Your headshot is one of your most important business tools.

Whether it’s fresh actor headshots, polished and professional corporate headshots, or a rebrand of your creative business, your headshots communicate who you are – your unique energy – and what your audience can expect to feel around you and your work.

Now as a performer,  I know myself how daunting it can feel stepping in front of the lens!  I also know that when you allow the camera to capture your true essence, you become magnetic.  

It’s my job to help you bring this essence out, through a relaxed, flexible and collaborative process.  I use natural light and a variety of Sydney locations to co-create headshots with you that feel soulful, authentic and engaging.

Headshots have the power to attract your ideal audience, share your story & grow your business. I'm excited about what we can create together.

Your Headshots Experience

photo session

Rajan Velu headshots Sydney


When we book your session, I first listen to understand who you are, and what qualities/energy you want to convey.

Together, we'll plan the location and wardrobe - as well as recommendations for great hair and makeup artists if desired - so that you feel supported in preparing for our session.

If you have any questions or requests, let me know. Share your vision with me!

Phoebe Ashton, headshots Sydney


Our photo session is all about authentic connection. So we take our time, breathe and give ourselves permission to play and explore.
I create a relaxed, flexible and collaborative environment - with natural light and a variety of locations - so we can really bring out your authentic self.
I'm always happy to guide you with posing and direction, however I often find engaging our own imaginations and creativity gives us a beautiful emotional depth.

Alana Birtles, Sydney actor headshots


Within one week of our shoot, you'll receive all your photos in a private online gallery. You can view, share and download all of your images and create a shortlist.

Select your three favourite photos for retouching, and I'll get to work! You'll also have the opportunity to purchase more photos from your collection.
