Hey guys!

My name is Jeff Mosier and I’m a New York Headshot Photographer. My start in photography came after my last headshot session as an actor over 5 years ago.

In 10 years of failing and succeeding as an actor in New York City, I felt that something was missing from all of my various headshot sessions. I always blamed myself when I didn’t come away with the PERFECT headshot. I eventually realized that this was a common problem with the majority of actor headshots I was seeing out there, and that I certainly wasn’t alone. I started to think that maybe it wasn’t entirely my fault as an actor that my headshots weren’t turning out to be what I needed. All of the photos I was seeing were either overly stylized and focused on the “pretty picture” or an image lacking any meaningful connection with the viewer.

So I asked myself, what is the purpose of a headshot?

And then it hit me. A headshot MUST be what YOU need agents, managers and casting directors to know about you; not the idea of what a photographer thinks you should be. You must know what you want to say in your shot. And, it’s my (your photographer’s) responsibility to make sure that the image says what you need it to say and brings out the most bookable you in your session.

It’s definitely not just about making a pretty picture of you. In fact, a pretty picture might not be what you need at all.

Casting directors need to be able to see why they should bring you in. What makes you uniquely interesting? Agents want to see what’s bookable about you!

Through my own experience and analysis as an actor, and through many close relationships and conversations with casting directors and agents, I’ve developed a process that will produce the headshot you need to get hired.

During our session we will go over the different roles you are aspiring to play, figuring out exactly what your headshot needs to tell the people who matter most.
We’ll cover a broad range of connections, grounded in an easy flowing, natural approach. I want you to feel completely at ease throughout the entire process, not just the session. Music cranked or relaxed in an atmosphere that’s set up to let you be yourself. From there, the sky really is the limit when it comes to capturing the bookable you.

After your session you’ll receive a link to your gallery of images that we’ll go over to narrow down to the headshots that capture exactly what you want to say.

I look forward to the opportunity of collaborating with you on what will be a giant step in the direction we want your career to be headed in!

Cheers,
Jeff

I am constantly getting compliments on my headshots. Best of all, the whole process was a lot of fun! He had plenty of helpful suggestions, lots of enthusiasm, and he even let me borrow one of his jackets that he thought would work better for a photo. Although this review is super delayed, thank you!Tara

I couldn't have asked for a better headshot experience! Although I'm often in front of audiences, I become quite uncomfortable when asked to pose and whatnot. Jeff's studio is completely relaxed, and he's there to guide you every step of the way. He has a great eye and can really get the best out of anyone, he did for me at least. Everyone is quite impressed when I show them my headshots. The only problem was that choosing the best ones, but Jeff can help you with that as well. I'm in LA now but if the future allows I will return to Jeff when I am in need of a new portfolio.

Jeff is so awesome! He makes you feel super comfortable, and gets a lot done in a short amount of time. Out of your short session, you wind up with so many different shots in different locations and in different clothing. Then, you have a large amount of great options once he sends you the proofs. He's affordable, super sweet, and the best photographer I've been to!

We all know that headshot shoots can be traumatic and extremely expensive. Working with Jeffrey Mosier was by far the best shoot ever. So relaxed, no pressure and lots of laughs. I have been on shoots where I worry that we won't get enough good shots in the time allotted. Not a problem here at all. I didn't even know what time it was! No stress. And naturally the shots came out great. I loved that there was no makeup person there. Just me, my face and Jeffrey. That is how you will look when you go on the auditions.I highly recommend working with Jeffrey Mosier!Elise

I've worked with innumerable photographers in my life.. and hands down, Jeff is one of the best there is. The subtle nuances of the eyes that only he achieves truly make his photos speak to you. It's not just some film-esque composite; it's a breathing piece of art. I've left countless shoots - with the "best in the biz", barely scraping one or two I kind of like out of the proofs. No lie, in one shoot, I was begging Jeff for almost thirty shots. They were all so beautifully textured in different ways that I needed each one. And of course, the overwhelming response from every single person that saw his work was nothing short of awe.He will charm you; he will make you feel amazing; and he will give you brilliant end results.

I finally got headshots that represent my essence and it couldn't have been done without teamwork! We made an excellent team, although I know he would be a great partner to any actor. He is professional yet laid back, experienced, talented, and reliable. He knows exactly what he is doing yet doesn't brag about it. He takes risks and takes the pressure out of taking photos. Go to him if you want pictures that have the "it" factor! Fabulous person and photographer-so do it!

Jeffrey is awesome. I got great shots for nearly half of what I spent on my last shots. The session was super-fun and comfortable. Definitely recommend.

I told Jeff right out of the gate that I was not comfortable with nudity. Rather than push for his artistic intentions, he respected my decision and immediately put his clothes back on. That's a professional! Not only is Jeff a super cool dude with a very down to earth approach to his clients and work, but he has great teeth. You don't want to be in front of an ugly photographer when you're trying to look attractive, it's distracting. So working with Jeff was a real pleasure. He and his stellar teeth had a great sense of humor and an ability to put me and the context at ease. I'm not a photogenic guy, but Jeff made me one! I am now getting parts doubling for Richard Greico! Which means I'm free a lot to write lengthy reviews like this. Jeff has a superb eye for "good" and a keen understanding of the business, which is key! I would hard sell him and his work to any actors I know because the guy is all time! Work with Jeff? Absolutely!

