First impressions count and your photograph is the first thing a casting director will see so it is important to supply them with an honest representation of yourself.
We know how important it is for actors to get their photos right, however this can lead to stress and tension in the shoot. Our photographer will put you at ease and work to ensure that your passion and creativity comes through rather your anxiety!
We will take approximately 100 shots during the session from different angles and lighting situations. You can change your clothing as many times as you like.
Allow 2 hours of studio time or 3 if you include the makeup artist option.
The next step is choosing your images. If necessary, basic retouching is included at no additional cost, on the images you have selected. Digital post production can help to lessen or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, etc.
Once completed the images you have selected are prepared to the proper resolution, they are then burned onto a CD. Alternatively we can email them to you. Prints can be ordered and collected from the studio. Any prints sent by post are at an additional cost and sent by special delivery.
All studio sessions include:
- Ability to review all images as they are taken
- Uploading of web contact sheet in colour and B/W with email links to you and your agent
- Images downloaded to your agent
- Print ordering options
2 Hours Studio time (3 if booking our makeup artist) plus:
|any print to 10×8 or digital file||£55|
|2 prints to 10×8 or digital files||£110|
|4 prints to 10×8 or digital files||£190|
|additional studio time (30 mins)||£30|
What to wear
Keep it simple is our advice. Bring a selection of clothing. Think about how you want to be cast. Textured / sculptured clothing can add interest without being distracting. We would advise no patterns, prints or flowers and avoid clothing that clings tightly to you. Also don’t choose anything with a high neck.
Please ensure your outfits are clean without any marks or defects. For colour photos, choose a colour that is flattering to your skin colour and eyes. Please don't wear jewellery as this will date the shot and be distracting. Avoid wearing white and very pale colours but rather pick striking colours that will compliment your complexion, hair and eye colour.
Avoid bright (red) lipstick and keep makeup tasteful and subtle avoiding strong shadows / colours around the eyes.
Wear something that is you; keep it more casual and relaxed, whilst suggesting generally how you want to be cast.
TV / Film
For TV or Film your outfit needs to be a little more sophisticated and intimate without being too suggestive. Tops with a V-neck or open collar are ideal.
Casting directors need to visualise how they are able to cast you into a role easily and so your clothing, makeup and hair styling shouldn't distract them from you.
Please bring a selection of clothing that is largely casual and that suits the skin tone of the child. Again please avoid prints, patterns or flowers.
