Posing Heroes

Established artists are our Posing Heroes and we invite them to attend our Getty Images press portrait sessions.  By participating, Posing Heroes help struggling artists to get the photography they need for their careers.

We offer struggling artists head shots, flash drives for photo storage, Uber for transportation and mentor videos at no charge. We have an honor system that allows donations to come from only those who can afford it.

As this is a press event, Posing Heroes may not make a donation.

As a Posing Hero you will be attending a press portrait photo shoot by Getty Senior Photographer Michael Bezjian.  Sessions are designed to give the celebrities alternative press images that differ from the standard “red carpet” photos.  Portraits lend themselves to better editorial.

Artists and/or their representatives may approve images prior to posting to Getty Images/Wireimage and may use the images for there publicity needs.  We provide hair, makeup and styling as needed, along with a style closet and props.

The amount of time spent at the studio and the number of looks taken is entirely up to the artist, those who need multiple looks or want to satay to talk to the new artists are welcome as well as those who like to get in and out as quickly as possible.

We look forward to hearing form you and thank you for your support!
