For Rekindle School students
For non-Rekindle School students
- Are you a student in the REKINDLE SCHOOL program, getting ready to audition for the first time?
- Or a Seattle actor in need of a professional ACTOR HEADSHOT at an affordable price?
- Is your old headshot getting a little dog-eared and dated?
- Have you changed your “look,” style or hair since it was taken?
- Or are you auditioning for a different character type these days, and needing new headshot to reflect it?
- Whether you’re an established Seattle actor in need of a new headshot, or a student in our program ready to start auditioning, a high quality headshot will help you respond to audition notices with confidence.
- Actor headshots can cost hundreds of dollars. Our service is designed to give students a professional quality headshot at an affordable price.

How it works
- You sign up and prepay using the “sign me up” button.
- We process your order and put you in touch with the photographer, who arranges a time and place to meet you.
- The photographer’s studio is in Bellevue.
- Note: To keep the headshots affordable, this is a “no frills” service. You are responsible for your own hair and makeup. It’s fine to bring someone to help do your makeup if you like.
- If this is your first headshot, we encourage students to take our Auditioning 101: Headshots, Reels and Resumes class first, to help you plan your headshot session.
- Many actor headshots need a minor retouch (removing stray hairs, lightening or removing temporary features such as pimples, etc.) A (simple) basic retouch in Photoshop is included. If you want more comprehensive retouch, it is available for an additional fee.
- The photographer will take multiple shots. You will have an opportunity to view the photos on-screen after they have been taken, and choose five of them.
- High resolution digital files of the five you choose will be sent to you by email.
- The price includes full rights to use the photos taken as actor headshots without paying an additional fee.
- As with all headshots, the photographer’s fee does not include printing, which can be done at any good copy or print shop.
I’m a student in a different school. Can I pay the student rate?
At this point the discounted rate is only available for current or former students in the Rekindle School program. But anyone can buy a non-discounted headshot
What if I pay, but then am not able to schedule a time that works mutually for myself and the photographer?
There’s usually no problem in scheduling, but if that happens, just let us know and we will issue a full refund.
