Whitney Cline, photographer

Finding the right headshot photographer can be tricky, and getting the desired results is even more of a crap-shoot. I know. I was a working actress for many years, and I had my fair share of high expectations dashed by average-looking headshots. Why was that?

Fast-forward, after I’d decided to leave acting, I found myself working for a personal design specialist. She was an expert in seeing a person’s individualized color palette and innate physical design. I found it fascinating, and as I worked in the back of the room, listening and observing intently, I began to make my own assessments.

It was during this time that I found the answer to why some people get great pictures and others don’t, and it comes down to this: Is your wardrobe highlighting who you are, or is it hiding who you are? Your clothing and accessories should be a seamless extension, accentuating what’s already there.

Now, pair that with your intention for getting head-shots. You want a photo of yourself that serves a purpose. Essentially, whether you’re an actor, a musician, writer, model, or an executive, you need a photo that sells YOU. Your headshot should be the very best version of you; and, it should do what you want it to do, which is open up doors of possibility.

This is where my process as a photographer differs from most. I’m not here to take your photo and take your money. I’m here to assist you in presenting the BEST looking you – the most confident, relaxed, you there is.

Being a good photographer is about seeing – it’s not just about pushing the button and knowing the technical aspects. You’ve really got to see and intuitively feel a person for who they truly are. This is my passion, and I love my process. My intention as a photographer is to give my clients photos that actually work and that fulfill their purpose.

Once we get to the actual shoot, so much thought and precision has gone into the production design that it’s cake!

Brainstorm

We meet. We talk. We get to know one another a little, and we discuss your intentions. We talk about your personal color palette and design, and we talk about how we’re going to use that to get you what you want. You then leave with a very specific to-do list in terms of wardrobe. You go off, look in your closet, go shopping, etc.

Wardrobe

When you are ready with your selections, we meet again. This is to demo your wardrobe, snap a few test shots, and see what’s working and what’s not. Once we’re in agreement we schedule a shoot date. The hard part is now over.

Shoot

Once we get to the actual shoot, so much thought and precision has gone into the production design that it’s cake! Every single one of my clients agrees that they’ve never had a better shoot. They feel confident and relaxed, and so do I, because we both know exactly what you want.

Retouch

The final stage is selecting your shots for retouching. Your shots are uploaded to an online gallery, which you can share with agents, managers, friends, etc… What you get in the end is a CD or DVD, with all of your shots and retouches (or I can dropbox them to you). If needed, I can assist in getting your images in their proper form to a printing house.
