“Having been 253lbs and standing at only 5’4” short, the LAST thing I ever wanted to do was have my photo taken. Even after having lost over 100lbs, I still saw a fat boy in the mirror. I wasn’t booking work with my near 10 year old headshot so it was finally time to bite the bullet.
I attended Francis Hills’ seminar “How To Get The Most Out Of Your Headshots” and loved his approach to his sessions. How it was a collaboration between photographer and subject; an ongoing conversation between artists. And that’s exactly what it was! From the moment I walked in the door, Francis and his team made me feel and look like a million bucks! My inhibitions melted away and I started to shine through. With clear direction, an expert eye, and deep understanding of how to work with actors, Francis was able to capture the “ME” that I hadn’t seen in a long time!
And when he showed me the photos, through a few tears, I finally stopped seeing the fat boy I was so used to, and finally saw the fun, goofy, ATTRACTIVE actor I am! I finally have photos I am round to bring to auditions and say “Hey world, THIS is me! I’m ready to rock! Are you?”"
