Hi, I’m Francis hills and I’m a portrait photographer – I photograph people. I’m a people person: I shoot celebrities, actors, musicians and performers.
I PARTICULARLY LOVE ACTORS – YOU’RE A SPECIAL BREED UNTO YOURSELVES – MAD AS HATTERS – BUT I LOVE WORKING WITH YOU! I enjoy the creativity and energy you bring to the table.
Having a headshot session with me is first and foremost about collaboration. I start by working with you as an artist and together we’ll find that extra ‘something’ that you bring to the table – that something that is YOU.

p.s. Oh, and when you're at the studio, ask me what figjam means! :)
"I was so pleased with my shots by Francis and feel like he captured many different sides of me. I am so proud of images and very excited to go out and show them off! I would not hesitate to go back to Figjam for more headshots!"
"The shots look great. Thank you again for an easy and fun shoot. I went in very anxious, but came out much lighter and much more optimistic about getting my face out there in the business using your shots."
"Francis made me feel confident and beautiful! It was by far the most comfortable and fun experience I've ever had in front of a camera! I now have so many beautiful shots to choose from, can't wait for my next session!"
"I've never felt comfortable in front of a camera. But from our consultation to the moment you asked me what I wanted to listen to, I felt at ease. Once we started, the shoot felt more like a conversation. I'm so grateful for having had such a painless, and more importantly, such a FUN experience. I've walked away not only with some beautiful shots, but with a stronger understanding of the "characters" I can embody. So thank you very much."
"Working with Francis was a pleasure and I absolutely LOVE my headshots!! He is so kind, helpful, and guides you throughout the whole session on how to get the perfect shot. I will continue to recommend him to fellow actors because I enjoyed every moment and felt so comfortable!"
"Within two days of receiving my headshots from Francis, I booked an audition for a professional off-broadway show, and the shot was untouched! Incredibly intriguing, precise, and current. I would recommend FIGJAM HEADSHOTS to anyone…"
"Collaborating with you gave me the freedom to be myself. You presented the rare chance to be present in myself and to explore all the facets you saw in me. You are a rare man. You have a keen perception into what lies beneath the skin and a sensitivity that tunes into what is real and authentic about that person. You read souls."
"I would recommend Francis to anyone who is really serious about working in the industry. His expertise behind the camera will save you a lot of heartbreak and money wading thru the 'great' industry standard headshots. Don't waste time - get the very best."
"Just wanted to thank you again for the amazing headshots. The four agencies at Senior Showcase loved my headshot and from that, Avalon Artists Group is now representing me! I had such an amazing experience and will continue to recommend you to fellow actors. Again, thank you so much for your work and providing such a great experience."
"Francis is incredibly personable- if anything he makes you feel comfortable enough to have confidence in front of the camera. I enjoyed our session because Francis walks you through what it means to have a good headshot, so you feel more than prepared even before the session begins."
"I saw my head shots and I said WOW! And I am such a critic when it comes to my pictures. My expectations were surpassed. Francis makes you feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door. He is such a professional. Taking his advice is key and ultimately you will LOVE the results."
"Francis - I just did a 3 day workshop and got some really, really great feedback about my headshot! They said it will get me into every office in the city and that I had the best male headshot in the group!"
