HEAD SHOTS BLOOPER GALLERY

HSB01

 

I needed new head shots.  I also knew I’d be shaving my beard for the Tell-Tale Heart shoot.  So I scheduled a head shot photo shoot right before the Tell-Tale film shoot in order to schedule my shave in the middle of the photo shoot and get a bearded and a clean shaved 8X10 pic.

To show I am a versatile actor.  I can play bearded and smooth cheeked fellas.

The shoot went pretty well and I have lots of nice options to choose from.  But in a two hour session with hundreds of clicks of the camera, some unfortunate shots are about to happen.

So I thought it would be fun to share some of these photo blunders in a Head Shot Blooper Gallery.  Enjoy.

Don’t scowl.  Not likely to make a usable actor’s head shot…

Every actor should know how to find their light…

It also helps if the picture is taken after the groomer leaves the frame….
