We’re excited and honored to be taking part in this Masterclass from Flashback Theater focusing on the audition process.

This 2 day intensive will guide artists through crafting their resume, acquiring a quality headshot, preparing yourself for the audition, what to expect in the process, and several other phases of auditioning.

Our piece to this puzzle is of course the headshot. It’s my goal to help these up and coming artists best understand what to look for in their headshots, how to come across best on camera, finding a quality photographer to work with, and of course what to expect to pay for these services.

On top of that I’m excited to say that we’ll be doing mini-headshot sessions with each of the participants. That means each will walk away with at least 1 finished headshot, maybe more if time permits.

There are very limited openings for this 2 day course. If you are interested, please register as soon as possible.
