Looking for headshots in the Greater Toronto Area? We’ve got a special offer for amazing women in the community! To get your free headshot you just need to meet up at a local Milton coffee shop. It can be Starbucks, Arbour Cafe, Coffee Culture, McDonald’s, Tim Hortons, or wherever you like to get your caffeine kick!
All your questions will be answered below:
What are headshots and what can I use them for?
Headshots are just as described – a clear photo of your face. They’re useful for a number of areas like:
- casual social media profile photos (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter)
- professional Linkedin profile photo
- casual messenger app profile photos (e.g. WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook)
- professional acting headshot
- professional model headshot
- just to admire how great you can really look in a professionally taken photograph
Why are we meeting at a coffee shop?
Because coffee is good and it gives us a chance to chat. It’s also a nice public place so we can all feel more comfortable. But, really…coffee (or tea)…come on.
Where will the free headshots be taken?
We’ll take the headshot it inside the coffee shop. They usually have neutral coloured walls which are great for headshots too. If not, they’ve got walls outside which always work too. I know the owners of Arbour Cafe are really cool and would be happy if we met and took photos there.
What do you get?
You will receive one of our edited, black and white headshots free of charge. It will include a watermark of our website URL in the bottom right (like the image in this post), but won’t include any border.
We also get to drink coffee (or tea, beer, etc.) and have a casual chat!
I’m always interested in hearing about the lives of real women in our community.
Why are we doing this?
We are a small business that helps artistic women and we want to lay a great foundation. We always want to be as connected in our community as possible and we primarily get hired based on word of mouth. Doing this gives us a chance to talk to real women and figure out how to serve them best.
Instead of investing our money in advertising like on Facebook or Google ads we’d rather give that value to women who deserve it; in the form of a free headshot. Don’t you think that’s a better idea than giving money to the big guys?
We get to show off how amazing the experience can be in front of our camera and working with us if you wanted to have your own portrait photography experience (or refer us to a friend). Plus, your headshot serves as a testament to our quality and artistry when other women see it.
What do you have to do to get a free headshot from us?
First, you have to book a coffee chat session in Milton with us.
While we appreciate all the help we can get from your positive word of mouth and Google reviews, we don’t have any formal contract that forces you to do these things. We believe in the honour system and that’s the way we want to keep it – honest and based on faith in one another.
Please let other women know how the experience went in person and mention your experience on our Google page.
If you have any questions just send us a message directly through our contact form.
