When was the last time you had a headshot taken? You may think, “Never. I’m not a model, so why would I need portraits or headshots?”

Professional headshots are not just for fashion magazines anymore. In today’s digital world of social media (both business and personal), everyone needs an impressive headshot. Everyone – business professionals, teachers, government employees, stay-at-home moms and dads, volunteers … even kids can benefit from a professional headshot.

This is where 5 Digit Studios steps in. A divisiont of ZCode Magazines, 5 Digit Studios has recently built two full-service photo studios inside their expansive media center in the Rancho Bernardo Business Park (about one block from the Sony Electronics building).


“You can post your headshot online on sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and so forth. Business owners and managers should use it on their company websites. Some people benefit from using them on their business cards and other professional literature. And, they are always good to have around the house so you can send them to relatives,” explained Michael Bielecki, Director of Interactive Marketing for ZCode Media and 5 Digit Studios.

Focused on simplicity and efficiency, 5 Digit Studios makes getting your new headshot easy, inexpensive and comfortable. The process begins by booking your one-hour session online at www.5digitstudios.com. Once you arrive at the ZCode Media Studio, we will take a variety of photos in different positions and in front of various backgrounds – including white and green cycloramas and various muslin backdrops. Together, we narrow your photos down to one selection.


Editing and retouching your photo is included on the spot in order to fine tune and make the perfect finished product. Within the hour, you will be on your way, disc in hand (and in your inbox).

Best of all, you get to work with some of the same professional photographers that 92129 Magazine uses for their photos and videos (with prices starting under $100 for a complete package).
