How to prepare for your Actor Headshots
I like to make sure that you get the most out of your photoshoot. We will get some fabulous photos of you, that’s for sure. However, I’d like to also give you the opportunity to have a bit of a workout in front of the camera by playing with your expressions and muscle movements whilst we cover a few different emotions.
Therefore, have a look in the mirror and see how your eyebrows move, what happens when you only smile with one half of your mouth, and how you look when you combine a furrowed brow with a pursed lips?
Finally, my home studio is very basic, but the photos will be amazeballs, so just keep an open mind!
What to wear to your Actor Headshots session
Obviously we can chat about this in more detail, but I suggest wearing a pair of jeans, or something similar, so you can be really comfortable. Generally, your headshots are only from your hips up and so your pants and shoes aren’t important. Of course, if we’re going to do something a little different, then we can plan your complete wardrobe.
Please bring a couple of shirt options. Earthy colours like navy, khaki, brown, grey, olive, rust, black, etc. look effortlessly understated and won’t compete with your eyes for attention. Therefore, avoid bright or patterned fabric. And steer away from clothing with logos (unless you’re trying to send a particular message). Collars are fine, and so are t-shirts. However, look for tighter fitting t-shirts rather than loose t-shirts. Jackets are a great addition and can add a bit of dynamism to your image.
Ladies, bring a second lipstick, and perhaps a hair clip. Practise changing your hair before you come so that you know what you want to achieve, without taking up too much of your photoshoot time in front of the mirror. Of course, if you’re including hair and makeup in your photoshoot, that’s not necessary.
