Actor headshot sessions can be focused on one particular look and mood, when the intended use is geared for a planned audition. Usually, sessions are aimed at producing one main headshot for most casting calls and auditions … and then some supporting headshots, showing some variation. These secondary headshots are perfect for your casting workbook, where casting directors, directors and agencies can have a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th look at you.
In both types of sessions, my favourites (and usually my actors’ favourites too) convey some of their own personality. We’re often playing at multiple locations and real environments –> getting out of the photo studio, so an actor can get into character in places that add to the real feel of that personality.
