Headshot coach and model, TOM BURKE

Tom Burke coached me through my last headshot session. He helped put me at ease, break old habits, and got me into a zone where I was doing my best work in front of the camera. I was amazed at how much he inspired me to go even farther. My agents and casting directors are finally getting me, because Tom helped me bring what is “unique and genuine about me” out in my pictures. If you get the chance to work with Tom Burke, do it.
