Nothing is more important than a great first impression. One of the most important ways to achieve this is to have a great Headshot.

If you don’t get your headshots done by a seasoned professional headshot photographer, the casting agents will know this as soon as they look at the photo and know that you are not serious enough to have taken that extra step. In New York City, you need a professional headshot photographer to take your headshots in order to compete in the acting market. The most important thing for a New York City actor without representation is their headshot as that’s the only tool they have to sell themselves and get their foot through the door.

I have been shooting actor headshots, comedians, dancers, writers, comp cards, modeling portfolios, business portraits for corporate bios, press releases, corporate websites, annual reports as well as corporate events and party’s for 15 years. I am the right choice because:

  • Over 230 recommendations on Linkedin
  • Over 50 reviews on Google
  • Top of the line digital equipment to get the highest resolution possible.
  • A member of Professional Photographers of America which keeps me up to date on new techniques and technologies as well as refreshes me in classic portrait techniques which are techniques that have been used for over 100 years which make  you look your very best.
  •  A Member of National Association of Photoshop Professionals which keeps me extremely sharp with Photoshop and Lightroom applications so I can fix anything that’s needed like blemishes, wrinkles, double chins, whiten teeth, facial thinning and more.
  • Two Convenient locations, I run two studios, one two blocks from Penn Station in New York City the other 15 minutes from GWB in Bergen County, New Jersey.
  • Your location, If you require no interruption in your schedule,  I can come to your home with minimal equipment, usually one case which is fully equipped with all the professional gear that is needed to get a great  headshot.
  •  If you are not satisfied for any reason, I will edit your image until you are satisfied, or re-shoot if needed. If you are still not satisfied, I will issue a refund.

    Thank you so much! The pictures are great! There are so many good ones to choose from. It will take me a while to make a decision about a comp card:) You were absolutely wonderful with Gabi today. I was very impressed and will gladly share my opinion on one of the sites where I found all of that positive feedback about you.ReplyCancel

    “It was a pleasure working with Alex. It’s so stressful finding a photographer, especially one I feel comfortable working with. Alex allayed my concerns the moment I met him and the results were great! It turned out that the hardest part of working with Alex was deciding which photo to select. Thank you very much Alex!”

    Hi there,
    I’m curious about what packages and pricing you have for headshots. I’m an aspiring actor but all of my shots are years out of date so I desperately need to update my look. I live in North Plainfield NJ, but I can just as easily make it into Manhattan. Your work looks pretty amazing and I hope we can work something out. Hope to hear from you soon and thanks very much for your time and consideration!ReplyCancel

    Always a pleasure!:

    I have had the pleasure of working twice with Adam in his studio, and I have to say, he s a terrific photographer! His eye for the camera is amazing, and he makes you feel completely at ease in the studio! Alex’s quality, efficiency and reasonable pricing make him indispensable to the working actor constantly needing to update their headshot!ReplyCancel

    I received Alex Kaplan’s info through a referral for head shots. When I looked at his website, I was very impressed with the quality of his work. Alex was willing to work with my schedule and very accommodating about fitting in my shoot. He was really helpful with his direction on set and creative when it came to shooting both inside and outside. I would definitely use Alex again and recommend him to others looking for high quality photos.

    My husband and I are absolutely thrilled with the photos from our wedding! Our photographer, Brian, was a true artist and went above and beyond our expectations. We had a blast taking pictures, and I was so happy to see the natural, candid shots of the wedding party and my guests. Brian was amazing at capturing moments without you even knowing that he was there taking pictures. I am highly recommending this studio to all of my friends and family who are getting married this year. My friend also used this studio for her wedding and again had beautiful results and at a good price.ReplyCancel
