Actor Headshots: A One-Day Workshop with Brad Buckman (One session)
- May 12, 2018
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Actors would rather visit the dentist than shoot new headshots, yet their first stop in Hollywood is getting new professional pictures. In this one-day workshop, students will learn how to create striking photographs that will help their clients get to work, and consequently help grow their photography business.
Much more than just a picture of someone’s face, the headshot must work to capture an essence of the performer, as well as the casting director’s eye. Learn what defines a Hollywood headshot, and what representation and casting directors want to see in a photo. Students will discover how to direct and pull the best from their client, how to develop a personal style and their own image workflow, and how to manage and market their photography business. We’ll discuss working with a wide range of personalities and levels of experience, from those new to acting to accomplished performers with decades of experience. Other topics will include photo processing, retouching, natural light, studio light and mixed lighting.
The course will include an afternoon shooting session where participants will take real headshots of working Hollywood actors.
Dates: Saturday, May 12, 10 am – 6 pm
Enrollment Limit: 15 students
Skill/Experience Level: Students are required to bring their own DSLR, a strong working knowledge of their camera, and an enthusiasm for photographing people.
Tuition: $275 + $50 model and equipment fee
