• The 2 Best Branding and Headshot Photographers in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA

    For your personal and/or business branding

    Branding and headshots are about promoting yourself and your small business. Your headshot is your virtual handshake to the world. Would you look more should you wear a suit, casual clothing, a tank top? Depends on your purpose. Suits are for more formal handshakes typically used for financial purposes. Tank tops maybe if you're a lifeguard or fitness instructor.

    I found Emily through an online search and thank goodness! She was wonderful to work with. Very professional and process-oriented. We did an intro call, then a strategy call. She walked me through all of the important aspects to consider for the shoot. She gave me a hair/makeup referral which was super helpful. She was very easy to work with on the day of the shoot. I just received my photos and they were exactly what I was looking for. I am an expert in my industry and need "lifestyle" photos for my social media efforts. I will be using Emily again!

    I'm Ed! And I'm a San Francisco Bay Area headshot and personal branding photographer (in addition to weddings, portraits, and fashion). I've done headshots and branding with a variety of people in the Bay Area including CEOs, CTOs, entrepreneurs, founders, managers, celebrity, and other professionals. I would describe my headshot style as contemporary that fits today's working Silicon Valley professional. My headshots will show your professionalism and approachability in your best light, and your best you when you decide to use it for personal use.

    I worked with Ed to update my professional head shot profile. Needless to say the experience was amazing and I am still receiving feedback on the picture.
    Ed arrived on time and worked tirelessly through a few weather challenges to get the ideal shot and turn around the final cut later in the evening! Nobody gives you that type of time and quality.
    Looking forward to working with Ed again on a future photo shoot. Highly recommended. :-)
