When does a celebrity need a headshot?

When he's in NYC promoting a movie and his LA manager says, "We'd like you to get some headshots and use Jordan Matter. And make sure to bring him a soy latte from Joe Coffee!" Okay, I made up the part about the coffee, but the rest is true. Here are a few images from yesterday's session with James Pickens, star of ABC's Grey's Anatomy. He's one of the coolest people I've worked with.

You can see more of my headshots on my website by clicking here.

Jordan Matter on the Nightly News!

I was a guest on "The Nightly News with Chuck Scarborough". He brought me on to discuss my "Dancers Among Us" series, which has recently been featured on the prestigious Photo District News website, NBC New York, The Gothamist, and La Repubblica. He also gave me an opportunity to dish out some advice to young photographers. Wasn't I once a young photographer too? When did that change?
