Do you need a professional headshot photographer in Boulder or Denver, Colorado? We can help.


Why You Should Work With Customer Paradigm’s Jeff Finkelstein for your Professional Headshot:

Simply put, I want to make you look good. I want to help capture your emotion, and help you engage with others using a professional photograph. I use professional lighting equipment to make your skin even and smooth, your hair shine, and your eyes sharp and bright. Post-production photoshopping can cover any minor skin blemishes or acne, too.

I love to shoot on seamless white backgrounds (so that your image can be dropped into a marketing brochure or a website). Or on a black background for a dramatic effect. But here in Boulder, Colorado, we have amazing outdoor locations, too, that are literally seconds away from our photography studio.

A professional photograph lets the viewer know that you’re a serious business person, who cares about presenting the best possible image. Whether you need a headshot for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, or you need one for your website or for speaking engagements, we can create a compelling look for you.

Sample Professional Headshot Photography Images:

Professional Headshots on a Black Background:

Professional Headshot Photographer - Boulder, CO

This series of professional headshots was photographed at our studio in Boulder, Colorado. It creates a dramatic look that is perfect for social networking profile photos and more. These images were shot using a 6-light setup and a black background. The trick is to use a shallow depth of field to draw the viewer’s focus to the eyes of the subject.

How to take professional headshot of subject with eyeglasses

If you wear eyeglasses, a professional headshot becomes much more complex. It’s difficult to get a quality headshot without creating reflection on the glasses. In this case, we bounced light at an angle that didn’t reflect right back to the camera, to create a clear, professional headshot of the subject that allowed his eyes to come through.

Real Estate Professional Headshot
In this professional headshot for a local Boulder, Colorado realtor, I used six different lights to try to separate her black top from the black background, so that the image didn’t create a dreaded “floating head.” I did a bit of retouching for the final image.

Professional Headshot - on Black Background

This real estate agent needed a professional headshot for her real estate business. What I like about this image is how her black top melts into the background, while a hair light to the left of the camera creates a highlight in her blond hair.

Outdoor Professional Headshots in Boulder, Colorado

For this outdoor guide, an outdoor shot fit within the image he was trying to convey. It’s currently his Facebook profile photo. We wanted to create an image that had a shallow depth of field, but reinforced his smile, sense of fun, and rugged outdoor looks.

Another Outdoor Professional Headshot:

Professional Headshot - Outdoor Images

This aspiring model wanted to show off a new hairstyle, and wanted to feature her new look in a natural, outdoor setting. We shot in a field less than a mile away from our office in South Boulder, Colorado. With the blades of grass in the foreground slightly out of focus, the viewer is drawn into her eyes and smile.

Here’s another view of the same subject, this time using leading lines to draw the viewer into the image. This is a classic modeling pose that allows the viewer to see the subject’s face, and brings attention to her eyes, smile and figure.

Action Shot:

Outdoor Headshot

This person wanted her professional headshot and photograph to reflect her having fun. I had her jump across a small, narrow stream.. which made her relax. While I helped create compelling (and serious) headshots, this image I think best captured her energy.
