Understanding the importance of an exceptional headshot in the acting industry, Jeffrey uses his technical artistry to get actors noticed, combining the myriad aspects of lighting, wardrobe, hair, makeup and expression to create a photo of the actor that stands out from the hundreds—if not thousands—of photos that Casting Directors must sift through on a daily basis.

In addition to these packages, clients may choose to opt-in for a professional hair and makeup artist for more polished hair and makeup in the perfect headshot photos—an absolute must for anyone working in the industry.
“It’s not just about creating a well-lit, in-focus shot of someone; it’s about that first impression—that’s the essence of a headshot. Let’s be honest—Casting Directors go through hundreds of headshots daily, and in order to stand out, they need to see who you are. The image needs to create an emotion and a story about the person. When those two elements come together, that’s when I can help someone to create an extraordinary headshot.”
