I grew up in Macon, GA and graduated from Valdosta State University with a BFA in FINE ART in 1997. In January 2003, after spending many years as a musician (and miserable waiter), I moved to Los Angeles at the ripe old age of 29 to pursue my secret life-long dream of a career in acting. 


Fast-forward almost three years to November 2005-- after many classes and MANY doors slammed in my face, I became a Screen-Actors-Guild member after booking the first of 46 national commercials I would eventually land. Over the years, I've worked my way up from co-star, to guest-star, to top-of-show guest-star, to recurring guest-star, to four network series regulars. I've trained with some of the best teachers and worked alongside some of Hollywood's biggest names in both TV and film on some of the most popular projects from the last 2 decades.

"That's all great Brad, but shut up and tell me why should I trust you with my headshots?"


In 2008, I began taking headshots of actors in Los Angeles, my broke-ass friends at first, then paying clients. In the years to follow, I devoted hours and hours of my time as a private reader in hundreds of casting-director workshops. There I learned from the biggest casting directors and associates in Hollywood as to why they would respond to some headshots, but were unimpressed or even disappointed in others. Essentially, I have a Master's education in understanding how a headshot can make or break an actor's chances. You won't find this with any other photographer. 

I bring my years of working both in front of, and behind the camera, into every session and truly get to know my clients' needs. My headshots are a favorite among some of the top agents and managers in Hollywood. I'm currently living and working in both Hollywood and Atlanta.
