Robert Harrington Studios
About this pro
A professional photographer who started in film, my work is a blend of traditional, photojournalism, and creative light. On the corporate side, I've worked for small and large companies alike, creating looks and helping them brand their image with their headshots. I've worked with models from Ford, Elite, Playboy, MSA, Posh, Anomaly, Electrastar, Compass, and many other agencies, so I know what works and what models need. My actors have come from Broadway and Television, and many of my actor headshots have gotten my clients work, most recently a part in Mathilda on Broadway. I love the amazing people that I meet and get to work with. Between my clients, stylists, freelance models for my workshops, my assistants, second shooters and everyone else involved, it is the most satisfying job I've ever had.

I have quite a few actors who have gotten big jobs on CSI, SVU, on and off broadway, and a movie deal with Martin Scorcese as director.

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?If you are looking for a headshot, portrait, or editorial photographer, do your research. Headshots are a fantastic way to express who you are in just one photograph. Before coming to a shoot, choose a look you like and practice in front of a mirror. It sounds crazy, but you'll get great results with some posing practice. Also bring a few different tops and jackets. Bring what you love or love yourself wearing. If you are the least bit uncomfortable, you'll look that way in your images. Come with an open mind, prepare to have fun, and just roll with the experience. You'll get great images, I guarantee it.
