“Nils is one of a kind. He has an instinct to be there right at the moment when the feelings start to pour out. You won't notice him being there but you'll tear up when you see his images of you. Un gran hombre!!!"

Diego el Cigala

Hayley Jackowitz

Hi, I'm Nils and I'm a photographer based in the GTA. I specialize in actor headshots in Toronto and the GTA helping you land the gigs and roles you're looking for.

I have shot with grammy-winning celebrities, top models that grace the largest billboards in the world, influencers, and many more. I know even for actors, headshots can be a pretty scary experience so my team and me will always make you feel super comfortable on set to do what we came to do: make you look your best. I am one of the rare Germans with a sense of humor and and you'll have a hard time not smiling when working with me.

Your Shoot Team

All of our photographers have received their 2 Covid-19 vaccines and booster shots where applicable.

We follow all local on provincial government protocols to keep you, our client, safe during the shoot. That means we wash our hands regularly, we wear face covers throughout the shoot, we sanitize our hands in between appointments, and we keep a safe distance from you.


While we strongly recommend getting your vaccines, we do not require you to show proof of vaccination (subject to change based on governmental regulation) and do not question your personal choices. During your headshot session, you will most likely not want to wear a mask unless you work in the medical field.

Sanitization and Supplies

We always sanitize high-traffic areas between each shoot in our studio and try our best to keep the entire space clean and disinfected. We usually have hand sanitizer and spare face masks available if you should require them or have a longer wait time.

We've got a surprise for you! %20 OFF for all bookings before June 15th, 2022.
