Headshots get you opportunities, open doors to auditions, and help you book work. Headshots are also the primary tool for actors and background performers to promote themselves. You won’t get far without a good set of headshots.
A theatrical headshot really needs to pop. It needs to catch the eye of casting, exude confidence, professionalism and say, “I am damn good, will nail this role with no drama and will not be a liability.” When you have that confidence, and your headshots convey that, you will book a ton of work.
Background Casting Directors want a headshot that shows what you would look like blending in, so it’s not unusual to include exteriors and interior scenes in the background. Many also want background performers to include at least one medium length body shot.
Commercial headshots should convey a warm, likable personality. You can be more playful with wardrobe and looks, but they still need to look professional and exude confidence. Your headshot photographer should understand the roles you gravitate towards and shoot your looks accordingly.
Everyone needs good headshots for work and social media, but all companies, no matter how large or small, should invest in professional corporate headshots for key team members and executives. If you’re looking to move up the corporate ladder, a good headshot is especially important.
