As a photographer I love to take headshots: It is a great way to know you, and to combine our talents to make wonderful images!
Traditionally, an acting/talent headshot is an 8 x 10 sized photo of an actor's face. It is used in order to submit the actor to a specific role, and it is attached to an acting resume. Together they are your introduction to casting directors and agents. Up until a few years ago the photograph had to be in black and white. Today the photo may be in color, and is now sometime submitted online.
A talent headshot should look like you, today. It should be flattering, showing your best features and project your personality, and/or the character type you might be portraying.
In fact, you might use a different headshot for different roles. That’s why the image of your session are published in a private gallery, and you can always order any additional editing and prints later on based on your need.
Nowadays, talent headshots are not just for actors. Dancers, musicians, performing artists may need a portrait or a headshot to get an audition. Writers may need one for their blog. Athletes may need one too for their social media or for publication.
Sessions take place in our studio, in Kirkland,WA where we’ll setup music you like. The camera is tethered to a screen so we will see everything as we go. Showing you the photos in real time is an educational tool to get convincing expressions. We’ll approve and delete the images on the spot. By doing this, we can mold the shots specifically for you and you'll know exactly what you’ll be working with when we’re done. Once the session is over, we’ll upload the keepers to your private online gallery that you can share with friends, family, coaches, your agent, or any other industry professional to help you chose the photos that you’ll want to be edited.
