About Me

Hi, I’m Esther, a Melbourne based photographer who specialises in headshots for actors. I have worked in the industry as an actor and photographer for 20 years and have a unique perspective when it comes to shooting headshots.

I shoot with natural light in both indoor and outdoor locations; I love working with actors and my headshot sessions are relaxed and fun! I take great care to make sure your headshot is stunning and captures your individuality and warmth. Take a look at some of Melbourne Actors’ Headshots most recent work.

I have worked with graduates from NIDA, WAAPA, VCA, 16th Street and Howard Fine Studio as well as many agents and casting agents. I have studio locations both north and south side of Melbourne.


A 1 hour and 15 minute photo shoot is $290.00

For this price you’ll get:

  • A 15 minute pre-shoot consultation to discuss wardrobe, hair and make up
  • A 1 hour shoot
  • A short list (about 40-50) of your best images in a PDF gallery
  • 3 professionally retouched headshots formatted for both print and web.

This price does not include hair and make up. I urge all my clients to invest in a professional H&MU artist. This must be booked and paid for by you, however, I can offer suggestions.

Industry Q&A Session $50 for 30 minutes

Are you just starting in the industry?

Wondering about how to get an agent?

How to get auditions?

Add the Industry Q&A Session to your booking and I can help you with all of this and more!

I have auditioned for drama school (3 times!), did the three year NIDA full time course (1997-99), dealt with many agents and done countless auditions in my 20 year career. I know how daunting and confusing it can all be – especially when you are just starting out. The Q&A sessions are designed for you to ask all your burning questions about the industry and for me to give you honest and sound advice to get you started.
