Welcome to the headshot photography directory. This photo directory is the result of me wanting to study headshot photography and not being able to find a decent list of the best photographers that shoot model and actor head shots.

Why collect headshot photography links?

I figure why reinvent the wheel… If I see lighting techniques or even model poses that I like, why not incorporate these elements into my own photography? Some people my think this is cheating or dishonest, but I think of it as a good way to learn. Why now just study the best? Pleople have been doing it forever. At least smart people have...
Headshot photography rankings
This list of headshot photographers is not listed in any particular order. It’s not like I’m ranking them or something. Maybe I’ll end up doing that in the future, but for now, if they’re on the list, they’re on the list… I’ve also listed my site, not because I think I’m one of the best head shot photographers in the world, but to share with you my evolution as a headshot photographer, however humble that progression may be.
