If you are an actor and trying to build a reputation for yourself, having a proper headshot taken is a must.
It can be tough to compete with thousands of other actors in a city when you don’t stand out from the crowd. As an actor, headshots should be an investment in your future, which means you should spend the money to get it done professionally so that your investment pays off.
We’ve been doing actor photography for many years in Guelph, Ontario, which you can see on our headshots page.
Stephen Graybill, pictured here, is one of many actors we’ve photographed at our studio. He’s starred in the critically acclaimed TV show Big Little Lies with Reese Witherspoon, and also in Law and Order: SVU and The Wire.
When having your headshot taken you need to make sure you look your best so that you can showcase the headshot proudly for years to come. Think about what you want to wear and how you want to portray yourself to the world. Good headshot photographers will be able to offer their opinion on what looks good for you so be sure to ask them when getting your photoshoot done.
Its generally a good idea to bring a couple of different outfits to a photoshoot so that you have choices on which look you like best afterwards. For actors it is usually best to dress casual with a nice non-wrinkled shirt. Actor headshots can also be done outside for a unique look.
The point of getting your headshot done is to show off your true personality to the world in an photograph. That means you should relax and just be yourself. Smile or don’t smile, its up to you, depending on how you want to portray yourself.

Finding a professional headshot photographer can greatly improve your chances of finding your dream job.
The first thing people see when they view your business profile is your headshot. Having a high-quality headshot portrait makes you appear professional and gives employers a strong first impression of you. For reference, see some our professional headshots.
If you work in the entertainment industry then you understand that actor headshots and model headshots are vital for landing a job. Agencies are looking at hundreds of images per day and you need to be able to stand out from the others.
Finding the right actor headshot photographer can take you from being unknown to successful within days.
Take for example this testimonial from Jake, an actor from Ontario, Canada who saw success within a day of posting his new professional headshot by Trina online:
“I had an audition last week for the World Championships of Performing Arts, which is basically like the Olympics but for performance, and the first thing they said to me at my audition was that I had a great headshot. I got an email back from them yesterday, and I was picked to represent Canada in the acting category at the competition! So that means I’ll be going to Hollywood this summer to compete with countries all over the world!”
Jake goes on to say:
“I posted my headshot on a website frequented by agents last night, and I got a phone call less than twelve hours later from an agency asking if I was interested in doing background work with them! So a lot of stuff is happening, and a large part of it is thanks to you”
