“The perfect photo isn’t just a combination of a good camera, lighting, positioning and expression design. The perfect photo is created when digital touchups are applied with the surgical precision of pixels.” – Ted

Growing up Behind a Camera
Ted Saunders started making films at age 7, shooting action movies in the backyard after school.

In every media-related class from middle school through college he was the teachers pet, winning awards for his work, and broadcasting his videos on local television.

After college at Boston University Teddy moved to LA where he helped produce HBO’s Entourage and FOX’s House M.D. (the #1 TV drama at the time).

Ted then left corporate television in 2010 and founded Tedshots Productions to serve LA with quality headshots while also focusing on his passion of motion-picture “shots” producing short films and commercials.

Ted's Life Mission

Teddy’s mission is to show the world that we are all equal and infinitely powerful. We are all influencers with stories to tell and lessons to teach. This is why it’s important that we represent ourselves with professional media.

Teddy’s various brands and startups focus on education, collaboration and inspiration towards a more trusting, transparent and truthful “us.” This is why a portion of his income is donated to others via Project Dreambox, an organization Teddy founded to help people reach their life goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book a shoot?

Call or email Ted to schedule a time. He will then send you a calendar event with all of the information that you need. 

How soon can I book my appointment?

Often we can take you as soon as same day, but its best to schedule at least a week in advance.

What should I do to prep for my shoot?

Drink plenty of water the night before and day of to keep your skin smooth and evenly colored. Bring your best outfit(s). Unless you have a custom shoot, we wont see below the waist. 

What if I have no experience being on camera and I’m uncomfortable?

This is actually very common. Ted has many tactics to get the most authentic version of yourself. He will direct you along the way, so that you get into a flow state and aren’t stuck in your head about how you look. 

When do I get my proofs and final shots?

This depends on the shoot. If its a quick one off business look then the final shot is chosen and touched up before you leave the office. If it’s a longer shoot or an on-location shoot, then right after the shoot Ted sends you a link of online Proofs. 

Do you watermark your photos or have hidden fees?

No. We don’t like to keep your photos hostage. You are free to post any raw proofs online, although we recommend you wait for your final touched up photo. Unless you have not paid yet, we don’t watermark anything, so all photos are yours to use as freely as you wish. 

Do I need to book hair and makeup?

This is all up to you. If you think you need hair and makeup then we can bring you one of our partner stylists for an additional fee. You can also get your hair and makeup done before your appointment. 

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Of course. We even accept bitcoin.
