Taking Model Headshots Yourself vs. Professional Headshots

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.

The Key to Success for Model Headshots

Models need to know how to move in front of the camera. They need to know how and when to look at the camera. Also, how to seduce an audience with just a movement of their eyes. In some cases they even need to learn how to act like someone or something they are not. But it’s all part of their profession. It’s also part of a professional photographer’s work collaborate with a model on these things, so they can get the best headshots for them to send to modelling agencies.

Models need to learn to work alongside their photographer, so the finished photos are great and highly marketable. The better the photographer they decide to work with, the better the results they will get.

In a world where settling for poor smartphone quality photos is common, working with a professional photographer that has excellent gear and software can be the difference to help you stand apart. Put yourself in a better position to get the job from that modeling agency you like so much by hiring Headshots by The Light Committee.

Finding a good photographer to work with can be difficult. But, it’s an important thing to research and not just settle upon the first photograph you find or that calls you back. I’ve been hired to do many reshoots for clients that first went elsewhere and got photos that were not good. Great photos require extensive knowledge about using high-end cameras and lenses, high-quality lighting, good post production, and more.
