What Kind of Headshots Do You Need?
Acting and Modeling is a business. Like any business, to be successful you need to be precise with your goals. Everything you invest money on needs to have a purpose. We understand this at Innovated Captures so before we setup your appointment, we need to know what the headshot is for to give you the best return of investment.
It is important for us to know what the headshots are for so we can plan accordingly since some of these headshot styles involve studio lights, or specific locations.

For Actor Casting
The headshots that you print to give to Casting Directors when auditioning. It is paramount that you look like your headshot! During a session for these headshots, we will take some Theatrical and some Commercial headshots. Visit the blog to know the difference.. These can either be taken in studio or outdoor. Most of the background will be blurred and cropped to focus on your eyes. Lighting will be even with barely any shadows. Simplicity is key here.
Also called “Print Casting, Fashion, or Advertising” these headshots are to show casting or an agency how you look under a photographers studio lighting. The shadows will tend to be deep to accentuate features, also called “fashion lighting”. Our take on the model portfolio is not to have heavy make up so that you still resemble the headshot. These sessions are studio only. Your agency may also require full body shots, please find out what your agency requires before booking an appointment.
Most online acting profiles allow multiple headshots. One that you may want to add to your collection are shots of you representing a character. These shots tend to do better on location where the outfit and location fits with the role. This type of session will need some location planning and tends to be a wider crop. This should not be your primary headshot, use this only as additional photos. This style also works very well for musician profiles.

What sets us apart? Simply…we know what casting wants.

Many photographers have their own artistic vision, however your headshots need to be about you. A successful headshot should prioritize drawing the viewer to your eyes and be a story about you, not the technical or artistic prowess of the photographer. While backgrounds and settings are cool, it also becomes a distraction. The most sucessful headshots are accurate and simple. At Innovated Captures, the priority is producing headshots that represent you in the best light.
