Chris instantly makes you feel at ease. His passion and enthusiasm for what he does is contagious! Shooting with Chris is truly a one of a kind experience. He’s fun, he’s creative and he’s the best! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or better headshots.

I know what you’re thinking…I hate getting my picture taken. With Chris it’s different. He uses acting techniques to bring to life the most unforgettable headshots. Once you work with Chris Frampton you will never need to work with another photographer again.

Chris Frampton is never surface about photography. He brings out the essential essence of an actor by getting them to engage actionably in real emotion. The result  is an image that is more than another “pretty picture”. His portraits are affecting.

I love Chris Frampton! He creates the most interesting moments. He knows how to get the best out of people and then capture it.

Put it this way… I flew from New Orleans to Toronto twice to shoot with Chris Frampton, and each time was well worth the visit!

Auditioning and working with Chris was the kind of experience that an actor feels grateful for and strives to achieve with every director. Instead of looking over your shoulder and judging based on his opinions, every scene was a two sided discussion. I have always felt that a director should feel like a comrade who in the end will take a project to where he wants with tact and an open mind. This is Chris.

Chris is a true artist. He pours himself into his work and it shows. A photo shoot with Chris (I’ve done a few and I will be back for more) is free and easy – without stress or worry. He has this marvellous way of conjuring up the most beautiful and honest parts of you and capturing them on camera. I’m grateful for his work.

Like most actors I have an aversion to getting my resume shots done. Chris made me forget that the experience was humiliating. I walked out feeling like a talented actor. Not a failed model. Chris is interested in people so you don’t feel like you have to convince him of anything. He is a great observer who is waiting for you to find you, not waiting for you to live up to his expectations. Gush Gush Gush!

Working with Chris Frampton was an extraordinary pleasure. Every moment captured is full of life and specificity! Even the outtakes are worthy of handing over to agents and casting directors. His sense of style, color and space, and his ability to make headshots feel natural and playful, is unmatched. In nine hundred more words, I still couldn’t come close to describing what he can do with one frame. Do yourself a favor.

I felt comfortable with Chris right away. During the shoot he sensed the shifts in my energy that most photographers overlook. He allowed me to be myself, whether that was excited, nervous, silly, or serious. Instead of prodding a reaction out of me, he created a space where I felt safe to explore different states of being. The experience of shooting with him felt collaborative—I was able to shape the experience with him.

Working with Chris was a wonderful experience! He has an incredible ability to bring out the best and most natural side of an actor. Chris’s headshots secured me my first agent who commented that it was one of the best headshots they’ve seen – in fact, this was frequent feedback I heard at auditions. I cannot recommend Chris enough. His work is unique and eye-catching. He truly understands what casting directors want.

Auditioning for Chris Frampton is like no other. Chris makes you feel comfortable. More importantly, he treats you as a person. Chris is incredible at making the actor feel at peace while letting you fully express yourself in an audition and on set. I highly recommend working with him.

Chris is an original. His approach resulted in unique, multifaceted shots that really captured both who I am and who I could be. He knows how to create impact.

My first time shooting with a photographer of Chris’s calibre. He put me at ease and brought out a new me. The results were stunning. I just love the quality of the finished product.

There are how many photographers in Los Angeles? And yet I travelled all the way to Toronto to see you. Enough said.

Just love working with Chris Frampton! Beyond being wildly adept at his craft, he is a gentle, kind, curious, and intelligent man. He knows just how to make a actor feel at home and taken care of during a shoot. He listens deeply and has a lovely spirit and ease about him. I highly recommend him!

Upon meeting Chris you can sense his passion, not only for photography but for people and their personal stories. I came to Chris on the referral of a friend who resides in LA.  He had asked around to find out who the best photographer in Toronto is.  His friends in the industry rave about Chris and his work.

I have never been so relaxed and had so much fun getting headshots done. It’s like hanging out, goofing around and doing scene work with a great friend. And then there are the photos! Wow. I never like photos of myself, and I honestly loved every one. Chris truly captured the essence of me. I have had amazing feedback on them and I recommend him to everyone. You are the best Chris!

Ava Himmel

I am constantly complemented on my headshots by directors, casting directors, and other actors. Even though I knew my headshots from Chris were fabulous, when I joined with one of the big agencies in the city I figured they’d want me to get brand new pictures, but my agent loved Chris’s shots! I recommend him to everyone and the ones who’ve taken my advice have all come back to thank me.

I got an amazing response from my headshots. I’ve had tons of auditions and have booked about 10 things since we did them, 2 of them were print ads booked solely from my pictures.

Stephanie Porter

What can I say?  You’re the best.  Every single time I send a client to you, I am never disappointed. Your style of shooting is edgy and eye catching.  The biggest issue I have is that you make my job of narrowing down my favourite pictures difficult.

Kathleen Black

I love my headshots from Chris! They are the first set that I’ve gotten back and thought “yup, that’s me.” The shoot was fun, easy going and I felt my personality shone through in the photographs. Chris was awesome to talk to about strategic looks. These are headshots that get me seen.

Daniella Forje

Chris is warm and engaging, which made for a super easy, fun, and relaxed shoot. His approach is collaborative and imaginative. He’s like an actor’s dream director. His storytelling approach made it easy to focus on the moment rather than on myself.  It was the least technical and most natural photo-shoot I’ve ever done. I Fucking Love My Photos!

Two things struck me right away about Chris: one, Within minutes of meeting him, I felt very comfortable talking to him about my life and career, and, two: I felt he knew a lot about “the biz” and talked about it with much knowledge and professionalism.

Chris made the unique and precariously self conscious exercise of the headshot into its own fascinating acting game. He has thought deeply about what constitutes an effective headshot. He created a relaxed atmosphere and with real sense of play helped me to be fully present and available to the camera. The photos have vitality.

Chris is utterly free of the strange tension that directors often possess – the need for an actor to be what he’s looking for. He exudes acceptance and curiousity; a genuine desire to connect and discuss as two artists and to know more about me as a person – something incredibly rare. In his process he asks every question like a child learning something new. He trusted my choices and knew which questions to ask of me – making sure I too approached the work with an invaluable openness.

Madison Walsh
Stacey Iseman

Auditioning for Chris is a little unorthodox. He never loses sight of the fact that the truthfulness of the individual has to shine through. Chris is a beautiful story-teller, and he really understands how to guide actors to serve the story they are telling with honesty, with nuance, and with the full juicy spectrum of human sensibility and humour. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

Lauren Lane Kwederis

I had photos done by Chris Frampton and they turned out better than ones that I got done in New York by a reputable photographer, and his cost half the price! He’s a blast to work with, and he brings out your inner beauty in his photos.

It’s very rare for a director to give the amount of freedom to his actors that Chris does. He never told me what to do or specific ways to do the scenes, instead he made small suggestions and encouraged me to explore. He trusted in me fully to do my job. He allowed me to trust in myself, my instincts, and my work in order to tell the best possible version of the story. I will always feel lucky to have indulged in Chris’s process.
