ACTOR HEADSHOTS – for Rekindle School students

Sign Me Up!

Item 31900:

• For students who have taken a class through our program, now or in the past.
• You do not need to be a current student.

$250 + $10 processing fee

  • Are you a student in the REKINDLE SCHOOL program, getting ready to audition for the first time? 

• 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 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.

• Some actor headshots can be prohibitively expensive. Our service is designed to give students a professional quality headshot at a more 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.


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.
