The top two styles that work every time


Indoor headshots

are a great way to ensure that you have professional pictures taken of yourself. They're simple and easy, with the ability for more control over what's being captured in each shot due to less windy conditions or other factors outdoors where shooting indoors gives up some flexibility but allows even greater creativity when capturing an outfit look exactly as desired!


Outdoor headshots

are perfect for people who don't like having their picture taken. They also work well as an excellent choice of photography with actors, because casting directors respond better to outdoor shots than indoor ones!
