My daughter has done three shoots now with Erica of EricasEye and every time we are amazed by the captures she makes.  Erica makes the sessions fun and puts her at ease. She knows just how to capture her and brings out her best features.  My daughter uses her headshots for both modeling and acting - and we were told by several casting directors that her headshots stood out. Erica's headshots definitely have given her some advantages, and helped book jobs in cities like Boston and NY.  I highly recommend EricasEye for quality headshots!

-Carla V.


Erica's headshots are by far the best! She is so much fun to work with and has such great energy. Within 2 weeks of using my new headshots I got picked up by a talent manager in NY/LA. If you want to take your career to the next level, go get your headshots by Ericaseye!

-Mikaela H.


My colleague and I just got our professional head shots done with Erica last week, and she was amazing to work with! She has an awesome studio in the Seaport area, and she is full of energy with great indoor/outdoor shot ideas! I would highly recommend Erica for your professional headshots!

-Kristine F.


Before hearing about Erica, I had been looking for a little bit to re shoot my professional head shots. I kept hearing about this Boston headshot photographer that was the best. I looked into her work and was blown away. Hiring her was a no brainier. The headshots came out amazing and couldn't have asked for more. My confidence is so high while sending them out. I am already getting much interest from significant projects.

-Scott S.


I highly recommend Erica for your next headshots.  She has done my two sons headshots and I go back to her again and again as she has taken the best pictures of them.  I have gotten many compliments on the pictures.  She has a great eye for color and is able to get the best shots.  She makes you feel at home and has a very fast turn around time.

-Christine T.


I used Erica to shoot some headshots for my LinkedIn profile as I began my job hunt last year. She made the process relaxed, easy, and fun, with the end result that she captured my personality as well as my face. The process, from booking to final image, was very easy, and I appreciated that she sent my final image in several formats for web, high-res, and so on. I can't recommend Erica highly enough for all your headshot photography needs!

-Emily A.


Erica does a beautiful job with head shots, and works really well with kids. We have been fortunate to be able to book her twice and treasure the results. Highly recommended!

-Natasha C.


As a New England actor looking to get my acting headshot done, I figured Boston would be the place where the best photographers would be. I was correct. The acting headshots I got from Erica are fantastic! I actually spent about 2 hours on Google looking at a bunch of different headshot photographers and studios. I just googled "acting headshots Boston" and sifted through 3 pages of results and Erica's Eye appealed to me the most I think because of her more welcoming & personalized style of dealing with people and NOT treating you like just another number or payment like some of the major corporate style studios. After the shoot I was supposed to pick out 2 of all the better shots with her and those would be the 2 I got back. Guess what though?! I got 3 back because Erica actually cared enough to put in the extra work for something I didn't pay for nor expected of her because she thought it was that good and could help me with my career. All she asked was that I put them to good use and that seeing me succeed was the best reward! It was actually an honor to have had the opportunity to meet Erica and work with her on capturing not just simple photos of me but helping me to bring out my true self and showcase my unique individual potential with high quality photographs for applying to acting auditions/jobs; as well as some great profile pictures to show off for my social media platforms as an added plus!

-Shawn S.


It has been over 16 years since I have had professional photographs.  I went to Erica because I saw her work online for other actors, artists and her photographs from India online.  I was truly impressed with her talent and skill to capture the "natural essence" of her subjects and bring their personalities to life.  Everyone is unique and original!  Before my photo session, Erica sent me some valuable information on how to relax on camera, what wardrobe to bring to a photo shoot and information to read about photo shoots. Erica is a gifted photographer and knows how to bring her subjects to life -- bring out their special qualities, beauty and personalities.  She is able to capture real moments through their eyes.  She knows what color schemes work for her clients, is able to effectively light, frame, use all grounds and space in the frame to enhance the photograph and make here subjects pop!  I was very pleased with my pictures and received positive feedback from family, friends, industry professionals and even a casting director!  Erica you are professional, fun, energetic, creative and wonderful person to work with.  You truly love your work and it shows in your photographs. I will definitely come back!  Thank you for making me look fantastic!!

