Artist Headshots by Bauman Photographers

Our team deeply believes in the thriving artist community here in San Diego & Los Angeles, which is why we are so proud to offer Artist Headshots in a style that truly helps your talent shine!

Two of our team members, Kelsey (Sales Director) and Weston (Photographer) are both performers themselves, so they developed our Artist Headshots in collaboration with local performers and producers who were tired of walking away with lackluster looks from their photo sessions. 

The results have been breathtaking! Musicians, singers, and actors are walking away from our studio with fresh portfolios that reveal their talent, show off their multiple looks, and move their careers forward.

Learn more about our collaborative process and book your session with us below.

In-Person Consultation

When you arrive, we’ll sit down with you to talk about your brand & personality to make sure we understand the looks you desire.

Full Licensing

Every session includes full licensing of one final image, and you can purchase as many additional images as you’d like.

In-Person Review

You and your photographer will review your images live during  the shooting process to make sure we’re achieving the looks you want.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What color backdrops do you offer?

We use a standard grey backdrop for most of our Artist Headshots, and we also offer a white backdrop. Let us know where you’ll be using your headshots, and we may be able to offer a recommendation on what would be best for you.

How will I select which images I want?

While you’re shooting here in the studio, your photographer will review the images with you in-person to be sure you’re getting exactly what you need. At the end of the session, you’ll make your final selections and be done by the time you leave!

What if I can’t just choose one image? What if I want more later?

If you want to select more than one image after your session has taken place, we do offer bulk rates! However, our BEST offer is to select your images in-studio, so don’t delay!

  • 1-4 Additional Images: $75/image
  • 5-9 Additional Images: $60/image
  • 10-19 Additional Images: $55/image
  • 20+ Additional Images: $50/image
What should I wear?

We recommend clean, crisp, and simple. Be sure to steam or iron your clothes before the shoot, and opt to change into your outfit once you arrive to avoid wrinkling. Avoid bold patterns and chunky jewelry, and keep it simple and classic.

We love when our Artists bring multiple options so we can help you decide!

Do you recommend that I get my hair and makeup done?

For best results, we recommend getting your hair and makeup done professionally, and we work with the stylists at Diesel Salon in Kensington.

Let us know at the time of booking if you’d like to add-on our hair and/or makeup options and we’ll make the arrangements for you!

Can you remove my laugh lines?
For any image selected for licensing and retouching, our editing team will do basic retouching so that you look your very best. This often includes smoothing skin, removing flyaway hairs, and softening wrinkles. If you have any specific requests, please let us know and we’re happy to see what we can do!
