Based in Tacoma, Washington, Tacoma Headshots is a premium South Puget Sound headshot photography service.

Your headshot is your calling card. Make it count.

We work with bankers, real estate agents, attorneys, doctors, legislators and other professionals in Olympia, Tacoma, Bremerton, Puyallup and throughout South Puget Sound. Let us help you stand out with your pro business headshot.

Do you need a headshot?

Your headshot is an opportunity to stand out. Do you want a photographer who specializes in headshots or one who shoots everything under the sun – babies, weddings, high school seniors and pets?

If your headshot is bad, you look bad. If you want to be seen as a pro, for you to be taken seriously, you must have a killer headshot. Not an iPhone pic with the wind gently blowing your hair, not a JCPenney glamour shot with plastic palm trees in the background. Save those for your grandma’s mantel.

Why choose Tacoma Headshots?

We are not happy until you are absolutely thrilled with our service and photos. We go to great lengths to make that happen. If you’re not smiling ear-to-ear, get in touch and we’ll fix the problem. It’s that simple.

   Really great first time experience. Contract signing and deposit all happen online. When I didn’t show up timely [Mihael from Tacoma Headshots] called to check on me. Space was cool, multiple background choices. Good parking and easily accessible. I got my proofs in less than 24 hours and simply am having a hard time deciding which to go with! Highly recommend. Experience was painless and the product is great!

   My colleague and I had a fantastic experience working with Mihael for professional headshots for our new business website. He was prompt, professional, and — most importantly — a great photographer! Highly recommended.

About Mihael Blikshteyn

Mihael BlikshteynI am the founder and principal photographer of Tacoma Headshots.

I have been a commercial photographer for over 10 years and founded Tacoma Headshots in 2017. After setting up a successful real estate photography business, I saw the need for outstanding and dedicated headshot photography for real estate and other professionals in Tacoma and the surrounding region.

I am passionate about editorial storytelling as well. My images are used to further the causes of the World Wildlife Fund, the PEW Charitable Trust, Wild Salmon Center, United Way, Real Change Homeless Empowerment Project, Housing First and other conservation, cultural and social justice organizations.

In my first career spanning 15 years, I was a conservation and research fishery biologist. I have keen interests in fisheries, maritime, conservation and social justice issues and visual storytelling.

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, I grew up in Russia and New York City, and spent a decade working and living in Alaska. By way of northern California and Oregon, I settled in the South Puget Sound, Washington area.

My passion in life is visual storytelling. I craft a life that is a story worth telling.
