I had the pleasure of working with a wonderful actress, Kady, over the holidays while she was visiting family. The sister of one of my summer 2010 brides Kady needed to refresh her head shots for her agent to update her look and get a few shots with a little bit of snap to them. The trait of a really good head shot is to show the subject how they look on their best day (not a glamour shots style photo) but yet make an impression and stand out to casting agents looking through pages of thumbnails online.
So even though Kady mostly needed just the head and shoulders shots – we still did the entire routine for a head shot session. A few outfit changes, shots ranging from tight cropped head shots to 3/4 length shots, and working on both commercial and legit looks.
As for pop, well I think we nailed that one.
While doing professional head shots will never take the place of weddings as my ultimate photographic passion, it’s still a lot of fun and if you need to freshen up your portfolio you can find more details on my site for Professional Actor and Model Head Shots in Denver.
