I follow the tips from casting agencies on how to take actor head shots that can get their attention. a director considering you for a role for film or theater, looks at your pictures to see if they reveal your character. so, don’t go for a mugshot. your headshot should say something about you. first, you need to feel relaxed. then express something with your eyes, your smile. let the viewer be able to peek into your mind and get intrigued. you need to let the image scream so insistently that they wanna grab the phone and call you.

your headshot is about you. nobody else. sharpfocus photography helps you in this self-discovery journey by capturing the inner you. you look at the camera but act like it does not exist. you’re in your world. a world without boundaries. when you feel that way, you are the real you. you look composed and it shows in your snapshots. it’s about you. it’s about your face and the story that it tells. you should look like who you are – including your flaws. your headshot should show your present look, with minimal makeup and basic retouching.

sharpfocus photography strives to show you as you are – natural. just you. the photo session lasts one hour and you get over 100 great shots that you could not top by using a renowned photographer , at a much heftier price. your problem will be ‘oh my gosh, I have so many great ones to choose from!’. but ‘it’s a good problem to have’.

if you’re looking for a photographer in dc to shoot your actor’s headshots for an audition, sharpfocus may be your ticket to an audition.