-Linda E, SAG-AFTRA Actress


On September 9th, I turned 36 years awesome and as a way to remember where I stood in life as well as have a fresh start to get back into my long lost love of producing as well as acting, I decided to get new and fresh headshots to commemorate this occasion. Because of this life landmark, I needed the best by my side and could not imagine anyone besides Erica Derrickson taking care of my needs.  

My new headshots are not just pictures, they are life lasting memories and an incredible professional way to represent myself in every industry I dive into and indulge in. 

Thank you very much Erica Derrickson. This is more than a shoot, but rather a gift. You've made me feel more beautiful than I ever felt in my life. You've enabled me with an inner strength and power that I can now see that I've had all along. You've made an impact and imprint on my heart and life. 

Anyone looking to enhance their professional image, I would suggest utilizing Erica for her incredible talents. She is personable and as vulnerable as you are, open, suggestive, funny and focuses on bringing out your inner strengths, qualities and beauty. She specializes in headshots and other personal photos. If you have ANY photography needs - look to her first.

There are photographers and then there are artists. Photographers capture a moment and artists capture a soul. I met Erica on the recommendation of my daughters theater teacher. I brought two of my kids for a comp card headshot session. 
Erica is an artist.
Pre shoot Erica gave me plenty of instruction so we came well prepared with outfits and fun props to help the kids be themselves & have fun. Her recommendations are comprehensive and really allowed us to make the most of the session. 
When we arrived she put us at ease. No pretense here.  
The kids were super comfortable and my husband and I retreated to allow Erica do her work. 
The shots are simply amazing. Of course I think my kids are easy on the eye but Erica brought about a dimension of personality in the photos. Having to pick is the worst because almost every set offers gems that could be "that" headshot. Erica was happy to make some recommendations.  We took them and posted on my daughters talent profile. Within 10 days my daughter got a paid gig from the photo alone.  Coincidence? I don't think so. We are simply delighted and look forward to years of her work.

-Debbie G.


Upon meeting Erica, I knew my headshot session was going to not only be fun but extremely helpful for my career. Erica is truly an artist. She does a wonderful job of making her clients feel comfortable and welcome. It is very easy to see why she was voted best headshot photographer in Boston! I am extremely pleased with my headshots and I can't wait to work with this wonderful and talented artist again someday.

-Samantha W.


I would recommend any actor or model in the Boston area to consider Erica Derrickson first and foremost as their headshot photographer. Not only does Erica have extraordinary technical skill and vision as a photographer, but she is an accomplished actress as well. Through these two channels, Erica has the unique ability to know what the actor needs from his or her headshot and deliver a headshot that is a true collaboration between you and Erica. She is aware of the power of the headshot as not only an attractive photo, but as the "calling card" of the actor, our most powerful marketing tool. I enjoy working with Erica because she also has a vested interest in getting to know the actor and his or her ambitions, and using the headshot to help the actor channel the energy they want to put out in future audition scenarios. When we shot together for the first time, I was so thankful that Erica took the time to sit down for a conversation and get to know me as a person and my goals as an actor, as that greatly helped to elucidate to both of us what I needed from my headshots. When you are preparing for a headshot shoot with Erica, I would recommend asking yourself ahead of time: what kind of roles do I want to be booking with this headshot in the next few years? Then, share this information with Erica to help her guide the session so that she can help your headshot reflect not only the kind of roles you currently book as an actor, but where you want to go. One additional perk of shooting with Erica was that I found myself instantly welcomed into her network of connections in the Boston film industry. If Erica can find a way to help you through not just your headshot but through connecting you to other opportunities, she will.

-Sarah M.


As a fulltime actor I need my headshots to be totally spot on, and with Erica that's what I get! I've worked with Erica several times and it's not just her superb skills as a photographer, but her ability to illicit a performance that allows her to capture me exactly how I want to be seen by casting directors, filmmakers and other industry professionals. She sets a tone for a fun and relaxing shoot and that's what the camera sees, and ultimately the industry will see. 

