Joe Henson has earned an indisputable reputation as one of the industry’s premiere publicity portrait (headshot) photographers.

His extensive portfolio contains the photographs of over 15,000 clients including the famous faces of Annette Bening, Dick Cavett, Doc Severinsen, Adam “King Ad Rock” Horowitz of the Beastie Boys, Tyler Perry, Selma Blair, Sean Young, John Henson (of course!), Crispin Glover, Charles Grodin, Soupy Sales, Chubby Checker, Diamond Dallas Page, Jackee, Brian Doyle-Murray, Rita Rudner, Lisa Lampanelli, Kim Rhodes, and Missi Pyle.

Joe is equally at home shooting actors, CEOs, writers, children, politicians, performers, families, artists, and world famous celebrities. His commercial work has been exhibited in numerous magazines, including Vogue, “O” The Oprah Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, Soap Opera Digest and the New York Times. Joe’s work has also been featured on book jackets, corporate brochures, DVD covers, billboards and in feature films.

Joe’s Fine Art Photography is currently on display at the Mona Lisa Gallery in Maplewood, NJ. and the Kling Gallery in Montclair, NJ.

“After 25 years of shooting I still feel excited every time I pick up my camera. Meeting my sitters, getting to know them and helping them figure out the essence of their image is a creative collaboration (scroll down using arrows above right)
that always feels fresh and full of promise. I feel a respect for the intimacy of the event and am humbled by the trust placed in me. Portraiture is like bottling lightning. I love what I do.”

This is the second time I’ve used Joe Henson for my headshots and I can’t recommend his work highly enough. He just makes the whole process easy and fun. Plus, for a top photographer, his rates are very reasonable. From the very first phone call, Joe made me feel at ease and confident. I never felt pressured and he was completely transparent about everything, from how the session would go to his rates. Plus, HE has such a great time doing his job, that you can’t help but have fun, too! Joe is keyed into the industry. He knows the look that agents and casting directors are after. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Joe Henson. My new headshots are beautiful!!

Joe is a wonderful person and fantastic photographer... I enjoyed meeting and working with him. He has a great personality and he knows how to make you feel very comfortable to take the best shots for you. I heard he was good but I know now that he is good. He helped me step by step, from the beginning to the end. I have results in my hand... I just got my pictures today in the mail and my pictures are awesome! I can't stop looking at myself... I can't wait to send them out to directors. He really captured who I am... I am very satisfied and feel so blessed to have met him. He is the best better than the rest!!! I also enjoyed working with Kerry-Lou, she is warm, friendly and very sweet. She did a good job with my makeup and hair. Thank you Joe for your gift of capturing the best in me. I am really looking forward to my future. I am so grateful for you and your gifts... Cheers!

A few years ago Joe did my headshot, and this month I went back again for another session. That in itself says a lot, and I've worked principle roles in a lot of SAG and AEA productions over the years. Not only is he a great pleasure to work with, but he has the uncanny ability to bring out in folks their unique and true "essences". That's what's an agent or casting director needs to see so they're calling you in at the right time for the right roles.I recommend this gifted and personable artist to my closest friends and colleagues. Thank you, Joe.

Joe Henson has the ability to find who an actor really is, and capture that personality in a photograph. He is really really good.

We're very pleased with the headshots Joe did for our son, who is a minor and can't write his own review. He completely put him at ease and brought out his best qualities, while showing him how to minimize the negative in front of the camera. Also very pleased with Joe's makeup artist who did his hair and face in a way that made him look perfectly natural -- like he was wearing no makeup at all.

My headshots are amazing. Joe has a great eye and knows how to capture your top qualities and make them "pop" on camera. He simultaneously created a fun, jovial atmosphere, while also getting down to business and producing quality headshots.

My headshots are terrific! Joe has a great eye, sense of humor, and really listened to my ideas and what I wanted to project. He was easy to reach (phone or email) before and after the shoot, and provided a relaxed, fun atmosphere at his studio. Totally satisfied with the experience and final shots!
