As soon as I arrived I felt I was in good hands. The fact that you took the time to get to know me meant you were able to discover what it would take to capture me at my best.”
Getting the perfect headshot is key to the success of all actors. In many cases, casting directors, when looking at your picture, give themselves only seconds to decide if you are suitable for a role. So when it comes to headshots, being able to stand out from the crowd is of the highest priority to the actor. As well as getting a striking image to grab the attention of potential employers, you also want to be able to look natural and true to yourself. Casting directors can find it frustrating when the person who turns up for an audition looks different from how they look in their photograph.
Your headshot not only needs to show what you look like but also an aspect of your personality that people will want to work with.
