We did some great headshots recently with the wonderful Darci who is a teenage actress signed with Purple Giraffe Casting, a children's and young adult acting agents and management company based in Liverpool. They look after a big bunch of really talented kids, managing their early careers and helping them get cast for all kinds of roles from West End Musicals to Feature Films and British Dramas and everything inbetween.
Actors need good headshots which give a really true life representation of what they look like as it is the first thing a casting director sees. The key for us at Myfoto is not to over edit or use overly complicated lighting setups as its not a model shoot but an actors headshot. And with teens and children we need them to look as natural as possible while still bringing out the best of them
During Darci's shoot we did a range of shots in the studio and then using our amazing mill space above our studio we mixed ambient window light with a few blips of strobe light to really make the images pop.
