It is my job to oversee my Artists needs no matter what.

If they are on a set in LA or working on soap opera in New York or on assignment in Miami, Chicago, Vegas or our new friends in Hollywood East...Atlanta!

I am the "go to guy" that's only a phone call away arranging the step by step process.

If a client follows through with good marketing tools, a positive attitude, first class work presentation there is a higher chance of getting the Casting Directors approval

Casting Directors will always be holding the key to an Artists next job or audition.

Part 3 of 3

Award Winning Article By Valentino-South London Press September 14, 2017

99% of the time the Actor will get the interview through their Headshot~

So it is pretty obvious that the actor needs a good one~

Or more accurately a Great One~

Show business is far too competitive to break into it with a cheap & unflattering Headshot~

Your Headshot should be a thought-provoking one that illustrates your energy or particular mood~

Your Headshot should endear the viewer enough to look beyond the picture & find out more about you~

Your Headshot should signal "Pick Me" or "Consider Me" for your next

If you are like most Actors then you want your Headshots to be worth your valuable time & money~

As an Actor, you realize that you have to make strong powerful connections with your audience~

You know not to always play it safe but to mix it up & take the important risks & make specific choices~

Each Artist brings something new & special to the marketing table but it is the Photographer's energy & spirit that must reach out beyond the boundaries
& make that certain connection the same way a great Director does~

These same principles apply to the choice of your Headshot Photographer~

Over the years I have had the pleasure to work with many Celebrity Artists.

My workmanship time & time again makes that certain connection with Casting Directors & Agents in today's vast marketplace.

"Capturing your Spirit & Essence is what creates powerful images that demand the viewers' attention which is what my workmanship is really all about"

There are two ways of spreading light-To be the candle or the Mirror that reflects it.

I am proud of my 20+ years of accomplishments of making artists come alive in this Industry.
