apprehensive at first, Dean settled in quite nicely. Having just gotten his realty license, Dean was eager to start taking on clients and it was nice to hear that having solid headshots was one of his top priorities. We can’t wait to see him again in a few years to update his images and ask how his business is doing.

Vancouver Headshot Photographer – Kenny Chue

Highline West was lucky enough to have Kenny find us on his Facebook feed. Seeing Jessie’s headshot session galvanized Kenny to contact us out of the blue for some business headshots. And although it took a bit of coordinating before we could actually get him in studio (between his job transition and moving back to Vancouver from Victoria), we are very pleased with the results!


Kenny is currently aspiring to attain his CFA designation and is already looking forward to moving into an accounting practice of his own!

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! More information about our headshot packages and discounts can be found here:

Highline West is making the rounds!

The Onni Group ( has been a great client for our architectural and real estate work. Our images have been featured on many of their new development websites as well as a few print advertisment campaigns. And most recently our photos have been spearheading the Onni Group’s new development email marketing initiative.

We can’t thank the Onni Group enough for their continued patronage and we’re excited to see what their next gig might hold in store for us!

If you would like to know more about our images then please do not hesitate to contact us and if you’re in the market for a newly developed home in and around Vancouver then be sure to look the Onni Group up!

Vancouver Actor Headshots – Jessie Cheng

Jessie had experience playing an extra in T.V. shows and commercials in the past but had fallen out of the game to pursue other career opportunities. Having recently been recruited by a casting agent for a UK financial institution commercial that will be shown during the next world cup, she couldn’t help but have her interest in acting rekindled. Signing with the casting agency, her first step towards stardom was to get some headshots for her portfolio.

That’s where Highline West came in.

Although there were a few jitters in front of the camera, Jessie settled in quite quickly and we nailed down three looks that should compliment her looks and help her agent land her a few more jobs. We can’t wait to see where she takes her acting career!

Vancouver Headshots: Jordan for Primal Tribe

We here at Highline West love referrals.

In fact we love them so much that we offer discounts for any referral business that we get! That’s why we were more than happy to drop our already competitive prices for Jordan Woolf of Primal Tribe (, which is a marketing and design firm with offices in Vancouver, Edmonton & Calgary. Jordan is spearheading his business on the west coast and thought it would be a great idea to put a face to the company name.

Having never taken professional headshots before, our client was a bit apprehensive at first, but it didn’t take long to get some approachable, professional and inviting images. And with the money saved from our referral discount Jordan even opted for an additional edit over and above the three we include in our headshot packages, which still put his total invoice below our current rates!

We wish Primal Tribe all the best in their move to Vancouver and we can’t wait to see how our work is used to promote their business!

Vancouver Headshots & Architecture Photography – Vida Eye Care

If you’ve been following us recently you may have noticed that the Highline West website has undergone a few changes. An expansion into architectural/real estate photography as well as an updated portfolio have kept us happily busy over the past couple of months. It is for this reason that we were extra excited to get an inquiry from Dr. Gloria Lee of Vida Eye Care, because not only was she looking for professional headshots, but she also wanted images featuring her new storefront and examination rooms.

It was a lot of fun working with Dr. Lee as her retail space felt new and inviting. Even more importantly her ready smile and knowledgeable confidence showed up great on camera and came in handy when she came to the aid of an emergency walk-in patient mid photo shoot.

We can’t wait to see her headshot and architectural images in print and on her website: And if you’re looking for a friendly eye doctor in the Fairview area of Vancouver, please don’t hesitate to contact Vida Eye Care.


Vancouver Real Estate Photography – Onni Level: Furnished Living

There is no greater compliment for your services than return business. That’s why Highline West is ecstatic about our recent string of work for the Onni Group. Most recently we were commissioned to refresh the images for Level: Furnished Living in Vancouver, which is a short term stay residential hospitality venture. The friendly staff there were welcoming and helped us spruce up the pool and lobby area with fresh towels and floral arrangements.

Highline West is so grateful to the Onni Group for their continued patronage and we can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us!

Vancouver Headshot Photographer – Rey Halim for Royal Pacific Realty

Depending on how you look at it, Vancouver can be considered either a big place or a small one. I mean sure, the area is pretty densely populated and far reaching, but at the same time everyone seems to know everyone else. That’s why it was a bit of a treat for us to hear that Rey stumbled across our headshot work a bit randomly and liked it enough to book us right away!

Rey is a newer realtor servicing the Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond areas. With a background in property inspection and assessments, his knowledge and experience in real estate is practical and relavent. Friendly and always quick to smile, Rey made our job look easy as he talked about the housing market and displayed a genuine passion for his work.

We wish Rey the best of luck in his real estate career and we can’t wait to see how our headshots work for him.
