Business Portraits and Headshot Photography for Creative Professionals
JUST BE YOU
and I can take care of the rest.
GENUINE. ENGAGED. TRUSTWORTHY.
I help you be YOU in front of a camera
and really, really, ridiculously good looking.
A GREAT PHOTO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING PHOTOGENIC...
...AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH COACHING.
Get your headshot on...
STEP IN FRONT OF THE LENS
You're going to get a phone call, you're going to get a prep guide. All you have to do is show up and be yourself. Relax - I've got you.
SELECT YOUR FAVOURITES
At the end of the session, you'll select and purchase your favourites over a coffee. You're going to love it!
Use your professional image to cut through the noise of social media.
When you’re in small business and you’re up against the rest of the bloody world, you need to be taken seriously or you’ll be left behind. Selfies just don’t cut it.
Having a professional portrait is your first step in getting your personal brand in order. The first step towards letting people know you’re a professional, you’re serious and you will help them get the solution that they need.
At IPS, you just need to be you and I’ll do the rest so that you can spend your time focusing on what matters most to you and your brand – delivering the best service for your customers – because your first impression will already be cutting through the noise of today’s busy world.
JUST BE YOU
Let’s put you back in the picture.
Professional Portrait & Headshot photographer, Amanda Waschevski, is a passionate (and slightly eccentric) business owner who specialises in studio photography for Creative Small Business Owers, Actors and Corporate Executives.
"You’ve got a vision. You need to know that your vision is going to be met. It's ok. I've got you. I am an expert at helping people relax in front of my camera."
FREQUENTLY HEARD STATEMENTS & QUESTIONS
Don’t see your question here? Call me on +617 3466 3481
Nope. I don’t use photoshop. Here’s the thing though – I know how to light beautifully and coach effectively. I can pose you (while not looking “posie”) to diminish that thing you really don’t like. You know, we’ve all got “that thing”, but it’s usually only a thing for us.
I can’t fix your internal dialogue, but I can teach you how to look like yourself and I can show you how to look at a photograph of yourself in a way that you may not have considered before.
And it’s ok – Mona has a strong game (she’s my camera) and I’m fully insured.
Maybe. Maybe not.
Creative work is one of a kind and at the end of the day “expensive” is subjective.
Compared to many of my peers I am “very affordable”. Compared to other colleagues I am “Astronomical”!
You pay for what You value.
People that come to see me generally value:
- honesty & transparency
- the opportunity to be themselves
- quality imagery
- the ability to explore how their mindset impacts their perception of the portrait
- someone who will treat them as an individual and with respect
And if they don’t value these things, that’s completely fine – there are other photographers out there who can cater to whatever their values are. There is someone for everyone.
I might be “expensive”, but I am worth it. More importantly,
So are You.
Of course! An in person consult is available to every client and I offer a full “How to Prepare Guide” that includes links to inspiration boards on pinterest to help you plan and coordinate your wardrobe options for your photo session.
I don’t put a time limit on my sessions because different people take a different amount of time to relax in front of a camera. Most sessions, however, last around two hours.
I photograph all my sessions tethered to a large monitor, allowing you to view your photographs as they are being taken. I collaborate with you every step of the way from posing, expressions and help you design the best looks to guarantee your satisfaction. You will know what you are getting before you leave the studio, and you will love it.
THE GOOD WORD
A Business Headshot isn't just a picture. It defines your brand and positions you in the marketplace. Your Corporate Headshot promotes you when you're not there to do it in person.
Your headshot is the first thing that a talent agent or casting director looks at before meeting you. Make sure yours gives you the best chance of getting an audition.
