Rex and his team have a unique blend of talent and experience that they bring to every one of their headshot clients.
With a background in fashion and beauty, Rex has parlayed his talent into working with actors to get the perfect headshot that is attractive while projecting personality and connection.
Our studio manager, Shawn Allen McLaughlin, is an actor most recently seen as a reporter in Steven Spielberg's The Post and in HBO's The Undoing. He is also an acting teacher and coach for Mel Mac Acting Studio in NYC. He is on set with Rex during a shoot to provide coaching and character thoughts to the actor to achieve a wide range of emotions and character types. This technique also helps distract the client form being nervous in front of the camera.
Fabulous Bridie Coughlan has been Rex's resident makeup and hair artist for 10 years. She is currently an Artist in Residence at the Chanel Atelier in Soho. A former actress with a BFA in Acting from Marymount Manhattan College, Bridie understands the art of styling to make an actor look their best and represent the character types they are likely to portray in their roles. She is also a contributor to Backstage as an expert columnist offering advice on makeup and styling for headshots and auditions.
We are involved in the NYC entertainment business every day. We keep up on trends, styles, and an understanding of how to make headshots pop on casting directors' data bases (like Actors Access and Casting Networks). Our three look package includes different lighting styles and background colors because agents and casting people like a variety to work with.
Your headshot should be more than a pretty picture. It should show character, personality, and a glimpse into who you are as an actor. We take our work very seriously using our collective tools to create the very best headshot to get you into the door of agents and casting directors.
We also have a lot of fun!
