Tips for a Great Headshot

For actors, actresses, models, and performing artists, having a collection of professional headshots is absolutely essential to getting your foot in the door. At Joyce Anderson Photography, we specialize in fashion photography, portrait photography, and corporate headshots at our photography studio in Manhattan.

When you go to a photography studio for a headshot session, you will need to bring your own outfits. You should bring two upscale outfits, two casual outfits in solid colors, and a business suit. Bright colors can distract from the model's appearance, so we recommend bringing garments of darker colors. Look through a magazine and clip some of your favorite headshots; you can bring these to the photography studio to show your photographer what kind of look you want.
