Workshop Recap: Tara Flannery's Photographing and Editing the Corporate Headshot

28 Sep 2020 7:39 PM | Theresa Campbell, CPP (Administrator)

Tara Flannery’s full-day workshop, Photographing and Editing the Corporate Headshot, was packed with information AND action.

In the morning session, Tara provided participants with the full rundown from how to market to headshot clients, to coaching them on what to wear, to the most efficient equipment for in-studio or on location headshots. Tara led a very interactive class where attendees learned abundant tips and tricks about Lightroom, preparing images for client use, pricing, websites, and even equipment. We discussed the benefits of using hair and make-up artists and/or providing suggestions to clients who might wish to seek them out on their own before the shoot.

In the afternoon, Tara presented three separate photographic approaches: in-studio flash, natural window light, and outdoors with flash. We had four lovely models of all ages and each attendee was free to capture images from each of the setups. From the photos we all captured, you would never know that rain from a tropical storm was coming down right behind the models.


To wrap up the action-packed day, Tara provided a hands-on demonstration of how she retouches her images for final delivery to the client. Lastly, she shared suggestions for proofing on site and pricing. I’m certain that everyone who attended would agree it was a most productive workshop. You won’t want to miss the chance to learn from Tara when she presents this workshop in the future.

Special thanks to Thersa Couch for the use of her lovely new studio space and covered breezeway that made outdoors photography possible on a rainy afternoon.
