Business Headshot 

Today, your face represents you and, often, the first sense of who you are to the business world.

A well-crafted, current professional business headshot gives you, your company, corporation, or other organization that great first impression that speaks to the quality of your personal and business brands.

Because being in front of the camera is not something most people are comfortable with, it’s important to have a very experienced and well-trained professional portrait photographer, like Doug Gifford, who can immediately put you at ease with his professionalism and people skills to create the business image that most reflects you.

Doug has trained with the best in the world as a portrait artist and photographed thousands of people – from business icons to boards of directors to executive teams to business owners to non-profit leaders to first-time job entrepreneurs and job seekers and others in between to capture their essence.  He understands both the techniques and psychology of how to help you match your brand and make you look your best by selecting the right background, lighting, posing, camera, and lens for the visual message you are trying to create. Doug has looked into thousands of pairs of eyes and can see quickly what works best for your face and coach you with ease and confidence into that perfect expression that reflects who you are and for the use you wanted.

Doug will guide you through the experience to make sure you get what you desire – and you just might have a little fun along the way.
