One of my favorite things as a photographer is shooting head shots for actors. First, they are fun and second, they are so comfortable in front of the camera. I’ve worked with Eddie before and we worked on shots to get him gigs like a detective, cop etc. It worked. It’s important to all actors to keep your photos current, have a lot of options and different looks.
Remember this is your calling card. An agent will decide in 1 second if they think you may be right and that photo your roommate took in the backyard will get you noticed but it won’t be in a good way. It is really important to present your in the best possible way. Choices by casting directors are made in seconds and your shot has to touch them. It has to speak to them. Money may be tight but if you don’t have great shots you’ll never be the actor you want to be. This is your business card! I can’t be a photographer without a camera and this is the same for an actor. So be serious when it comes to your shots. This time we worked on the “nice guy”, the “boyfriend” and body shots. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
Eddie is great so keep your eye out for him! Eddie will tell you…”Those pics have helped so much, I’ve gotten called in for more TV shows this season than any season before, so its no coincidence.”
