Best Headshot Photographers NYC

Your Career Is My Focus

The best headshot photographers NYC has to offer don’t rely solely on the images they create. They also rely on the success of the actors they photograph.

I’ve had the privilege of photographing hundreds of actors, many who were just beginning their careers. And headshots get the audition process going—making a huge difference in getting in the room, and booking the job. So when I help an actor increase their auditions, or get higher quality/better-fitting auditions, it makes me incredibly happy.

Every Actor Is Unique

Anyone can set up a camera, set it to “auto”, figure out some good light, and snap a photo. Because that sounds easy, a lot of photographers do just that. And it might create decent images, but it doesn’t create great headshots.

I want to be better than any old photographer. I want to be one of the best headshot photographers NYC has ever seen. Although New York City has a lot of people offering to take photos of actors, not everyone has put in much time and effort. They haven’t learned the industry, the ins-and-outs of casting, and aren’t in the same shoes as an actor trying to book a gig. Because I’ve put in the work, I connect with the actors I photograph on a different level.

Actors In Their Own Words

Zach Greer Agent Dollar, Catch Me if You Can, Tent Theatre

My experience with Nick was great! He was very professional and had a great way of helping me relax and just feel at ease during the session.

I really appreciated how it wasn't "one size fits all" and instead he found special angles and areas to highlight my physical attributes and made me feel confident in how I was looking. I was most surprised by how they turned out! I've always looked at headshots of actors I admire and I honestly never thought mine could look the way theirs do. I was very impressed with the edits and the shots themselves!

An overwhelmingly positive experience! Family, friends, and faculty all agree that my headshots feel like me and that I have three very distinct looks that can work for three distinct character types. Thank you Nick! It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to see you in the near future!

Vinnie Costa Actor, TV Host

The feedback I've gotten the most on my Nick Coleman headshot? 'This picture looks exactly like you.' And that's saying something! Highly recommended.


I was absolutely thrilled with Nick Coleman's work. The ease and comfort he brought to our shoot are evident in the finished product. I have and will continue to recommend Nick to all my colleagues.

Kat Harter Miss Casewell, The Mousetrap (Tent Theatre)

Awesome! Nick is very personable and encouraging—he reminded me to take it easy; it’s not about posing. I was surprised to be more comfortable than I thought I’d be.

Morgan Carroll Aetna Commercial

This was my first time getting headshots done and I don't think I could have gone with a better photographer. Nick was detailed, attentive, and wanted the best for me and my session/headshots.

I was surprised by how many outfits I was able to use during my session! I was photographed in almost all of them, and I think I brought around six different outfits.

Over the past four or so months, I've booked feature roles, multiple commercials, and have used my shots in other areas like comedy.

Knowing that Nick was available for questions and tips both beforehand, during, and after the shoot was huge. Being new to the industry, it was nice to know that someone was looking out for my best interests, and equally as invested in the experience as I was.

Henry Zubaty

My session was easy and fun! The most helpful part of the session was how Nick made me feel relaxed and confident. I was surprised by the fantastic studio! Everything about it is perfect... location, parking, amenities provided and ambiance. The response to my new headshots has been enthusiastic!

Cat Tan Actor, Writer

Nick is very talented and makes you feel as comfortable as possible. I am consistently told that my headshots look like me and how wonderful the lighting is.

Dennis Bush Playwright

Nick is, quite simply, the best.

Eden Tuckman Student Actor

Fun! Highly recommend. Nick is trustworthy, intelligent, talented and professional. I trusted he knew what he was doing... and he sure did!

Tahir Register Singer/Songwriter

Nick was great! It is a very clean, professional environment and he makes you feel very welcome and comfortable, which is the ONLY way to get the best shots possible...

Jamie Carroll AMC's Dietland

Nick kept the atmosphere fun and collaborative. I felt as though he heard my ideas and was able to incorporate them in a way that helped me put my best foot forward.

Nick has not only a keen eye as a photographer but an absolute and thorough understanding of the realities of being an actor in today's ever-changing market. His shots are designed to suit your type while at the same time capturing your unique personality.

I was surprised by how fun the shoot was! In the past, headshot sessions have left me feeling a bit self-conscious—not this time.

The response has been overwhelmingly positive. The shots are on-type and capture me as an actor.

Allegra Schaeffer Coricopat, CATS, Missouri State University

My Session was great. Nick made me feel comfortable and I knew I was in good hands.

Probably the most helpful part of the session, other than getting good headshots, his knowledge of colors that would flatter me the most.
