Business Headshot Photographer
Business Headshot Photographer, Peter Nutkins, helps you stay ahead of the game with modern studio headshots that show your confidence, professionalism, and approachability.
Every client I work with is unique, and each image I capture has to reflect their individuality and personality. Whether you run a small, medium, or large business, corporate headshots are an integral part of your success. Corporate headshots are my speciality.
In addition to studio-style headshots, I also provide a full service as a corporate photographer including CEO/Board photos, annual report images, general business images as well as corporate event photos.
You may consider yourself handsome, good-looking, or even drop-dead gorgeous - but what makes great headshots are ones that demonstrate you are positive and confident, as well as ensuring that you appear approachable.
I help you do that in front of a camera, even if you hate having your photo taken.
Your Professional Headshot
If your goal is to connect with people, enhance your career, or grow your business, invest in working with a professional business headshot photographer. Business headshots are essential to be viewed as professional.
When your headshot exudes confidence and professionalism, it's more likely that you will appear approachable. Approachability leads to greater success. We all know that impressions are formed quickly. Now, more than ever, as first impressions are made increasingly digitally, it is important to convey your professionalism straight away.
Rely on me to coach you during your session. Demonstrate your inner confidence with a great business headshot. Quite literally, getting a great headshot really does mean that you can "Make Your Image Work for You."

Frequently asked questions
How do you work with me during my session?
Most people I work with do not like having their photo taken, but know that epic headshots give a huge boost to their personal brand. Your headshot is all about how you market yourself. I can show you how to look confident, professional, and trustworthy in front of my camera. Coaching is my key to success. I will coach you to look your best. It is that simple. It is still a photo of you, but on your best day. Ever.
How do I choose which image I like?
At the end of your session, you get to look at your images and choose the ones that you like. We are all naturally biased to look for imperfections and things that we do not like. Other people see us differently and focus on other things. I will be there to guide you as a professional who has seen countless headshots. Imagine that I am your next client. I will be able to tell you which photo makes you look the most confident and approachable. I will then retouch the image(s) you have selected.
What is retouching?
Retouching is a part of the production process after your headshot session. I retouch all my images by hand, in-house. This entails smoothing stray hairs, removing blemishes, softening under-eye circles, colour correcting, and more. I strive to keep your images natural, with the retouching being extremely subtle. I do not want you to feel like you are plastic or fake! It's important that texture remains on the face for your image to look natural (not like you are made of plastic). Your headshot should actually look like you!
What about your painterly signature style?
I am known for my signature painterly style portraits. These are good fun and something a bit different. If you like the look of this style, there is no additional cost - I just need to know beforehand as the process of capturing and retouching your image is quite different.
How are my images given to me?
Your fully retouched image(s) will be delivered in JPEG format via my secure online gallery. You will have the right to use that image on the web, in all of your social media, in print, and in any other format that you like. There is no media, time, or location limit on your usage rights.
What is the best advice you can give me as I prepare for my session?
This is a great question. First of all, take care of yourself! Eat well, drink lots of water, and take good care of your skin. Now is not the time to try a new skin treatment. Stay out of the sun as much as possible, and get a lot of sleep. If you colour your hair or need a cut, make sure that you do this at least a week in advance so that the cut can settle down and the colour can settle in before your shoot. Try to not tweeze or do any hair removal in the days leading up to the shoot. Men, if you’d like a clean-cut look, you're welcome to shave before the shoot or during the shoot as desired. If you want to start with a beard or any facial hair, make sure that you have plenty of time to grow it before your shoot date.
What should I do the night before to prep for my shoot?
Nothing! The night before is when you should be sleeping, resting, and feeling relaxed. Get a good night's sleep the night before. Don't go out drinking, don’t stay up too late, and don't get too stressed!
What about makeup?
My recommendation is to wear the same amount as you normally would to a business meeting. If anything, go a tad lighter than usual. I can enhance makeup when retouching, but it is difficult to take it away. Matte makeup under studio lights is much more flattering than shimmer or shine.
I am looking for everyone in my organisation to be photographed. How much will that cost, and how long will it take?
Our Corporate Sessions are designed for groups of people that need a consistent style for their brand. Many companies have an ongoing relationship with us that allows their new team members to have their photos taken at a reduced rate. Our group rates are discounted based on the number of people being photographed. To estimate the cost for your group, contact us to discuss the scope of your project, and get specific pricing for your organisation.
Can I reschedule my session if I get sick or something unexpected comes up?
I understand that life sometimes does not go to plan. Get in touch and I will do my best to rearrange a time that's good for us both.
What time of day do you shoot headshot sessions? What day of the week? What about weekends?
I am available at your location from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
I totally and completely hate being photographed. Can you help me?
Almost every client I work with says something like, "I hate being photographed." "When I have to look at the camera, I just freeze up." "I have never had a photo session that I enjoyed." Trust me, it doesn’t have to be like any of the above statements! I promise that I will do everything in my power to make you comfortable and happy. I promise to bring understanding and kindness to your shoot and create a great space for you to feel calm, empowered, and ready to not hate the process of being photographed!
Can I have my boyfriend/girlfriend/colleague/mum/cat be with me while we shoot?
If you want to have someone with you, you can. However, I want you to think about it before you decide! While it might be super fun to have someone to chat with or to have a familiar face in the room, sometimes that can backfire and make you more nervous. It can sometimes be easier to pose and be photographed in front of people you don't know as well (namely, me!) and more uncomfortable to have someone you know there!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF Hiring a PROFESSIONAL?
Having professional headshots makes a real statement about your commitment to quality, professionalism, and communication. Here are some tangible benefits you will enjoy:
1. Enhance your image among prospective clients.
If you are in a profession that requires some seriousness, you should pay careful attention to the image that you portray. A great image can act as a calling card, attracting potential customers. Keep in mind that today, image is everything.
2. A high-quality photo will make your clients remember you.
You want clients to remember you and the services that you offer. Your photo is "selling" you. Companies spend tens of thousands on getting fantastic product images because they know that it helps make sales.
3. Getting a headshot enhances your confidence.
Overcoming British reserve and getting a cracking profile image will give you a discernible lift. When you look good, your confidence is likely to improve and you are likely to feel better about yourself. Not only will you be more memorable to an interviewer or client, but you will also feel more confident when talking to them.
4. Images really do speak louder than words.
Barnard's 1920s ad slogan, "One Look Is Worth A Thousand Words," is so true. People decide what you are like and whether they want to interact with you in just a few seconds. This is almost entirely based on what you look like!
