A Portfolio Session opens up possibilities

It will include the single, strong headshot that says it all, but it will also have captured all your other casting strengths if you are a versatile actor. A Chameleon. This is the type of session you need if you are a character actor who works playing many different roles. Even a very well-established actor will find this type of session useful to open up casting director’s and director’s minds to ‘other’ types of roles other than the ones they are used to you playing. It’s also really helpful if you are trying to get an agent. Maybe you are trying to break into another territory; like America. Or you are trying to move your career in another direction by showing off your ‘other’ strengths. If this sounds right then the Portfolio Session is the one for you.

What is an Actor’s Portfolio?

Portfolio

The Actor’s Portfolio is a relatively new concept and therefore everyone has their idea of what it means. For me, the looks we achieve should first and foremost serve your casting needs as an actor. A variety of looks will help create a bigger picture of your casting strengths but if you can’t play it, that there’s little point including it in the shoot. That’s what our consultation will determine at the beginning of our session

A casting director needs to be shown how versatile you can look; your agent needs the confidence to put you up for the range of parts they know you can play – if your main photo doesn’t help them do that, then a Portfolio is what you need.

Have a look at some existing Portfolios.

Will all the photos taken be on the contact sheet?
No. Anything you or I are unhappy with from a look or quality point of view will go in the trash. So you and your agent only have to agonize over the good useable images.
How many images will I have on my contact sheets?

As we will be shooting digitally that’s hard to say exactly but it’s anything from 36 to 60 useable headshots, depending on how many ‘looks’ we are trying to capture. Usually a good portfolio session gets you between 3 and 6 ‘looks’ plus your main headshot. However versatile you are that should be more than enough to show what you can do.

What if I want more than the amount of photos allocated in the Price?
You pay £20 for each extra image. This covers my time spent cropping, air brushing and grading.
Can I have the images in Black and White?
We can shoot in back and white if you’d prefer but the industry is moving more and more towards colour. The only image that you’ll need in Black and White is your main Spotlight book image as they still print the books in Black and White. I will grade your main photo to Black and White for you at no extra charge. Just request this when you select your images by letting me know which image will be your main one.
How much air-brushing do you do?
Only enough to clean up the image. If you have something on your face on the day that isn’t normally there…a spot or cold sore, grey roots that you haven’t had time to get done, or the odd stray brow hair? That will be removed. But removing too much age or weight isn’t what I do. My work is respected for producing great images that look like you. However if you want more of a publicity shot then I will happily go to town!! Depending on what you want there may be an extra charge for my time.
