My philosophy as a headshot photographer is based on my belief that your eyes are the key to a terrific headshot. The most common question that I am asked when actors come into my studio is: “how do you get people’s eyes to look like that?” Three words…confidence, comfort, and chemistry (and some great lighting, of course).

Your headshot session is an opportunity for you to show your acting range and your emotional availability. Working together to create different characters and emotions brings a depth and realness behind your eyes. The end result is a headshot that is warm and engaging with eyes that “pop off the page” when you look at the photograph.

When possible, I prefer to meet with clients prior to the shoot. I want to get to know as much as possible about the person that I am shooting. I also want you to get to know me so that when we shoot there is an established connection, thus allowing you to feel comfortable and confident.

I look forward to meeting you. I know how important your headshots are to you…and to me.

Warmest regards,
