ACTING HEADSHOTS WITH PERSONALITY THAT LOOK LIKE YOU

So you become a booking machine

IMAGINE THIS

Imagine being a working actor and making enough money to be able to quit your day job!

Z

Imagine headshots that give your agents and managers EXACTLY what they need so you 10x your auditions!

Z

Imagine not being asked to reshoot when you get a NEW agent... or ever so you stop wasting so much money.

Z

Imagine booking jobs that actually matter on your resume so that you move the needle forward in your career.

ACCOLADES

FROM HAPPY THESPIANS

If you want headshots that get you auditions, this is your photographer! I have never had as many auditions since I got my new shots. I have gone to all the big names but Vanie’s headshots are the ones that actually do what they are supposed to do!

HAPPY THESPIAN

D.J. Simmons

After my first session a few years ago, I saw an immediate increase in auditions. This go around, I’m expecting I will see a huge uptick in opportunity.”

HAPPY THESPIAN

Kelly McLaughlin

“I’ve taken photos before that just made me look pretty but didn’t show any depth or as much personality. I’m already getting called into more auditions because of it.”

STOP WASTING TIME AND MONEY ON JUST “PRETTY” HEADSHOTS

AGENTS CAN’T USE

There’s nothing more frustrating than putting your career on hold and wasting hard earned money on endless re-shoots.

Unfortunately, too many

headshot photographers in LA

do the just “pretty” headshot which reps either don’t like, can’t use, or makes them ask for a re-shoot!

“Pretty” is good on Mom’s mantle and satisfies your vanity but it drains your wallet and makes you wait for auditions as time passes you by.
 
Headshots are a marketing tool. Not just pretty pictures of you.
 
You need headshots that are specific to the roles you play, showcase your personality, and that look like you.
 
You’re more than just pretty, your headshots should be too!

WE BRING OUT YOUR PERSONALITY

with improv games

TO ARM YOU WITH THE MARKETING TOOLS YOU NEED TO GET THE AUDITIONS AND JOBS YOU DESERVE 

Look, I get it. I know how discouraging it is to constantly have your reps ask for better headshots and have your headshots be the reason your career is on hold.

As an actress, no matter how much money💰 I spent on

headshot photography

, I always heard – “these don’t look like you” or “you have more personality than these.”
 
I didn’t get it, it was me in the pictures after all but I never got auditions.
 
Only as a photographer working closely with agents and managers did I finally realize💡
 
For headshots to be effective, you need to get specific with your looks (AKA roles you play) and show your personality as those characters.


 
I’ve developed a directing technique that makes it ✨painless✨ for you to prep your looks and act on camera, so your personality shines.

Hi, I’m Vanie

THE

LA HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER

FOR ACTORS WHO DON’T LIKE TO POSE

And I blame my parents for the misspelling of my name. My name is actually pronounced like Bonnie (Vah-nee). I’ve been around, oh 25+ years as a Los Angeles headshot photographer. Below are my team members, Kayvon and Joe, whom I’ve trained to shoot like me! So get ready for some AMAZING results no matter who you decide to have fun with.

CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU!

Selected as the Photographer for Comedian Romesh Ranganathan in Showtime’s “Just Another Immigrant”

Selected as the Photographer for Cree on “The Tia and Tamera Show”

Voted One of La’s Favorite Photographers by Backstage Readers, 3 years in a row.

Thanks

“So many photographers take pretty headshots that have no real specificity or nuance. I’ve shot with Vanie three times now and my auditions have tripled since I started working with her. My reps are thrilled every time.”

If you want to work as an actor…
 
If you want more auditions…
 
If you want a better agent or manager…
 
If you want your current reps to do better for you…
 
If you don’t want to look green as an actor starting out…
 
You need headshots with personality.

NO ONE WILL ASK FOR A RESHOOT

Your new agents will have the marketing tools they need. No more re-shoots  just because you got a new agent.

AGENTS WILL REP YOU... BETTER

If you’re looking for an agent, they’ll call you in. If you’ve got an agent, they’ll submit you – a ton!

