NOTES OR YOUR SHOOT
* Please bring a selection of different tops/shirts for variety.
Preferably plain colours, nothing too busy, or strange patterns or with logos.
* Avoid low cut and high cut tops (such as low off-the-shoulder and turtle necks) Plain fitted t-shirts, collared shirts and tank tops are good.
* If using makeup or styling hair, please keep as natural looking as possible. Nothing too stylish or glamorous. The idea is to look like the best version of your natural self.
* If using moisturiser, makeup or other skin products, please avoid any that are too oily or glossy as this will create too much shine from the reflections of the lights.
From our Advice section
Do I need head shots?
YES! Your head shot is so important, it is your calling card, it’s usually the first thing an agent, manager or casting director will look at, so it needs to stand out. A selfie, DIY or friend-with-a camera usually won’t be good enough. Invest in your career and get professional acting head shots taken. In your shots, you should look like your natural self and the images must represent your unique energy and brand as an actor. Also consider your choices of clothing and hairstyle when you get head shots taken. What do you want your shots to say about you?
