Author Portraits

Besides a book cover, an author portrait is the most important visual tool in book marketing. A quality portrait signals a professional author and a quality work. Selfies with an iPhone rarely cut it. Would you see a selfie on a book by a Stephen King or J.K. Rowling?



Author portraits aren’t just for the back of the book. They are used with press releases, online and other promotional materials. So, it’s also helpful to have range of images to develop a three-dimensional feel for the author.



Balefire has been shooting portraits for years. We would be pleased to help you upgrade your brand through portraiture, ranging from simple head shots to environmental portraits.