CASTING DIRECTORS WILL WANT YOU

When your headshots show your personality as an actor in the roles you play, trust me, they’ll call you in!

YOU'LL START WORKING CONSISTENTLY

The doors will open and you’ll build your resume with quality work that moves the needle forward in your career!

YOU'LL MAKE BACK YOUR INVESTMENT

And then some. When you start to work a ton, you’ll make more than your initial investment!

YOU'LL GET ON A SHOW

No seriously. I see my clients on TV all the time and I’m talking shows like The Morning Show, Barry and more!

OUR PROMISE TO YOU

AN EASY, FUN + STRESS-FREE SESSION

1️⃣ FIRST, WE SEND OUR GUIDE ON LOOKS & WARDROBE

To help you figure out the looks that are right for you, and to prepare the wardrobe for those looks!

2️⃣ NEXT, WE PROVIDE A MINI CONSULTATION

The day of your session, we guide you on what looks will get you the most auditions and which outfits will clarify those looks.

Previous to my session with Vanie, I was getting called in for auditions maybe twice a month. Now that I am using my Vanie shots I am going out twice a day.”

GOT

QUESTIONS?

I hate having headshots taken, how will you help?

You hate posing because you don’t know what to do with your face and other photographers only direct you to pose you. Working with us will be soooo different. You’ll never hate taking headshots again because with us, you won’t pose like a model, you’ll actually act like an actor. Everyone, I mean everyone says it was the most painless and enjoyable shoot they’ve ever had. Because when you’re having fun doing what you do, there’s no way you’ll hate it.

I'm just starting out, do I need to invest in pro headshots?

IF you’re all in, then yes! Otherwise, you’ll end up getting agents who ask you to re-shoot, causing you to spend more money, because you didn’t give them the marketing tools they need. We know what industry standards are and your friend with a camera does not.🤷🏼‍♀️

If I get headshots before getting an agent, aren't they going to ask me to re-shoot?
Not true! If you invest in PROPER headshots that clearly define your marketing looks and bring out your personality, your new reps will have the tools they need to sell you with! The biggest reason they ask for a re-shoot is because you didn’t put thought into marketing and gave them just pretty pictures of you.

The

best headshot photographers in LA

know industry standards and our headshots will not put you in that position.

If you’re green, bringing them the proper marketing tools will demonstrate you’re invested in your career!

I don't have an agent yet, should I wait to get headshots with you?

No! In order to get an agent, you’ll need to submit your headshots to them. You’ll significanlty increase the odds of getting an interview by submiting headshots with personality and well thought out marketing looks. With our headshots, you’ll look like you’re invested in your craft and you’ll be taken serisouly. Plus you’ll hit the road running withoug having to wait for new headshots!

I've taken so many headshots and they never seem to work. How do I know these will work?
Have you invested in your career though or have you had friends take your headshots? Or are you the perpetual $200 headshot taker? If so, it’s time to invest in a pro because you WILL see a return on your investment.

If you’ve invested in

professional headshots

and they still didn’t work, it’s because they’re selling you as just “pretty” and don’t showcase your personality with clearly defined marketing looks! You’re more than just pretty, your headshots should be too!

What if I don't like my headshots? Do you offer a guarantee?

Nope cuz we are 100% confident your headshots will work – as long as you use them.

Plus, you’ll get to see every shot before we start (to check for hair, wardrobe etc.) and you’ll get to review every shot after we finish and before moving on to the next look.

So there really is NO WAY you’ll be surprised by what you receive later. If you don’t like something, we change it right away. Same for makeup by the way. We don’t move on to the next look until you like what you see.

That said, very very rarely people get tripped up about seeing themselves with personality and not as vacant models posing for “pretty.” If all you want is pretty we are not the photographers for you! We want you working, not just looking pretty!

Do you offer payment plans?

Your personality headshots will make back your investment and then some. But if you’re hard up for cash, absolutely! Contact us directly and we’ll set that up for you!
