The Headshot Photographer for Actors Who Refuse to Pose!

[Headshot Photographers in LA by Vanie]

Updated for 2023.

I do what I do because I want to help actors succeed.

I want to empower you with the tools you need to market yourself.  My goal is not to give you the most beautiful pictures you’ve ever taken…there’s plenty opportunity for that when you’re famous!

My goal is to give you images with life and not vacant stares.

My goal is to give you images that specifically showcase the range you have 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, a photographer for the actor who refuses to pose!  Help your career by learning the value of marketing.

    Vanie makes it so easy for an actor to feel relaxed in front of the camera and shows her intelligence of the industry by understanding who you are and how you need to express who you are in front of the camera, then captures it.

    You are a virtuoso in the world of photography.
