The headshot is a necessary marketing piece for any actor or performer.
A director wants to bring a story to life. They’re looking for a special mix of physical feature set and personality from the actors they audition and they gather a lot of that from your headshot before they hear you read.
Any casting director will tell you the first tip for actors looking for a new headshot is to ‘go pro.’ Like a director, we excel at drawing out honest and compelling expressions from you while putting you in the best light for your facial structure.
Just like on-camera acting it is all about the eyes. Your eyes showcase a depth of emotion and personality no other facial feature can match. The shot needs to meet a minimum of three critical requirements:
Looks like you on your best day.
Captures something unique about your personality.
Stands out from the crowd, thus grabbing the attention you merit.
