Virtual Photo Pro™
The pandemic has challenged us to find a safe and innovative way for firms to have the high-quality headshots they’ve come to expect from Gittings. We’ve developed an innovative solution to adapt to the needs of our clients. The Virtual Photo Pro™* system is an all-in-one kit shipped directly to your home or office that has everything you need to set up your own photoshoot.
VIRTUAL PHOTO PRO™ SOLUTION
Each kit comes with easy-to-follow directions and all the equipment needed to create a personal photo studio, including a camera, green screen, positioning mat, tripod, lights, and iPhone. A Gittings Global professional photographer – connected virtually – will guide you every step of the way to ensure your portraits are perfect. You’ll be given direction on lighting, poses and even wardrobe recommendations. With a green screen background, our photographers will be able to customize your background to match existing headshots or to create something completely unique.
Every portrait is professionally polished in post-production, sized to your specifications, and delivered in a high-resolution format. At the end of your shoot, simply break down the setup, pack it all back in the same case, and ship it to us using the return label.
The Virtual Photo Pro™ system can be set up in any satellite or home office. Whether you’re shooting new hires or just need updated photos, this is the perfect solution.
For firms looking to set up a Virtual Photo Pro™ studio in their office for multiple days or weeks, contact us to find out more about our virtual photography solution.
” Working with the Gittings team has been nothing but a pleasure since day one. Once we determined we needed to come up with a creative solution to getting headshots done remotely and cost efficiently, they went to work on creating a brand new approach without compromising the quality of their work. Their partnership and ingenuity provided just what we needed to get the job done. The Virtual Photo Pro™ system is an ideal solution for these times and well into the future.”

How will my photos conform to the photography specifications as outlined by my firm?
