Studio Headshot Day

Helpmann Academy is excited to announce a unique opportunity for South Australian emerging artists to have professional headshots taken.

Having up to date, high-quality headshots is a vital part of establishing an arts career, but when you’re focused on your creative work, this aspect of building a career can easily be overlooked.

Helpmann’s Studio Headshot Day is being offered to provide you with the opportunity to have professional headshots taken for auditioning, working with agencies, biographies, event programs, websites, and marketing.

Your booking includes a photo session with professional photographer Sofia Calado and a selection of high-quality images for your portfolio.


Tuesday 8 October 2019, between 9.30am-5.00pm
Adelaide College of the Arts photography studio (39 Light Square, Adelaide)


You will be provided with three different headshots in both colour and black and white (6 in total). You will be able to select your images on the day in consultation with Sofia. The images will be provided to you after basic editing.

If you would like additional images to be edited and provided, you can arrange this with Sofia at your own expense.


The day will be divided into 25 minute timeslots.

Before your session, please consider the type of headshots you would like taken. For example, if you’re an actor, think about the characters you will be auditioning for and what kinds of photos you will need.

To ensure as many artists as possible can participate, the schedule will be strictly adhered to. You will be asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. If you arrive late, your session will be shortened to ensure the next appointment is able to start on time.

Bookings are essential, a fee of $20 will be charged for each artist, only 1 session per artist is available.

9:30am – 9:55am
