As an actor, performer, or business professional your headshot is a key aspect of advertisement and marketing!
Headshots should be an accurate representation of how you look. One of the most important aspects of a headshot is natural camera makeup that accentuates your features without distracting or taking away - for actors a clean “no makeup look” is even more of a necessity. Professional photography involves high quality gear and lighting that makes texture, tones and inconsistencies extremely noticeable. Therefore, the makeup for headshots requires an understanding of color matching and correction, lighting, flash and glare that most people are not familiar with.
If you are investing in professional photos to represent yourself in your industry don't make the mistake of skipping over professional styling!
