Guidelines
Once you have booked an appointment, we can go over the details that would best enhance your individual needs. Acting head shots are now done in color. We suggest setting up a professional make up artist for you that understands color and lighting. Bring several changes of clothes for the shoot. Solid colors work best, no busy patterns or logos. Come with your hair like you normally wear it. Men, bring your hair gel and style it at the studio. (We can help you with the minimal make up you may need.) If you wear contact lenses, bring a case to remove them for the photo shoot. Also, everyone should bring eye drops in order to have clear eyes in your pictures. Please bring your old headshots if you have any.

Headshots
Headshots are used for all kinds of businesses, from C.E.O'S or Real Estate agents to Actors. Acting headshots range from Commercial and Film to Industrial and Theatrical. It is important that it is a true representation of you, your "look" or the way you want others to perceive you. Sometimes people will want a variety of looks. Headshots are more commonly taken in the studio, although there are times a location shot may be more appropriate.

How to get an agent
Your first step is to contact an agency, requesting an appointment. Be prepared with your resume and a photo. If they are interested they will have you come in for an audition. Have a monologue ready, in case they ask. Prepare yourself with as much training as possible. Regardless of what agency you decide to sign with, they will need a professional headshot. I believe you look more professional with a good headshot in hand.
