Chicago Headshot Photographer

Hey there! My name is Mike Sansone and I am a Chicago headshot photographer that specializes in actor headshots, corporate headshots and personal branding images. I am extremely passionate about live theatre. I am also an actor, so I understand the necessity for an amazing headshot, and also how hard it is to find. Mall photo studios and your mom’s work friend with a nice camera are easy to come by these days, but none of them will specialize in performer’s headshots, and most importantly will not know the industry like me.
Our studio is primarily geared towards head shots for performers, but since we approach our images from a commercial photography perspective, anyone who needs a professional image to represent themselves can be accommodated.
Your headshot is a representation of YOU..and your commitment to your profession. You wouldn’t trust a policeman if they didnt have a badge..and a casting directors wont trust you without a quality headshot. My background in theatre helps me relate and strike a unique dynamic during shoots that will help you relax and begin showing your true self. This will help us capture interesting expressions that honestly convey who you are. You need to start taking your headshot seriously. I promise to help you take some of the greatest photos you have ever had, with an engaging expression that will help you stand out in a stack of a thousand other pictures.


We have an amazing studio at the Lacuna Artist Lofts building in Pilsen area of Chicago. It is a large, comfortable and modern space that will make you feel like the celebrity or important CEO that you are.


We work with some of the most respected hair and makeup artists in Chicago, as well as the best retouchers and printers in the city. Shooting with us will guarantee that you will be getting the best headshots in the midwest.



We take pride in using the best photographic equipment on the market. We use professional Canon dslrs, Apple computers, Kino Flo lighting gear and Adobe editing softwares. This will ensure the highest quality possible.



Our headshot style is very modern and commercial. The lighting is crisp and clear, and puts all of the focus on the person and their personality. This style of headshot is new to Chicago and will make you stand out in the sea of natural light photographs that currently flood the market.

“The premier choice for Chicago local actors...”


Chicago Actor

I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you. Not knowing the quality, professionalism, and let alone fun that I would have during the shoot, I was incredibly surprised and impressed. I cannot wait to see the final product, and I know that, given the skill, expertise, and love for this craft, your product WILL be the premier choice for Chicago local actors, performers, professionals, and many many more. Once again, I can't say anything more than thank you.



"These are the best headshots I have ever had taken, EVER."


Chicago Actor

Really fantastic working with you Sunday. You skill and knowledge of headshots and photography very much impressed me. These are the best headshots I have ever had taken, EVER. I've been a working actor for 10 yrs, and you knocked it out of the park. AND all while there was a hurricane blowing outside!

Thanks a million,
