“I had the best experience with Zack! He took some headshots for me in his studio. It was my first time so I was fairly nervous, but he was so friendly and high energy that it calmed me rather quickly. His attention to detail matches (maybe even surpass) mine and I appreciated the experience and his direction during my entire session. I can’t wait to use him again!”

Headshots can show originality, Creativity, And Most Of All - You

Some industries require a business headshot to look and feel a certain way. My studio is well equipped to conform to image specs for lawyers, insurance agents, realtor headshots and much more. But what if you don’t fit into that spectrum? No problem. I will consult with you and find the right background, lighting scheme, and even help you with your style to give you the most unique headshot available.

Every business owner and their team gain extreme value from high quality professional business headshots for use on their website, social media, and business cards. I have been in the photography business for 20 years and I know the value of how an image represents your brand and value as a company. As a small business owner, I also know the importance of time management. My time is valuable in making my photoshoots run smoothly, my business efficient, and keeping my clients happy. I make this process easy on the scheduling, selection and delivery.

New Orleans Headshot Story Of The Month: Adventure Nannies

Professional Business Headshots in New Orleans the way YOU want them done.

Sometimes it is almost impossible to assemble your whole team in one place for new headshots. Your business model is imperative that your members are scattered around the country, even the world! I am grateful to have been able to photograph new team headshots for the amazing company Adventure Nannies, when they were in New Orleans for a recent conference. We talked and chose a close location to their meetings and were able to provide high quality headshots and group team shots in downtown New Orleans with great light, privacy, and quality. 

The next time you are in New Orleans for you conference or convention, consider taking an hour out of your day for some new headshots during your lunch or break. We can choose a location near you or I can setup a business headshot station at your break!

We worked with Zack at the 2015 NASPA National Conference in New Orleans. He came to one of our sessions and setup a photo area for NASPA members for updated digital head shots. Zack was a delight to work with throughout the entire project. From contract generation to final product delivery, he was professional, yet personable, and his work is of the highest quality. It was great working with Zack and if I’m ever in New Orleans again and in need of a photographer, he’ll be my first pick! Thanks again! – 5 Start Review: Matthew Brinton, NASPA National Conference, New Orleans, LA

A great experience, got just the right head shot options. And after working with Zack for more than a decade on many projects, I can attest to his professionalism, gifts, and the awesome space he’s opened on Magazine Street. Highly recommended. – 5 Star Review: Bryan Boyles, Louisiana Endowment for the Humanties, New Orleans

I always feel really awkward having my picture taken, and I don’t usually photograph well. Zack was really good at putting me at ease. There were so many good photographs taken during my session with him, I had a really hard time narrowing down my selection. – 5 Star Review: Stella Shackleford, Lawyer, New Orleans.

I had the chance to book a photographer to take free headshots of local businesses owners in New Orleans. Since I don’t live in the area I was only able to review people’s work and speak to them on the phone. From the second I got on the phone with Zack I knew he was the person for the job. His “can do” attitude, flexibility, and ability to incorporate suggestions on the fly makes him a great person to work with. On top of all that, he’s also a brilliant photographer. He’s able to make people feel confident in seconds and help them bring out their best. From intimate portraits to big events, or in complete chaos, Zack is able to capture beauty and the energy of the room/people. I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again. – 5 Star Review: Noelle McEntee, SQUARE Marketing
