Why the $200 Headshot Doesn’t Work

Why the $200 Headshot Doesn’t Work

[Professional Headshots by Vanie] I recently had a phone conversation with an actress who had just spent $150 on headshots, but her agents were not happy with the shots.  After seeing them, they suggested she get headshots taken by one of the photographers on their preferred list.

my approach

Headshot Photographers Los Angeles

| I do what I do because I want to help you succeed. I want to empower you with the tools you need to market yourself (read this article on popular headshot marketing looks in your age group). My goal is NOT to give you the most beautiful

headshots in LA

but instead to give you images with personality.

I aim to give you professional headshots in Los Angeles that specifically showcase your range without pushing you against type.

My goal is to figure out your stereotype, your essence and to capitalize on it. I do this by consulting you, by directing you every step of the way and by producing specific marketing looks with an emotional range from theatrical to commercial.

“Headshots are often the first impression casting directors have of actors. They see a thumbnail for a brief moment as they scroll through a large volume of submissions, and as an actor, you hope something about your headshot makes you stand out.

Knowing which characters you’re right for, as well as having a grasp of your overall brand, allows you to best market yourself as an actor. But how do you translate all this to your headshots? Poyey took time from her busy shooting schedule to give actors some guidance on the process.”
