Shooting with The Starving Artists Project

Shooting with The Starving Artists Project

​This past Wednesday, I got some new headshots taken through The Starving Artists Project. This is such a cool concept.

The SAP, lead by photographer Michael J. Bezjian, produces press portrait sessions and then donates the rest of their day to providing up-and-coming artists with low budget photography. They leverage the power of brands and celebrities to help the careers of Starving Artists.

I love it. The Project is based on a simple, philanthropic pay-it-forward model, where successful folks help support artists that are starting out, or in need of some help. It's a beautiful thing. 

While I was at the shoot, the studio was bustling. I was one of several actors getting headshots done this way, so this didn't have the usual "personal" feel of a headshot session. You had to show up and "bring it" yourself. But there was something exciting about that. 

I did three new looks, and I should get the pictures in about a week or so. Looking forward to seeing how they turned out!