Erica is arguably one of the best headshot photographers in Boston...hands down. If you've worked with her you know, if you haven't you should!

- Michael S.


Working with Erica was so much fun! She's so sweet and makes you feel very comfortable. Erica's very personable and really gets to know you before jumping into taking pictures right away. She's great at making your best features and characteristics come to life through her work! I'm very pleased with the final product! It was an overall great experience and first impression from Erica and I can't wait to book another session with her again in the future! I highly recommend her.

- Holly S.


I never write reviews but am so compelled to this time. Erica Derrickson is amazing. I am a local actress and have gotten head shots with her now two years in a row. Honestly headshots for me are such a struggle as I am not photogenic at all and don't make for the perfect subject. But Erica approaches her session with me so enthusiastically I feel reassured and know that somehow she will create the magic for me. It's a gift and I am grateful for her critical eye and sometimes unconventional approach to capture the perfect shot. I love her and you will love her and her work too, I promise!!

-Marty S.


Erica Derrickson will give you a fun and engaging headshot experience.  Erica and her people don't sacrifice professionalism to bring out the real and beautiful you.  In my personal experience, they showed concern to get the job done right by providing my associates in LA what they requested in my head shots.  Erica and her team didn't run off in their own direction with disregard to what was desired, but instead paid attention to the details, that produced the professional, useable, high quality head shots that were needed.  Money well spent!  Thank you Erica.

-Ted S.


My experience with EricasEye was nothing short of amazing. From the moment I stepped into her quaint studio in Boston, I immediately got the feeling I was dealing with a consummate professional. What's even better, Erica helps you select which photos would represent your look (s) best in your respective field from an unbiased standpoint. Erica's knowledge of lights, angles and humor definitely bring out the best of you in the photo session-- I was extremely happy with the final head shots that Erica was able to provide. I would highly recommend aspiring actors and models (or professionals in any field) to consider EricasEye for your next head shot session!

-Nate T.


EricasEye is where you go to acquire more than just a headshot. Erica Derrickson, of course, delivers both on the technical and logistical side with clearly stated expectations and guidelines before, during and after the session.  Her signature and stand-out trait is treating you as if you are the only customer in the room.  She is tremendously dedicated to make you not just in your "best form" or to fit a particular aim (actors headshot, professional headshot) but truly you.  She goes out of her way to make sure you are relaxed, at ease and, most importantly, yourself.  In the end, you have more than just a headshot; you have a chance to show to others your true self.

I highly recommend her for your creative and professional headshot needs, especially for media.

-Derek P.


Erica rocks! She's extremely talented behind the camera. Her personality shines through the lens and she goes above and beyond to find her subjects' best angles. She knows how to make her subject comfortable. Highly recommended :)

-Eliza M.


I highly recommend Erica as a headshot photographer.  Erica brings a ton of positive energy to her photo shoots. She will work with with you to understand exactly what you want and need from your photos. Communication is key and she does an excellent job to prepare you ahead of time, and delivers on schedule as promised. I would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

-Scott B.

-Russell R.


I highly recommend Erica Derrickson to everyone that needs  head shots. Her energy and enthusiasm is AMAZING!!  Erica is a true professional and amazing photographer.  It was my first photo session and I was nervous and didn't know what to expect. When I arrived Erica made me feel comfortable, relaxed and confident through the entire session. She strives to bring out your inner beauty in each photo. 

She sent me all the unretouched photos to choose from and was very patient and helpful in choosing my top photos. Overall my experience was FANTASTIC!!! I could not be happier with my high quality professional head shots, it was worth every dollar. 

Erica is such a knowledgeable person in the acting industry, she is a great resource to have and not only does she offer head shots but also business cards and classes at Boston Casting.  I recommend all actors to look into her services you wont regret it.

