“I only work with one client per day, so I’m never rushing you out the door because someone else is on their way. There’s nothing worse than feeling a number at the end of a conveyor belt.”
“My hope is that the environment in my NYC studio allows actors to feel unhurried, free to collaborate, to express themselves, and to challenge themselves to make a headshot with a point of view that’s distinctly their own.”
Jordan Matter Studio
“It’s very easy to take a cool photograph. What’s difficult is to take a different cool photograph day after day, year after year. To make every actor’s headshot stand apart from the pile. That’s my intention.”

“Your headshot session is an opportunity for you to show your acting range and your emotional availablity. Working together to create different characters and emotions brings a depth and realness behind your eyes.“
“Are your pictures clickable? With casting director, and agents receiving thousands of submission a day the competition is intense. Make sure you have engaging, honest headshots that capture your acting range and castability.”
Tess Steinkolk Photography
“Headshots are not just for “identification” anymore. They are intended to be flattering and honestly representational portraits that reflect your best qualities.”
