"John Strand is my dear friend and the only photographer I would like to work with. John has shot dozens of photo shoots with me and my Family. He has directed commercials for me He has traveled the world with me. He shot all my pictures in my book, Total Swimming. If I need him to help me he is there. I was on a cruise ship and needed something put together in a couple hours for a speech and he got it to me in time via satellite connection. I was in China and he did the same thing. He has always come through for me. I have to say… you are the man!"

 The Best Headshots Require the Best Photographer

In researching headshot photography in Los Angeles, you must find a photographer that will capture your best side. The best headshots aren’t about just showing who you are — they are about showing what you’re capable of being. The best headshots reveal potential. We have taken 1,000’s of headshots for actors, beginners and pros, as well as celebrities, and have provided services for corporate and small businesses throughout Los Angeles. We have photographed people from all walks of life, and there is usually a different atmosphere that a performer emanates during a shoot compared to non-actors. This atmosphere stems from the fact that the entertainment industry demands a quality image that will represent the performer as their essential marketing tool. The actor will have a mere hour or so with their headshot photographer to prepare and capture the winning shots that must last for at least a year— especially considering the money invested in the project. Obviously, this is an important event in an actor’s career. It can also be a pressure-filled one. Much of that pressure can be naturally alleviated by gaining confidence in the photography professional you hire to provide you with the results required for headshots. Therefore, it is recommended to research headshot photographer experts, currently producing top-level work in your area.

I am a trained actor. I have studied intensely and understand the actor.

I will not lose the moment we all cherish in this real but imaginary world at the same time.

I sometimes will use acting exercises to calm my clients. Alexander technique and others.

 

An Important Consideration

Once you have successfully cleared the research hurdle, it will become clear why you need to hire a team with a photographer you can trust. If you can’t meet with the headshot photographer in advance, make sure that you have spoken to them on the phone about their style, and to get a sense of their personality. The most important question you should ask the potential headshot photographer is: “How would you light me?” Let them see you, whether in person or by relaying a picture. A great headshot photography expert should be able to tell by the architecture of your face, your body, and your personality exactly what type of lighting will best convey your look on film (or digital). Then, take a look at their previous work and try to imagine meeting one of their other clients in person. What would you expect them to look like? What do you think their personality would be? Headshot photography should convey some character. What characters can you imagine that person performing? If the lighting is poor, then you will get that homey, unprofessional portrait feel — a kind of blandness that seems to portray nothing. If the headshot photographer’s style is unique, ask yourself if you like their photography style.

Get Your Expression Into Your Headshot

Getting the best headshots or head shots…the best headshot results with a headshot photographer ought to be no different. Perhaps headshots are so telling because directors realize that this in itself is a small performance. The thing that separates the audience experience from that of the solitary camera is something paradoxical with actors. Actors often feel more comfortable with a captive audience, and are easier with the single onlooker that the still camera represents. But this is no time to get stage fright. If you can do it in a small Los Angeles headshot photography studio, then you can do it with a much larger audience in Los Angeles. Relax, take a three-quarter stance, angle your eyes and grin. A successful headshot photograph needs nothing more than for you to bring along your attitude.
