Home.

My name is Brendan Ragan.


I cut my creative teeth as an actor. I grew up nestled in the comforting, red velvet chairs of a dark theater, dreaming of tall tales and dramatic storytellers. My work as an actor has taken me all over the United States, to Europe, has earned me a Masters of Fine Arts and a proud place in Actor’s Equity Association.


But as I saw photographers fail time and again with actors and their head shots (and production photos), I grew frustrated with their inability to connect with their subjects and I developed an itch for a different kind of storytelling. As an actor, I realized quickly that the key to a successful portrait isn’t just the perfect lighting and equipment. It’s telling the right story for your audience. It’s not just pointing and shooting. It’s identifying and relating.


Your story is important to me. Let’s tell it.
