FAQ and TIPS -Professional Headshots and Business Photography Toronto
Your Headshot needs to represent your Brand. Brand is who you are, who you want to be, and how you are perceived. Your professional headshot is the first impression of your Brand. The headshot session needs to take the following into consideration:
- Wardrobe selection(s)
- Expression – amount of smile or not?
- Posing – standing, angle/leaning or perhaps sitting?
- Portrait crop or aspect ratio – square for LinkedIn or wide for website? Perhaps specific print or resolution requirement.
- The background for the headshot – photographer provided in studio or digitally composited?
Of course, I will assist with all of the above.

How much do Headshots cost?
The range in the pricing of professional headshots is quite diverse in the Toronto – GTA area. You can get a cheap headshot starting at $65 and as high as $750 and up for commercial Branding packages. The difference is primarily in the experience level of the photographer and access to a proper studio environment. A photographer likely needs to charge a higher rate to support a dedicated studio and higher end equipment. At David Chang Photography our rates are more or less in the value range. With a dedicated commercial photography studio located in Leslieville, (Queen Street East and Carlaw Avenue), our rates are not the lowest, but you will get a comfortable professional environment with the latest equipment to ensure a best in class experience.
A detailed breakdown of my rates and pricing is provided at my Rates and Pricing page.
I price my sessions based on a Look. A Look is a setup for the session which can include a wardrobe, background or lighting change. A retouched photo is provided for each Look.
How long is a LinkedIn or Branding Headshot Session and how many shots do I get?
I do not count time or shots. I take as many as we need and you are free to have them all. The time depends on you, if you have a killer smile with great clothes and posture your session can be just few shots in as many minutes. As we shoot your photos are reviewed on a 27 inch monitor. You never leave wondering whether we got the shot.
Generally, a Professional Headshot session is approximately a half hour to an hour for One Look and approximately 1.5 to 2 hour for multiple Looks.
If you have specific requirements let me know and I will work with you to achieve your goals.
What is Retouching?
Please check out my Retouching Page to see what is possible. Retouching for perfect model faces is pretty easy, but retouching everyday faces in the more mature age range requires experience to make you look your best naturally.
Is Makeup and Hairstyling available?
Yes, this can be arranged for you. Contact me for more information and rates.
What is your delivery time and format for my Headshots?
Typically, next day for proofs online via Google Drive and 3 days or less for the retouch from time of order. Same day available on request.
What should I wear? What should I bring?
Difficult to provide you with specific recommendations, but here is some guidance. Generally, darker shades shoot better. A jacket or blazer ideal for a professional look. Busy patterns distract from you, but can also give you a unique style. For headshots, bottoms do not usually matter unless you specifically want a 3/4 shot. However, the more body you include in your photo, the smaller your face and ability to show personality as a headshot. If you are not sure, the best advice is to bring options. We can test your wardrobe to see what works best for you. I can shoot ties on and off as well as glasses on and off at no extra charge.
What background options are available?
For each selected photo for editing, the background can include the original light to medium grey, all white background and/or transparent background in PNG format. I also have many options for environmental backgrounds, such as an office environment, window views of Bay Street and many more. The crop of the photo and resolution is your choice, best to consult your web guy.
