Headshots

YOUR HEADSHOT IS YOUR ESSENCE

You only have one chance to make a great first impression and Your Headshot IS that First Glimpse! The Perfect Headshot captures your persona, individualism, beauty, and character.  It must represent YOU!!!...With all your spirit, features, and flaws.

 

Headshots are not about capturing just an attractive portrait.  Your confidence must radiate through the Image!  That’s what separates you from the crowd!

 

KNOW YOUR TYPE

As an actor, model, or executive you must be faithful to personality. Are you a leading man? Debonair? Eccentric?  What role do you see yourself in?  Do your research, and talk to your manager or agent. They may picture you in one role while you see yourself in another.  It is important to find out their needs with your shots as well as yours.

 

HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE SHOOT

It all starts with confidence and a great attitude!  The best headshots are always the ones where individuals are relaxed, prepared, and know who they are.  Come prepared to have fun!

 

Wardrobe, hair, makeup and the right “look” are all essential, but your personality is what we want to exude in your headshot.  The goal is to get an image that leaps off the page and has the casting director wanting you for the audition. There is nothing a casting director hates more that calling someone in off his or her headshot, and having someone else walk in and look nothing like it!

 

HAIR & MAKEUP

Hair & Makeup are essential.  Having the right makeup that looks natural and enhances your features can make a good photo turn into a GREAT photo.  What might look good in person doesn’t always turn out so good on camera.  If possible, I highly recommended that you have a Makeup Artist and Stylist help you look your best.  You wouldn’t do your own makeup on a fashion shoot or movie set, so why would you chance it for your headshots?  You must treat the session with the same importance and preparation.

 

AFTER THE SHOOT

Having your photo taken is only the first step!!  You have spent your hard-earned time and money investing in Professional Photos so why would you compromise all of that with Poor Quality Prints or bad retouching!

 

After your shoot you will receive a link to your session.  Once you and your agent have selected the images you want, you will then decide if any need retouching.  In addition, because printing photos require a much larger resolution than those on the web, you will need to pick out which photos will be for online use only and which ones you will print.

I will assist you in selecting your best images, what needs to be retouched, and you will have the option to go through our printing services or one of your own choosing.
