[LA Headshot Photographers by Vanie]
Compare your headshot
to headshots of friends that are auditioning and working. Ask these friends to let you peek at their profiles on LA Casting or Actors Access. You may notice differences between their headshots and yours.
Lori Wilson: Nosy Neighbor / Butch Friend / BoHo
Jenny Caterina: Hipster / Love Interest / Heroine
FOR EXAMPLE, you may notice the quality of their headshots are better, or perhaps they have clearly defined marketing looks casting directors can identify.
Phoung Kubacki: Upscale Business / Outdoorsy / Creative Professional
Hannah Scott: Heroine / Girls’ Night Out / Student
Ask yourself how much you’ve invested in your headshots.
Is your investment an investment in your career, or did you save a few bucks and let your friend take your headshots? Have you properly thought through what your age range is along with your target market?
Chibuike Nwuda: Musician / Office Guy
DO YOU HAVE CHARACTER-SPECIFIC LOOKS, or are your headshots not specific?
Have you taken a “type me” class at places like Sam Christensen Studios, or worked with a career coach like Jona Xiao at Career ACTivate?
Elliotte Strange: Disney Girl / Studious Kid / Bully
Rey Laredo: Office Guy / BBQ Dad
To be competitive, make sure you don’t cut corners with your headshots. Pay a professional for quality that will stand out in a crowded market place and create a range of marketing looks that EASILY SPELL OUT your target market to casting directors.
Sabrina Kiepke: Customer Service / Best Friend Sidekick
Joel Martin-Cox: Blue Collar Dad / Hero / Upscale Business – CEO
Kat Bingham: BBQ Mom / Edgy Anti-Heroine
