High Quality Headshots Are Vital For Your Acting Portfolio

At The Photo Studio, we specialise in creating professional, high-end photography for everybody. This includes quality headshots for actors, models and everyone in between!

But just how important are professional headshots for actors and models? That’s like asking the question, “How important is your resume when applying for a job?” The short and obvious answer is very important.


1. A good headshot is chest up with natural lighting 

2. You should be looking directly at the camera, and the focus needs to be on your eyes 

3. As for clothing, think simple, nothing distracting (leave your frilly collars and neon headbands at home, please)

4. Makeup should be natural. This is not the time for a bold lip or a smokey eye 

5. There should be no logos or brands visible 

6. Less is more when it comes to retouching, a light touch should be applied to airbrushing and any other aesthetic changes

7. Props should under no circumstances make an appearance

8. And, of course, it should look like YOU! A casting director wants to see the best version of you, no fake smiles, peace signs, or blue steel stares

Put simply, your headshot could be your make or break in this industry, and a casting director might have to sift through hundreds, if not thousands, of headshots for a movie, and your headshot could be what attracts their attention.

In conclusion, getting a fantastic headshot is an investment in your business and could be the only thing standing between you and your next audition!

Our team of industry professionals know precisely how to craft that perfect headshot for your next audition – so what are you waiting for?

Have a photoshoot with us, and you might even walk out with a brand new portfolio.

We can’t wait to see you in front of the camera!
