Hi, I’m Ted and I’m obsessed with storytelling. I’ve been an actor ever since age seven. Back then I used to make up little plays to perform during Ely family gatherings and I would pretend to be The Phantom Of The Opera…I may or may not still pretend to be The Phantom Of The Opera…Photography came later.
I went to the University of Michigan for musical theatre and I have performed regionally and in various national tours across the country. I’ve produced, directed, shot, and acted in many film and TV projects. Headshot photography called to me about eight years ago. Shooting headshots combines my love for acting, visual storytelling and people. It’s truly a passion. Meeting new people and helping them be their best self in front of the camera is my jam! I currently work as an actor, headshot photographer, and filmmaker on both professional and personal projects.
Past headshot clients can be seen in the films Demolition and The Intern. On the Television shows The Flash, The Blacklist: Redemption, Elementary, 13 Reasons Why, Law & Order: SVU, Blue Bloods, Person of Interest, and Legends of Tomorrow.
On Broadway in Hamilton, Wicked, Aladdin, Hello, Dolly!, Waitress, Kinky Boots, A Bronx Tale, The Phantom of The Opera, Chicago, and more. I am a top referred headshot photographer for many talent agencies including: Clear Talent Group, Nicolosi & Co, Abrams Artist Agency, Bloc, MSA, and more.
