Best Perth Headshot Photographers

Written by on | Perth Acting Resources

Acting resources in Perth and most of Western Australia can be hard to come by. We all need to know where to go to find the best tools for our actors toolkit. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, we all need a good headshot. For those of us based in the West, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best headshot photographers in Perth, in no particular order.

Rebecca Hitch Photography

As someone who’s been on both sides of the camera, Bec knows exactly what it feels like to get your headshots done. Rebecca Hitch Photography travels to three different locations in Australia; Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth so keep an eye out for when she’ll be out West. Rebecca always produces naturalistic headshots and always makes any client she’s working with feel comfortable in front of the camera. A number of us at StageMilk have worked with Rebecca before and can’t recommend her enough.

– $450 for a 1.5 hour outdoor natural light shoot
– Unlimited looks (within the time frame)
– All shots uploaded to an online gallery within a week after the shoot.
– 2 retouched high resolution colour shots
– Additional retouches are $30 each

Here’s an example of Rebecca’s work with Jake form the team!

Deanna Whyte

Deanna is another headshot photographer who works as an actor herself, and has done for about 20 years. Deanna believes that ‘a great actor’s headshot is relaxed, natural, and full of personality. The more comfortable you are, the more of you we’ll capture in your photos’. Deanna is based in Perth so should be available year round. Sadly there isn’t much information about prices or products of the headshot service on Deanna’s website, but you can reach out to her through her website that we’ve linked to above.

Headshot sessions cost $520. They include an hour shoot time, online proof gallery and 5 final images. Extra images are available for $60 per image. Shoots will be outdoors and proofs will be delivered within 2 weeks of the shoot date, and finals within 1 week of image selection.

Chris Huzzard

Chris has a long career as a photographer that has taken him all over the world. Lucky for us he’s now based in Perth and is available for all of your headshot needs. There isn’t much information about how the headshot service works on his website but similarly to Deanna Whyte you can reach out to him through his website that we’ve linked above. From what we know the reviews for Chris’ work seem to be entirely positive and highly regarded.

Tips for Getting Headshots in Perth

If you’re getting these shots in the summer, as many of us do for the new year, try to wear light clothes that are breathable and you won’t be sweating in too much. On top of that bring some napkins to dab your forehead with for when you do inevitably work up a sweat just by walking from your car into a building.

Be you! You should always aim to look like yourself (on a good hair day). Trying to look like anyone but yourself through your clothing, hairstyle, and vibe will always produce a disingenuous headshot. So wear clothes that feel like you in colours that suit, do your hair the best you can and try to just relax and have fun! This will produce a headshot that screams you!

Don’t ever feel like you have to be perfectly still and pose for your shots. Your headshot photographer is going to want you to be as relaxed and comfortable as you can be. So open up, have a yarn and get to know them! Your smile will come through when you inevitably crack a joke or have one cracked on you.
