Music Photography

Attractive images that make your work look valuable and interesting

Publicity photography for musicians is an instant visual representation of your music and performance. A powerful image can push your brand image higher and capture more fans.

One challenge of music photo is the vast range of creative styles that can be used. You probably want to do some research. If you retain BEAUPIX, the photographer will be happy to help you with the practical advice, so that your creative ambition, budget, and feasibility are in check.

Pricing

If you are an individual musician looking for a publicity headshot, and other creative type or media oriented headshot, the photography fee is usually 600–2000 range. The cost typically increases with the complexity of the work, so it is helpful if you send adequate information (style, sample images, inspiration board, etc.) when inquiring. Booking a shoot requires advance payment.

Testimonials

We received so many reviews from former clients; please visit a separate testimonials page for full list. Here’s one randomly chosen testimonial:

My experience with Ryuji and Beaupix Studio was A+! When I was searching for photographers to get my head shots done, I didn't get a good feeling from the other photographers who either A) Didn't even answer my email/call, or B) Didn't sound professional. Ryuji answered the phone every time I called, AND made me feel confident in his skills. My instincts never lie, and I'm GLAD I made the right decision to go to Ryuji. I will definitely be using his services again! He is diligent, talented - and a nice, easy person to work with.

He captures exactly what you like, and what he feels appropriate for what you're trying to do. No two headshots and people are the same. It's custom, and he makes sure to get it done right for you. He won't just shoot but also help people choose the right photo to be most marketable. That component, most other headshot photographers do not offer. I am VERY pleased with my headshots from Beaupix, and HIGHLY recommend them to any other professional looking for their picture to look...PROFESSIONAL!

Add-on options

Magazine-quality retouching is very common for a publicity photo, as it can significantly improve your impression. It removes temporary skin blemishes, lightening under eye circles and wrinkles. The price starts at 60/image. We usually perform retouching while you watch, a very detailed work that you won’t get bored watching. Since BEAUPIX does a lot of demanding fashion and beauty photography with in-house retouching, we have the level of skills that very few headshot photographers have. If you are particularly conscious about your facial features, a heavier retouching, such as facial contour correction (e.g., slimming face or fixing double chin) is also available.

For female professionals, good natural look makeup is essential. If you are comfortable doing makeup yourself, it is usually sufficient, but otherwise, the studio can arrange an experienced makeup artist for your session at an additional cost, starting at 150.

It is possible to take your headshot in the studio, and swap the backdrop with another picture, for example, a scenic image. There are pros and cons of this approach, so if you think this is your route, please make sure to discuss this option with the photographer in advance.
