Baxter is probably the hardest working living thing at Kyle LeMaire Photography. Everyday after a bit of cat nip, he diligently starts answering emails and phone calls like no other I know. I couldn't even get him to stop working long enough for a headshot.
Assistant, life blood, moral compass, and amazing friend. Without him, I would be a chicken with my head cut off. He grounds me, keeps me sane, forces me to think outside the box, and teaches me everyday. Also, he may or may not be my fiancé, so he kinda has too. :-)
As an actor, I know firsthand how difficult it is searching for a photographer to take your headshots. It can be a maddening experience. It doesn't have to be!
Actually it should be the easiest thing you have ever done in your life. It is just a picture. That's it.
Yes, a very important picture, but you shouldn't have to stress about it.
Just be yourself!
The presence, intensity, love, emotion, and human heart that an actor can present in front of a camera is astounding. A simple, specific story running through your imagination can help you start a career, book a job, and make you a star all in one click of a button.
When you are in front of the camera, I want you to be relaxed, confident, and fierce. I want you to feel great, look great, be great and it all starts with communication and collaboration. We will work together closely to create striking images that will get you in the room and set you up for stardom.

You’re an actor, and being on camera is what you do. Your shoot will be friendly and laid back and we’ll work together to get gorgeous shots of the unique, talented, and dynamic you. Do all your pre-shoot work, then just show up. I’ll take care of the rest!
A session lasts about 2 to 3 hours all together depending on they amount of looks. I strongly believe in shooting until we have a ton fantastic shots that give variety. The really isn't a set time limit! When we finish is when we finish!
I have an amazing rooftop here in Washington Heights. Natural light provides a lot of depth so that you are beautifully and cinematically highlighted as the center of attention, which casting directors love!
Nothing is set in stone. I take as many shots as I need for each individual person. You will leave with plenty of shots to choose from. The Average amount is between 200-350.
Speak with you peers, agent, and managers for help with discovering your type. Watch films and television.....which actors do you find yourself most like. Look at headshots of your favorite performers Spend a little time in front of the mirror and get a feel for your angles and expressions. Then stop thinking! Enjoy you time!
A “look” is defined by wardrobe and character choice. “Young Mom,” “Office Employee,” and “Blue Collar Worker” are all examples of different “looks.” It’s how agents, managers, and casting directors will define your headshot and know which roles you fit best. Know your type. Are you the “Girl Next Door?” Or are you the “Hipster” or the “Surfer Dude?” Consult with an agent, manager, or peers ahead of time to decide which looks you want to achieve.
Feel free to do your own hair and make-up, hire your own artists, or hire the wonderfully talented make-up artist who I have worked with before.
After the shoot, you will receive a link in your email that will bring you to your own private online gallery of all your proofs. Use this to choose your favorites for retouching. Forward the link on to friends, agents, managers, etc. to get opinions. Email me the numbers of one chosen image per look, and I will edit them within a few days. You then will receive and email that will contain Hi-Resoloution digital images of your retouched photos.
Yes. Yes, I am. :)
