Seeking a powerful and authentic digital presence? You’re in the right place! I’m Jason Guy, a headshot photographer based in Sonoma, California, catering to the Northern Bay Area. In our increasingly interconnected world, cultivating a strong online presence has become essential. Your profile picture often serves as the first impression you make online.
As a headshot photographer, I’m here to help you capture a portrait that genuinely represents your best qualities, blending confidence with approachability. Together, I’d like to help you create a striking avatar photo that elevates your personal brand and leaves a lasting impact
Book Your Headshot
After calculating the cost of your headshots, you can contact me using the form below so we can discuss details.
How Much Does a Professional Headshot With Jason Cost?
Headshot rates are calculated based on:
- The number of people being photographed.
- How many will need hair and makeup services.
- Style preference | studio style / environmental.
- Where we are shooting.
You can use the calculator above to estimate the cost of your headshot session or get a group quote. All sessions are photographed on location (I come to you) and include 1 fully edited, full res file per person.
My rates are discounted based on the number of people being photographed and how many images each person will need. Locations further than 1 hr from Sonoma, California will incur additional travel expenses TBD.
Choose Your Headshot Style
I offer two different style options for your headshot: “environmental” and “studio.” Environmental headshots are created with available lighting and backgrounds at your location. Studio style headshots are created by crafting a studio at your location. To understand the differences between these two styles and their benefits, you can check out this post about environmental vs studio looks here.
Personal Branding Portrait Sessions
Personal branding sessions are for individuals who are their brand. These sessions include a headshot, and also go a step further to capture additional portraits which help foster a deeper connection with your customers.
Most importantly, these sessions share more about who you are, and as a result, allow you to better communicate with your followers. These images also help create more compelling about pages, social feeds and print marketing for your brand. Personal branding sessions are ideal for solopreneurs, actors, real estate agents, authors and even online dating profiles.
Branding sessions start at $1770 for 6 images and are discounted further based on the number of images you choose to purchase. You can find out more about how much a portrait session will cost by checking out my portrait price menu here.

Business Headshot Photographer
Your business portrait is the first thing everyone see’s when they engage with you online. As a headshot photographer, I will help you create the best first impression for everyone that comes into contact with your brand.
Corporate headshot sessions are designed for businesses that need a cohesive, professional look for all of their employees. Cohesiveness is most important anywhere that introduces your team collectively like your website’s about page.
It’s also crucial for your employees to have professional images that stand out amongst others competing for your clients attention.
I create eye catching studio style and or environmental headshots for your team at your location. You can use the headshot calculator above to determine the cost to photograph everyone in your company or subsequent new hires.
