Hey, I'm Martin Bentsen, and I'd love to shoot your photos. I'm the guy who's going to make your headshot session seem like just hanging out on a leisurely afternoon. For you, at least. On my end, I'll be working my butt off getting you some amazing headshots. I'll direct you, position you, and focus on tiny minute things on your face so we can coax out the perfect expression that shows your personality, because that's what my headshots are about: You. I've literally shot over a thousand headshot clients since 2009 when I started. I graduated from NYU with a degree in Film, and am currently in production on my second feature-length film. I'll finish up by saying that some of my photography has been featured in Dime Magazine, the Canarsie Courier, Panache Privee, and Black Tie Magazine. And I have authored a book called "Actor Self-Promotion," which you may be interested in checking out if you're an actor. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you!

Why Choose City Headshots?
Instant turnaround. You'll get all the photos in high-res on a disk when you leave, so there's no wait time!
Comfort. Going on a shoot with me is like just hanging out. You'll get amazing shots but I'll be making you laugh and we'll be joking around every step along the way. Making you comfortable and happy is my number one priority during the shoot, because that's the only way to ensure you get top-of-the-line shots.
Filmmaking background. Most headshot photographers used to be actors. That's great, except they never worked as casting directors! As someone who's made many shorts and casted for two features, I know exactly what goes through the mind of a casting director looking through a thousand headshots. And I know how to make your headshot a winner.
