Curated list of head shot photographers

A lot of my clients end up needing a new head shot while they’re working with me. Since I tend to have multiple clients in major metro areas around the U.S. and Canada, I decided to start curating a list of head shot photographers who do good work for business head shots–including LinkedIn photos. The intent is not to have every city on here, but I want to at least have some of the top metro areas.

The criteria I came up with for this list:

  • A client, friend, or trusted business contact used the photographer and recommends them; or it’s someone I know
  • AND I’ve seen the photographer’s work and believe it meets the standards I would have for a LinkedIn head shot for a client (that being said, some of these folks may specialize in business head shots more than others)

I will add to this list regularly to expand it. For the time being, please let me know if any of these existing entries need updating!


This is only U.S. and Canada (for now).


The prices charged by photographers on this list may vary quite widely. Give some thought to what budget you’re willing to invest. You might be able to get a fairly good LinkedIn head shot for a rock-bottom price (perhaps through a Groupon or just a low-cost freelancer or studio). However, at the lowest price points, it could be hit or miss. Funds permitting, you might consider making an investment in your image.
