Luke Studios is a Twin Cities based commercial photography studio known for our ability to deliver a wide variety of professional headshots styles in our business portraiture. We understand body language, and we will help you pose properly to portray your confidence and spirit. Small variances in expression and pose equate to a big difference, and will help you look your very best with our attention to details.
We’ll discuss the mood and of your shoot, and offer a variety of lighting and background styles to meet your requirements. To keep things simple, print releases are provided without any additional license fees. We invite you to check out our packages and considerations below for additional details.
On this page, we cover the following topics:
We offer two standard professional headshots packages to meet your needs and budget. As you’d expect, there are a number of items INCLUDED with BOTH packages:
Additional terms and conditions apply, and we will provide you with that information with a contract upon booking your shoot.
At the bottom of this page, we have some planning considerations.
In addition to formal headshots, many of our business photography clients also need more specific commercial portraits and other conceptual photos for their marketing materials, annual reports, etc.
These photos are different than headshots in nature, and so is the approach we need to take. In most cases these photos take some additional planning and scouting, advanced lighting setups and other various production needs.
Need a photo of your executives power-posing in the atrium? Or perhaps a close-up shot of your architect’s hands marking up a draft to help reinforce a marketing message? Maybe a well-composed photo of your production engineer welding a product during an installation for a magazine cover?
In cases like these – where the nature of the use and the needs of the photoshoot are outside the scope of a headshot – we use our standard commercial fee model and pricing structure.
TIMING: Plan for at least an extra half hour after shoot if you are electing to make your selections on-site.
WHAT TO WEAR: Please select the appropriate wardrobe for your shoot, and bring extra options. We will help you choose from your selection. All clothing items should be neatly pressed prior to the shoot. Some clients choose to bring both dressy and casual wardrobe options for different looks. Give strong consideration to your accessories as well as the colors and patterns of your apparel. In general, we want the photo to be all about you, and what your wearing should not “compete” with your face, overall look and pose.
BRING YOUR A-GAME: You’re going to look your best if you’re well rested, groomed, unhurried and hydrated. Wear your hair and makeup as you normally do, and we will help you make tweaks if necessary.
QUALITY: We don’t take many shortcuts in our business. Your images will be edited on an accurate, color-calibrated computer, and you’ll see how important that is when you make your selections.
FUN: You can expect a fun, comfortable, engaging experience from us. For those who don’t normally enjoy getting their photo taken, fear not… If you read our reviews, you’ll quickly learn that we have a knack for making you feel at ease and drawing out your spirit.
