A NOTE ON CLOTHING FOR ACTOR HEADSHOTS

OK, so this is not a competition for who wears the brightest hoodie! When preparing for a headshot session, too many actors over-burden themselves with bright colors for the sake of being bright. Headshot clothing should match the character or “look” you are going for. Start with character and when you look at your closet, the clothing that matches up with the character will become obvious. The clothing may or may not be “bright”. That is OK. The most important aspect of your actor headshot is your intention and commitment to what you are doing.
