Actors and Model portfolios
At Jo Rutherford Photography we offer portfolios , updates and headshot sessions for actors , models , dancers both grown ups and children . Its important to document and update your headshots and portfolio regularly , and for children its even more vital – as little ones grow and change so quickly and you need their images to reflect what they look like at that time .
If you are looking to apply to a Model Agency then we can do a simple model portfolio session , with a clean backdrop , and a range of images for you , headshot , three quarter length and full length images . These should always be simple clean images with minimal make up and hair styling so that Casting directors and the Agency can see you at your best , they want a ‘blank canvas’.
Actors headshots need to have a range of facial expressions to show your range , and do tend to be very emotive and have great eye contact – we can do colour and black and white images depending on your requirements.
Tips for a great session
- Check with your Agency (if you have one) what updates are needed . Is it simple headshots , do you need colour or black and white? Do you need prints or digital images?
- Keep clothing simple , a plain t shirt , in black or white is always useful to bring along. Feel free to bring a couple of outfits and accessories such as a scarf or hat
- If your child normally wears glasses then bring them along – we can photograph them with glasses and without if required
- Bring a brush and any hair accessories for last minute adjustments – try not to get haircuts too close to the session
