Thank you for looking me up! If you are in a hurry and don’t have time to read the bio below, head to my FAQ page for the essentials about my services.
I photograph actors of all ages, working primarly in the studio, and sometimes on-location. I started my headshot 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… My Cairn Terrier, Bruno… But my primary passion is photographing actors.
I have been working as an actor since 2000, so my first headshot was black & white, printed on glossy photo paper, and completely unflattering. In today’s world, actor headshots are in color, audition scheduling happens online, and your image needs to represent you – comfortable and connected.
A 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.
My goal is to deliver high quality, industry standard images, that 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 larger sample of my work, please head to my Gallery.
Currently, I am photographing actors in my Georgetown studio, and on-location (during the spring and summer months), under natural light, in the Seattle area.
