San Diego Actor Headshot Photographer

Actor and celebrity headshots are our business. Get the best!

We bring 25 years of experience in shooting theatrical headshots for actors and celebrities to San Diego. In fact, we believe we may be the only studio in San Diego qualified to do headshots for actors auditioning for roles in LA or NY. Casting directors know us. Studios know us. And, publicists know us. We are extremely well seasoned in the entertainment industry.

Headshots for actors are very different than corporate or even modeling headshots. Theatrical headshots must capture the essence of your skills and personality and that takes experience. Speak to people in the know and check us out :)

A two-year license for auditioning, personal portfolio and personal use is included for all delivered images. We do not recommend using headshots for more than two years but extensions are available.

Contract supercedes any published terms.
