Noor_headshotNoor_headshot I decided last minute on taking business photo headshots. The photographer offered me an availability within two hours. When I arrived, he was quick at adding suggestions on straightening my suit to avoid wrinkles in the image and recommended background colors I highly recommend if you're looking for a great business headshot!

Philip_headshotPhilip_headshot For someone who is awkward with taking photos, The photographer was exactly who I needed to make this process painless and in fact enjoyable! He was great with guiding you with the posing, attentive to listen to your preference, and provided feedbacks on photo selection. Not to mention how fast he is with the turnaround time for edited photo. I paid for a corporate professional headshot for 30 mins and it was worth every penny. Thank you TerrificShot!


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. 


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 Santa Clara. 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 crucial thing is to use your finest facial expression during the session to establish your credibility. Following that, all minor flaws such as blemishes, wrinkles, and so on... can be removed with a few mouse clicks in Photoshop! Remember that the best retouching is when you appear natural in the photo. During the session, we'll talk about any specific editing requests you have.


How long will it take to get my final images?  Right after the session, the same day, you get your photos proofing gallery via email and text in order for you to pick your images. Once we get your selection, it takes only ONE day.  In fact, you can get your final images the SAME DAY.  Of course, You can provide your feedback on the edited photos and we would be happy to edit more if needed. The final images will be delivered via email or download link.
