How to select a Headshot Photographer.

Look for variety! This is the single most important consideration. Your headshot must be unique to you. There’s nothing more disheartening than going to an audition with your brand new headshot, only to see ten other actors with the very same shot! Make sure the photographer you choose features a variety of angles, backgrounds, compositions, poses and expressions on their website. When looking through a photographer’s portfolio, you want each image to surprise you.

Feel comfortable with the photographer. Usually you can get a good idea of their energy through the website, but pick up the phone and give them a call as well. If you feel it’s important, sit down with them for a consultation. If you leave a headshot session wanting to hang out with your photographer, you’ve had a terrific shoot.

Make the investment in professional headshots. If you want to be taken seriously by the industry, the quality of your headshot must project professionalism. If you’re too thrifty, you’ll probably be told to get new headshots once you meet an agent or casting director. If you make the investment initially, you shouldn’t have to do it again until your look changes.
