Learn Your Type and Create Your Experience

Paid Actor Photography Experience


Paid Actor has partnered with Ana Taylor of Ana Taylor Photography and Kelly Handevidt of Makeup by Kelly Handevidt. Together we have met with agencies and casting directors to get the lowdown directly from decision-makers in the twin cities talent scene. What have we learned? Talent who have a strong brand image, book gigs.

From these insights, we have designed brand development sessions that include photography, on site makeup & styling, wardrobe consulting and on-site coaching during the photo shoot. The philosophy is simple: Learn and know your type, craft your image, photograph according to your type and image and have fun doing it! 


"First, my Paid Actor Photography Experience exceeded my expectations.  Prior to my shoot, I received a call from Trena, and we progressed through a number of questions that provided me an opportunity to really evaluate what I want to accomplish with my headshots and modeling/acting as a whole.  Trena took the time to actively listen to my questions about the industry, and in return she afforded detailed and insightful answers.  The day of the photo shoot, was outstanding!  Trena, Ana and Kelly were a great team, and made me feel so confident and comfortable and they truly celebrated me as a woman.  I learned a great deal that day from makeup tips to posing, and ultimately being comfortable with ME!

Second, my new headshots have been submitted for opportunities of which I have been booked and completed!  I couldn't be more pleased with the headshots and the confidence my photos portray.  It truly was an "experience" working with Paid Actor Photography and not just a "session".  This "experience" continues to be more than useful in my everyday life...I am so grateful!"

Paid actor photography helped me with my modeling portfolio. Ana, the photographer, was a delight to work with and provided excellent direction. I enjoyed every part of my experience.

"Paid Actor Photography Experience tested me and pushed me to do more during my session. Now whenever I go into any production or audition, I go in knowing those things about me that I didn't know before."