If you need head shots - for whatever - Erica is the one to go to!!! She is super professional, knows exactly how to guide you and makes you feel at ease in front of the camera, - her eye is impeccable, her knowledge of lighting spot on! What more can I say? I never looked better in a head shot! It was so fun, easy and awesome to work with her and the results are stunning. Also, she does spend a lot of time afterwards to retouch the photos so they still look totally natural yet "perfect"!  She is an artist through and through and besides that a really sparkling person with a generous personality!

-Ute G.


Erica is the bomb! She is SO easy going yet SO professional! We hired her for our 9 year old daughters first headshot photoshoot.

-Marilyn M.


Erica Derrickson has most certainly been one of the most professional, fun, and friendly headshot photographers I've had the chance to work with! She is so easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable! She knows exactly what an actor needs in a headshot and it's clear she knows what she's doing! Any actor looking to boost their career really needs to head to Erica for some updated shots, worth every penny!

Boston kids actor Morgan McIver stands out at Boston Casting, Inc!

Boston kids actor Morgan McIver stands out at Boston Casting, Inc!

Erica is an amazing photographer, and individual. Last summer (2014), I took my daughter into Boston to have her headshots taken by Erica - and the results were stunning. Erica has such a wonderful eye for the world around her, and her spirit and energy helped my daughter shine in the photos. We had friends and family consistently tell us that the photos were beautiful, and that they showed my daughter's personality perfectly. On top of that, once I uploaded the photos to my daughter's casting profile on Boston Casting, the traffic statistics showing how often individuals were looking at her headshots for possible casting, increased drastically. The numbers proved to me that having a strong headshot can make all the difference in the world. This summer (2015), we had Erica take my daughter's professional headshots again. I can't wait to see how these new headshots help my daughter shine even more. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Erica to anyone who is looking for a professional headshot photographer in Boston. She is passionate about what she does and it shows through her beautiful photography!

"A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of getting my headshots done with the amazingly talented and incredibly warm, Erica Derrickson. For starters, I'm not an easy person to photograph and getting my picture taken almost always results in awkward "cheese-ing," but Erica rose to the challenge! She has this innate ability to put people at ease and I found myself laughing all the way through our session. She has an incredible eye for lighting, background, and colors and captures the most extraordinary moments when you least expect it. It's very apparent how much she loves what she does and how dedicated she is. And as if the beautiful headshots weren't enough, at the end of our session, Erica took the time to give me tips on how to get started! She is truly an inspiring person and I couldn't be happier to have met her."

Going to Erica's photography studio in Boston was one of the best experiences I have had in my professional career. I needed new professional acting headshots and modeling portfolio pictures taken and Erica came up with a plan to get the multiple looks I needed and the price was extremely reasonable in comparison to other photographers I had looked at online. She put on music that I would like during my shoot and we even had a 10 minute meditation break to get me relaxed and comfortable for the long day. She has a very special talent for bringing the best out of everyone that she photographs and I get nothing but compliments on the final pieces. I recommend her services for anyone looking for high quality professional photographs that capture the true essence of a person!

Erica is a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her for headshots. She makes you feel at home and has great ideas of where to take pictures. She has great vision and knows what a great acting headshot is and what the casting directors want to see. My son had his professional headshots taken by her last year and he has gotten so many compliments and auditions from his pictures. He also got a lot of jobs just by picture alone. Now my second son just had his acting headshots done by Erica. Cant wait to see where he will go with these! Thank you Erica for the great pictures of both my sons!

My experience with Erica was absolutely amazing. Not only did she take incredible photos in the most interesting and creative places, but she connected with me on a personal level. I was truly inspired to go out and start my new journey with acting. Every new actor starting out should speak to her and get their headshots done.

