Portraits & ​Headshots 

As a Broadway performer myself I know the importance of having that great headshot that shows those casting directors and creatives exactly who you are. That is my philosophy on both portraits and headshots- show me who you are, tell a story with your eyes. We'll work together to find those shots you just can't wait to use all the while having a good time in the process. I also try to leave you with some photos which can be used for your website or promotional material.  Contact me for rates and schedules.  

Summer Special--- 3 looks and 3 edited photos all for $300!

 

Sting in the Studio

Some of my most favorite portrait work is showing people when they are unaware of the camera. A moment of living caught through the lens.

Sting Watches

Sting was an intense, but quiet presence in the rehearsal room. Felt and certainly with opinion, but he always came from a grounded and quiet place. He is mesmerizing in rare moments of stillness.

This is the of the first head shot I took that graced a Broadway playbill. While the camera has certainly improved since then, I still love this shot. (Mostly because Emily is a talented woman who shows you exactly who she is.)

An amazing trumpet & guitar player- Chris Massa is taking Las Vegas by storm performing at the Stratosphere.

I was fascinated by the fact the Chris played both guitar and trumpet for this song. (Obviously NOT at the same time.)

Sometimes the best way to show the effectiveness of a performance is to show the audience. This is very true of this fiery performance.
