Let's get you into character!
ARE YOU AIMING TO BE ON CSI, THE GOOD WIFE OR BOARDWALK EMPIRE?
GOT A SHOW IN MIND THAT YOU THINK YOU'RE RIGHT FOR?
GOOD! Because I want to work with you on creating a number of looks during your session.
Let's have you act up!
This is a relatively new thing for New York actors - historically the 'shoot for a look' was an LA thing. Well, NOT any more! More and more actors (and their agents) want specific looks for parts they're going for or for character-types. It's small touches - slight changes in outfit or attitude. This doesn't mean stereo-typing you or 'pigeon-holing' you into a specific 'type'; what it gives you is 'ammunition' to help you with casting for specific types and characters that you play (or are hoping to play). It's also particularly good for your portfolio on Actors Access.
During our session we'll get that one, go-to, fantastic headshot that you will use for the majority of auditions and castings. But by having some alternative 'looks' - whether moody, bright, dark, geeky, nextdoor-y, sexy, lawyer-y, business-y, gothic, athletic, thuggish etc [please add your own adjectives/descriptors here!] - you'll have more of YOU to show.
