YOUR ACTING HEADSHOT HAS TO GRAB A CASTING DIRECTOR’S ATTENTION.
I MAKE HEADSHOTS THAT STOP THE SCROLL.

As an actor, your headshots are one of your most important marketing tools. This is true whether you are submitting your 8×10, a digital headshot, for your personal website, and even for making sure your social media branding is firing at 100%. You are your brand. Whatever images you choose to show casting directors, or to represent your personal/digital branding is important. During our session, I will coach you the entire time to draw out honest reactions from you. We will work together to make images that grab people’s attention at a glance.

He is hands-down the BEST headshot photographer I've ever worked with and is a true gem for the Louisville area. No matter the reason for your headshots, creative or professional, call this man. He'll have you rolling on the floor with laughter during your entire shoot, and will coach out expressions you didn't even know you could make. He makes the whole process painless and stress-free. I truly can't recommend him enough.

When booking Ben Marcum, get ready to have fun and be amazed with the results! It's such a personal experience, and he makes you feel like the center of his attention. His partnership with terrific ladies at The Beauty Patrol only further adds to the professional touches he has to offer.

I have heard so many good things from friends before booking my first headshot session with Ben, and turns out the words were TRUE! The whole experience was indeed fantastic! Ben was very professional, very dedicated, and very fun to work with. His good personality and sense of humor make you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. And his interpersonal skills can activate the genuine reaction of you, thus produce genuine headshots.

Ben Marcum Photography has the highest quality headshots in Louisville! I was so impressed with how the makeup and lighting came together to produce such a beautiful and NATURAL shot! Ben and Pam (the lovely makeup artist I worked with) truly take care of their clients! They were so accommodating, fun to work with, and super talented! I left the studio with ten times as many options as I expected. During the photo shoot, Ben gives excellent direction on how to produce the best image and provides feedback on the spot to make sure you get the most out of your time there. I would recommend Ben Marcum to anybody! It was such a pleasure to work with him!
