WHAT ARE HEAD-SHOTS?
Headshots are one of the most Important tools an Actor has when it comes to landing the perfect role. Headshots are designed to give Casting Directors and Directors a look at the archetypes you are capable of playing. They are not just simply a nice photo of you. There is way more to it than that.
Your Headshots should be based of your marketing. So what does that mean? if you are marketing yourself as the thug type, then your headshots should reflect the thug type, by showing more photos of looks such as aggression or intimidation, rather than happy-go-lucky smiling. If your Archetype is the warm loving mother, you will be focusing more on warmth and kindness in your shots. This way when people look at your headshots they should instantly be able to pick your archetype.
How do we do this? It's all about having a story behind the eyes, using different methods throughout the shoot, and focusing on different emotions and expressions. We tailor every single shoot to our client's needs. Based off their marketing and they roles they are currently going out for.
