Studio Headshot Day

Book Now! Places are limited.

We’re thrilled to invite eligible final year student and graduates to our Studio Headshot Day. If you’re an emerging artist requiring a professional headshot, then book now. Places are limited!

It is essential to have current, high-quality headshots for all artists, especially when you’re starting out. It is a vital part of establishing your arts practice, but when you’re focused on creating, it can be overlooked.

Our Studio Headshot Day will provide you with a selection of professional headshots which are yours to use on your website, resume, biography, auditions, programs, social media and more.

We have engaged Adelaide-based photographer Thomas McCammon for this exciting professional development opportunity.

Thomas is an artist and poet working with video, installation, sound art, analogue mediums, photography, and map-making to unpack themes such as spatial occupation, language and identity, margins, or silence in art.

Preparing for the session
To get the most out of your session, there are a few things you should do ahead of time.

Artists are asked to consider the type of headshots they would like taken. For example, if you’re an actor, perhaps think about the characters you will be auditioning for and what kinds of photos you will need; or if you want a photo for your website, what feel will you be looking for in that photo.

Arrive ten-minutes before your appointment time
To ensure as many artists as possible can participate, the schedule will be strictly adhered to. Please arrive ten-minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. If you arrive late, unfortunately your shooting time will be shortened to ensure the next appointment is able to start on time.

The day will be divided into 25-minute sessions, with artists booking their preferred time online. Please note places are limited, so it’s first in best dressed.

Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines will be adhered to.

Supplying your portraits
You will be provided with high-res files to download, in both colour and black and white (six in total). Preferred images will be selected on the day in consultation with the photographer and provided with basic touching up.

If you would like additional images to be re-touched and provided, you can do so directly with Thomas at your own expense.

Wait list
You will automatically be added to our wait list if the sessions sell out. You will be notified if and when a session becomes available.

Proof of eligibility
Please note that you will be asked to supply a copy of your official academic transcript as proof of your eligibility, at the ticket checkout. If you are unable to do this, your session will be cancelled, and you will be refunded.
