I follow all up-to-date protocols.
Straightforward. Simple, yet saying so much. It's not just "So they know what I look like."
Because what they really want to know is if they can trust you: trustworthiness.
If you're approachable. This implies a good working relationship.
If you're confident. This implies competence.
You've already got the stuff. I simply collaborate with you to bring it out so it's what others see, too. I'm an expression coach, a wardrobe consultant, and a personal marketer for your headshot, and my camera is the tool to put it on your page, wherever that may be.
The headshot. Perfect for profile pictures everywhere, be it LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, company website, and on the list goes (and grows, it seems!).
Once you've got in touch, I will send you an email for preparation, to set us up for a smooth professional headshot session, whether in my Orillia studio or on location. This includes tips on wardrobe, hair, accessories and makeup.
I'll be shooting your headshots or portraits tethered, which means my camera is connected to a monitor, which means we can see details about your shot better than on that tiiiiny little square on the back of my camera. This helps with coaching!
As an expression coach, I will be helping you forget about the camera by having a lot of fun with coaching. The best expressions are the spontaneous ones, and my process brings that out. In addition, I'll be teaching you tips that will build your confidence and look for all your future photo ops.
At the end of our session, we will go over your headshots for you to choose your favourites. Whatever your needs for a headshot, I'm here to help you run your race!
Sometimes you want to add a little extra of your personality into your introduction.
Business portraits are ideal for websites and various social media posts, as well as publications in magazines and online articles.
When your location plays a big part of what you do, it can help clients really get a feel for your business.
And you in your natural environment.
These are so helpful on your website and social media posts, as well as for publications in magazines and online.
"What an amazing experience!! I usually feel totally awkward in front of the camera. Lynda not only took incredible photos, but she showed me how the subtle differences in my expression could really make for a great picture! I felt incredibly confident the entire time!! Thank you for such a fun session!" --Alisa Herriman, National Marketing Director for Juice Plus+, Executive Marketing Director for Juice Plus+AND YOU CAN BOOK WITH ME TOO!
"I booked Lynda for my new headshots for my website and social media platforms and she knocked it out of the park! Not only is she a phenomenal photographer, but she makes the process so much fun!" --Thomas Heidman, professional freelance videographerWELL LET'S DO THIS THEN!
Maybe you're more than a force of one (or of nature). You've got a whole team playing ball together.
Show your audience and clients who's batting for them.
Or maybe you actually are rockstars...
"These are not headshots, Lynda."
I know, I know. But it's for a billboard!
I've photographed a wide variety of genres, but for me, nothing can beat taking a portrait of a person. It may be a classical portrait, a headshot, a composite, but it is a wonderful thing to have them in front of my camera. Then I have the privilege to do something with my skill, and give them something that will boost their confidence, warm their heart, help move their career, build their legacy.
I take my profession seriously. Part of that is having a lot of fun with my clients to make it a wonderfully memorable experience. That goes into a great headshot for them.
Oh, yes, I'm also a Canadian from New Brunswick, who lived in Japan and Iceland, and now lives a little north of Toronto in Oro-Medonte, with a studio in Orillia. I have five kids and a lot of laundry (ok, so they're older now and mostly moved out). And also, I like animals. T-Rexs are my favourites. You can tell.
