A headshot is one of the first impressions you will be making to a casting director, producer or anybody involved in the casting process. This is just one of the reasons why it is so vital to ensure it is done correctly.
Why use a professional headshot photographer?
When preparing for your headshot session, there are a few things to bear in mind and come prepared with.
It is important to know and learn more about your casting type. Your casting type is made up of factors including your age, gender, ethnicity, personality and more. These all contribute to which roles suit you and fit well for you.
Appearance factors also contribute to the headshot you are creating. Your haircut needs to be styled correctly as this can alter your look drastically. A haircut frames the face and will change a look, such as if you are having it tied back. Make sure you have your hair styled in a way that suits you and is accurate to your everyday look. Makeup can also do this and may take away your natural look that casting directors are often looking for. Make sure makeup is applied to enhance your natural features, rather than alter it.
When choosing what clothes to wear, it is important to think what compliments you. Make sure to consider skin tone, eye colour and hair colour. It is always a good idea to bring a few different outfits, therefore you can mix up styles such as necklines and materials etc. It’s also recommended to wear plain block colour tops and nothing with logos.
