Taking Headshots isn’t just about taking a pretty picture. It’s about creating a tool that will help you display the best representation of yourself, when you can’t be present to do so. Figuring out the marketing value of your headshots is what will set you apart from other actors that may have a similar look as you. Contact your agency to find out exactly what they want from your headshots. Where do you see yourself in the industry? Theatrical, Independent films, Commercial, Sitcoms, Comedy? Think about the various types of shows and roles out there and pinpoint where you might fit in. The easier you make it for casting, the more likely you’ll be called in. If you don’t have an agent, you might want to ask your acting coach or some other industry professional. The point is that you want to have a clear and realistic idea of what you will be called in for. This will also allow you to plan your wardrobe accordingly.
