WHAT STORY DOES YOUR HEADSHOT TELL?

 

Actor headshots can look pretty and have perfect lighting but it is not an effective headshot if doesn’t tell a story.  More important than anything, is how engaging, marketable and relatable an actor comes across in their headshot. Having a pretty shot of yourself looking like a deer caught in headlights is not going to help you compete as an actor (unless you are auditioning for a Christmas show playing one of Santa’s Reindeer). I believe that knowing how to direct an actor during a headshot session, to help reveal their personality and marketability, is the most important skill that a headshot photographer should possess.
