Actor Headshots

To show photo viewers such as casters or performance directors, the real you in the character you would like to show in a fun atmosphere.

I use communicative techniques to capture what is unique about you and the character you would like to show. During the session, I will help you to bring out the ‘look’ (via expression and body language) to portray the character you would like to give to a casting person, director or to any photo viewer.

Many times actors need a headshot photo particular to the role they are applying for.

They also ask for a set of headshots to show the different characters they can portray. We all have gestures and expressions that are unique to us and the technique I use, helps to bring these out.

People have also used one of their actor headshot pics to use in their Facebook profile picture.

What can be expected?

What you can expect from such a session is that from the moment you enter the AldoPics studio, is that I will begin to make you feel comfortable and engage you in conversation. 

At all times during the session, we will enjoy the photography session, where we create a friendly good mood/vibe during the session. This is one of the reasons why you would look better in the photos taken by me, than you thought you would.
I am known to be very good at making you feel relaxed and comfortable, and to help you draw expressions and emotions for great actor headshot photos.

Your job is to turn up and have fun and be silly with me. It’s not about just being serious all the time, but to focus on what you’d like to express but always to have fun and enjoy ourselves.

A great photo session with Aldo! His patience, jokes, suggestions and directions made me feel at ease to try out different face expressions and get comfortable in front of the camera. Very happy with the headshots!
