In this day and age, there are a million reasons you need a great head shot: LinkedIn profiles, social media handles, business cards, the list goes on.

Faces are notoriously known for ruining photos and one small glitch can be the difference between a right or left swipe on Tinder. Good portrait photographers are surprisingly hard to come by, thankfully Instagram is a great tool to view portfolios and find a photographer who matches your style.

Here’s our shortlist of some of the best local talent out there.

Nickthiessen

The thrill of adventure comes from accepting the risk. w/ @joellefriend #daffodil

If you follow any Vancouver models on the Gram it’s pretty much a  guarantee Nick’s taken their photo at least once. He uses dark tones and captivating textures to make his shots stand out from the crowd.

Nick is a portrait and lifestyle photographer with a flare for originality. Rather than run of the mill headshots Nick focuses on unique backdrops and camera angles.

Soooo many photos, not enough time to look through them all! Having a full time job is really killin’ my vibe… But hey, money is good too 🤑 • human: @kelseyy__d

When @valentinbrichet pulls off messy hair better than you

A post shared by Samantha Chan • Vancouver (@thesamanthachan) on


If you have eyes that pop you can bet Samantha will do a bang up job of making them show. Her portraits leave you entranced staring into the gaze of her subjects.

The best is yet to come.

Probably the best portrait photographer in Vancouver, Salvador is one hot commodity. By focusing on earthy, natural portraits Salvador keeps focus on the face without sacrificing the rich textures of his backdrops.

Joelle at Rattlesnake Ledge

Ever heard of a hiking portrait photographer? That’s the niche Zack’s created for himself. He hikes, takes pictures of views and posts epic portraits of his friends on trails. The result is a feed of adventurous individuals who have rad profile pictures for life.

A big happy birthday to this guy right here 👊 Nate dawg has been there by my side for almost all my favourite memories the past few years. Whether we were on a mountain top or a law class or landscaping in the rain or hosting a backwoods Christmas party or road tripping the coast – Nate Henczel’s presence makes anything a good time. Cheers to 23 bro 🤘
