Why get a professional headshot?

Today more than ever before, it's vitally important it is to have a great headshot, whether it is to project your trustworthiness and approachability  to potential clients, to ensure a consistent image of your business' team, to stand out from the pack to a future employer, or to make the best first impression on a dating app, your profile picture carries a lot of significance.


I'm here to  help.

How it works:

1. Let's schedule a session.

It couldn't be more convenient to make new headshot portraits: weekdays, weekends, daytime or evening, your session can be anytime that's best for your schedule.

2. Let's talk about your goals.

What is the image you're trying to portray? Does your business have a style with which you'd like to fit? How formal or creative would you like to get?
Wardrobe changes, particular locations, in-studio or environmental, I can accommodate it all and make new portraits of which you'll be mightily proud.

3. Let's relax.

Few people really enjoy having their picture taken. In understand this, and make it my mission to provide an experience that's as smooth and stress-free as possible. When you step in front of my camera, I will put you at ease with specific, detailed instructions, regular sharing of the pictures we're making so you can see how great you look, and attention to the details of your hair, clothing, and accessories, so you can focus on letting your best self shine through.

4. Let's review.

Within 48 hours of your session (faster if you need it), you'll receive an online gallery of all the best portraits we created together. You can peruse this gallery at your leisure, and share with friends and family for more input. Once you've picked your favourites, just let me know.

5. Let's polish them up.

Once I have your selections, I will perform any necessary colour correction, as well as some light retouching. I prefer to take a light hand with this, removing temporary blemishes and taking care of flyaway hairs and lint on clothing, basically making you look your best; I can, however accommodate special requests for specific retouching.

6. Let's put them to use.

When your new portraits are finished, I will send them to you in both high resolution and web-ready versions, so you can make prints or easily share online using optimized files.

7. Let's settle up.

After you have your new portraits in hand, I'll send you an invoice payable by eTransfer, cheque, or credit card.

A bit about your photographer.

My name's Dan MacDonald, and after a number of years in communications and marketing, as well as three years as a stay-at-home dad, I began my career as a professional photographer in 2013. Growing from a family portrait-focused endeavour to my current list of mostly commercial clients, Purple House Photography has given me the opportunity to meet great people, learn about the wide swath of career paths Albertans take, and indulge in my creative drive to make great portraits.

My goal is to produce work that you love. "This is the best picture anyone's ever made of me," is the highest complement I can receive.

Let's work together.
