Award-Winning Contemporary Headshots for Young Actors, Models & Youth Performers

Our actor headshots highlight your unique personality for a stand-out look that exudes professionalism to grab the attention of casting directors. Contemporary theatrical & commercial styles for theatre, film & TV talent.

Youth actors and teen models need new headshots or comp cards every six months to keep up an accurate image of themselves. Many parents try and take these images themselves, but often it is not what the casting director requires and it can close a lot of potential opportunities. The Digital Headshots NYC studio has decades of experience working with all types of young models and youth actors of every age bracket, and can provide a personalized studio experience just for your child.

Be sure to book a shoot during times you know your child will be alert and awake, such as in the morning or right after a nap. No sugar is recommended prior to these shoots and we suggest bringing clothing that is void of any logos or cartoon characters. 

Just want photos of your child to preserve a memory? Digital Headshots NYC is fully capable of meeting your needs and getting creative to give you photos of your children that will last a lifetime.

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.
