2023 Headshot Day

Sunday, December 3, 2023 – 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Hosted by: Gary & Gayle Landis, 1 Wilder Lane Littleton, CO 80123

Denver Lyric Opera Guild is a non-profit membership organization that provides financial support for young Colorado opera singers. Traditionally our support has come through grants to area colleges and universities and opera company young artist programs, and through prize monies awarded through our annual Competition for Colorado Singers. This year, we are expanding our reach by providing a day for aspiring young Colorado opera singers to have access to a professionally done headshot at a greatly reduced price. As an organization, we understand that pursuing a career in opera comes with many financial challenges. While a professional headshot is a must for applications and websites, it can be a strain on a young artist’s budget. This is where Denver Lyric Opera Guild comes in.

For a signup fee of just $20, we are offering up to 25 young area opera singers the opportunity to receive a headshot taken by Jamie Kraus. Ms. Kraus is one of Colorado’s leading headshot and art photographers. Each singer will get one 15-minute studio session, with one outfit. Sessions come with one fully retouched photo included, with the option for the singer to purchase more at the session.

“One of the first competitions I participated in was Denver Lyric Opera Guild. Through the encouragement and feedback of the visiting judges and financial support of the Guild, I had the means to continue to pursue my “opera addiction.” As young artists, we encounter so many hardships, disappointments and setbacks. But because of DLOG, when these blows came down, I still had the means and encouragement to push through.”
