Looking For Amazing Acting Headshots?

One of my all-time favorite movies is "Funny Girl"Barbara Streisand, with her incredible voice, sang the iconic song - "I'm the Greatest Star"Being a "star" is the goal of all actors and having amazing Los Angeles acting headshots will open doors for your acting career. Your acting headshot should show your unique features, your expressiveness, (subtle smile control is incredibly important) and how well your eyes "connect" with the viewer. To successfully achieve that laser-focused eye contact, it is very important to have an excellent rapport with your photographer. Your headshot photographer acts as your director during the shoot and will help you achieve a myriad of expressive "looks". Your interaction with the photographer behind the camera is your conduit which helps you, as the actor, achieve the ultimate visual expression of yourself. At the exact moment the shutter clicks your "look" will be forever captured, helping you get one step closer to your career goals.

My goal in working with you will be to elicit those amazingly expressive headshot looks and poses while we have a great time. Being relaxed and having fun helps immeasurably! Often an actor will come into my studio with so many complex scenarios racing through their minds in order to get that "perfect shot" that the stress will be apparent all over their face. It is my job to help you to forget all of that mental baggage as you walk through my door. I will help you let your "guard" down and just talk to me. Trust me, you will communicate with your eyes (as an amazing actor should!) In addition, the minute changes in the corners of your mouth will result in a great selection of incredible headshots for your iMDb and LA Casting profile photos. You, your agent and the casting director will all love your acting headshots.
