headshots

What should I wear?

Ah, the age old question. None of the old rules apply anymore (no prints or patterns, etc), though there are still some guidelines for making yourself look super hot on camera. Generally I like to tell people to think of the roles you'd be going out for when choosing headshot clothing. Don't wear a costume, but wear similar colors or styles.

And unless you're getting your hair professionally styled for every audition, it's just not going to look right unless YOU do it. Read more-->

In fact, I kind of suck at having my picture taken. I wanted my photographers to pull me out of my shell & help me relax...
