Professional Hair & Makeup
For best results, I prefer you use my professional hair and makeup artists, though you have the option to do it yourself if you prefer. We start natural and add makeup as we go, if needed. The makeup artist is there throughout the session. For guys, you can come in with some facial hair and shave half way through if you want, so bring your razor, etc.
Once you select your final headshots from the online gallery, they will be automatically sent over to me. After retouching is finished and approved by you, the images are processed at high resolution, prepped for printing, and digitally delivered via Dropbox straight to your email so you can access them anytime. See retouching samples here.
Play it safe with solid, dark colors. Or be creative with bright colors. The more you bring to your shoot the better it will be. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing it, don't bring it. If you find yourself questioning whether or not something will work, just bring it! I'll finalize the selections specifically to your needs.
"Awesome photos for my headshot! Thanks for giving me confidence and making me feel comfortable during the shoot. It was an excellent experience. Please use me as an enthusiastic reference!"
"Tim Coburn is THE TRUTH. From setting the appointment to the time I spent in the studio, my Tim Coburn photography experience was simply incredible! All I can say is thank you for the enlightenment you brought to my understanding of what a REAL photographer is. Your work speaks for itself. My headshots were the perfect complement to my professional curriculum vitae and now, whenever any organization asks for a photograph, I have some really great photos to give them! A photo shoot with Tim Coburn is one of the best investments a person could ever make in themselves. Tim Coburn captures the essence of YOU. It is his spiritual gift."
"If you are looking for a headshot that will reflect who you are at your best, and the uniqueness you bring to your clients and the world, Tim is your man! Not only were the shots Tim took of me the best I’ve ever had taken, but the experience of working with him was really fun. I’m actually looking forward to getting them updated…though not just yet! So if you are wondering if Tim is the photographer for you, wonder no more. There is no one who will do a better job for you than Tim."
"I have gotten so many comments about these headshots and everyone’s wondering who did them…I’ve told so many people about you. You do extremely great work. I love my headshots!! Thank you so much."
"Tim is an exceptionally creative and gifted professional. Transformative and stunning is what he does. I consider myself lucky to have been a subject in his work!"
"It was my first time taking professional photos, and Tim really made me feel at ease and ready for the camera. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for my first headshots. It was really a great experience and I’ve used those headshots ever since. They’ve gotten me a number of jobs and I couldn’t be more thankful."
"Thanks to your amazing work on and off camera, you were able to help me open doors with these headshots. I have always dreamed of being a spokesperson for a company and you allowed me to have that dream come true. I submitted my story to Bally Total Fitness, and they were so impressed by the photos and my story that they featured me on their Website where I am still today. I have received phone calls for castings numerous times and have gotten audition opportunities that I could only dream of before the photos. Thank you Tim for everything!!"
Tim Coburn was fun to work with and took a number of excellent shots. Throughout the Baltimore and DC area, showing someone my headshots usually results in a compliment and a “Where did you get those?” They were worth it!"
"Wow! For someone who has had a complex their whole life about having her picture taken, you have no idea how much this really, really helps. This is bigger for me than just a bunch of photos. Somehow you were able to capture some very relaxed shots of me and I look happy!"
"Tim’s portrait work is nothing short of magic, pure magic. I was completely stressed over having my ‘author picture’ taken, but Tim gave me shots that I’m proud to have on the book jacket. If you’re afraid you’ll never look good in a photograph, go to Tim and you will be amazed."
Working with Tim for my professional headshot was a pleasure. Tim and his team provided a relaxed but professional atmosphere, which immediately put me at ease. He followed up promptly and within a few days of my shoot, I had a selection of high-quality headshots, which I’ve been able to use for press releases, Web and print collateral, and speaking appearances. The quality of his work has helped me communicate the professionalism and integrity of my organization.”
