Does this sound like you?

You are looking for a headshot that embodies your personality. Something that modernizes your LinkedIn profile. A headshot that matches the role you have or sets you up for the one you desire. You want to connect with others on a different level.

You have come to the right place.

Great headshots can take you places.

Building beneficial, long-lasting personal and business relationships start with a connection. First impressions often determine what direction those connections go.

Focusing on the little details.

As your headshot specialist, you can leave the small stuff to me. By combining the features and angles you were born with along with some authentic expressions, your confident eyes and genuine smiles will take you many miles. It’s pure poetry.

Your hair part matters.

Whether your hair is short, long, or gone, we are going to use it to our advantage to search out your best angles.

Wide-eyed was never a good look.

Make sure your eyes are singing all the right notes. People often determine if you are friend or foe in a first impression just by looking at your eyes.

Cheesy grins add zero energy.

Leave the elementary school smiles in elementary school. Layering a confident look from your eyes and adding in a friendly and approachable smile that is unique to you equals a fantastic headshot.

Techniques that highlight you.

Your expression is a large piece of the headshot puzzle, but getting you on all the right angles while using simple techniques to accentuate your features will ensure you are headshot-ready. It’s a master class on looking amazing.

Let my awesome clients do the talking.


“Ian was very easy to work with. He arrived at our office early, set up his studio in our conference room, and took amazing headshots of myself and my other employees. As our company grew in size, he accommodated us by allowing us to send new hires to his studio.  As we continue to expand, Ian is taking headshots of our new employees.” | More


“In my photo, I look professional, assertive and approachable. I now have a great photo to use at work, on my resume, and in my professional social networks. I am so glad that I now have this professional image and would highly recommend Ian Johns to anyone else looking for a professional headshot.” | More

My name is Ian (obviously).

“If you would rather have teeth pulled than get a headshot, I am here to ease your fears. I have perfected a system that will make your headshots stop people in their tracks. From the moment we connect until you’re delivered the goods, my refined headshot experience will leave you walking with an extra bounce in your step. Wear comfortable shoes.”

When is the last time you loved a headshot?

Most people never have. Why? Maybe it was a bad hair day or they were tired. Their expression was blank. They only had three minutes to get the shot. The clothing choices were questionable. The list goes on. What if I told you all of these issues could be resolved in front of my camera?

It’s totally true.

Let’s solve problems for free.

I bet that got your attention. I am confident that my downloadable tips sheet will resolve many of those issues. The devil is in the details and you have found a headshot photographer who knows how to prepare for them.

I can help take care of the rest.

There is a saying in the headshot business, “Let me be your mirror.” What you think looks great in front of the camera usually isn’t a good look at all. Allow me to get you dialed in with your best angles, expressions and overall vibe.

Five-star customer rating on Google.

Ian is way beyond photographer, which is part of the magic behind his incredible photos.

Ian has a passion for what he does and it shows in every interaction during a shoot.

I never thought the experience of having a headshot could be both educational and fun.

You keep talking about this experience.

While I love serving as your headshot photographer and providing tons of advice, sessions with me are a two-way street. Throughout our time together – before, during, and after your session – you will have plenty of say in the direction we go. This is your headshot we’re talking about here.

1 | Proper preparation.

It’s the old grade school saying, “Proper preparation prevents poor performance.” Once you’re booked, you will receive an e-mail with all the info you need to rock your headshot session. Knowing and understanding what to expect will already put you ahead of the curve.

2 | Take pictures.

Sounds simple, right? Upon your arrival, we will shake hands and run through your clothing choices. From there, I will begin building you up towards incredible headshots. A few techniques put into practice will show you just how easy this whole headshot thing can be.

3 | Image reviews.

This is where our collaboration sings. As your session progresses we will briefly pause to review your images on a computer. This is the perfect time for you to see the techniques in action as you discover you really are photogenic in front of a camera.

4 | You’ve got mail.

Whether you select your images immediately after your session or through an online proofing gallery, your headshots will be professionally retouched and delivered to you by e-mail. The editing process will make sure your headshots are ready for the world to see.
