I did some head shots for the lovely Sabrina this past year. She plans to dip her feet in the industry so she needed some head shots to get her started. I’m by far not an expert on getting into the entertainment industry; however, my clients have kindly educated me on a few things over the years. And I’ll gladly share if it will help anyone. So hopefully these few tips will help lead you in the right direction. If you are trying to get into the industry, something to keep in mind is pilot season. Pilot season is typically January-April and then again in August-October…this is when you want to get your head shot in the hands of casting directors for upcoming series. So keep this in mind when getting your head shots…you want to have images in hand before these time periods! And if you are looking for a place to start, follow Sande Alessi Casting on Facebook. A client directed me to them awhile back, and they are wonderful about posting their upcoming casting needs. Another resource (in the Temecula Valley area) is Star Kidz Academy. I have done head shots for a couple of their talents, and the parents seem very pleased with their experience with the academy. If anything, it is a great way to boost a child’s confidence, and get their feet wet to see if acting is something they really enjoy. And as with any adventure…do your research!
Here are a few images that we grabbed of Sabrina…your eyes are gorgeous girl. Don’t ever forget it!
