Headshot is not just a photograph. It is your first impression, and the result of a creative process to design the public image of your personality and professional role. Our goal is to help you through this creative process, so that your headshot looks confident, comfortable and approachable, and not like an unfriendly stranger.
We provoke your character and capture it. The photographs you see on this website reflect how we work with people.
Shooting headshots at BEAUPIX is easy and painless. We developed a unique and interactive workshop style photo session workflow in the studio, which keeps you engaged and informed. We will also work together to pick out good images out of many captured through the session.
Our job starts with helping you choose the right service option and giving you some info to get you prepared for the session. That is why our service starts with a telephone consultation. Please follow the steps below to find some background information, and contact the photographer. If you are already familiar with the material, please use the inquiry form.

One of the best experiences of my life! Ryuji takes the time to know you and coaches you throughout the whole process. He really knows how to capture the best moment and has a natural talent in picking up your personality which shows in the pictures unlike any other photographer I have ever known. Personally, I am not natural at taking great pictures, but with his expertise, patience and talent, I was able to feel relaxed and he took some amazing pictures! I am very happy with the results and would recommend his studio to anyone looking for a professional picture, corporate headshot or for use in their marketing plan. Looking forward to working with him in the future for other projects for my business. – Jean S., a Boston area business owner on Google Plus
His goal to bring out YOUR personality in his photos, not his own, like many NYC photographers like to do. This guy has real talent.
After the shoot, we selected the best shots together in the studio, which made the process very easy and fast. Most other photographers don’t give this option and you are stuck with hundreds of proof images and frustration. Not with Ryuji. In fact, reviewing images on computer screen while taking small breaks was very helpful.
I didn’t even need my photos retouched by him because he lights everything so well and puts so much effort into detail so that you look the best you can look when he takes your picture. But a very light retouching made my headshot look just perfect.
I’ll always have my headshots taken by Ryuji and I will always recommend him to anyone who asks. —Linnea S., Waltham, MA then and now New York city, on yelp.com
I needed head shots for work (I’m a sole proprietor), and based on the good online reviews, I decided to go to Beaupix. I was prepared to dread the experience, but it was actually very enjoyable.
Most of that is down to Ryuji (the photographer) himself. Ryuji is a smart, engaging guy, and we chatted about all sorts of things while he snapped away, keeping me distracted so I wouldn’t make dumb faces. He was also learning about my personality, and the kind of work that I do, and using that to influence the kind of shots he was taking. We talked a lot about how I would be using the photos (he gave me tons of great advice about marketing and running your own business), and he took that into account as well. He offered many suggestions and described options, but always let me “call the shots.” After the shoot we sat down together and looked at the photos, narrowing it down and picking the best ones.
Ryuji went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and to make sure I understood what I was getting and got what I wanted. And I am very happy with the results.
Don’t waste any more time. Check out his website and sign up for a phone consultation. You can’t go wrong. – Michael S., Palo Alto, CA on 4/3/2014 Yelp review
