About Melbourne Actors’ Headshots

Hi, I’m Esther, a Melbourne based photographer who specalises 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.

Headshot Packages & Rates

Basic Headshots – $260.00
This package is great for either professional actors who want to top up existing headshots or for beginners who are looking for an agent or just getting started.

You’ll get:

  • A pre-shoot consultation to discuss wardrobe, hair and make up
  • A 1 hour shoot
  • A short list of your best images in a PDF gallery
  • 2 professionally retouched headshots formatted for both print and web.


Standard Headshots – $360.00

This is the most popular package. It’s great for established actors who want to add more headshots to an existing folio or for beginners who want a wider range of looks in their folio.

You’ll get:

  • A pre-shoot consultation to discuss wardrobe, hair and make up
  • A 1.5 hour shoot
  • A short list of your best images in a PDF gallery
  • 4 professionally retouched headshots formatted for both print and web.

Professional Headshot – $460.00

  • A 2 hour shoot

These prices do not include hair and make up. I urge all of my clients to invest in a professional hair and make up artist. This must be organised, booked and paid for by you; however I can offer suggestions.

After the session you’ll be sent a PDF proof sheet with a long list of photos. From this list you can chose either two or four images to be retouched (depending on which package you book). Each additional image you chose to get retouched is an extra $30.00. Allow 2-3 days turn around for the final headshots to be sent back to you. The final headshots will be sent back in both print and web format, ready for Showcast, Casting Networks, Star Now and social media sites.

Once you book a session I will send you information about getting ready for a headshot, how to choose what clothes to bring and how the shoot will run on the day. Or take a look at my FAQs for a brief run down on what to expect and how to prepare for a headshot.
