I'm a Headshot, Portrait and Event Photographer based in New York City.
If 20 years in NYC makes you a New Yorker, then I guess I'm a New Yorker. Originally from Missouri, I'm proud to have moonlighted as a Broadway and Broadway Touring actor.
As a Broadway actor, I experienced firsthand the importance of an excellent headshot. Casting agents look at hundreds of tiny thumbnails of actor’s headshots in search of the best match. In this sea of online images it’s imperative that you have a professional headshot that stands out and expressly represents you.
This is now true of all professions and continues to be equally important once you’re employed. Your ongoing first impression will be your “Profile Picture” and if you hope to be seen as a professional, you need a professional headshot.
My goal is to capture inspiring photos that are unmistakably your best you. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients excited about the way they look in their photographs and hearing that a headshot helped them secure the client or land the job.
