Haas Photography Offers Actors Exclusive Advice On Procuring The Best Headshots

(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 22, 2009 ) Are you an actor or performer who needs great headshots to help your career take off? The right photos can set you apart from the pack, while the wrong photos can make you look unprofessional and undesirable. One of the most crucial aspects to obtaining the right headshots is finding a fabulous photographer. A professional photographer has to ability to truly capture you - your "look," your personality, and you ability.

Luckily, the folks at Haas Photography in Beaver Dam, WI, have offered some amazing advice on how to select the right photographer for this task, in in addition to tips on what's hot in the industry right now. Here are some tips to not only help you find the right photographer, but to end up with an amazing finished product.

Only Work With The Pros - "Make sure to choose a professional photographer for your headshots. There are plenty of ads on Craigslist and in the classifieds that advertise free headshots by amateur photographers who are looking to expand their portfolios. While these may sound like tempting offers, the finished product usually isn't worth the price of gas it took you to get there. Plus, young actresses need to exercise caution when responding to any of these ads. Many times, these so called ads for photographers are actually lures for criminals to attract young women."

Demand Those Samples - "When it comes to selecting a photographer, be sure to ask for samples of work that they have done for other actors. Never simply blindly select a photographer before really getting an idea of his or her style of work. You may be competing with hundred of other actors when pursuing a role or going on an audition; thus, it is crucial that your headshots really stand out. Select photographers whose samples really catch your eye, without being overly flashy."

Get With The Program - "It is imperative that you familiarize yourself with the current industry standards. While the standard size of headshots is still 8X11, the trend in the industry has moved from black and white to color. Or, specifically, high-resolution color. Furthermore, it used to be common for actors to order hundreds of copies right off the bat. Today, this is pretty unnecessary, since more and more headshot submissions are done online prior to an audition. Luckily, there are more outlets available to actors to have their headshots printed locally. Gone are the days where headshots had to be ordered online by the hundreds."

As you can see, obtaining fantastic actor's headshots are as simple as finding the right photographer, and knowing exactly what you want. Any parting advice from the folks at Haas? "Go find some auditions!"
