Our Story

Headshot Truck Team | Launched in 2014, our mission was to take a modern approach to headshots by providing actors with great headshots that pop on screen, at affordable prices, with the convenience of a mobile studio.

Ever since The Headshot Truck strives to update our services to meet the needs of the modern actor and business professional. Headshots are not just for actor submissions anymore. They have become photo content that can be used for multiple purposes including self-promotion and marketing. That is why in addition to the headshots we also shoot more candid imagery that can be used for multiple purposes.

The Truck

Our Headshot Truck was originally a Bimbo bread truck, which is why we call her “Bimbo.” We purchased her in 2014 after raising about $20,000 through a Kickstarter campaign, which allowed us to purchase and retrofit the truck into the beauty you see today!

We painted the truck pink for two reasons: Pink is eye-catching so it can be seen on the road and parked so it is easy to find. Also, we realized that if we were going to ask people to come aboard a truck with no windows to take pictures we needed to make it about the least intimidating color we could think of!


NoHo Studio

In addition to our actual Headshot Truck we have a brick-and-mortar studio in the NoHo Arts District in North Hollywood. Our studio is centrally located between major freeways and is also a great home base to park our truck. We started shooting out of the studio during COVID, but it has become a great location because it has allowed us to not only shoot our signature studio looks, but also shoot outside with natural light. We have some great locations around the studio to get amazing theatrical looks without having to leave the grounds.
