Providing acting headshot or actor’s headshots to my friends in the business is how Ck headshots Atlanta originally started. I was active in the theatre and film scene while working as a freelance photographer. I cast films and plays myself and worked regularly with friends and casting directors to do the same. Naturally friends came to me looking for headshots. What started as a friendly enterprise, focused on friends, grew to include executives, authors, entrepreneurs, musicians, and so on.
Actors headshots are in many ways specific to the industry. Actors headshots really have one purpose: To present oneself honestly and intelligently to a casting director. Casting directors don’t like excess and they can smell amatuer from a good distance. Knowing that an actor is serious enough to hire a decent photographer says something in itself. But there is more to it than this. There are some “rules” so to speak for what’s expected in an acting headshot: not too much make-up, no crazy jewelry, a true likeness, a particular crop, and so on. I go over a lot of this throughout the blog. Please check them out and view some of my samples below.
