August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #130: Format for Your Headshot

Tip of the Week

Having a proper headshot is crucial to your acting career. The headshot should be a black and white 8x10 photograph. Commercial headshots should frame only your face from the shoulders up. You should be smiling, showing a little of your teeth. It's not a bad idea to have an alternate headshot as well that shows off your body. This picture can be more casual. Once you have a headshot, make sure that it evolves with your acting career. If you change hairstyles or gain or lose weight, make sure to have new headshots taken.
