Actor and Artist Headshots

Professional headshots may be the single most valuable marketing tool an actor or artist can possess.


Your Actor/Artist headshots should:

  • Show off your spark, your personality.
  • Give an accurate sense of the characters you may be best suited for playing.
  • Capture your nuances and style.
  • Present a mix of image styles and "looks," most (but not all) with engaging eye contact.
  • Have framing, lighting, and background that all enhance you as the subject without being distracting (ideally, they tell a story).
  • Be authentic and look like the person who will show up for auditions.

We begin by spending some time getting acquainted and talking about your goals and activities.

Then we will shoot in a variety of outfits and styles, against a variety of backgrounds, to make sure we capture different facets of your personality – your "brand" – what people should expect when they interact with you.

And then, together, we will evaluate your shots and pick the very best ones, right there on the spot. A few days later, you will have new images with which to refresh your online portfolio or website.

Which Type Do You Need?

Theatrical: Geared toward casting in films, TV, and plays. Conveys more emotional depth and range. Can be more focused on identifiable personality types. Tends to be darker, Rembrandt lighting, moodier.

Commercial: Aimed mainly at the advertising industry, this displays emotional energy and charisma. It demonstrates your ability to sell a product or brand. The lighting is brighter and punchier, with less shadow.
