One of the most enjoyable aspects of being a commercial photographer in cheshire is that I get to meet lots of different people from different backgrounds and in different jobs. As well as providing headshot photography sessions to corporate and commercial clients I also get hired to provide headshot photography for other professionals such as actors and dancers.
Headshots are often an actor’s first point of contact with potential employers, either through the traditional printed format or via online profiles and agencies. It is therefore really important that the images that they use represent them in the best possible way for the job they are going for. It is a good idea for an actor to have some variety in their portfolio of images so that they can be selective when providing an image for a specific role. The industry standard is to have a very ‘neutral’ image (no smiling or other obvious facial expressions – a bit boring really if you ask me!) but this can be supplemented by other images that show the range of an actor’s ‘looks’ or a specific ‘look’ if they are going for a particular role.
There is an increasing number of people applying for acting jobs these days and in such a saturated market it is important to stand out from the crowd, we look to provide actors with images that will enhance their chance of being noticed and get them into auditions so that they can get to do their stuff. Here are some examples of some headshots that we have provided for actors and performers who have come to the cloverleaf images studio for a headshot session:
