Every On-Camera Talent Needs A Good Headshot!

Here are two simple techniques to help you prepare. This is where some of the acting skills we have been working on will come into play. You want to think about the type of photo you want to create or add to your portfolio. That of a carefree fun loving kid, a bit on the dramatic side, maybe a little hard edge or trouble-maker?
