Silicon Valley Headshots

Professional Headshot Photography for You and Your Company

Professional Headshots

Your headshot is not just for the first impression – it is for every impression. Emails, direct messages, and blog posts can now all include your profile image. Our image is present in all of our online interactions, so it is more important than ever to make sure it is the right image.


Build Trust

The quality of your profile image sends a strong message. What kind of message does a lazy, boring headshot send? Whatever it is, you don't want to be sending it. You want to be seen as friendly, confident, and, most importantly, honest and trustworthy. 


A Profesional Headshot Helps YOu



Your headshot should convey your confidence. I'll show you how to make sure your confidence comes through in photos. 




I'll make sure you also bring a touch of friendliness to the confidence to make a winning picture. Without any charm, the photo might appear mean or unapproachable, so this is critical to get right.



Of course, your appearance is vital, and how formal you want to depends mainly on how you want to be seen.


let's work together


Office Headshots

I'll bring a compact version of my studio to your office so I can create the same quality of images that I can do in my studio. I'll create a consistent set of images for your whole team, group, or company. Please contact us to receive a customized quote for your office. 


Professional Headshots

My professional headshot studio in central Santa Clara, Califorina, is a comfortable space in a small professional building. I use the high-end equipment to take the best headshot possible, and you'll be able to see the results on a computer during the session. 


Personal Branding

If you are ready to go beyond headshots, then we can work together to create a custom portfolio of images for your brand. A branding session includes a set of headshots with different looks, studio or environmental portraits, and even action shots doing what you love.

About me

My passion for photography started in my teens when I first learned how to make images come to life in the darkroom at a summer camp.  I went on to pursue a career as a software developer, but never dropped the photography bug. I continued to develop as a photographer, and slowly realized two things. My favorite photos were ones with people, and photography was far more fulfilling than my “day” job.  That initial teenage summer fling turned into a lifelong love, and after over 20 years writing code, I decided to pursue photography full time.
