Hey Guys! How's it going? Guess what - I got some new headshots! For those of you not in the biz (show biz that is), headshots are just what they sound like, shots or pictures of your head. We use them to submit for acting jobs, and if you look like the right type then the casting directors call you in for an audition. Actors should update their headshots every couple of years and I must confess that I am long overdue for some new acting headshots. So last week I had a session with a photographer here in NYC, Allessandra Carullo, and I could not be more thrilled with the results! Check them out:
The top one I'm going to use to submit for more comedic type roles and the bottom for more dramatic roles. We did the shoot in midtown Manhattan, in an industrial area near the West Side Highway. It can be a little distracting shooting outside because NYC doesn't pause just so you can do your photo shoot. People walk past the shoot (or sometimes through it!), cars honk and there's wind and dust blowing everywhere. But it's also really fun and I think you get a much more natural picture when you're a little distracted. Anyway, I think I have some fabulous new headshots and I can't wait to submit them for jobs. Fingers (or hooves) crossed that they'll help me book a ton of work! Have a great weekend everyone!
