ACTOR HEADSHOTS THAT GET YOU IN THE ROOM
I have been shooting actor headshots in Vancouver since the first day that I picked up a camera over a decade ago. This is because I was an actor myself! Here is a look into my process:skip to portfolio
Each individual is unique, and it only makes sense to light you in a way that brings out your absolute best. If you follow my work, you’ll notice that I don’t adhere to a cookie-cutter lighting style. I am extremely specific about my lighting setups to complement your face shape, skin tone, and the character look we aim to achieve.
HOW TO LOOK INTO THE LENS
I take the time to teach you how to take a great headshot. From my experience, both in front and behind the lens, most people tend to feel uncomfortable when having their photo taken. My approach to actor headshots is very specific. First, I teach you how to look into the lens. If you look all of my work, you will notice one thing that everyone has in common: they all have presence and relationship in their eyes. You will too once you understand my approach. The eyes are the most crucial part of any headshot I take because it is your eyes that tell your story.
BE AN ACTOR
I approach actor headshots from an actor’s point of view. I talk about the various things you can pull from your training so you will be doing what you do for a living, acting, in front of my camera. If you are a new actor, do not worry; I have worked with hundreds of new actors with no training and we get the same results. I find out how you work and then I adjust my method to work with your strengths. I am absolutely determined to produce actor headshots that you feel great about that look and feel like you.
Casting directors and acting agents in Vancouver want you to have several different actor headshots that show you can play different characters. We focus on getting your version of these characters. During our photoshoot together, you and I will make sure that we are getting specific about the different roles that we think you can go out for. I want to put you in a position to succeed. I then set up the light and backdrop to help tell that story, making it easier for casting directors and directors to imagine you cast in their commercial, tv show, or movie.
