I'm glad you made it to my site!

Photography isn't just my preferred creative outlet, it's my favorite way to help people. I can't tell you the satisfaction I get when actors come to me for headshots and I get to watch their careers take off with my images. Or when someone comes to me for a shot for their Linkedin profile and that shot helps them get in the door for a new job. That's such a great feeling! I truly love what I do.

About me? I've lived all over the world all my life in places like Paris, Singapore, India, Chicago, Washington DC, Maryland, Los Angeles, New York and now Boston. I'm proud to say I went backpacking in India three times in my 20s and actually I would say that my journeys in India did wonders for my photography and my outlook on life, because it taught me how to see bigger, to see beyond the obvious. And that's what I think I do well in my work, I'm able to reveal the underlying truth of my subjects, the beauty beneath the surface, which creates images that lend to a more powerful connection with the viewer.

WGBH Best of Boston A-List 2016 

Professional headshot photographer Erica Derrickson is widely considered one of Boston’s best photographers for acting headshots, modeling portfolio images and professional corporate headshots. With a fresh and clean style that reveal her subjects at their best, Erica prides herself on delivering Boston headshots that help its actors, models and businesses shine.

"Whether we’re talking about a casting director seeing a professional acting headshot in consideration for an audition or a potential employer seeing our Linkedin profile pic, what is irrefutable is that people today are making decisions about us based off the photo we use to represent ourselves online. That’s why we owe it to ourselves to put our best face forward and invest in professional headshots, because this is our success we’re talking about, and if that's not worth it I don't know what is."
