Whether it's actor headshots, modeling portfolios, performer showcases, personal brand on LinkedIn, or corporate executives; these pictures are used for promotion but that does not mean that they have to lack artistic sensibility.
A native New Yorker, Michael Benabib is the headshot photographer for some of the most iconic names in entertainment. His work has appeared in such publications as Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone, Vibe, The New York Times and Newsweek.
“In my career I’ve photographed celebrities who are used to having their picture taken, but my greatest satisfaction has come with the headshot that got an actor that first job and kept the jobs rolling in. As an artist, I’m stimulated by challenges. My goal is to make every client feel celebrated and to make you look better than you ever thought you could.”
