Corporate and Event Photography

Personal brand

A Headshot is nothing but the first impression of your Digital Personal Brand.

Throughout time,  successful careers have been built without a LinkedIn Profile. But more likely than not, every single one of those individuals had a strong professional network behind them.  Today more than ever, due to the increasingly high rate of change in technology, the only thing resembling job security is a strong personal network. These people are the ones that can lead you to your next opportunity. They are now spending time online as part of their day-to-day, and they are waiting to connect with you there as well.

Mauricio Flores

From Engineer to Photographer

I immigrated from El Salvador in 2010 to pursue a career in Petroleum Engineering. While living on the SAIT campus, most of my neighbors were part of different art programs at ACAD, and it was then that for the first time, I realized that a career as a photographer was not out of reach anymore. Fast forward to 2018, after 7 years as a Reservoir Engineer in the Oil and Gas industry I transitioned into becoming a full-time photographer/videographer. 

Over my time as a Reservoir Engineer, I was responsible of evaluating subsurface technologies to be deployed in the Oil Sands under a SAGD recovery scenario. It was very common for me to come across with start-ups and technology providers that didn’t have the best marketing collateral describing the value that they were able to provide to our company. This made it harder for me to try to sell my manager on the idea of investing time and money to evaluate their technology.

This insight is what leads to the idea of building a business around photography and video that helps technical experts and companies with the creation the same type of videos and photos that would have helped these professionals deploy their technologies in the field and make the industry better by improving the way that our resources are being extracted.

frequently asked question

Have a Question?

You can find the pricing of most of my standard services in the Individual Service Page. If those services don’t fit your scope feel free to contact me directly so I can provide a more accurate estimate.

I offer both on-location and in-studio Staff Headshot Sessions. If you have an office, I suggest me coming to you so we make the most efficient use of your staff’s time.

It depends on the type of services you are looking for. LinkedIn Profile Headshot Sessions are delivered within 1 business day after the shoot. An Staff Corporate Headshot Session for ~10 subjects usually takes between 3-6 business days.

Over the years I’ve worked with several Professional Make Up Artist that I feel comfortable recommending to my clients. If you are interested, I can pass their contact information for you to coordinate with them.

Every session I shoot, I shoot tethered to a computer where we can see the photos as we take them. This is a fundamental part of my process as it helps you see what the directions I give during the session look like.

Before you leave your session you will have chosen the images that will be retouched.  That’s why we I shoot tethered so there are no surprises of what we create. After you leave the studio I cannot do much  to change the output, retouching only goes so far. In special scenarios I will offer a second session at a discounted price if I made a mistake.

Every photo on each of the different sessions/packages is retouched. Retouching includes: color and exposure correction, blemishes removal, teeth whitening, skin redness correction, background clean up. 

After contract has been signed I will provide you with a Styling Guide PDF to help you prepare for your session, this includes Wardrobe selection.

The length of the photoshoot varies depending on the session/package that you are interested in and the final number of images and looks that you require. For a one individual LinkedIn Profile Photo the length of the session is around 20-30 minutes. For a Corporate Personal Branding Session, it can last between 45-90 minutes. I will go over all this details during our consultation.

THe JOURNEY
TO EXPERTISE

How do you get better at your craft?

As a professionals/technical experts looking for your next opportunity I bet you’ve heard something like this: “you need to market yourself” or “you need to build your personal brand”. Both statements are true, however, very few people will tell you how to do that. I was in the same boat when I was a Reservoir Engineer.

I believe that whether we acknowledge it or not, we all have a Personal Brand, we just know it as Reputation instead. Therefore, if this is true, the same marketing principles that have built brands over the years can be used to help you attain your next professional opportunity.

I know that a headshot won’t get you your next job or close the next sale, but I know that when the gate keepers of the opportunities you are seeking are trying to figure out if they want to work with you, a great headshots will communicate that you are someone approachable and confident in what you do, which is a great place to start.
