Headshots for Actors
We all know the old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and it is very true in show business. An actor’s headshot is their best marketing tool 99% of casting directors make their choices from an actor’s picture! So a top class headshot is essential.
Firstly it may sound obvious but your picture needs to show the way you look in person. It is important to keep your hair and makeup natural, no heavy eye, cheekbone or lip makeup. Your hair should be in your usual style for instant recognition, headshots should always show the current length and colour of your hair. If you have freckles – leave them on the photo. If you vary your hair from curly to straight sometimes or you are a man usually clean shaven but sports a beard now and again you may need to think about 2 headshots.
There has been a move to Landscape Headshots but most casting directors say they still prefer portrait (upright) headshots as they are easier to handle when sifting through 100’s of pictures.
Even if you are submitting your headshot on line electronically if your headshot is landscape you run the risk of your headshot being uploaded to a casting site sideways; which also makes it smaller. Casting directors do not have time to keep turning pictures around so they quickly move on to the next picture.
Keep your clothing simple and expressions natural
Often as not your headshot will be seen as a thumbnail to begin with so make sure you have a picture with impact that fills the frame and looks good small. Always use a professional photographer who has experience and knowledge of what an actual headshot should look like, how it should be lit properly and what casting directors look for in a headshot.
Pretty much your actor’s headshot should still be a ratio 8X10 and do remember to staple an 8X10 resume to the back of your headshot. When choosing what to wear keep it plain, unfussy and straightforward stay away from tops with bright colour, patterns or large logos. You always want all the viewers’ attention on your face, specifically your eyes.
We always suggest a simple white or grey background for actor’s headshots and we make sure your skin colour and our lighting are just perfect for you. We want your headshot to “pop” off the page. We use a small, narrow depth of field if there is any texture in the background to blur it away. We can also add your name onto the front of images and a contact number if required.
