As a Detroit kids theatre acting headshots photographer, I am blessed to be able to work so many talented kids throughout the Metro Detroit area. Over the years, one of the most important things to I’ve learned with actors and models is to never judge the amount of talent by the size of the package. This is absolutely essential when working with a child actor. Just like their full-size acting counterparts, a GREAT headshot is a MUST!
There are a lot of items that work together to make a great kids acting head shot. Here are my Top 3 Tips to consider based on our experience in providing professional child actor head shots:
- PROFESSIONAL – You are a professional and your headshot must match suit. There can’t be anything amateurish about it.
- MAINSTREAM – You need to have a mainstream look that will appeal to as many people as possible.
- STYLE – You have to be properly styled and natural.
The formula is simple: PROFESSIONAL + MAINSTREAM + STYLE = GREAT HEADSHOT! Of course, it is not always that easy to actually put together the right pieces. But, it every case, it is always beneficial to have a professional makeup artist/stylist on-set during the shoot to work with you and help primp hair and clothes in between each shot to help ensure you look your best!
Kids Acting Headshots Tip: Kids head shots need to be updated about every six months. If they are very young (under 5), you may want to consider updating them even more often since their appearance changes so quickly. This can get quite costly which is why we provide a discount for coming back for updated images within six months. There are a few other photographers that do the same nationally.
I recently had the incredible opportunity to work with Kristian for his first theatre acting headshots. He was absolutely amazing to work with and we were able to capture a number brilliant images for his portfolio. I had a very difficult time selecting only a couple for a session sneak peek, but selected a couple of my favorites to include below. Which one is your favorite? Please be sure to leave a comment below to let him know!
