About the studio!
Once you come into the studio, I’ll greet you and we’ll chat about what you hope to get out of the session. We’ll also go over the clothing items you brought or are wearing – ideally for business headshots we just need shirts and blouses, unless you also want to do some portraits.
For tops, stick to solid colors, they work best, and stick to colors you know work well with your complexion. Some colors and accessories convey different messages, blazers, jackets, ties, & jewelry, can all be a part of the headshot, or not. It’s up to you and your style.
Once we go over your wardrobe and what looks we will be creating, we’ll take some quick test shots to make sure everything from the lighting, backgrounds to any makeup you are wearing or changed, looks good, and everything looks the way you want it to look. I will coach you through the session, from expressions, looking and feeling natural, to posing. I got you covered. No two people are the same, everyone is unique, and each session is bespoke and tailored to you!
Once the session is over, I will email you a proof gallery, typically the same day, where you can make your picks for the finalizing of the images you want to keep. It’s an easy, fast, and convenient way of making sure you select the best headshots, and it gives you a chance to select more images on a later date should you need additional images. Once you have the images selected, I will touchup the images as needed.
Daniel is the real deal!! Wow I’m amazed of how my son’s pictures turned out, being that my son is very shy when it comes to photos, Daniel was able to make him look, and feel very comfortable, the pictures were for business cards, Daniel made them look very professional and also like modeling pictures! We will be coming back to him for sure!
Bravo! I met with Daniel after doing an online comparison of photographers local in the area because I just loved his portfolio. I signed up for the full makeup and hair package for my professional photos as I haven’t done them in years, and Daniel and his team over delivered. I love the results and will use them for years to come! I’m sure I’ll engage him for family photos as a next step.
Such an incredible experience! I needed some updated headshots and and more for work. Daniel is extremely talented, a joy to work with, and an overall incredible human. I would leave more stars if I could!
Daniel is very professional and you’ll have confidence he’ll give you great photos. I needed new business headshots, and he has other services and packages as well. I would definitely recommend. Support local Durham business owners.
This was my first time using a professional photographer…Daniel made me feel incredibly relaxed and the results were phenomenal…I can’t sat enough great things about Daniel and the entire process…he took some rather ugly raw clay and turned it into a fantastic finished product that was delivered from start to finish in two days!!! The price point was also very affordable…so if you have any doubts whatsoever, please use him for an unbelievable experience!
Such a talented photographer. Daniel and his team were a pleasure to work with. He is extremely talented and certainly has an eye for what will look best on camera. Highly recommend!
The photos are amazing!!! Daniel was very professional and prompt when I inquired about his services while looking for a photographer for a client. From scheduling the shoot, sending the proofs, and delivering the edits, all in one week, I would highly recommend Daniel for your actor headshots!!!
Daniel is absolutely amazing! A pleasure to work with. I am extremely pleased with my photos for my company magazine and my headshots. I highly recommend him for a professional and exceptional experience having photos made.
My experience with Daniel (as well as with Amity, for makeup and hair) couldn’t have been better. The studio atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, communication before, during, and after the session was excellent, and my headshots came out better than I might’ve hoped. I never enjoy having photos done, but Daniel made the session not only tolerable but an actual pleasure. Highly recommended!
I cannot stress enough how happy and satisfied I am with Daniel and his work. I was so nervous about getting my headshots right, but he managed to make me feel comfortable and the results were way beyond my expectations. Everything was easy and pleasant from the beginning, when I booked the session through the website, until the very end, when he delivered the pictures a few days later. Amity, the stylist he recommended for my hair and make up, was also amazing. She did an awesome job and I will never forget the great afternoon we spent together at the studio having this work done. They made me feel like a super model and were extremely kind, friendly and professional. I’m forever grateful to both of them and looking forward to meeting them again soon.
Daniel is the best!!! Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations. I am often nervous in front of a camera, but from the jump Daniel was so kind and patient and created an environment in which I was able to relax and get some shots which truly blew me away. If you’re looking for professional, affordable headshots in the triangle, your search ends here!
Amazing experience! Daniel has a great eye for detail and was super nice and professional.
Daniel was amazing! Did a great ecommerce shot for me for far less than other people I reached out to. Super responsive thru text and friendly to work with. I highly recommend using him!
Daniel is a very professional photographer. I highly recommend him if you want excellent service and high quality photography. His touch-up is superb.
This was my first time taking any kind of professional photo and Daniel was so patient with me! He gave really good instruction and made me feel so much more comfortable behind the camera. Definitely will go back for some glam shots.
He did an amazing job, and was very accomodating with the appointment.
