“Rich was great to work with. Very responsive and professional, felt completely at ease having to arrange the photo shoot from across the country and leaving it in his hands to meet the clients requirements.”
“Rich is professional, reliable, creative, and prompt and I can’t recommend him enough. Not only did he deliver on what we had originally hired him for, but he was consistently seeking ways to make the photos look as great as possible. I was so impressed by his ability to deliver the quantity we needed with such high quality. We look forward to having him back for our photography needs.” – Alison. Univision
“Richard is extremely professional and has a great eye for photography. My firm hired him to take new headshots for our 25 employees and not only did he take the time to accommodate our hectic schedule by coming on two separate days, we received our shots (retouched and all) on the same day as the shoot and they came out great! We are all very happy with our new photos and can’t wait to show them off when we update our website. Richard made the entire process flow quickly and seamlessly, and greatly exceeded our expectations; he is an absolute pleasure to work with and a genuinely nice person on top of it, which is very rare to find these days. I cannot recommend Richard enough. ” – Jennifer. Aufgang Architects
“Richard is a gem! He is a skilled photographer, takes direction, captures exactly what you need and does so with grace and without intrusion. He is on time, follows up and delivers the photos as instructed. I literally leave him with my clients for the entire day. As an Account Executive in the event industry I sometimes have several events on the same day. I trust Richard implicitly.” -Alicia Schiro. Kapow Events
“Rich is amazing. One of the best you can hire. Nothing but positive things to say about him.” – Andrew Zarian GFQNetwork.com
“Richard is talented, professional and does incredible work with an amazing turnaround period. In fact, I was so impressed with his photo retouching abilities on images that I needed for a magazine shoot, that I also hired him to design postcards for an upcoming documentary.”
–Titania D. Grace

“We hired Rich to do a four day job with a large client who needed photography for a large event. Rich knocked it out of the park with his work and we will be bringing him back next year for the same event.” – Bryan Pecelli. Marketing Genome
Professional headshots? What!? Most people hate having their picture taken. That’s a fact. It can make my job very interesting at times. However, you need at least one solid professional headshot in this day and age more than ever. Why? Well, professional headshots not only make you look like you take yourself that much more seriously but it puts a face to a potential hire, colleague, or client. That being your best face. We live in the digital age, which is a very visual age, it’s a very tap/swipe/snap age. How many apps do you have that let you scroll through photos? In those apps you have the ability to judge those photos if you like them or not. Think about that when you start your LinkedIn profile and decide to use the photo you took last summer at the keg party. The photo is a bit blurry, maybe grainy, and doesn’t show you in a professional light. Most folks go with THAT picture. That random party picture, a cropped group photo with your face as the center, or photos so old that you aren’t even recognizable. You can stand apart from the pack with a nice image. Professional headshots are a window into your personal brand, who you are, and what potential connections can expect. An engaging photo makes all the difference.
When you hear the word “headshot” you automatically think about actors, actresses, and models. The word “headshot” is closely associated with agents, agencies, and entertainment, which makes the average person think “Why do I need a professional photo? I’m not an actor!” That’s where you’re wrong. Everyone needs professional photos taken because this is a professional age. There is a renaissance of entrepreneurship, self starting, small businesses, crowd funded companies, and global personal projects. And because of social media we are all interconnected. Why not show whoever is looking for you a face to attach to your brand? You will get a few great photos to show people and that never hurts either. It doesn’t mean you’re self absorbed.
Of course I want you to get new photos because more business never hurts! But do them for yourself. It doesn’t matter where you work or what you do for a living. That profile photo speaks volumes of who you are. When you see someone’s professional headshots you automatically think to yourself that this individual means business and that means you WANT to do business with that person. I encourage you to book a shoot with me and make an impact with a great image as part of your personal branding.
