5 NY Headshot Photographers That I Like
Here is a list of good NY Headshot Photographers to research when you’re ready to get your first or your next Actors Headshot. When looking for a photographer to take your ‘Actors Headshot’ it is very important that you find a specialist in Actors Headshots. They know what is expected from the standpoint of what Casting Directors, Agents & Directors want to see. The temptation of just having a friend or a regular cheap portrait/commercial photographer will not serve you well in the Acting Community. There are standards of what a good headshot is, and professionals are expected to know what this is and deliver. Remember, you get more auditions when someone is impressed with your headshot, so the money you spend on a good one will come back to you in terms of more & better auditions!

David, has a style that I’m really liking these days. The shots look like they are from a magazine. A very natural looking vide. Feels like the people are a little more ‘real’, less glam in general from what is shown in his portfolio. Interesting use of colored backgrounds to go with hair colors and outfits. You can tell much thought was put into the aesthetics of the shoot. I see these pictures around a lot, so I know he’s in demand. davidnoles.com
