You can be an absolutely amazing actor, but no one will appreciate your awesomeness and on camera genius until they see you. A great HEADSHOT has become a necessity in today’s acting market. It’s an odd conundrum as people hem and haw about spending money on headshots. I understand this. These days it seems everyone is saving money where they can and I don’t blame them one bit! The issue comes in with the old attage “You get what you pay for” and if you are getting your headshots from Joe Nobody on Craigslist, you have no idea what you will end up with. Your headshot is the first impression CASTING gets of you. If they aren’t any good, you aren’t getting past the front door and so there you will sit…at home…with all of your amazing talent…in front of the TV, instead of on it. So, do you need headshots? The answer is YES!!!! Do you need quality headshots? The answer is, well, that depends on what your goals are and where you are going….but hopefully the answer again is YES!!!
Here’s some questions to ask yourself when thinking about headshots…
Am I ready to take my acting to the next level? (Then your headshots better reflect that YES you are now yelling)
How many different shots/looks do I need to get? (This is answered by your team of representation and conversation with your photographer)
What photographer do I go to? (One that you CLICK with and will work with your needs and budget!)
