Friendly & Professional: Thoughtful coaching combined with some light humor help make this quick and painless, and pro gear ensures consistent studio-quality results. I promise.
Covid-safe: 10-minute touchless sessions support CDC Guidelines. Please arrive wearing your favorite mask for a souvenir photo of these crazy times, and I'll wear mine throughout your session. I'll also have sanitizing gel and disinfecting wipes available.
Deliverables: turnkey package includes shooting (15+ shots), processing (for best color and brightness) and buyout usage rights (printable, high-res files). Gold Standard packages also include retouching of your favorite shot (reg. $20/image).
Rate & Payment: Our Gold Standard session rate is $50. If you have a discount code, please enter that at sign-up. Anyone struggling financially is invited to enter the discount code "NYR" and you can name your rate (really - a donation of any amount is completely fine and deeply appreciated). We accept cash or check onsite, or we can invoice your company, or you can use this secure link to pay online by purchasing an e-gift card.

Custom Retouching whitens your eyes and teeth, softens wrinkles and blemishes, erases glasses glare and fly-away hair, and subtly re-sculpts your the face. ($20 per image)
Custom Portrait includes an on-location shoot with custom lighting, wardrobe changes and props, custom crops, previews and digital retouching of selected files. ($150 & up)
Private Group PhotoDay at your location eliminates travel time and provides background options using your office decor or other colored fabric - including GreenScreen. ($250 & up)
Couples who reserve two consecutive sessions receive a FREE couples pose.
Pass It On
The backstory: Like the rest of the hospitality industry, my event photos business crashed last March. The Tempe Chamber offered to help with a free banner ad, so I began offering NameYourRate Headshots to pass along that favor to job-seekers and anyone who's struggling financially. Thanks to our sponsors and session donations, we're able to continue to offer PhotoDays throughout the metro Phoenix area.
A huge THANK YOU to our sponsors who promote our Headshot PhotoDays:
The Ahwatukee Chamber
The Tempe Chamber
And to our gracious host properties and venues who make these Headshot PhotoDays possible:
DoubleTree Hilton Tempe
DoubleTree Hilton Gilbert
MAC6 co-working space Tempe
DoubleTree Hilton Phoenix North
Desert Willow Conference Center
Delta Hotel by Marriot - Mesa
SoHo63 Event Venue Chandler
The Mesa Convention Center
The Scottsdale Plaza Resort

We're always looking for new partners to help bring discount-rate headshots to their members.
