Los Angeles + Detroit Headshot photographer, Vanie Poyey
I do what I do because I want to help you succeed. I want to empower you with the tools you need to market yourself. My goal is not to give you the most beautiful LA headshots you’ve ever taken, there’s plenty opportunity for that when you’re BIG?. My goal is to give you images with life instead of vacant stares. Whether you’re an actor, a business person or looking for social media + dating headshots, my goal is to give you images that specifically showcase your range without pushing you against type. My goal is to figure out your stereotype, your essence and to capitalize on it. I do this by consulting with you, by directing you every step of the way and by producing specific marketing looks that will help get you in the door. I am a director, an LA headshot photographer for people who refuse to pose! Click here for more info and ask me how I can help you!

Casting Networks Interview
“Headshots are often the first impression casting directors have of actors. They see a thumbnail for a brief moment as they scroll through a large volume of submissions, and as an actor, you hope something about your headshot makes you stand out. But as top LA photographer Vanie Poyey tells us, it’s more than just taking a pretty picture. Knowing which characters you’re right for, as well as having a grasp of your overall brand, allows you to best market yourself as an actor. But how do you translate all this to your headshots? Poyey took time from her busy shooting schedule to give actors some guidance on the process.”
