The perfect headshot
What makes a great headshot?
Natural make up for females and hair off your face.
A genuine show of emotion; whatever the expression you decide on, commit to it.
Natural lighting if possible; or a light source from behind your photographer.
A recent photo that is updated regularly, especially if you change your look significantly.
A closely cropped photo of your face that clearly shows your features - can be in black & white or colour.
Remember: Your headshot should reflect your talent. Actor headshots should show emotion and versatility, model headshots can be more creative and stylised.
