Personal Branding
Personal branding takes the head shot to a whole new level.

Big brands work hard to communicate their message in print and online through still photos.

You can do the same thing as the big guys by using imagery that shows off your personality to stand out from the crowd.

Studio Location
The studio is located at 50 Terminal St in Charlestown not far from downtown Boston.


My mission is to help you communicate your identity with outstanding portrait photographs, whether it’s a simple headshot or a complete story telling of your personal brand.

You will be guided through every step of the process from big picture strategizing about how to leverage photography to logistical things like location scouting, wardrobe, and shoot direction.

I was formally trained in portraiture at the New England School of Photography (NESOP) and have been a professional photographer for close to ten years. I love it just as much today as the day I started.

I’d love to hear about your project and how I might be able to help.

Erik just recently did headshot photos for our faculty here at Tufts University. He was very accomodating to the needs of the department, and the photos came out great!! The turnaround time was excellent, as well. We will definitely use his company again!!

Erik is very creative and came up with great ideas to make the picture look different. He was easy to work with and sent us final images very fast. It was a fun experience and I would highly recommend working with Erik!

What an amazing experience I had with Erik! While initially I was a bit nervous about the shoot Erik put me at ease within minutes. He took the time to speak with me prior to learn what I wanted to capture, and the day of the shoot I was completely comfortable and confident.
