Hi! I'm Kyle Bondeson, a Chicago photographer with nearly fifteen years of experience working in portrait and commercial photography. After obtaining a photography degree through EIU's journalism department, I moved the New Mexico where I worked for a boutique portrait studio: photographing everything from newborns to high school seniors. I returned to Chicago in 2017 and started Kyle Bondeson Photography in 2018 as an outlet for my portrait photography passion while working full-time as a commercial photographer.
Today, I'm proud to offer high-quality, affordable business headshots, actor headshots, and personal brand portraits. I approach portrait photography as an opportunity to collaborate with my clients to create top-notch images tailored to their individual needs. I look forward to working with you!

Kyle is a great photographer. He makes you feel comfortable during your photoshoot session. He also has a bunch of amazing backdrops to choose from. I’m an actor, so my headshots mean the world to me. He shot them exactly how I wanted them. I have found my new headshot photographer!
I don’t even know where to start! I couldn’t be happier with my pictures! Kyle was fantastic, extremely patient, and put me at ease right away. He is also very detail-oriented and will make sure that he captures the perfect shot! He also kept his word and delivered the pictures on time as promised! I will definitely recommend his services to anyone!
Kyle is fantastic! I was on the hunt for a new headshot for months; Googled and found his website, then signed up for a studio session on the spot. Having not met him before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The photo session was great and my photos exceeded my expectations.
Kyle has taken headshots for several of my coworkers and everyone highly recommended him. Kyle did not disappoint! He was really helpful with telling me how to pose and helped make sure I didn’t have any stray hairs to ruin the photo. He has great attention to detail and eliminates any awkwardness with friendly conversation. 10/10 would recommend it!!
Kyle Bondeson is the most amazing, creative, hardworking, and well-rounded professional photographer I have ever met! I was extremely pleased with the headshots that Kyle photographed back in March. Every aspect from the lighting to the background was perfectly achieved through Kyle’s sharp attention to detail. He listened to my ideas, provided great suggestions, and made the entire experience seamless. I was also impressed with Kyle’s drive to obtain the perfect photograph, which also allowed me to choose from a wide variety of quality pictures after our session. I am very lucky to have found such a great photographer. If I could rate Kyle 100 stars for this review, the decision would be a no-brainer. He is worth every dollar! Do yourself a favor and book Kyle.
Kyle is absolutely wonderful and his work is truly exceptional! I definitely recommend shooting with him.

I believe in charging a fair price and that everyone should be able to afford a great professional headshot. Pretty simple. After moving from a smaller market, I was shocked to see the prices Chicago photographers get away with charging. Go ahead and shop around; I’ll be right here when you return.
I’ve converted 400 square feet of a large condo into a photography business; complete with a private changing area makeup mirror, and plenty of space to spread out your outfits. Please feel free to bring along a friend for moral support, hair & makeup duties, or just to help make you smile. Bonus: If you really don’t like your photos, you know where I live.
No; however, I can arrange one for you. The additional cost is between you and the makeup artist with 100% of the fee going to them. Alternatively, I’m happy to work with you to schedule your session around your makeup appointment.
Absolutely! That’s my job. Being photographed can be an uncomfortable experience for a lot of people. I know all of the tricks and tips to make you look amazing. I’ve photographed thousands of people throughout my career and haven’t encountered a single person who didn’t loosen up a few minutes into their session.
Bad hair day, the shirt looked better in your mirror, at home, etc. – I get it. These things happen. If you’re not 100% thrilled with your headshot session, I’ll reshoot it for free or offer you a full refund.
Yes, each session type comes with a set amount of retouched images built-in to the price. Additional retouched images can be purchased for $40 each or 3 for $100.
Free street parking.
Yes! I’ve spent the past 12 years photographing high school senior portraits, family portraits, children and newborn portraits. I absolutely love doing it. I currently take headshots out of a space that’s not quite big enough to fit families or get too creative with seniors. If you’re interested in booking a senior or family session, please contact me and we can work out a location for your photoshoot.
With more than 15 years of professional photography experience, Kyle Bondeson has the experience and skill set necessary to make you look your best.
