Baton Rouge & Louisiana HEADSHOT & PORTRAIT Photographer

My name is Damion Haines and I am a photographer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

I specialize in work as a Headshot and portrait photographer with a contemporary and true to color style. I have larked from the best in business with my headshot mentor being Peter Hurley, a world renowned New York headshot photographer. My mentor for portrait photography is Grand Master photographer Jerry Ghionis. My work has been recognized by both of these leading photographers.

I have won multiple industry awards for wedding, portrait and headshot photography. Now retired from wedding photography I specialize in headshots and portraits so I can commit to being the best in my chosen genres of photography.

My images are described as elegant, dramatic and contemporary with a fashion twist in all my photo shoots. I have a studio in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but also cover many other areas for on location photography.


I offer corporate and business headshot portraits on a variety of different backgrounds in a fully air conditioned photography studio here in Baton Rouge Louisiana. Or if you have a number of employees and colleagues that require business headshot photos, I can come and set up a mobile studio in your place of business.

I have worked for RPM Productions and The Miss Teen USA corporation and offer pageant headshot portraits. Amazing photos are a very important part of entering Pageants as they can even win a competitor awards for Most Photogenic. My images have won most photogenic in pageants locally and notionally. If you are new to pageants or need new headshot for competitions or promotional work then contact me.

As a model wanting to break in to the industry or fashion modeling whether it is for boutiques or editorial or catwalk fashion shows, you will want to start with a solid portfolio to show at auditions. I offer a portfolio building photoshoot, which incorporates a studio photo shoot and an outdoor photo shoot both shot in a high fashion style.


One of the things I am excited about is to be part of one a community of specialist headshot photographers who are the best from all over the world. The Headshot Crew is the baby of world renowned and award winning headshot photographer Peter Hurley. Within the Headshot Crew we strive to continuously educate and enhance our skills and abilities to remain relevant and always give our clients the ultimate headshot experience.

In 2020 with the craziness of the pandemic Covid-19, many people lost their jobs and needed to enter the job market. Some of those people hadn't been job seeking for many years and some of those people needed the perfect resume but the cost of professional headshots was maybe out of their budget with being unemployed. The Headshot Crew decided to run an initiative around the US to offer people effected by Covid the chase to get a free headshot from one of the top 200 headshot photographers in the world. I was hand selected by Peter Hurley himself to be one of those photographers who worked to break a world record and shoot 10000 headshots around the US in just 24 hours
