New Year, New Headshots!

All indications point to a much more economically beneficial 2017 than 2016 was.  At STP Images Photography Studio, our clients are telling us that they are seeing sales activity increasing and interest building in just the first few weeks of the new year.

As your business prospects pick up in 2017, doesn’t it make sense to put your best “face” forward for your clients and potential clients?  Don’t keep using that old, dated headshot that is actually a selfie at the bar, or a crop-out from a social photo at a fundraiser or even the professional headshot you have held onto since 1997.  Your headshot is THE most important first impression you can make when most people “meet” you online.

Get your “headshot” on straight!  Give us a shout in the studio to talk about headshot options or simply click the “Headshots” tab on this website.  Our calendar stays busy, but we always can make room for one or two more!

Take a look at a few of our recent favorites below and give us a shout when YOU’RE ready to book.  Hope to hear from you soon.


Holiday Headshots!

Christmas is this coming weekend and New Year’s celebrations will ring out the following weekend.  It can be difficult to focus on work related tasks during this awesome and fun time of the year.  During this brief period of a slower work pace, why don’t you get the office staff together to get those headshots done that you’ve needed for a year or more.  The website needs updating, your LinkedIn and Facebook pages need updating with a new headshot and when the Wall Street Journal calls you to do that feature story on your impressive work empire, you need a headshot that shows the real “you”.

Book your headshots with STP Images over these holidays and get great results without losing a lot of productive time at work.  We can come to you to take natural light or standard studio lit headshots or you can send the crew to our downtown studio for traditional or contemporary headshots.

Take a look at a few of the sample headshots from the past few weeks below.  If you are ready to book, call or email us today for more information or to book your headshots.  We hope to hear from you soon.

Photography Classes!

Do you own a DSLR camera (see photo), but don’t know how to use it?  Do you have a DSLR camera and are using it, but leave it on “A” (automatic) mode and you don’t like the way your photos turn out?  Do you have a basic understanding of the camera, but want to take more dynamic photos that tell a story?  Do you have lots of photos on your camera card, but don’t know what to do with them?

We all have cell phones and most of us use the camera function on the phone.  Do you wonder why your cell phone photos are always blurry?  Do you wonder why your cell phone photos are all too dark?  Do you wonder why your cell phone photos don’t look like the photos posted by your social media friends?  Do you want to be more polished in your social media sharing of your photos?

lf you fall into any or all of these categories, we have a 2 hour class offering to help you!  Certified Professional Photographer, Todd Parker, has years of teaching experience and most recently taught the Photography 101 and Photography 201 classes at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School.  Todd designed the curriculum for these 2 hour classes in partnership with the Houston Center for Photography as well as the International Center for Photography in NYC.  These quick and helpful 2 hour classes include lecture instruction, viewing projected sample images for critique to reinforce comprehension and hands-on photography exercises to practice the concepts.

The classes are held at Vine Street Rental Studio, which provides a spectacularly beautiful backdrop for taking photos.  To see a listing of the classes, check out the class schedule in the right hand sidebar on this page.  By clicking on the class listing in the sidebar, you will be taken directly to our Eventbrite page where you can read the course descriptions, register for class, pay for your registration and print your tickets all at once.  We would love to see you in one of our classes!  Call the studio with questions or see our class listings at Vine Street Rental Studio.


Corporate Headshots for Office Staff

One of our specialities is setting up on-site at Houston corporations and businesses and photographing headshots and portraits of office staff for use on corporate websites and print publications.  This type of work isn’t easy, it isn’t for the beginner or the inexperienced.

STP Images Photography Studio is a fully insured photography studio that will celebrate its 10th anniversary in April 2017.  We’ve done this type of work over and over and over.  We are able to get in quickly, get set up and to photograph your staff or executives in a timely, but proper manner.

Once the headshots have been captured, typical turn around time is two weeks or less to receive your fully retouched files.  In 2016, we have photographed over 1,400 individuals at corporate locations.  Take a look at the samples below to see the type of work you can expect from the professionals at STP Images Photography Studio.

Pricing can be found by clicking here – Office Staff Headshots.  Call or email today for more information or to book your office staff headshots.

Headshots and Business Professional portraits

STP Images has been very busy lately and the work it takes to shoot, retouch and manage the business end of things makes it difficult to stay on top of posting our recent work.  However, after 16 separate photo shoots just this past week alone, I wanted to share a few favorites.

When you are ready for a new online “image” or a much better headshot for your social media profiles, give us a call and get on our calendar.  Our studio is beautiful and the headshots and portraits are stunning.

Take a look at just a few shots from the past week and see what you think.  If you like this and you’re ready for an update to your personal image, give us a call or shoot us an email.  We want to help you look great for your clients and friends.

STP Images Recent Work

STP Images Photography Studio has never been busier!  Just two weeks into August, we have set a record for the best 3 month period (June – July – August) in our almost 10 years of existence.  We have also experienced a widely diverse array of subjects for the photo shoots that have set this 3 month record.

We have shot hundreds of individuals for headshots, dozens of folks for Business Professional portraits, we have photographed chefs and their food, we have photographed social events, behind the scenes photos for video productions and even managed a few product photography shoots as well.

We specialize in photos of people – our headshots and portraits speak for themselves.  However, if you have a need for event photography, food photography, pet photography or family photos, give us a call.

Take a look at a few of the favorite shots from some of our recent photo shoots.




Headshot Madness!

June and July have been the busiest two month stretch in the history of STP Images, which is quickly approaching 10 years.  We owe most of this awesome stretch to our fantastic new headshot clients, our headshot clients who actively refer colleagues/friends and our Business Professional clients.

We’ve had so many great clients over the past 60 days, we decided to serve up a sampling of our favorite headshots and Business Professional portraits rather than limit profiling only one or two clients.  So, take a look at a few of our favorite images from our scores of recent shoots and give us a call at STP Images when you’re ready to upgrade your personal image.
