Melbourne Actor Headshots.
How do you get headshots that land your next acting job?
At Julia Nance Portraits, you’ll get actor headshots that you and the casting director will love.
Does getting new headshots lie somewhere between being a tiresome chore and being a downright nightmare?
Don’t stress. It’s not just you. With the constant upkeep needed, getting the right headshot is stressful.
There aren’t too many professions that have such a direct correlation between getting a good photo taken and getting employed, but a bad acting headshot can be the difference between you getting and not getting a job.
And to make things even more difficult, taking the perfect headshot is kinda like spinning a dozen plates at once.
You want a headshot that shows your personality, while at the same time, properly portraying you as a certain ‘type’ to a casting director. You also need to stand out from the crowd.
How Do You Make Your Headshot Stand Out?
There are hundreds of actor headshots for every casting call, and the competition is getting stronger and stronger every year. Making sure that you stand out is key.
Because, at the end of it all, that is why you want great headshots.
You want to stand out… but more importantly, you want that next job.
To get the perfect headshot that’ll get you more acting jobs, you need a professional who cares about their craft and more importantly, about you; you don’t want to be rushed through the process – after all, you’ll want to be relaxed during your shoot so you can get the best photos possible.
Like Veronika, who visited my studio in 2018. After working together on refreshing her actor headshots, Veronika was able to not only get more work, she really enjoyed the process of getting her headshots taken.
We stop at no lengths to get your perfect headshot
At the Julia Nance Portraits studio in Lilydale, Melbourne, you can go at your own pace. You’ll find a relaxed atmosphere that aims to make you comfortable; Taking your successful headshot is my number one priority.
You don’t need to worry about any of the technical stuff either. I’m a qualified photographer, with a Bachelor of Photography degree from RMIT University, and I have over 8 years of experience with studio portraiture (and even more behind a camera in general).
You’re probably wondering what I mean when I say you’re my number one priority. Well, that means…
- No outfit limits
- No strict time limits
- Time to explore as many different moods and characters as you need
- On the spot photo reviews
- A combination of indoor and outdoor settings
- A comprehensive pre-shoot guide so you can fully prepare
- Professional editing that makes sure you still look like you, and not some wax model
In fact, I have helped some performers who were in positions just like what you’re in, and being able to help them has been incredible:
Book in your session today and make the investment in yourself and your craft. Remember, I work with you until you’re satisfied.

Julia is an expert at her craft - it has been an absolute pleasure to work together with Julia Nance on a jewellery photoshoot. She is professional, has great knowledge and skill with photography and post production, and is very warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend her both for her art photography and her portraiture. Wishing you all the best Julia!

Julia is always so lovely to work with! She is friendly, relaxed, and makes the process so easy. Her studio is so lovely and relaxing, with views of rolling hills and beautiful music playing. Her headshots are so beautiful and natural, they're the best I've had. I've been to her twice and will definitely be going again!

Super friendly and professional! Had a really great experience having headshots done by Julia
From the moment we met Julia, she made my daughter feel at ease during her photoshoot. Images were amazing and excellent quality! I would highly recommend Julia for portraits.

I thoroughly enjoyed this photoshoot. Very relaxed environment. Julia was quick & easy to take directions from. Im thrilled my final prints which have pulled in more work.
Julia is wonderful! She was engaged by my business to take corporate head shots and branding photos. She put everyone at ease and the photo quality is amazing!! Thanks Julia!!
Joy - Director at True Blue Migration
Great service, very happy with the results and would highly recommend to others.
Had the privilege of having my portrait taken by Julia. She has a fantastic studio that's recently been done up in Lilydale which was a great space to get creative in - I love bright colours, and enjoyed playing around with her various backdrops. Julia was a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to my next session!
Thanks to Julia Nance Portraits. Finally someone took a great headshot and I can say that Julia has done a fantastic job !!

Sharee, Owner at Wellness & Co
Julia is very professional and has the ability to capture great photos.
Julia Nance Portraits was the single best experience I have had infront of a camera. I have avoided getting my headshots taken for years, often taking my own or using stock photos on my website. However Julia set me up with some amazing shots which have already generated more work!
Vince Massara, Owner of The Content Friends
Julia is such a cool person to work with, while simultaneously producing beautifully executed photographic work. I felt calm and really taken care of in her workspace. Her shots will be used by my business for a long time to come!

I would give 10 stars if I could. Julia is a thorough professional with a remarkable ability to pay attention to details. She made me feel comfortable and allowed me more than enough time to try and perfect various angles. Her studio location is quite picturesque, ideal for outdoor photoshoot and my dog enjoyed playing in the outdoors too. Indoor studio is suited for professional shots. She took numerous shots and showed me the results to select. She advised me on how to improve my posture and get the right expression for the camera. If you are camera shy, don't worry she will make you relax. We also tried different outfits during the shoot. She tries to understand the client by knowing more about them and their needs through a questionnaire. I found that she was able to produce the exact results that I was looking for with a quick turnaround time. I got the final product within two days of the shoot. All in all, an outstanding experience. 10 stars.
H - Senior Accountant
I was in need of a professional head shot. I googled search for someone who gave the right vibe and had diverse work. Turned out Julia was 1.5 hours away. 100% worth the trip. Julia listened to me - I asked for shots that make me look relaxed, soft and approachable. She delivered. She also has great expertise and knew that the slightest changes to hair, outfit and jewellery can make all the difference. She took her time, did not pressure me and turned to initial PDF's around in a matter of hours. The landscape around her studio is magnificent for outdoor shots. I am thrilled and will use her again when I update.

Thank you so much for the photos and the shooting. It was super nice and easy to work with you and the photos are amazing! I don’t think I have ever had that good pictures of myself!
Julia is very professional, friendly and warm. My son felt so comfortable having his photos taken for his first photo shoot and really enjoyed it too 🙂 The photos are amazing! Thanks Julia!
Jane, Zed's mother.
Not only does Julia provide top notch photos, but a unique and individualised approach to the shoot. Julia makes the process of getting headshots fun, relaxed, and easy, which only adds to the quality of the photos she takes. She has a keen eye and her touch ups on the final products are perfect!
I visited Julia's studio a few weeks ago for some headshots. Straight away she made me feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. She understood the style I was going for, and I am wrapped with the photos! Julia is a very creative and talented photographer, and just a lovely person all together, I 100% recommend her!
