Your Headshot Guide and FAQ

Why do I need Professional Headshots?

Casting directors and agents will agree on one thing, your headshot needs to be able to stand out over others.

It may not be about your looks in general but the feeling that you transmit from them.

The likelihood is that if directors and agents find your actor headshot engaging, then you will have more chances of being called to their offices for an interview or for an audition.

That is why is so important that you select the right Photographer!

Selecting your Photographer

The best way to find a good headshot photographer is by referral or seeing the photographer’s work for yourself.

If you have friends in the industry or an agent that you trust, ask them whom they would recommend for your actor headshots.

Most photographers display their portfolio directly on their website and you can determine if their style of photography suits your needs.

It is important not to assume that the headshot photographer that charges the most money will give you the best results.Their work may not justify their pricing.

The best indicator to determine the success of a headshot photographer is by reading what other actors and actresses have said about their personal experiences.

Have a look at websites like EquitySpotlightCasting Call Pro or the newest Stage Satus. Some of them have Photographer, Member Directories and useful Forums.

Look at the testimonials left by actors.Interact with other actors in forums and ask for advice.
