Great headshots get your foot in the door

Mix that with gorgeous lighting and a little retouching magic, and you walk away having nailed the best headshot of your life. The one that gets you noticed.

Most of us don't love being in front of a camera. I developed YOFA: the Yoga of Facial Appearance to help you overcome your fears and feel in control of your appearance. I also give you simple breathing techniques and naturall induced bursts of laughter to help you relax and have fun so you can shine.

Headshot Testimonials


I would definitely recommend working with Derek. Great, comfortable studio and he makes you feel right at home. Quick and responsive over email. Look no further if you need a headshot done in Brooklyn for a reasonable price.

Being photographed typically makes me tense and nervous but Derek made the experience easy and enjoyable. He really listened and understood the kind of photos I was looking for and made sure I got what I wanted!

I LOVE Derek’s work. He has such a welcoming and relaxed manner and the studio is cheerful and unpretentious on the first floor of a homey brownstone. I’m going back!
