Actor Headshots Melbourne

Actors get more frequent and better auditions with professional actor headshots. Our Melbourne Headshots studio in East Brunswick is a professional and relaxed environment where Actors can have fun, improvise and be themselves.

Julian Dolman Headshot Photographer


Julian Dolman has been photographing  melbourne actor headshots since 2007 and he truly understands how important it is for an actor to have a great headshot that will get them in the door and further their career.

A headshot session will typically run for 1 hour and up to 2 hours depending on how many changes are needed and can include a pre shoot strategy call to finalise a plan for the shoot. Shots can be taken in the studio or outside using natural settings and most often a combination of both is best for a good range of looks.

Actor Headshots FAQ

Both have their advantages, natural light can be more soft and luminous with the ability create more unique backgrounds and using wide apertures for background blur which creates a more filmic look.

The studio is a controlled environment and therefore much more repeatable once the setup is working. We generally offer both options for Actor Headshot sessions to mix up the looks.

Pricing is based on time shooting and how many shots you want to keep. You can send us an email via the contact page to get the full session and image collection rates.


We are partnered with an Australian company called Pay Advantage for payment plans and we can set it up however best suits your needs i.e  fortnightly or monthly debits starting at $100 per fortnight or $200 per month. 

If budget permits it is a great plan to have makeup and hair professionally done, proper application for camera and use of appropriate products will provide a more polished result in the final shots. 

If you want us to manage a makeup artist booking for you we charge a $100 on top of the artist fee to source and manage the booking . Alternatively we can supply a list of artists to contact and book directly. If you do book an artist you will need to get it done prior to arriving at the shoot.

If you want to bring your own artist to the shoot thats no problem. We recommend you arrive ready to shoot with the base makeup and hair done and then just have the artist there for adjustments. If you want to book the makeup area in the studio to get ready it’s $75 per hour and is subject to availability on the day.

Absolutely! Actors always thrive on working with a good director and this is where Jules operates from. Whether it be some pre shoot advice on clothing and branding or during the shoot on how to pose (without looking like a poser), how to position your head for the best angles and how to engage through the eyes Jules has the tricks to make it easy, fun and repeatable.

We have plenty of 2 hour and also ALL day on street parking around the studio, if you need to unload clothing for the shoot you can pull into the loading bay to upload then park on the street for the shoot.

To book a shoot you can complete the form on this page and we will email you session options with available times and once you are booked we will send an invoice with payment options for either an EFT or online payment. If you require a payment plan to spread out the cost we use pay advantage to setup a recurring direct debit payment for your session.
