    Hi Susan,
    Hope you are well.

    Been having a tough time choosing pictures… but I’ve narrowed it down to 6 so far – I’ve been setting up meetings, showing the proofs, etc.

    Everyone I show them to loves them all – it’s funny because everyone gets fed up trying to pick just a few… they are all so unique and captivating.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Susan,
    I have a good friend out in LA who’s starting his acting career out there.

    He got his headshots done in NY by __________about a year and a half ago (around the same time I came to see you). Anyway, he’s not thrilled with the outcome and is in the process of selecting an LA photographer to get new headshots. I respect your work a lot and think you have a great outlook on capturing great headshots. My friend can get a little tense when it comes to situations like this and I’m trying my best to calm him down by finding a photographer that has a nice ease about him/her. Since I enjoyed my session with you so much I thought you would be the perfect place to go for a solution.

    I really appreciate any amount of help you can give (and I’m sure T. would appreciate it as well).

    Thanks a million!

    And I’m so glad I originally shot with you so I don’t have to go through this whole stressful process again.

    Much love,

    Hi Susan!
    I received the proofs on Saturday and they are absolutely wonderful. More than I could have expected.

    Thank you so much!

    It’s so hard to choose one!

    Thank you for marking them though, it is such a help, I wouldn’t have known where to begin!

    Anyway, I am beyond pleased with them and cannot thank you enough.

  • 8-2012 HR

    WOW Susan!!
    They really are incredible! I am especially loving the red tank top ones, and the black tank ones. Now to choose which one! So great to have so many options pulling me. yeahhhhhhh!!!

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful headshot experience.

    Best wishes to you, I am recommending you at every encounter!

    I ended up getting a part on that new TV show I was telling you about, It will be on NBC this January so keep an eye out for it.

    I met with the casting director for a new NBC show yesterday and she LOVED my headshot :)

    Hey Susan,
    What can I say? The photos are terrific, just superb.

    You have captured me in a way that nobody has before.

    They are wonderful.

    BACKSTAGE.COM Message Boards: Headshot
    Susan Shacter just did my shots and I am so happy because I know I have found my headshot photographer for life. Go to www.susanshacter.com/headshots first. Then go to her main site www.susanshacter.com to see celebrity shots and stuff. She spent 5 hours photographing me. She’s the first photographer I ever used who really seemed to be trying to get the best shots possible (instead of rushing me along with a series of poses and angles they use on everyone). She really took the time to study MY face and do what was best for ME. I was drawn to her because all the people in her shots always look like they are intelligent and have some credibility. Cheesy shots can be so embarrassing when you are trying to get noticed for a project you respect.

    Hi Susan:
    Thank you again for the wonderful experience of shooting with you. You calmed my nerves and made me feel beautiful, so for that I am grateful!

    I will highly recommend your services to my fellow actors.


  • 8-2012 JW

    Thanks for sending that along, it’s beautiful.

    I just did another photo shoot in Boston for my comp cards (which my agency here wants me to do to get catalogue work) and it was a nightmare. I knew you were great at what you do, but I had no idea just how far above and beyond most other photographers you are.

    Just wanted to say thanks again, and I hope you’re well.


  • 8-2012 MC

    I just finished looking through the shots for the first time with a loupe. They are beautiful!

    And in a good bunch of them, you even managed to coax your goofy subject into not looking so terrifically goofy! :)

    Thank you so much.

  • 8-2012 PA

    Hi Susan,
    I just finished a student film yesterday, and I have to pass on a compliment to you… the director told me that when he saw my headshot, it was the look he was searching for, and was nervous because so many times people come in and look nothing like their headshot. He was really excited to see that I looked just like the headshot.

    Thank you so much!

    I hope you are really well, and keep in touch if you can!

  • 8-2012 LH

    Thank you again for a wonderful session and for all of the gorgeous photos.

    I love them and I’ve received so many compliments on them.

    I’m very excited to finally use them!


  • 8-2012 MD

    I cannot thank you enough for doing this for me and for all the advice, it’s not everyday that you run into someone willing to help out people just beginning in this business.

    I really appreciate you putting your time into it for me.

    Thanks for everything once again.

  • 8-2012 N

    Dear Susan
    Just a quick note to say thank you for my beautiful head shots – it was a pleasure to share the process with you.

    Let’s meet for a coffee soon.


  • 8-2012 NC

    Hi Susan,
    I hope this e-mail finds you enjoying your fall. I am really loving Russia and the program at MXAT is incredible.

    First of all, thank you so much for sending the pictures to my Mom.

    WOW! I absolutely ADORE them. Really.

    At the risk of sounding a bit egotistical, I didn’t know that I could ever have a photograph of me that looked that good.

    Thank you for taking such gorgeous photos.

    Your expertise is so apparent in the headshots and I can’t wait to start bringing them to auditions in the city.

    Thank you so much for everything, Susan, and I look forward to being in contact with you soon.

    All my best,

  • 8-2012 AF

    Dear Susan,
    Thank you for getting the pictures to me so fast. They are beautiful. You have such a great way of capturing people’s personalities in a very simple clean way.

    My mom should be calling you about which ones to make into prints.

    I hope you’re well; I had a great time shooting with you.

    Take care,

  • 8-2012 SR

    Susan – Finally!
    Sorry it has been so long. Thank you again for the shots – your work is stunning and I have been recommending you to everyone.

    It was so lovely meeting you and I hope that our paths will cross again!


  • 8-2012 MC

    Hi, there! Everyone is sending me wonderful comments about the beautiful pictures you took of me. I really love them, and I thank you again not only for your excellent photography but also for eliciting what you did from me in the photos. You’re wonderful!


  • 8-2012 DA

    Dear Susan,
    Happy Holidays! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year!

    I have recently started freelancing for an agent and a manager, both of them have absolutely loved your pictures!

    Thank you for giving me the confidence that I have the best headshots on both coasts!

    I hope you have a great year.

    Best wishes,

  • 8-2012 DS

    Hey Susan,
    I got the proofs on Thursday and they look fantastic! Thank you again for all your hard work getting those together. I could not have asked for better headshots! I’ll be in touch to let you know which ones I’ll want to touch up – but in the meantime, hat’s off on a job well done. These will serve me for years to come. Beautiful work.


  • 8-2012 L

    Hi Susan,
    Sorry for the delay – I was out of town working – but I’ll get those two headshots to you asap!

    Thanks again. I get tons of compliments on them, and I really love them, feel so good about them.

    Hope you are well.


  • 8-2012 EM

    My name is Erin. My friend C.K. had her headshots taken by you a couple of years ago. She is doing wonderfully. She lives in LA now. Whenever she sends in her headshot she always gets called in. Her pictures alone would have sold me but the fact that she really enjoyed the whole process, quite frankly, sealed the deal. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Take care,

  • 8-2012 SF

    Hi Susan!
    I hope you’re doing well.

    I just wanted to let you know that the CMU website is finally up and running.

    All of the photos you took of my classmates and me look absolutely gorgeous.

    I get so many compliments on my shots – I am talking you up around Pittsburgh like it’s my job.

    Have a lovely Sunday!
