You need one great photo or four “looks” for different markets in color.
The four looks you’ll need are as follows:
- Personality Shot: This photo shows who you really are.
- Commercial Shot: You should smile with teeth and wear bright, warm colors. (No black!)
- Film/TV Shot: Be realistic. Who could you play in a daytime or primetime TV series or Film? This can be edgy, funny, racy, goofy, or dramatic—but must be full of character and your personality. It’s important to know where you fit in because that’s how you get hired!
- Theater Shot: a serious headshot or three-quarter length.
