Headshots are your calling card, and serve as your first impression to industry professionals. Quality photos can speak volumes about what makes you unique as an actor by capturing your sparkle, your intensity, your depth, and passion. Your picture is worth a thousand words! So, as you submit yourself for roles, ask yourself these questions:* Are my current photos the best they can be?
Call (323) 300-6129 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. A forty minute session is $75.00 for all annual Premium or Premium Plus members. One hour sessions are $125.00 for all annual Premium or Premium Plus members.
Our well trained and personable photographer will guide you through the session step by step. If this is your first time taking headshots, try to relax, be authentic, and have fun. Boost your self-confidence by starting with your favorite look. This is a fun part of being an actor!
On the day of your appointment, please arrive at least 10 minutes early. Decide on your wardrobe and hairstyle in advance. Be rested and hydrated. Basic make-up and powder are available on site, and there is a changing room where you can get ready. And here is a standard industry tip: Don't go out the night before your photo shoot.
You can take as many photographs as you can fit in during the 40 minute session – but remember, quality is better than quantity, so you're better off spending your 40 minutes taking the highest quality headshots you can.
Here are some industry standard looks – but feel free to be creative!
Men: T-shirt, two button-down shirts, tie, blazer.
Women: T-shirt, jeans, tank top, business button-down shirt, gown or dress.
Ask yourself: Does my hair need to be professionally cut or styled? Does it appear clean and neat? Are my bangs too long? What look do I want? Do I need hairspray or gel?
Don't get a haircut the night before the shoot--unless that's the look you're sure you'll like.
Come prepared with hair already groomed. A touch-up mirror will be available.
You can bring a make-up artist if you like. Powder and basic make-up is available for use.
