Headshot & Personal Branding Photography

Helping individuals and organizations who do good in the world to look great online.

Are you ready For the Next Level of success?

Are you an Entrepreneur, Social Influencer, or founder of an Organization invested in positive change? Do you have an idea that can shape the future, if only it is heard? Then I would like to introduce myself. I am Derek Pashupa Goodwin, your Personal Brand Photographer.

What is Personal Branding Photography?

Personal Branding Photography creates an instantly recognizable visual style for your brand, and attracts the right audience to your message. It combines Lifestyle Photography, Headshots, Candids, Event Photography and Product Photography. It also includes Business Analysis and and Branding Consultations. The visual storytelling we co-create for your social media and marketing will get you noticed by the right people, and spread your message to a world that is waiting.

What’s in it for me?

  • A Branding Consultation Session to define your goals, determine the storylines that will attract your ideal clients, and plan a photo shoot.

  • You keep all the high quality photos from the session for social media, websites, newsletters, print and to share with journalists.

  • Learn to overcome APF (awkward photo face), and learn to enjoy having your photos taken by someone you trust.

  • Feel like a star with fun on-location photo shoots that can include wardrobe changes, hair and makeup, props and catered vegan meals.

Your Style. Your Story. Your Business.

You are the star of the show. My job is to give you amazing tools to succeed.

Your mind, body and spirit in alignment with your surroundings. My camera, and my years of loving practice with it, in alignment with you. The light passing through one moment is captured and the timeless emerges. We create images together that tell your story, that move your audience, that remind you who you are.





I would definitely recommend working with Derek. Great, comfortable studio and he makes you feel right at home. Quick and responsive over email. Look no further if you need a headshot done in Brooklyn for a reasonable price.

Being photographed typically makes me tense and nervous but Derek made the experience easy and enjoyable. He really listened and understood the kind of photos I was looking for and made sure I got what I wanted!

I LOVE Derek’s work. He has such a welcoming and relaxed manner and the studio is cheerful and unpretentious on the first floor of a homey brownstone. I’m going back!