Alexandra Walsh


I'm a repeat customer of Erica's primarily for the fact that I've never once been disappointed with her work. From the initial set up of the shoot straight through to the printing of the photos, it's never been anything but a smooth ride. As someone who is like a deer in the headlights in front of a camera, I can say confidently that she a headshot photographer who works to make you comfortable in front of her lens, which is SO important. On top of that, never once have I been provided with a selection of photos from her that wasn't extremely difficult to narrow down to which ones I'd like to have retouched. She takes amazing shots, knows all of the angles, and lighting is a tool she absolutely knows how to utilize in order to guarantee a wonderful array of photos every time. I highly recommend Erica to anyone looking for professional acting headshots that will be a well representation of who you are, and wow any and every casting director you send them to. A++

Acting Headshots for Michael Swanson shot by Best of Boston Headshot Photography Erica Derrickson

I just had a session with Erica last week and the resulting photos are simply amazing. She not only has wonderful technical skills as a photographer (as the Director of an Art and Photography department I speak from experience) but her ability to elicit a "performance" from her subjects is amazing! She had me laughing and at ease the entire time, and that's sometimes the toughest part. I recommend Erica wholeheartedly...but don't take my word for it, just see her fantastic headshots for yourself!

michael steven swanson


Erica is not only a skilled photographer who creates stunning images, she is a warm and caring individual. Among wisdom that Erica has dispensed after her travels to India: "the difference between a con and someone who is really trying to help you is whether or not they care about what happens to you in the end."

As a photographer, Erica cares what happens to you in the end. Her goal is not merely to create a beautiful and technically skilled headshot. She wants to create a piece that puts your essence and being out there in the world as an artist, so that you are most likely to be seen by the right people at the right time. She cares deeply that these images help you to succeed in your artistic journey. Her use of interviews during the process will help her realize exactly what kind of headshots you are looking for, and who you are as an artist. Each of Erica's headshots is a unique work of art, specifically styled to reflect the essence of the person. You won't see the same background or lighting setup used over and over here. Erica will get creative, and take you on a little journey to find just the right elements to reflect your personality and bring out your best look. I believe Erica sees the inner beauty in every person, and her headshot photographs certainly reflect that.

Actress Amber Delph shot by Best Headshot Photographer in Boston photographer Erica Derrickson

When I arrived at Erica's studio she was extremely welcoming and friendly. She took the time to find out more about my acting career and what I hoped to achieve during the shoot. Her clear direction, positive energy, and creative eye made it easy for me to let my personality show in every photo she took. After the shoot, Erica worked with me to decide which photos I should use for my portfolio. She truly puts in a lot of hard work and dedication to make sure her client is happy with their photos. If you're looking for a professional headshot photographer in the Boston area I highly recommend Erica Derrickson

Amber Delph


"For months I searched for the right headshot photographer in Boston to create my daughter's professional modeling headshots. When I discovered Erica's website and started following her on social media, it was very apparent to me that she absolutely loves and enjoys what she does and it reflects in her work. I was already sold from what I saw alone, but after hearing all the lovely reviews that sealed the deal. From the moment we walked into her photography studio in Boston, it was very warm and welcoming and my daughter felt right at home. Erica was absolutely AMAZING with my daughter and made her feel completely comfortable and in control throughout the entire headshot photoshoot experience. She was very patient, personable, and fun! I honestly can write a novel about how great our experience was with her, but I'll end by saying that I can promise you that you will not be disappointed when you choose to use her for any of your acting and modeling photography needs!"

Extremely happy,

- Zafir Latessa


"We now have beautiful professional acting headshots for my 9 year old son thanks to Erica. He hands them in at auditions with confidence. He has had great luck this year landing parts in 2 wonderful shows. For one of the shows his headshot was showcased in the lobby of the theatre with the rest of the cast and that made him extremely happy and excited! Thank you again Erica for helping to create dreams come true!"

"I absolutely love the work that Erica did for me. She made me feel very at ease during our session, and together we created three different looking professional headshots that give me a lot of versatility.  Erica's eye for composition, her mastery of the technical aspects and her personal warmth are the perfect combination for winning headshots.  Would I go back to Erica again?  In a heart beat! "

- Ann K


"It was time for updated acting headshots for my actress daughter, Brooke.  Our photoshoot with the lovely and fabulously talented Boston headshot photographer Erica Derrickson was nothing but pure joy!  The photos are absolutely stunning.

