About Me

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  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.

  • How does it all work?

On the day of you shoot, we ask you please arrive at least 5 minutes early. We will get you checked in and ready for your shoot. During your shoot, Tobin (the magician behind the lens) will coach 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 brief time in from of the lens done! That’s it!

  • 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 multiple outfits and 2 images for each... go for it. 2 sessions will be 2x10 minutes with 2 outfits/people and the amount of images purchased in each package added together. 3 sessions will be 3x10 minutes with 3 outfits/people and the amount of images purchased in each package added together.
