We Knew Them When...

Because we work with actors and actresses all the time, we meet lots of talented individuals. Many of them go on to do great things with their careers - some in theater, some as models, some in films and on television.  Recently, we've had a whole smattering of wild success stories and we wanted to share them. After all, we can say we knew them back when…

Austin is a child-actor based in Maryland, and when we found out he had played the role of a schoolyard bully on USA Network's White Collar, we were so proud! After all, we're huge fans of the show.  I think you'll agree that Austin can do the tough guy look, too.

Tracie came to us for her first headshot quite a few years ago. She has since moved on to work in the New York market, but we were really excited to hear she had a part on the super-cool CBS show, Elementary. It's a modern take on Sherlock Holmes, set in NYC. Way to go, Tracie!

Locally in the DC area, client Kevin had a part on House of Cards, the groundbreaking Netflix series that keeps everyone talking. No doubt that Kevin's great look and professional drive help him land the role! We both remember his confidence and ambition, and knew we'd hear his name again.

Speaking of a great look, this guy had it! Christian also came to us for his first professional head shots. At the time, he didn't know if acting or modeling would be the right fit, but as it turns out, he went to Los Angeles and found his way onto the CW's remake of 90210! Looks and talent are always a winning combination.

Back on the East Coast, Jasmine found work on a Discovery Channel station, the ID Network. She got a role on Deadly Affairs, a show hosted by Susan Lucci that explores cases of true crime involving hot, steamy affairs…

Finally, we are so proud of client Raja. After a move to LA, then criss-crossing the globe - literally - and filming small films, documentaries and more, Raja got a part on the Emmy-award-winning show Homeland on Showtime. We've had the pleasure of photographing Raja several times, with several very different looks and hairstyles! This is one of our favorite shots of him.

It's truly an understatement to say how PROUD we are of all our acting clients and their accomplishments. And when we see results like these, we like to glow a little bit and think we had some, very small, part in their success story by helping them with first, second or more head shots along  the way.

Congratulations to all of you on these fantastic achievements! We can't wait to see where you go next and we look forward to watching each of you accept your own Emmy awards!