At the top of the long list that sets Jeffrey apart from other photographers is the fact that he is an actor first! He understands how nerve racking the head shot process is from start to finish and he has gathered answers to all questions after years of being on both sides of the subject-photographer fence. I never thought it was possible to get so many compliments from casting and production personnel about my head shots and I never thought I would have my photographer's website memorized from all the times I've had to give it out!Another interesting thing to make mention of is that over time I have met people that I recall seeing in Jeffrey's portfolio and I must say the very energy and essence that his subjects portray in their head shot is more than evident in person. He truly captures what it is in an actor that needs to make its way to the 8x10!

So pleased! Beyond pleased! SUPER pleased! Do yourself (and your career) a favor and have Jeff take your shots. I guarantee if you don't feel at ease at first glance, you will within minutes of being around Jeff. Not only is he a skilled, intelligent, and enthusiastic photographer, he is also so fantastic to work with. The results are guaranteed when you shoot with him.

This was simply the easiest, most effortless, and perfect photo shoot. Jeff made me so comfortable, we just chatted about anything and everything, listened to great music, and shared stories, and while all that was happening, great shots kept happening! I had so many to choose from it was crazy. It was everything I could have hoped for. I highly recommend Jeff to everyone, his work is top notch and his personality perfection!

Jeff is great, he came highly recommended and proved to be extremely easy to work with. He's got a great eye for what works and his sessions aren't at all rushed. There is a great no-pressure vibe that totally sets your mind at ease and allows you to get out of your own head and simply relax and be yourself.He's personable, relaxed, no-pressure, takes great shots AND his headshot prices beat most others here in NYC.100% recommend him.

I HATE getting headshots done, and at this point won't work with anyone but Jeff. Not only is his work as a photographer amazing, he's great at working with me and making me feel my best, which translates into the pictures in a big way. I swear by him, and people ask me where I got my shots done all the time. Two thumbs up... and if I had a third thumb, I'd give him three thumbs up, too.

Jeff truly loves what he does and it comes across not only in his brilliant photos but also in the interaction between him and the actor. He gets it. His relaxed vibe is the backbone of his intense passion. The shoots are effortless. I came out of my shoots feeling relaxed, satisfied, and confident. Friends and family look at my headshots and consistently comment "That's you". Jeff is younger than most photographers, but his talent and the ease with which he conducts his shoots and business rival those of photographers who have been in the business for decades. I highly recommend Jeff for your next shoot. Not only is he a fantastic and gifted photographer, but he has the actors best interest at heart--he is good people.

I f-ing hate headshots. The tearing apart of my closet in blind determination for five outfits that somehow reveal each marketable facet of my personality, the tension while the makeup artist spends two hours making you look 'natural' and then finally the photographer's idea of what you should be, rather than who you might actually be. That being said, I will never get headshots from anyone other than Jeffrey Mosier. Ever. Jeff orchestrates the perfect balance of a casual and comfortable atmosphere with immaculate attention to detail. He captures his actors with such beauty and intensity, that they seem to pop off the page. In Los Angeles, Casting Directors rarely compliment a headshot and since I have had Jeff's, mine have inevitably become a conversation topic. Thanks so much Jeff.

Jeff is the best! I walked into the session a little nervous and he made me feel at ease right away. He sent me my shots later that day and always gets back to me right away. Everyone loves the pics I chose for my headshots and started getting auditions right away. Thanks Jeff!

Jeff Mosier, where to begin. Jeff was recommended to me from an acting coach/ actor. The very moment you step in the door Jeff makes you feel like you have been friends for longer than ever! He keeps it comfortable and fun all while being professional.Going in I felt like I was going to be a nervous wreck, and have no idea what to do considering it was my first head shot session ever, but it was the complete OPPOSITE. He keeps it fun, and just makes it a great experience. He is great when it comes to lighting, equipment, retouching, you can tell it is truly something he is passionate about and my photos came out great, I couldn't be happier with them!Jeff want's nothing but the best for his clients, and I can't thank him enough for producing quality head shots for me that I can proudly send out to anyone!

Jeff is one the reasons I am freelancing with my top agent choice!I met him at a seminar at Actors Connection where I found his knowledge of head shot photography very insighful and decided to cancel my appointment with another photographer and use him instead.He was professional and made me feel comfortable and confident in the shots we were taking.By far using him was one of the best career moves I have made. As a performer your head shot is everything so choosing the right photographer is crucial.

Jeff has both a great understanding of the technology he uses and what is required in the industry today.Every session has provided me with many great options, great advice on whats current, and what agents and casting directors want to see.It shouldn't be a question whether to go with Jeff, just make sure to move now before he's booked for the next two months.

Jeff has a way of making you feel relaxed and comfortable, and at the same time he's taking multiple shots that market you in the best way possible. I've shot with a few photographers in the city, but Jeff's turned out great, and I'm constantly getting complimented on my headshot. Not only that, but what he charges is definitely the best value for headshots in NYC for the quality you receive. I highly recommend Jeff Mosier. I have great shots that will last me a while, that I feel confident submitting.
