Headshots are the first thing that a casting director will see of you. It is your first impression. There is no second chance to make a first impression. Headshots should always highlight the eyes. Eye contact is very important in a first impression! Headshots need to show you at your best, unique to you and the image you are trying to convey, giving an overview of your style and the images you wish to project.
Once the headshots have gotten the attention of a casting director, a creative and diversified PORTFOLIO will keep them interested. Your portfolio should reflect your personality and a full range of your emotions. It is the presentation of both headshots and portfolio that can mean the difference between wanting a job and getting a job.
