Headshots for Seattle Actors

I started my photography business in 2018, but have been taking photos for over 10 years, getting really serious about things in 2016. I love taking pictures of people, landscapes, birds… But my passion is photographing actors.

I have been working in the acting industry since 2000, so my first headshot was black & white, printed on glossy photo paper, and completely unflattering. Back in those days, Facebook was not around, and social media sharing was far from a phenomenon. In today’s world, actor headshots are in color, audition scheduling happens online (and sometimes on social media platforms) and the photo needs to pop! The headshot is the most important marketing tool for the actor, and to get called into the room, casting directors are often looking at your thumbnail image, so having a professional headshot that attracts attention is absolutely essential.

Currently, I am photographing actors on-location, in natural light, in the Seattle area. My goal is to deliver high quality, industry standard images, which showcase each actor in their most radiant and honest essence. I understand the actor, and with your help, we can create images that reveal who you truly are. For a sample of my work, please head to my Gallery.
