What happens AFTER your headshot session? Now you select the shots that will get you the results you want.
Once you’ve taken your headshots, your photographer will send them to you.
Picking the right headshot is important.
Here are the general guidelines:
Remove the ones you don’t like at all. There will be some poor shots - you were blinking, talking, doing some weird thing with your eye or mouth, etc. Take those out. Why look at them again or let anyone else look at them? I hate looking at bad pictures of myself - it leaves me feeling unattractive. So why look at those that are just BAD ever again?
It can be helpful to group them into relevant groupings: smiling, friendly, serious, etc.
For an actor (and yes, for real estate agents, etc.) your headshot is your calling card. It’s job is to let people know what you look like.
So the #1 most important thing about a headshot is that IT LOOKS LIKE YOU! It should look like you on a good day. I know that may sound obvious, but we aren’t all comfortable with our own looks, and that can sometimes get in our way. When I look at my own headshot, I easily see things I would change about my face if I could - things I will not list here. But the thing is, it looks like me.
The best thing anyone can ever say about your headshot is, “You look just like your headshot!”
So how do you get a headshot that looks like you?
