Headshot Photographer for Individuals and Teams
When searching for business photographers or a professional headshot photographer near you, keep us in mind for business headshots and portraits on location or in studio for individuals, groups and teams. We are one of the best Santa Barbara headshot photographers for business and actor headshots and can photograph business photos with studio backgrounds to match existing employee headshots for a website, using a marketing firm or PR lighting and posing spec sheet, using green screen for compositing, and/or specific office or architectural backgrounds to match specific Pantone colors. We rent a beautiful fully furnished photo studio here in downtown Santa Barbara. We also offer tiered volume headshot pricing for teams of three or larger and discounts to all nonprofit organizations. All business headshots receive a style guide and posing videos and a branding discovery form to help you look and feel your best as well as a discovery form to create an aligned and true expression of you. For brand makeovers or image assets for a brand new website it is often helpful to consider a branding photographer to help you anticipate and solve your business needs.
How Much Do Headshots Cost?
Business headshots and branding headshots in Santa Barbara generally range from approximately $175 on the low end at JC Penney and other discount portrait studios or craigslist photographers all the way up into $1500 and up for high end commercial celebrity or branding photographers. Actor headshot and business headshot pricing is based both on the time involved and the number of “looks” or outfits/scenarios you would like to visually create. In general, a junior level headshot photographer in Santa Barbara charges between $300-$500 for a session and the higher end more experienced photographers charge more, both because their experience saves you time and the aggravation of being practiced on and also because they generally have nicer and more equipment and often studio space.
My one look headshot session starts at $395, including an online gallery of approximately 75 selects and retouching of your top three favorites. Additional looks are $100. I also offer a $100 discount for bringing a friend, discounts for students and nonprofits as well as volume discounts for teams and groups of four or more.
