What is a Look?

When you work with a professional headshot photographer in New York City, you’ll have the opportunity to build your modeling portfolio with pictures that feature a variety of looks. It is important to showcase an assortment of photos in your portfolio so that casting agents will be better able to envision you in their upcoming project. This is why you’ll want to work with a headshot photographer that allows you to display a number of looks during your photo shoot.

A look refers to the overall aesthetic of the photo shoot created by elements such as hair, makeup, clothing, setting, style, and lighting technique. On a modeling job with a headshot photographer, your look will be determined by the team behind-the-scenes and will be unique to the product or service you are trying to sell in the image. When you are working with a headshot photographer to create your portfolio, you will be responsible for coming up with your own looks unless you use styling services.