Daniel is an excellent photographer and an excellent person all around! He knew exactly what we needed and was very accommodating and friendly. My sons headshots came out AMAZING!!!! I would recommend him for all of your photography needs!!
Daniel is THE BEST – I needed professional headshots taken in a very short time frame and he delivered. The session was both fun and comfortable, even for someone like myself who usually hates having their picture taken. I heard about Daniel through several friends and after seeing their photos knew that I needed him to take mine as well. I am thrilled with how they turned out – he comes with my highest of recommendations and if I ever need more headshots or photos I know where I am going.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Daniel is incredible. He is completely professional, so talented and helped me feel at ease from the moment I walked into his studio. His online booking process is so easy and I received beautiful proofs the same day as my headshot shoot. Daniel’s photos gave me a lot of confidence going into my job search. He is efficient and talented while also being incredibly kind. You won’t regret hiring him for your next headshot or portrait!
There are so many “extras” when you choose Daniel for a branding session: prep & planning, creative input, honest feedback, a 5-star makeover, and a relaxed, unhurried session to bring out your best. If you want a creative partner to bring out your unique personality, I highly recommend contacting Daniel and his team.
Very professional, friendly, fast turnaround, great value. Would highly recommend.
Daniel was AMAZING! I needed a very specific style of “modern” headshots and he delivered EXACTLY what I was looking for. I love how Daniel listened to my wishes while still bringing his creativity and professional expertise to the table. It felt like we were two artists collaborating to come up with the best possible result!! He made the experience so comfortable and fun. Daniel went above and beyond and took his time during our shoot to make it perfect. I also received my photos SO fast! 10/10 recommend! Talented artist and wonderful person.
This is the second time I’ve asked Daniel to do my photos and he has consistently delivered. Cannot recommend him enough. He makes you feel at ease and makes great suggestions for your shoots. He’s a photographer, art director, fashion consultant, all rolled into one!
A very professional and pleasant experience for people like me who are not comfortable in front of the camera. Daniel explained the whole process very well, and was very responsive. Great photos in a very short time.
Absolutely loved my maternity shoot with Daniel. Hes a terrific photographer with wonderful quality work. Worry every penny!
Fantastic experience and wonderfully executed session. Daniel is talented, committed to the final product, and dedicated to his craft – a true artist. Thanks so much for the great results!
I’m very pleased with the photos Daniel took. I needed a headshot for my upcoming book, and Daniel did a wonderful job. He is professional and pleasant, and was happy to answer my questions before and during the session. An excellent photographer.
This was a great experience, and I’m very happy with the photos for my online portfolio!
I had the amazing opportunity to work with Daniel for my 37th birthday photoshoot. He was able to execute my vision perfectly! I had no experience in front of a camera but Daniel and his team made me feel so comfortable.
Daniel made me feel at ease. He is very skilled in bringing out your best image and his product is exceptional!
Full disclosure, I do not have much experience with professional photography, but even I could tell Daniel is a phenomenal one. He was professional, friendly, and helpful throughout the process. I thoroughly recommend him.
Daniel’s photography is unmatched. His ability to tell stories through this medium is remarkable, and he has moved countless hearts and minds towards a better tomorrow. Whether joy or sorrow, Daniel captures what it’s like to experience this planet. If you’re looking to share something with the world through a visual experience, look no further.
I went to Daniel to get professional headshots for my company’s website and I could not be happier with the experience and results. Great experience from beginning to end!
I am working toward my masters degree at UNC Chapel Hill and needed headshots for LinkedIn, official positions and personal work portfolios. Daniel not only gave me the PERFECT headshots, but made the experience so fun. He works with you to pick out clothes (bring options!) and pair them with backgrounds. He even asks questions about what types of companies and positions you are applying to and will pivot to meet their expectations. I know that the companies I am interviewing with are very traditional so we stuck with that route, but if I had told Daniel I wanted something a little more creative for a marketing firm I know he would have balanced work with creativity. Finally, the smile! Oh my goodness, Daniel captured my smile and the way my friends and family know me so well. Everyone was amazing that my pictures not only looked processional, but also embodied my laugh and excitement like no one has ever done before. I cannot recommend Daniel more! My friends who did headshots through the school’s program have asked for his information to book so they can get better pictures in terms of capturing their personality in a 2-dimensional headshot and higher quality resolutions. 100% book with Daniel Turbert!!! I almost forgot… The most amazing part was he makes you feel so comfortable and the whole process becomes super fun! Plus the best little surprise was getting a student discount at the end!
Our commercial studio is just a short drive from Chapel Hill, located in downtown Durham with private parking.
