Peter is the real deal!
Like many people, I don’t like
having my photo taken. I was skeptical. Peter was extremely professional and yet his laidback approach immediately put me at ease and made the session fun.
— Stephannie
Images that I really love
I am one of those people that rarely sees a photo of myself that I actually like. I was searching headshot photographer - but I may as well have been searching “miracle worker”. I am in awe at the photos he captured.

Is it time to update your selfie to a captivating professional headshot?

Company logos represent a brand and their story to the world. Your headshot is like what a "logo" is to a company.

Your headshot, or "logo", helps your audience recognize you, identify you, and select you, before anyone else.

Business Headshots

Professional images for LinkedIn, websites, and personal branding.

It is a visual world, make sure your headshot is a good one.


Most people don't like having their photo taken.

I am good at making people feel comfortable infront of the camera.

A few laughs during your headshot session is part of the experience.

I create an empowering experience and capture professional headshots that you will be excited to share with your friends and business networks.
