What's important to me, is that I help my clients make a good first impression.

My name is Tan Khuu and I am a 4th year Doctor of Dental Surgery student at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC.  I picked up a camera in 2001 and have not been able to put it down since. My favorite subject matter is people, specifically portraiture.  My aim is to capture that which is compelling, beautiful, and authentic about my subject.  What's important to me, is that I help my clients make a good first impression visually - to show the world their likeness in a way that they can be proud of.

Natural Light Sessions

MOST POPULAR


The best time for a natural light session is early morning when the sun is less harsh, and there's even a touch a gold in the light's color temperature.  

Session Information

Set-up Fee:  None

Location:  Outdoors. Typically close to our dental school.

Time: I can start as early as 6:30 AM.  

Session Length:  Headshots take around 10-15 minutes per person.

** Group Discounts Are Available ** 


Session Outline:

  • First 5 minutes utilized for calibration of camera to lighting scenario and acclimate you (the subject) to being photographed.  Any anxiety shows in the image, so we can only get good shots once you're comfortable being in front of the camera.  
  • The rest of the session time is used for getting right shots - the legacy quality shots that you want.

    Studio Lighting 

    Studio lighting typically yields photographs that are sharper and has higher contrast. We shoot with camera settings that are different from what we would use for natural light.
