I specialize in actors. If you are on-camera talent, an actor for stage, or a standup comic, I am here for you. Let's get creative.

Youth & Teens

I love working with youth and teen actors, and am more than happy to help parents help their kids get great photos.

Business & More

If you need a new LinkedIn photo or a image for a company website, I can do that, too. I also do Lifestyle sessions, and more.


My vision:

My name is David Scott Hogan,  and I own and operate Seattle Actor Photos. In addition to photography work, I am an actor, filmmaker, and acting coach. I am a co-founder of Mighty Tripod Acting Studio, and am deeply connected with the Seattle entertainment industry, including talent agents and casting directors. What I love most about my work is helping people feel comfortable in front of my camera, and connecting with each subject so they can express themselves fully and with confidence during the photoshoot.

While you’re here, you can check out my portfolio & individual galleries, or have a peek at my latest blog post. If you are ready to schedule a session, head to the Bookings menu tab. 

If you have any questions about me or my services, just reach out. I’d love to connect.


We're trusted by clients.


With strong and specific images, you can market yourself and your talent effectively.


Being a seasoned actor, I specialize in connecting and communicating. Once I know what you are looking for, I will make sure that idea shows up in your photos.

Studio Work

I work almost exclusively out of my Seattle studio, where we have free parking and comfortable air conditioning.

All Ages

I work with actors of all ages and experience levels. If you are the parent of a child/teen actor, let's all work together.


We create quality.

My camera is the Canon R6. I use a variety of lenses – Zooms and Primes. I shoot with Profoto strobes, and can deliver your digital images in many sizes and file types.

It usually takes 1-2 weeks to get on my schedule. Please complete my short intake form, linked below, and I will follow up with you within 48 hours. If you prefer, please give me a call. I would love to chat about your headshot and marketing goals. It feels like no one likes to talk on the phone anymore, but I grew up in the 80s. so I am totally comfortable chatting on the phone.
