What constitutes a different LOOK for your headshot sessions?

Actors are always told they need three or five or seven looks from their sessions. Agents and Managers are requesting multiple looks. What is a look?

A look is more than a clothes change. Its a change in character that you can play. You can have a different look without changing your outfit. But most headshot sessions I see show the same character portrayal in different outfits.

I decided to do shoot of my buddy and actor Nathan showing two characters he can portray without changing his wardrobe.

Headshots are a collaboration between Actor and Photographer. Its not just the photographer taking (clicking) your picture, its the photographer and the actor MAKING your headshot.

As actors you have one opportunity to make a first impression. It is a lot like online dating. If you send out a picture that is great but doesn't look like you, your date (casting) is gonna be disappointed. You won't get a second chance. But if you are able to capture your personality and the strongest aspects of your talents in that one frame, you'll find that there are a lot of people out there looking for someone just like you. SO, this blog is dedicated to getting you more dates, or rather auditions. We leave your actual dating life up to you. With over 30 years of experience in the photography and headshot business, I will keep you posted on the business of acting with an emphasis on photos.
