Our Story began in January 2000
Some people are naturally photogenic. They’re rare. Most of us need persuasion to pose for a photograph, and even then usually wince at the outcome. It was this awareness, from experiences on both sides of the lens, that in January 2000 brought The Melbourne Headshot Company into being.
For years, award-winning photographers Andrew and Robyn Campbell had been watching clients squirm their way through sittings as though in a dentist’s chair; they decided to take a streamlined professional approach to corporate portraiture that for clients would be all-gain and no pain.
Andrew and Robyn wanted clients to enjoy the experience of having their photos taken. In a world of routine, run-of-the-mill pictorial clichés, an arresting or memorable portrait is a competitive edge – not to mention a personal affirmation.
Having your photograph taken shouldn’t be a burden, or a duty, or an irritation. It should be about bringing out your best and showing it off to the world. It should be easy. It should be fun. The Melbourne Headshot Company is about giving you the best possible experience – and the image to go with it.
