About Geoffrey

headshot photo

Geoffrey is an Emmy Award winning cameraman and nationally published photographer. His professional life has encompassed award winning work on both sides of the lens, on the Equity stage, in film and television, and as a writer, producer, and director. He also has extensive experience in media intelligence, branding and marketing. That body of experience is brought to every headshot session, and the results have real, tangible benefit for his client’s careers.

“I approach headshot and portrait photography in Los Angeles from the unique perspective of working on both sides of the lens, experience in both sides of the casting process. I utilize my cinematography, directing and acting experience to create a dynamic, creative environment that inspires the very best in my clients. This is one of the few storytelling mediums where I answer to no one but my client and their team. I proudly serve my clients in an intimate, powerfully connected way, and the results are immediate, quantifiable, and profound. Excellence thrives in such a space.”

 

About the Process

You don’t need new actor headshots, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. You need actor headshot photography that actually improves your odds of getting in the casting office more frequently, so you can do what you were born to do. Fair enough, that’s why we’re here, and that’s what makes us different. I am committed to making a tangible impact on your acting career. I offer career consulting, based on my 35 years in the entertainment industry, entirely independent from headshots. As a headshot client however, I actually want to be of service, and need you to see real-life impactful results from your decision to shoot with me. So I give you a starter-pack of that $150 per hour consulting service at no extra charge. It is, in fact, the catalyst of your headshot shoot with Geoffrey Donne Photography. Call me crazy, but that’s how I roll. I want to empower your professional life. You will also gain access to ongoing and more in-depth career mentoring at special client rates.

If you’re reading this deeply into the website, I’ll venture that you want to understand what we’re doing differently once you decide to shoot with me. My process is about creating a personal career evolution for you, ensuring you leave my studio with not only the best professional tools, but with a clear roadmap of how to utilize them to maximum, perhaps new effect. You may be a well seasoned pro, with a lengthy IMDB, great reps, and years of experience. Excellent, we’ll work from there. How can we create new tools that will meaningfully up your booking opportunities? Empower your representation with career specific imagery that makes their job easier and more lucrative, by clarifying your unique brand and power? You may be a journeyman thespian, having worked a bit, but looking to add some career rocket fuel. Or you might be a relative newcomer to the industry, without representation, or even more challenging, with rep that’s doing nothing for you but letting you think there’s someone on your team. If that’s the case, you’ll leave the studio with a treasure trove of detailed, specific, personalized techniques to save you years of potential missteps, and fast-track your career path to becoming a consistently working actor. So what are we talking about specifically? It depends on your unique situation, but a general overview includes:

  • Detailed, in-person career, casting and brand analysis/consultation

  • shooting of the resulting target, market and show specific looks we choose

  • Techniques to become the CEO of you, career administration methods for acting careers that work

  • Comprehensive breakout of the right next steps on your career journey

  • Concrete, detailed steps to achieving an enduring, long term acting career
