Creating the Look

With our multiple studio background colors like white, black and grey (even more) available, your headshot is sure to stand out from others. If you don't need a standard plain background we can also opt for the outdoors!

Full Licensing

Any of the images you purchase from the studio will be fully licensed for you use in whatever setting is needed from social media to print work. Images will be delivered as high-resolution digital downloads. Most packages come with two images of your choice, and you can purchase more beyond that.

Outdoors On-Location Headshots

How much do headshots cost in San Diego

In a recent 2022 study in San Diego County, the cost of professional head shots varies on price but also the time allowed and final products offered after session was complete. The most affordable price was $99 and the top end was $325. This included a 30 minute session, with one outfit and one fully edited image of your choice. With so many choices out there, its best to find the photographer that fits your style and budget, but be careful not to go to cheap because you might get what you pay for.

TESTIMONIALS

Cary produced quality, professional photos at a competitive price. I was very satisfied with the product and have gotten compliments on my photos. It is great to have professional photos on hand for LinkedIn and other various reasons in my line of work. Thank you Cary!

Paul DiPaolo

Cary is not only an incredibly gifted photographer who takes amazing and beautiful photos but he is also very kind, sincere, and a consummate professional from the moment you meet him and throughout the whole time working with him. His fee and portrait prices are very reasonable and he gets your proofs to you in a timely manner. I loved all the photos he took, which made it very difficult to choose which ones to order. He is definitely a five-star photographer and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Tina Pisciotta

Working with Cary was a very comfortable, fun and professional experience. We felt like we were with a friend from the start of the project to the end. The photos turned out lovely and we are very pleased. We needed an indoor studio and his Solana Beach studio was perfect for our shots. Hope to use him for outdoor takes someday! I recommend Cary Pennington Photography without hesitation.
