Hi, I'm Nils and I'm a Toronto based headshot photographer. I specialize in professional headshots for large organizations helping your brand stand out from the crowds and unifying your visual identity.
I have shot with grammy-winning celebrities, top models that grace the largest billboards in the world, influencers, and many more. But corporate headshots can be a pretty scary experience so my team and me will always make you feel super comfortable on set to do what we came to do: make you look your best. I am one of the rare Germans with a sense of humor and and you'll have a hard time not smiling when working together.

Don't know what to do with all those sliders in your smartphones editing app?

Depending on the app you're using, the names vary slightly, but most of them start out with the Exposure settings. changing the values increases or decreases the overall brightness of the entire picture.

Contrast is often the second thing that you can adjust on your shots. What it does is increase (or decrease) the overall separation of highlights and shadows in your photo. High-contrast photos often look dramatic. Low-contrast images tend to look flat and often feel like a matte photo print.

Next, you often find Shadows and Highlights. Shadows are the dark parts of your images, highlights the brighter parts. Lift the shadows to bring back detail but don't overdo it because you'll get an "HDR-look". Darken the highlights to bring back detail, for example in a blown out sky!

Some more advanced tools allow you to for example replace the sky and make other cool modifications. Note that in the example here, this is part of a paid addon and may not be available for free to all users.

“Hands down the best photography team I've ever worked with. Nils knew how to handle our most senior staff and made them feel at ease. We got new headshots of over 40 people and everyone loved theirs."
"The SpeedyHeadshots team was great to help us streamline our corporate identity and create a cohesive set of headshots for our sales and client-facing teams! We asked for some specific details that the SpeedyHeadshots team delivered promptly."
“We used Nils and his team for our startup's first professional headshots and couldn't have been happier. We reached out Tuesday, shot Thursday morning, and had our retouched images Thursday afternoon in time for our investor presentation. Pricing was great too."

We specialize in headshots for large organizations, personal corporate headshots, Linkedin headshots, actor headshots, model headshots, and portrait photography.
We always recommend wearing clothes you'd normally wear when you work. For some that might be a dress or a suit, for others your favorite scrubs, for yet others a fancy outfit you'd wear on set. You will also look your best when you wear something you're used to and it will show in your headshots.
Our personal headshot session and Linkedin headshot session only takes about 15-20 minutes normally. That gives us enough time to get you comfortable and set up for one look. If you go for an executive or actor headshot session, timing varies from an hour to even half a day if you want shots in your office or in front of some properties if you're a realtor.
For anything we shoot in the studio or at your office, we will always tether (connect camera) to a laptop or computer screen. This allows you even during the session to see what the final images look like. If we shoot outside or have a lot of images to go through, we typically send you a Google Drive link from which you can make your final selections.
Yes we do. We have an inhouse retouching team that will remove minor blemishes and make adjustments to give your headshots that little "je ne sais quoi". If you want to do reshaping or have more elaborate retouching done, we also offer that as a service.
You always have at least 1 professionally retouched image included in your headshot package, and can select to have additional ones included in the final delivery. We always give you all digital images without retouching after the session.
COVID-19 safety protocol
All of our photographers have received their Covid-19 vaccines and booster shots where applicable.
We follow all local on provincial government protocols to keep you, our client, safe during the shoot. That means we wash our hands regularly, we wear face covers throughout the shoot, we sanitize our hands in between appointments, and we keep a safe distance from you.
While we strongly recommend getting your vaccines, we do not require you to show proof of vaccination (subject to change based on governmental regulation) and do not question your personal choices. During your headshot session, you will most likely not want to wear a mask unless you work in the medical field.
We always sanitize high-traffic areas between each shoot in our studio and try our best to keep the entire space clean and disinfected. We usually have hand sanitizer and spare face masks available if you should require them or have a longer wait time.
