Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to check out my website.

As a photographer that specializes in photographing people of color, I have spent many years traveling the globe as an accomplished entertainer,  (www.JamesEdwardAlexander.com). I'm a proud member of Actors Equity Association and Sag-Aftra. A recipient of the Connecticut Critic Circle award and a Helen Hayes award nominee with over 35 years in the entertainment industry, my experiences on the stage and in front of the camera have given me a unique gift of insight standing BEHIND my lens. 


IT TAKES A SECOND TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION. The eyes are the window to the soul and a working headshot is all about great energy. Your essence. A relaxed, grounded, personable YOU. My sessions are a collaborative process between photographer and subject. The final image evolves organically as the subject (You) relates to the photographer (Me) and the camera (Our friend).


I am a New York based photographer who is conveniently located in the heart of New York's theater district, I'm responsible for some of the best Actor Headshots currently seen in the New York showbiz community. But my abilities don't end there. I have captured the famous and the infamous; the very young and the very mature; the modest and the glamorous.


My creative eye and natural ability to bring the very best out of you will leave you with some of the most memorable images with that "special" something that sets YOU apart from the rest, your essence and personality coming through, the best YOU.
