You Deserve to Make

a Great First Impression

and your headshot is often when that first impression is made!

RapidFirePortraits specialize in stand-out & outstanding business portraits, executed in an efficient and effective process while maintaining an exceptional product and overall experience.

We understand the demands business professionals face daily, so we have created a way to take the guesswork (and leg work) out of getting professional portraits.  For your convenience, RapidFirePortraits can take place on location or in our Shawnigan Lake covid conscious studio.

RapidFirePortraits is powered by Mr&Mrs Smith Studios. This award winning, internationally sought after studio served Vancouver (and clients from all around the world) since 2006, until moving to Vancouver Island in 2020, bringing with them a wealth of experience and expertise to each RapidFirePortrait session. 

Being a full service studio, Mr&Mrs Smith Studios understands that not everyone is in a position (or has the need) to come in for our full branding experience focusing on marketing, brand strategy & online web presence, so we created a fun tapas version of working with us, so that everyone can, not only get portraits they can use with pride, but actually have some fun getting them taken. 

We created RapidFirePortraits because we believe EVERYONE deserves professional portraits they are proud to use, that doesn’t just show what they look like, but demonstrates who they are, building trust with their first impression.

Frequently asked questions

How does it all work, on-location?


That is the BIG question isn't it. While booking your on location RapidFirePortrait session, we will discuss the location and timing of your session. This will vary depending on where we are photographing, your needs and the time we will need to set up our 'studio to go'. Once you have booked in your RapidFirePortrait session, you will receive an email with tips and tricks to prep for your shoot, what to wear and bring, and a confirmation about the timing and location of your photoshoot. On the day of you shoot, we ask you please arrive at the location at least 5 minutes early to allow us to go over health safety protocols and then bring you into the shooting space. Then, we will get you settled and ready for your shoot. If you added hair and/or make up to your shoot, Sarah (the makeup artist and photography assistant extraordinaire) will take care of you. Once you are photo ready, Sarah will keep her eye on all the little details like hair, neck ties, jewelry and renegade clothing, while Tobin (the magician behind the lens) coaches you through the photoshoot. We take care of all the little things, like what to do with your hands, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy the process. After a series of different set-ups and poses, you’re done! That’s it! You get to go back to your day (and most people leave with a little more pep in their step) and we process your photos in our digital darkroom and prep your online proof gallery. Within 72 hours of your shoot, you will receive an email with the link to your personal proof gallery to choose your photos from. Having difficulty choosing? Give us a call and we can book a screensharing 'selection session' where we help guide you through the 15 minute decision making process online.




How long does it all take?


In-Studio: up to 60 minutes Here's the breakdown of your time: +3-5 minutes arrival, temperature taking, welcome +7-10 minutes in front of the camera +5-15 minutes as we prep them to show you +5-15 minutes through the selection process On-Location: 25-30 minutes Here's the breakdown of your time with us +10-15 minutes for greeting and set-up +7-10 minutes in front of the camera +5-7 minutes to pack-up NOTE: If you added hair and make-up, that can add up to 60 minutes to your time with us.




How many photos will I choose from?


The final number to choose from varies slightly from individual to individual. We generally show between 15-25 images.




How many outfit changes do I get?


Just the one you arrive in. We suggest wearing layers. Simply taking off a jacket or tie can give you multple looks from one outfit. If you woul like more than one outfit, you can stack RapidFirePortrait sessions (see the answer to the question below).




How do I choose my photos?


In-Studio Session: immediately after your time in front of the camera, we put the images into our computer and take you through a selection process that we have refined over the past decade, to help you choose the absolute best images, so you can leave knowing exactly what will be arriving at your inbox. On-Location: within 48 hrs, we will email you a link to an online proof gallery made up of 14-20 of the best images. If you would like help choosing, we can arrange for a 15 minute selection session, where we screenshare and walk you through our refined process to choose the ones you love.




I want something with more photos with multiple looks.


We like how you're thinking! Then you likely want to check our Mr&Mrs Smith Studios website for a full personal brand session, which includes 4-5 looks, includes hair and make-up (if you want it), styling from what you brought, a coached photo session with multiple set ups, a gallery of images (ranging from 150-300 polished images) and an abundance of ideas on how to use the images in for your business... plus MUCH more.




How does it all work, in-studio?


Once you have booked in your RapidFirePortrait session, you will receive an email with tips and tricks to prep for your shoot, what to wear and bring, and a confirmation about the time and place of your photoshoot. On the day of you shoot, we ask you please arrive at least 5 minutes early and stay in your car. We will come out to you and go over health safety protocols and then bring you into the studio. Then, we will get you settled and ready for your shoot. If you added hair and/or make up to your shoot, Sarah (the makeup artist and photography assistant extraordinaire) will take care of you.

We take care of all the little things, like what to do with your hands, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy the process. After a series of different set-ups and poses, you’re brief time in from of my lens done! That’s it! Sarah will then do a quick run-through of the images we created together and find the best ones to show you. As soon as she's done (which takes a few minutes), we will walk you through a refined process to help you find the images you LOVE and must have. Then...You get to go back to your day (and most people leave with a little more pep in their step) and we polish up your selections and email you a link to your online gallery within 48hrs.




Can I book multiple back to back sessions? Can I stack them?


Yes you can! Yup, it's that simple. Each RapidFirePortraits session includes one outfit and 2 images, so if you want mutliple outfits and 2 images for each... go for it. 2 sessions will be 2x15 minutes with 2 outfits and 4 included images. 3 sessions will be 3x15 minutes with 4 outfits and 4 included images. AND you can keep going. We will simply multiply the number of stacked sessions by the session fee ($370) for in-studio session. For on-location sessions, you pay the on-location fee for the first session ($450) than the in-studio session fee ($370) for any additional stacked sessions. NOTE: stacking sessions is only for individuals. Please see Team Packages for groups. HOWEVER, if you really want more than 3 outfits, we highly recommend looking at our full Modern Brand Experience over on Mr&Mrs Smith Studios, which includes hair and makeup (if desired), styling, multiple set-ups and as many images as you fall in love with.
