your shoot

As an actor, you live to tell the stories that change people's lives. But first, we start by telling your story. That's what a good headshot is - your story told clearly and authentically.

Photographers are storytellers too. Good photographers listen, observe, and adjust to the person they're working with - the same qualities that make a great actor.

First we'll put on your favorite playlist. Then we'll chat about all of the traits that make you unique as an actor, and target where those qualities fit into the entertainment landscape. Your unique characteristics will inform the clothing options, shooting locations, and lighting techniques we use to tell your story. We get specific so that we can get you into the audition rooms you're perfect for.

Successful photo shoots are collaborations, not dictatorships. Our environment needs to be clear of egos, and filled with patience, humor, and open communication.

I was an actor once. I remember how overwhelming New York felt. One time, a photographer yelled at me for smiling. True story. After acting, I spent six years working at a New York talent agency where I helped guide the careers of new and established actors. I use these experiences to help my clients navigate the process of getting a great headshot and how to thrive as an actor in this crazy city.

It's so rewarding to see a photograph I've taken in a Playbill or in an article featuring one of my clients. Truly, your success is my success.

I look forward to the opportunity of telling your story!
