I recently used Vadym Guliuk for professional headshots. I’ve had professional headshots in the past. Vadym provided a level of professionalism and expertise that I had never experienced before. He came to my office and set up a studio quality environment. He was personable, funny and gave great advice before and during the shoot. The experience was actually enjoyable. He helped me select the most impactful photos. The end results were amazing. It’s difficult to imagine a better photographer.

Vadym Guliuk came out to my office to take headshots of me and all of my employees. Very professional and the headshots were great! One of my employees was so impressed she hired him to take her daughter’s wedding photos. I highly recommend Vadym Guliuk Photography!

What shall I wear for my shoot?

You shall wear something that makes you feel confident, but that also is comfortable and reflects on your style and purpose of the shoot.
