Actors Are Rich in Friends: Making Great Headshots More Affordable

June 05, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I've been an actor my entire adult life.  I feel at home in a theatre; I love being around theatre people.  To throw out a few generalizations, I 055_Scott055_Scott  find theatre people creative, funny, and emotionally available.  They're also dedicated, highly social, and resourceful.

One thing you don't find very often among theatre people is buckets and buckets of disposable income.  So when it comes time for new headshots, dedicated performers want the most professional, eye-catching photos money can buy, but they don't want to spend a lot of money to get them.

I want to help you get what you need.  Here's a solution, for those with excellent survival skills and a healthy social life, but not a lot of power in their bank accounts.  Gather your friends - or even just one friend - and schedule your headshots together, and I'll make your sessions more affordable.

Here are your options:


The Solo Show

$535 weekdays

$685 weekends

This option is the standard session, and your best bet if you want a relaxed, private session, with a great variety of looks to choose from.

This solo session includes unlimited time, and 2 finished images.

The Two-Hander

$475 per person

Great for good friends or couples, this session will be scheduled to have you both here at the same time.  It's a ton of fun, and we'll finish up by getting some great shots of the two of you together.

  • for just two people
  • full-length sessions
  • at least 4 looks apiece
  • includes 2 finished, high-res digital images for each person


The Ensemble Piece

$425 per person

This is great for a small group of people who don't mind a somewhat shorter session.  Sessions can be scheduled consecutively, if you each want individual time with me, or simultaneously, which makes the whole thing feel kinda like a Headshot Party.

  • for 3 or more people
  • 45-minute sessions
  • 3 looks per person
  • includes 1 finished, high-res digital image for each person


The Crowd Scene

$275 per person 061_Courtney061_Courtney

Do you need just a quick update?  Are you pretty comfortable in front of the camera?  Then this could be the session for you and your friends.  A quick (and I do mean quick) pick-me-up to hold you over until your next full headshot session.  Can be scheduled consecutively, or in groups.

  • for 5 or more people
  • 15-minute sessions
  • 1 look per person
  • includes 1 finished, high-res digital image for each person


Other Details


  • Professional hair and makeup services are available for an additional cost, and I highly recommend that we plan that into your sessions.  The extent of these services will vary according to the session schedule, number of people, and your needs, ranging from full hair and makeup, to quick touchups.  Contact me to plan your group session, and we'll work out the details.
  • Sessions must be scheduled either together or consecutively.  For a group too large to be photographed in one day, the schedule can go into consecutive days.
  • All sessions are held at my studio in Cheverly, Maryland.  If you'd like to provide a different location, there will be an additional fee of $200, which can be shared among the participants.
  • Group sessions can be scheduled, at the rates above, on either weekdays or weekends.  My weekend schedule fills up faster, so please plan ahead.
  • All participants must pay a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold their appointment time.
  • For any session, additional high-resolution digital images can be purchased at $65 apiece, or a set of three for $160.
