One of the best things you can do to support a young actor is help them get professional headshots. These are the photos that will be in front of casting directors. They will determine whether the actor gets the chance to audition for a role.
Casting directors look for different things depending on the role, so it’s important for actors to have a few different expressions in their photos. That way they can easily submit photos for the roles they really want, whether it’s comedy, drama, or action.
Expression is everything in headshots, so I guide actors throughout their session, based on their desired roles.
Todd is a talented young actor. He performs in community theatre around New Hampshire, and he has his sights set on the movies. His mom surprised him with a gift certificate for a Headshot Session for Christmas. These are his favorite images. I can’t wait to see where Todd goes!
