This is something people really need to think about. Because, at the end of the day, if you’re not a professional photographer, it will never be the same. It’s not that you don’t know how to take pictures. It’s just that a professional has taken model headshots, actor headshots, corporate headshots, and others thousands of times, and maybe you have taken pictures of landscapes and selfies. The experience factor, and the difference in equipment used, is always something to keep in mind.
When talking about models, they, as much as actors, need to show all of their best angles and facets. Here at Headshots by The Light Committee, I have worked with many models and actors. I have learned what agents, casting directors, etc. like and what they don’t. Put your trust in an award-winning photographer to give you the image you need to get wherever you want.
