About this actor headshot photography package

Matthew chose our very popular ‘ Get Aheadactor headshot photography package.  Get Ahead is all about helping an actor get ahead in the industry. Getting ahead, means getting more castings, resulting in more opportunities to get work. To help an actor get ahead we will create a great go-to or flagship headshot. This is the first headshot you see on Spotlight and your agent’s website. A great headshot will make a great first impression. A great headshot captures your personality, beauty, energy, and character, and your confidence radiates through it. It must represent who you are, your essence, spirit, quirks, flaws, and features. But a go-to headshot can only go so far in helping an actor get more castings. Sometimes a casting director cannot visualise an actor’s suitability for a part from their go-to headshot alone. This is why we create another 3 contrasting headshots for the actor, intending to expand the type and stretch the playing age.
