I was booked by the Chairperson from an acting society from Manchester Metropolitan University to provide headshots for their members. We had several meetings to go over everything in the run up to the shoot.
Myself and the actors had great fun during these shoots, with nothing but positivity flying around during and after the shoot. It was a huge learning curve for myself, but I am used to working in a fast paced setting!
This photoshoot was set up to be a drop in session, with each actor getting around 10 minutes per person which doesn’t seem like a long time, but was enough time to get the shots we needed. I would talk them all through the process and show them previews to give them the confidence in themselves that they are killing it! For most, this was the first time in front of a camera in this manor but they all seemed so natural. This is not my preferred format of shoot, I would of preferred to have more time with each actor but with having limited time and 28 actors to photograph I am super happy with the results, and if you are booking an individual shoot, you will have between 1-2 hours depending on your needs, but as you can see, a lot can be done in a short amount of time!
Since releasing the photos to the actors, they are over the moon with the results, and it is great to see them being posted on social media getting great responses from their friends! I really hope these headshots give you the edge when applying for acting roles and secure some great jobs!
Headshots are great for anyone, whether you are a professional, actor, graduate or simply applying for jobs. Having a professional headshot really brings out your personality for it shine to your employers! They are great for a header on your CV, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram or even to send to your parents/grandparents!
Feel free to drop me an email and we can discuss your requirements and get you booked in so you can secure great jobs in the future!
