Today, photography is a hobby for many people. According to many analysts, the number of photographs taken since 2010 has tripled and it has been estimated that over 1.2 Trillion pictures were taken in 2017! But why a Professional Photographer if so many images can be taken so quickly and easily? The answer is simple: Lighting, posing, along with the Technical skills required to operate the camera and lighting equipment are what separates the professional from the hobbyist.
As Tom tells it, “when I was first starting out, I had 1 light and was more concerned with the settings on my camera and whether the light was in the proper position and set for the correct output level than I was in creating a rapport with the person I was photographing. Years of training, practice and experience have now made it possible for me to focus totally on you as the technical aspect of photography has become second nature.” It’s this rapport that allows you to feel comfortable and combined with Tom’s ability to see backgrounds, patterns, light and shadows the images created are second to none!
Today, whether it’s shooting in-studio or on location, during magic hour or in the middle of the day, cloudy skies or full sun, Tom has the equipment and the skills to provide you with an experience that captures your personality, is fun and is “all about you”!!

Headshots, first and foremost should look like you. Your eyes and expression should reflect your personality and tell a story. The use of proper lighting and posing in conjunction with background elements and composition is what separates Tom Welsh Photography from others. If you are needing new Headshots for and of the following, contact us today!
In Theater, film, and television, actors, models, singers and other entertainers are often required to include a head shot, along with their résumé, when applying for a job.
The main purpose of an actor's head shot is identification. Therefore, the most important feature of an actor's head shot is that it represents the subject. Theatrical head shots are usually very "neutral" looking shots of the actor clearly showing their facial features.
Modeling head shots or comp cards, sometimes also called tear sheets, are a compilation of images for casting in one sheet with a résumé of work, name and relevant statistics.
Modeling head shots are usually used for:
Comp cards or tear sheets
TV advertisements for skin products
Magazine advertisements for creams and other skin or hair products
Online industry profiles
Corporate and business head shots
Corporate head shots are portraits often produced digitally and used for engaging in social media, the 'about us' page and industry specialty sites. A headshot or head shot is often used for branding and to showcase the business leader's life, style and personality while corporations will use the headshot to merge branding between the people working for them and its agency.
Corporate head shots serve a variety of purposes
LinkedIn personal profiles as well as publisher profiles
About us page
Corporate catalogs, brochures and advertising collateral
Company publications and websites, internal and external
Press releases and other announcements
Articles and newspapers
Creating a great portrait requires collaboration between the Photographer and the person being photographed that provides an identity to the person’s mood, personality, strengths and/or weaknesses and identity. It should tell a story! The image should catch your attention and not let go until your eyes have thoroughly wondered up/down, over and across the image allowing you to sense and feel its story. This is accomplished through the photographers understanding of Light (its quality and direction), as well as composition, posing, expression and complimentary colors.
At Tom Welsh Photography creating great Portraits is our passion. Whether it is in-studio or outdoors on location, we have the skills and equipment to capture and create an image that captures the essence of you!
