Harrison: Student Actor

Harrison is at University studying to become an actor.   While he’s there he’s wanting to attend auditions and get himself an agent for when he graduates.  Perhaps the most important thing in any actor’s arsenal when it comes to casting calls, is their headshot.  A good headshot, showing how you look, not in a fake way, but on your best day, is essential.

You don’t want your headshot to be retouched to the point that you’re barely recognisable.  Basically, your headshot should be what you’d look like if you drank nothing but water, ate nothing but salad  and went to bed at 8pm for a month.  It’s you, but it’s the best you.    Your headshot is your business card & your first impression.  It’s far too important to be using something that doesn’t do you justice.  I may be biased, but you need to be looking for a portrait photographer who specialises in headshots.  Someone who speaks to casting directors and agents on a regular basis to keep up with market trends.  If you’re interested, I know a good studio…

It’s great meeting young actors like Harrison.  Keen & eager to learn. Ready to take onboard any help to further their career.  I’m looking forward to hearing from him when he secures his first meaty role…

A Few Updates from True North Studio…

 

We’ve been shooting a lot of headshots, both for business & actors recently.  Loads of people must have had it on the their to-do lists over lockdown.  If you’re interested in either, please get in touch through the Contact link above.  Fiona has been preparing the Newborn Photography side of things that she’ll be launching at some point during September.  If you know someone who is currently expecting and has a due date in the 2nd half of September, drop us an email. We’ll be looking for models 🙂 .

We’ve also had a lot of family portrait sessions, with a load more booked for the 2nd half of summer.  Outdoor portraits are popular this year – even considering how bad the weather has been this summer.   If you’d like to see what that’s all about, check out our Lifestyle Portraits.  It’s certainly been a busy & exciting Summer so far and isn’t showing any signs of letting up – especially with the introduction of Fiona’s Newborn Portraits.  If you’re interested in booking in, either for headshots or family portraits, feel free to drop us an email.  Just click on ‘Contact Us’ at the top of the page.
