Your headshot needs to stand out from hundreds of others to get you in the door, but that's not enough. We want to get you in the door for the roles that you are right for. Together, you and I will create compelling, beautiful images that LOOK LIKE YOU. 

I am an experienced photographer with extensive training as an actor, and I love to bring that into my shoots. I've been on the other side of the camera, and I know all too well what it's like to not feel comfortable or relaxed, or to feel like you haven't got a clue what to do in front of the camera. Let's be honest, most of us weren't trained in having our picture taken! As a photographer, I try to bring it all back to what you are trained in: ACTING. I direct my clients constantly throughout the shoot with a variety of scenarios, adjectives, and physical direction, designed to keep you engaged and emotionally present. The result is a huge variety of compelling headshots to cover every type of role each actor may be called in for.

I have several different packages available depending on your specific needs/budget, ranging from $300-$500. Each offers a different number of looks and retouched images, with additional retouched shots priced at $35 apiece. Check out all the details of each package on the Rates page on my website:

My clients are the best, and here are some of the kind words I've gotten back from them:

"My new headshots from Peter Carrier have given me a level of confidence when walking into auditions that I've never had before. I used to worry that, even if I'd given a good audition, my headshot might hold me back from getting a callback or a job because it didn't really look like me. The first thing my colleagues have said about my new headshots has been precisely that they DO look like me. Peter is expert not only at making you look good, but at making you look like YOU." Brian Michael Henry (Westchester B'Way Theatre, Bristol Riverside Theatre, Ivoryton Playhouse)

"This shot is THE ONE. BOOM.  It's beautiful. Peter, this is by far the best *expletive* headshot I've ever had taken. THANK YOU. THANK YOU." - Leah Gabriel (Titan Theatre Company, Cortland Rep)

"I LOVE!!!! They really are gorgeous. What a blast!!" - Jessica Lee Goldyn (Bway: Hello, Dolly!, A Chorus Line, Finding Neverland, Tuck Everlasting)