Erica has a great way of making her subjects feel at ease in front of the camera - resulting in pure, organic shots.  Her professional retouching services are very affordable and her skill in this area emphasizes all the best attributes of her models while retaining a natural look.

What amazed me the most about Erica is her patience and willingness to work with her clients to achieve the best results.  The time she spent making certain we had proper directions to her photography studio in Boston, helping select wardrobe and make up, taking hundreds of shots to ensure she captured every angle imaginable was incredible.  

Her followup has been equally attentive, getting me the retouched photos and exquisitely designed business cards in no time at all.

I could not recommend Erica’s Eye professional acting headshots and modeling photos more emphatically!  We will certainly utilize her services again and again!"

"Erica's Eye is the perfect moniker for Boston headshot photographer, Erica Derrickson. Her amazing headshot photography captures the very essence of her many and varied subjects. Erica takes the time to get know her clients and she assists in the selection of outfits and accessories. Then, the magic begins: The headshot photoshoot. That's when you will experience Erica's Eye at work. It feels as if you are both dancing with the camera. You and your headshot photographer will synchronize. Soon after, you will make your selections, and then your beautifully finished, professional acting headshots, modeling headshots or corporate headshots will arrive. All I can say is "Amazing." I love my new acting headshots, and am grateful to Erica for her vision. Make your appointment today, do not delay!"

-Elaine Victoria Grey


"I wasn't even looking for modeling headshots at the time I came across Erica's work online, but when I saw her work I knew I had to book a session for my 7 year old daughter, model/actress Jocelyn.  Her photographs were amazing!!! Jocelyn went and loved every minute of the photoshoot - she was having fun with Erica all while she was clicking away.  Erica didn't make her pose and stay still - which is super hard for any child to do. She had her giggling, making funny faces, and giving her high fives - and in between she shot these beautiful modeling headshots! Erica has such an eye for the perfect shot that we had trouble narrowing it down on what ones to choose.  With these, Jocelyn has been getting a lot more work - she is standing out and her new acting headshots are getting her noticed!!

I highly recommend booking Erica Derrickson, she makes you feel at ease and the results are phenomenal!"

- Carla Vogel

 


 

“I could not be happier with the end result of my photoshoot with Erica. She is very passionate about her craft and truly puts her heart into every shot she takes. She is able to instill confidence and reassurance, which truly puts you at ease in front of the camera. Most of all I had a great time and now I am happy to call her a friend.

"I had the opportunity to watch Erica skillfully maneuver through a photoshoot with my niece as she worked her magic with a number of backgrounds & poses. I was simply in awe of her talent and at how she handled a young lady who barely spoke english. Her attitude, sweetness, & magnetic personality is clearly bound to resonate well with kids & adolescents -- so if you have a child actor and need a headshot, look no further.

Having a background in photography myself, I can tell you that Erica is very skilled and is unbelievably gifted. I highly recommend her for your next acting, modeling or corporate headshot. You will not only go home with the perfect creative headshot, but so happy that you booked them with her because the whole experience is awesome!"

"My son Charlie is a 10 year old professional Boston actor. We visited Erica for new acting headshots a few months back. Charlie wasn't feeling well that day and I was doubtful that she would be able to get even one good picture. She worked with him, made him comfortable, and was somehow able to get so many beautiful and creative headshots that it was hard to choose which ones to use!

Erica's "eye" is spectacular. She was able to get acting headshots that captured the true essence of Charlie. The pictures are beautiful. I couldn't be happier."

"What impressed me about working with Boston headshot photographer Erica Derrickson was how welcoming she was. Her conversational style made me felt at ease and she also gave clear directions that helped bring out the things that are my strengths. I have not worked with anyone so skilled at capturing my photograph as she.

Immediately after seeing the photos I was given a boost of confidence in myself that I did not anticipate. I didn't merely look good, I looked like myself - my best self. This is Erica's strength as a headshot photographer. Placing herself behind the lens with as much skill as she places herself in the shoes of her subject."
