I’m Paul Bellinger, an expert headshot photographer in Boise Idaho. Over the years I’ve become an expert in headshot photography, studying under Peter Hurley, the world’s foremost headshot photographer. At first I simply added headshots to a long list of other types of photography I was doing, because I thought any photographer can do headshots. But I quickly realized there is an art to making headshots, it’s not as simple as I thought. I also discovered that headshot customers are not like other photography customers because they typically don’t really want to be photographed and rarely have experience being photographed. This creates a challenging situation where my job is to get an amazing, confident looking headshot from someone who’s not a professional model, doesn’t really want to be there, and to do it as quickly and painlessly as possible. Over a thousand headshots later and it takes me less than 5 minutes to make someone a great new headshot today. Below I’ve shared a few photos of myself and the people and places I love.
