A few months ago I had the pleasure and fun to do Eddie Alfano’s head shots. We were going for a particular look–he wanted CSI or that hard New York cop look. So we did that and a bit more. He looks menacing in some of these shots but don’t let that fool you, he’s really a funny and nice guy. So how fabulous is that he has now booked CSI New York and a robber on Cougar Town! I can’t wait to see them both and glad our work took him in the right direction. Elton Bolden of Tilmar Talent knew what needed to be done and it was successful.
If you are getting into acting and starting your head shots it’s really important to have options and know what you want and what you are good at.
- Don’t let your photos be over touched up.
- A guy has to look like a guy and yes, we all have pores in our skin.
- Keep the focus on you. Artistic photos are great but remember an agent or casting director will probably spend less than 3 seconds looking at your shots. Make sure your eyes connect!
- Have options! I can’t say this enough. Age range, soft looks and hard looks, the more the better!
Congrats again Eddie, the DVR is ready!
