Executive portraits and headshots are photographed on location or in a studio setting. Photographs may be taken at a specific location and background of your choice, or using one of our standard backdrops. Pricing is based on an hourly rate, the number of locations, the amount of time estimated for the session, and whether or not additional assistance is required. Minor photographic retouching is included.  See below (Post Processing) for additional information. Executive portrait photography is provided with full licensing for unlimited use. When your professional headshot or portrait is photographed in studio, the camera is tethered to a PC making it possible for you to see the results and make your selections on the spot.
