As a fellow performer, getting to meet & work with so many talented artists is one of my favorite aspects of headshot photography. Like most, photography started for me years ago as just a creative hobby, but it wasn't long before I discovered the ability to capture people at their best a turn it into a very successful business.
Coming from a professional performing background, I know how important marketing yourself wisely can make a huge difference in your success. A good headshot not only represents what you look like, but captures a very real moment into who you are. This moment is what I strive to get out of my clients on every shoot. My #1 goal is to discover the aspect that makes a casting director scream "I want to get to know them!".
I look forward to meeting you and guiding you towards a personally unique and captivating image....and having a lot of fun in the process!
