How Much Time Does a Headshot Take?
When preparing for a headshot session, a question that I get frequently is “how much time does a headshot take”? And like everything in photography, the answer is, “it depends.” I know that’s not particularly helpful. So, here are some general ideas when it comes to timing for headshots. If it’s an individual session for one person, we can spend anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on the number of outfits, setups, and images needed. Corporate headshot sessions are quicker. First, I will set up lighting and backdrop in a nice space in your office (usually a conference room or similar space). Then, I like to have a test subject come in and we will test the lighting to make sure everything is set perfectly. Finally, we are ready to roll! At this point, I can spend anywhere between a couple of minutes to about 15 minutes per person. Some folks will need more time and others will not. I’m happy to spend the extra time with those that want it. We are usually perfecting hair and clothing and I’d rather have it right and approved when they walk away. We want everyone to love their headshots!
Headshots for Global Edge Consultants
I have photographed the members of Global Edge Consultants on several occasions for headshots. This latest round included new employees and a couple of re-takes. After setting up in the conference room with background and lighting, I was ready to go. These ladies helped each other to be sure hair was just right and clothing was perfected. A sister company needed a different look. So I switched to the white background and changed the lighting a bit and the last two headshots were ready to be photographed. I was able to get in and out quickly with minimal disturbance to their work day.
