Get headshots as unique as you

Your face is one-of-a-kind. That's why my approach to headshots is to make each one unique. I work closely with you to make sure your headshot captures exactly what it is that makes you an individual. That means getting the lighting, expression, colors and all aspects of the photo exactly right to highlight your best aspects and make sure your headshot will stand head and shoulders above the crowd.

I've worked with hundreds of actors, models, dancers, musicians and business people. In each headshot session, it's my goal to create a fun, relaxed and productive environment to draw out the very best from each person who sits in front of my camera.

Book a session with me and find out why I'm a top recommendation of casting directors, agents and repeat customers.


I decided to go with Kevin Thom and I am very happy I did. I had trouble choosing because there were so many shots I loved. Kevin Thom is relaxed yet professional, listens to what you want and delivers flattering photos in a shockingly timely fashion.‎”

Headshots package for actors, musicians and other artists


Price valid until July 31, 2014

I have a standard package for headshots. This package includes the following:

  • A photoshoot of approximately one hour
  • Two or three outfit changes. I suggest you bring dressy, trendy and casual outfits.
  • Approximately 50-100 exposures
  • A password-protected web gallery of proofs
  • Two finalized images with blemishes touched up and color calibrated for printing
  • I'll prepare your photos in a printable headshot layout with your name on the bottom
  • I'll also provide your chosen photos in high resolution JPG for submission to print media, and web resolution JPG for use on websites
  • I'll provide your finalized images by Internet download
  • A license to use the two finalized photos for your personal promotional needs. You'll be able to print as many headshots as you wish.
  • Additional finalized images are available at a cost of $35 each.
  • The optional professional hair and makeup artist costs $120. If you'd like to hire a hair and makeup artist, please allow me a week to coordinate the dates and make sure we can have someone available for you.

How to book your headshots shoot

  1. Contact me to discuss your headshots. You can find my contact info at the bottom of this page. We'll talk about the intended purpose, decide if you need a hair and makeup artist, and answer any of your questions about the process.
  2. While we're on the phone, we'll decide a date for your shoot. Typically I need about a week to line everything up, but if you're in a real hurry, we may be able do it sooner.
  3. Pay your deposit for the shoot. The deposit is 50% of the fee for the shoot. It holds your reservation on that time slot. The deposit is non-refundable. However, if you need to cancel or re-schedule, you may do so up to 48 hours before your shoot without losing the deposit.
  4. Once I've received your deposit, we're all ready to go. You just need to show up for your shoot and let me take care of the rest!

What to bring

  • Two or three different outfits representing the styles you'd like to portray in your headshots. I recommend casual, slightly dressy, and trendy outfits. You should try to avoid colors that are too loud and bright, and also avoid strong patterns, logos, or other distracting elements in your clothing.
  • If you have dry or chapped lips, consider bringing some lip balm or chapstick.
  • If you have red eyes, consider bringing some eye drops, like Visine.
  • If you've arranged with me for a hair and makeup artist, show up with clean hair and no makeup on. If you are doing your own hair and makeup, please arrive with your styling already done. You can bring hair products and makeup to do touchups and adjustments here if you wish.
  • Bring some music that you like to listen to. It's not mandatory, but it's fun!
  • Payment for the photo shoot, and the hair and makeup if you've chosen that option.

Hair and makeup

I work with a number of very talented and skilled hair and makeup artists. Even if you do your own hair and makeup every day, I recommend that you hire a professional for your photos. The pros know how to get your look "just right" for the camera. Makeup for photography is slightly different and requires more perfection than everyday makeup. The cost is $120 for this service.

Think about it: Your headshot represents you when you're not there. So, it should express something about you, and show you as you want to be seen. Your headshot should not only show your appearance, but your attitude and personality too.
