Professional Headshots Is What We Do BEST


Open For Business And Fully Vaccinated


Do you want to be taken seriously in your field?


We frequently hear that someone works for a huge firm yet the company will not cover the cost of their headshot. 

We are constantly surprised by looking at the company's team page and discover employees associated with inconsistent, non-existent, or plain bad headshots. 

Imagine pulling up a corporate profile, viewing the drop-down menu of their team, and noticing that EVERYONE looks professional.

on't you believe this adds enormous value to the company's image? 

A headshot, as well as the quality of the photograph, is a reflection of your individual brand.

Headshot is more than just your logo. It is how your clients will recognize you. 

It catches people's attention, has the ability to go viral, establishes credibility, and leaves an impact on them so that when the time comes to buy, they remember your brand.


TerrificShot Headshots PhotographyTM will help you in developing the ideal image for you and your company. You have a business to run, so let us assist you in communicating the core of your brand to your customers.

What Is the Purpose of a Headshot?

In its purpose, a quality professional headshot is unlike any other photo.

If you believe that taking a selfie is sufficient. You are incorrect! Selfies can have serious damages for your job search.

A selfie with poor lighting or posing is the best way to communicate to headhunters that you don't care about yourself and thus don't want to invest in yourself. 

So why the employer should invest in you?

People want to engage with those who take their business seriously, and you are the face of your company.

You are always representing your company whether you utilize your headshot on your company website, social media, or even on your business card.

Consider this scenario: you walk into a restaurant and observe the cook doesn't have a hair net, has bad hygiene, and is dressed like a bum. Would you eat there?

Most people avoid having professional headshots because they believe it will cost them money. TerrificShot Studio Headshots Photography™ provides affordable headshots package pricing.

Invest in yourself because it could be the best investment you've ever made.

key point Corporate headshot Womankey point Corporate headshot Woman Well organized and easy to book, both in studio and at our Palo Alto  office. The photographer was on time, professional, and really easy and fun to work with. The photographer had photo gallery link for us later on the same day, and edited pictures were ready just two days later. Actually, we loved most of the pictures, so ended up buying the whole gallery anyways. Already bragged about the photo session and had a slide show with our friends.

What if I'm NOT a photogenic person ? We heard this comment very often.  We will help you during the session just to be YOURSELF! When you stop thinking about how you look is when you look the most attractive. As a professional studio photography, we can offer numerous suggestions for your headshot session, but the most important is to let your personality shine! we advocate hiring a make-up artist, whether you're a man or a woman. Furthermore, knowing who your target audience is and tailoring your headshot session to them is usually a good idea.



How do I choose a Portrait photographer ? Liking the photographer's work is only 50% as important as liking and TRUSTING the photographer.  There are big chances you are not a professional model and have no clue what to do in front of a lens. It’s the photographers responsibility to guide you towards the shots you need.
Please give us a call and just take the time to have a conversation on the phone. At TerrificShot Studio Photography, we offer FREE consultation. Ask any questions. Get a feel for who we are, and how we work. 


I don't know nothing about posing. Will you direct me?  That is exactly what separates us from the rest of the headshot photographers around us in San Jose. We believe that technical camera/lightning represents 10% of the work.  The other 90% is the photographer’s job to create an atmosphere that you feel safe and to provide guidance on what to do in front of the camera. Having your picture taken is NOT a natural experience. During the session, we will do our best to make you feel relax. When we reach these moments is when we capture your best personality. 

Do you provide retouching? 
The most important is to get your best face expression that emphasizes your credibility during the session. Next, all minor imperfections such as blemish, wrinkles and so on... can be taken care with a few clicks of mouse under photoshop! Keep in mind, the best retouching is when you look natural in the picture. We will discuss specific editing requests concerns with you during the session.


How long will it take to get my final images?  You will receive your photo proofing gallery via email and text the same day as your session, allowing you to choose your favorite shots. It simply takes ONE DAY after we receive your selection. You can even get your final photographs on the SAME DAY. Of course, you are welcome to provide us comments on the modified photographs, and we would gladly edit more if necessary. The finished photos will be emailed or downloaded.
