The Truck Team:
This southern gentleman joined The Headshot Truck after years of working for other photographers and freelancing in some pretty fantastic locations, like Hawaii, Alaska, and... Delaware. Drew left his home in rainy Seattle for sunny Los Angeles and has been with the Truck ever since. More than anything else except maybe photography, Drew enjoys the outdoors. Quick with a joke and a helping hand, Drew is truly the best person you will ever meet.
This is Jon. Since Jon can't remember interesting things about himself on the spot, he's made a list: he was once quarantined by the CDC; has been struck by lightning (in a car) twice; and taught himself photography in middle school. His work has been featured in Florence, Italy, on billboards in Times Square, and screened internationally. After securing his Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University's Film School, Jon figured, "Ehh, why not?" and he drove the 3,000+ miles to make his new home in equally-as-sunny, not-as-humid, Los Angeles.
Ashley J. is a Cali girl at heart. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she began shooting photos in high school and has never. stopped. since. She's a fun and upbeat photographer that recently shot for the Los Angeles Clippers. Her bright and sunny personality will put you at ease and give you an awesome photo experience!
Marisa was born and raised on the East Coast. After attending school for art in Boston, she received a digital camera for graduation and soon after began her career as a photographer. Now based in Brooklyn, Marisa is known for her fun personality and ability to make anyone comfortable in any situation. When she's not taking photos, she's taking her dog Pooka on long walks, soulcycling, sunbathing, playing hockey or shopping (even when she knows she shouldn't be).
Kelly comes from the dark and rainy island of Scotland. She moved to Los Angeles because her sister told her to (and to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts). Having a love for all things camera (she is, in fact, the Selfie Queen), she picked up the camera as not only a photographer, but for her own production company, ToeNale Productions. She is so excited to create some magic with you - and yes, if you have the urge to shout "Donkey," to her face, she won't be offended. Well, not entirely offended...
Vanessa, Make-Up supervisor
Vanessa started as an actress but knew she also wanted to be a makeup artist when she was cast in a series of shampoo commercials and found herself mercilessly hounding the makeup artist about every move he made until he finally sat down and showed her exactly what he was doing. A second career was born and she’s been powdering noses ever since! She’s originally from Philadelphia; loves cheese steaks; and is adamantly pro-lip-gloss-choice.
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Aliy always believed that there was sunshine in her blood so the move to Los Angeles was a natural one. She has been fascinated by make up since she could first get her hands on it and loves experimenting with all the ways it bring out a person's natural beauty. Encouraged by her Mother, who was also a make up artist, Aliy began her official training in the art of make up and finds great joy in helping other look their best.
A saucy lady from Arizona’s wild west, Kristin has always loved makeup and its magical qualities. Certain makeup combinations often make her feel like she is a scientist/wizard… or maybe Leonardo Da Vinci? Make-up artist by day and fire dancer by night, Kristin enjoys helping people feel confident while looking good, and understands that that usually means just helping people look like themselves.
The Office Team:
Dani, Operations/Scheduling Manager
Dani is a sweet yet sassy Chicago native who enjoys the outdoors and music festivals. Having been a classically trained professional singer starting from the age of 11, Dani performed all throughout Europe and at Carnegie Hall. Her music career turned her onto acting where she has been working consistently in television, film, voice over and new media. She adores animals and is an equestrian in her spare time.
Aimee, Social Media + Sales
Even though she grew up IN New Mexico, Aimee thought they were slinging blue rock candy on Breaking Bad. She moved to Los Angeles at the ripe age of 19 to pursue her acting career. It continues to flourish, along with her wit. Her first job in LA was essentially doing the Sham-Wow presentation in every Sears within a 75 mile radius... and a sales animal was born. Her favorite things include green chili, her dog Bonnie, Harry Potter and macaroni and cheese.
Brogan, Project Manager / Executive Assistant
Brogan wants to live in a world where all refrigerators dispense freshly grated parmesan cheese. Born and raised in Ohio, Brogan's formative years were spent surrounded by music and the arts, including too many live musical theater performances to count. At 15, she made the trek to Hollywood where her midwestern charm and vivacious personality led her to meet nearly all the who's who of teen Hollywood. From that, a self made social media master was born.
Despite having grown up on the stage, Will has always been a born entrepreneur. After spending an unholy amount of money on an MFA, he’s recently become focused on helping other actors attain their goals for a lot less. Right before teaming up with Adam, Will launched a design-your-own cookie company while raising his puppy, Potus. When he’s not fulfilling his duties as a co-founder of The Headshot Truck, Will can usually be found within close proximity of a bottle of diet Snapple.
Adam, Creative Director
Oops!… he did it again. Specializing in celebrity portraits and children’s fashion for the last 8 years just wasn’t enough. Adam is a co-founder of The Headshot Truck and is stoked to shoot s’more rad peeps. After acting for 20 years, Adam truly understands how mundane headshot shoots can be and tries to create the most comfy, fun experience for his clients. Born and raised in SoCal, he’s the kind of guy that says ‘dude’ and ‘awesome’ a lot. If his laugh doesn’t make you laugh, you’re not a real human being.
Brian, Sales Director
Brian grew up the son of an artist and entrepreneur. Surprise, surprise the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Brian has been an actor and producer in LA for over 10 years after leaving the cold behind in the Midwest. He has created sales and marketing teams for several companies, from start-ups to large corporations and brings his outside-the-box approach to The Headshot Truck. He can also be found fly fishing in Montana and drinking bourbon in his spare time.
Zac, Technical Director
Suffering a lifelong psychological affliction forcing him to use at least one screwdriver on any broken object, push every button within arms length, and to actually read the instruction manual, Zac has developed a habit for making stuff work. After a sojourn to Nashvegas to get a diploma and a discovery that, like many native Floridians, he requires sunlight 12 months of the year co-founder Zac relocated to SoCal where the photo shoots are as abundant as the UV rays.
Home of Mounties… the Maple Leafs… and way too much snow, Liese is a stereotypically polite Canadian. In 2008, she received a diploma in Photography from the Granton Institute of Technology in Toronto. Four years later, she’s expanded her business into the retouching field (making her digital footprint, so to speak). Liese can usually be seen walking her Pug around the waterfront or enjoying a glass of Chardonnay at the local pub, eh!
