Baque Photography Headshot Special


Actors, Side Show Performers, Burlesque, Magicians, Clowns and Variety Entertainers

in the Los Angeles area!

Billy Baque has recently moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Baque Photography does headshots, live performance shots and event photography.

Billy is running a one-week headshot special until the 28th of February.

You can book an ordinarily $500 shoot during this week; schedule anytime in the next three months, and get the shoot for less than half price!

For $200 you get an hour and a half shoot with two changes of look or clothes at the location of your choice within the Los Angeles area.


“Billy Baque has been my photographer for the last five years, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about his work, both in performance and character shots as well as professional headshots. He has an uncanny ability to capture performance shots at the instant the emotion registers in full.” ~ Pop Haydn


“Billy’s photoshoot was one of the best experiences that I’ve had. He’s open-minded, full of great ideas, and has this way of taking your picture–without feeling like you are being photographed!” ~ Rob Zabrecky

Sunflowers on my Mind

These are photos taken in my garden. It is so good to leave the office and sit outside a bit and watch the bees.

I have been spending the last few days playing with my new Okito Coin Box. This is a wonderful piece made be craftsman Craig Ousterling.

Billy Baque has been staying with me the past few days, and he oversaw the machining of the piece which Craig does on a small lathe, and gifted me with this. Billy has been staying at my house the last few days, and he has been helping me design my routine for the box. Photos by Billy Baque.

I am very excited about the routine, and pleased beyond measure at this generous gift.
