Company Headshots

For companies with more than 5 employees it’s usually best to do the headshots session on site: the ‘studio’ can be set up in an office, board room, warehouse, etc.

Following an approach not unlike the High-volume Product Photography model, the photography is charged per image, with the price per photo getting lower the more final images are delivered, as follows:

 

Minimum charge: $ 395.00 (Includes the first 5 participants [1 photo per person])

5-9$ 95.00 ea.
10-19$ 85.00 ea.
20-29$ 75.00 ea.
30-39$ 65.00 ea.
40-49$ 55.00 ea.
50+$ 45.00 ea.

‘Headshot’ v. ‘Portrait’

The definitions of these two terms seem to be as varied as the number of photographers; thus, in order to avoid confusion and to explain the difference in pricing between the two, here is how these two terms are used by Diamant Studios:

Headshot will mean, for the most part, a ‘head and shoulders’ photograph of a person. The framing can be tighter or looser, but the essence of the photograph remains a close-up on the person’s face. While more than one pose and expression can be obtained, the lighting and backgrounds tend to remain consistent. Headshot sessions tend to be shorter than Portraiture sessions.

Portraiture encompasses, in addition to face close-ups, half- and/or full-body shots, environmental portraits, and a number of different poses, looks and angles. As a result, Portraiture sessions tend to be longer than one hour, as they might require different lighting setups and/or backgrounds.

Notes:

  • Additional retouched images: $45/each for headshots; $75 for portraiture.
  • Except where specified, fees do not include prints: all photos are delivered as digital files. Prints are, however, available in several sizes and media (paper, canvas, aluminium, etc.), please enquire for pricing.
  • All prices are plus taxes and subject to change at any time without notice.
