Headshot Photographer Rafael LHello! I’m Rafael, photographer and operator of the Headshots by The Light Committee studio. I very much enjoy collaborating with people to make great headshots and lifestyle shots. I understand a good quality professional headshot or photo is an important marketing tool – whether for a casting, a career move, or for dating. Yes, they matter. By being here, you probably understand this too. It is one way to set yourself up for success.

An actor relies on them to get cast. A business owner uses them to market their services. A model needs them to get projects. A businessperson knows they make you appear more professional on LinkedIn. More and more they are proving the difference on dating profiles too. They totally up your social media game. And on, and on. So, please take a look around the website. You can find various example photos, details on the studio and location, rates, book online, and more. Of course, if you have any questions where answers are not found here – or if you just want to discuss your shoot first – please contact me in any way that best suits you.

Thanks for visiting!
