Meet Your Photographer

Jacob Russell

I'm Jacob Russell, a Pittsburgh headshot photographer. Taking a headshot isn't just about pressing a button. It's about getting the lighting just right, nailing the pose, and delivering a top-notch, magazine-worthy shot. I've put in the work over the years to make sure every headshot hits that mark.


What should I wear?

Upon booking, you'll receive a prep guide with a wardrobe section to help you prepare one (or a few) outfits for your session.

How should I prepare for my session?

The preparation guide will include comprehensive tips, but most importantly you'll need to be well-rested and hydrated.

Can I choose my own photos?

Absolutely. You'll have the opportunity to select your favorite images from a gallery. These selections will then receive professional retouching to ensure you get the highest quality final product.

Where is your studio located?

My home studio is located in Polish Hill, Pittsburgh. I will give you the address and parking instructions once your session is confirmed.

Do you help with posing?

Yes, I guide posing throughout the session to ensure you look your best. We'll work together to find poses that feel natural and convey your intended image.

What is the travel fee?

For sessions conducted on-location, outside of my home studio, a travel fee of $50 applies. This covers areas within Allegheny and Westmoreland counties, accommodating clients who prefer the convenience of their chosen location.
