I love photographing female headshots: in a world, where the equality of men and women has brought many women to hide their feminine qualities, I like to bring them out. A world that has not enough true femininity in it is missing the sensual and mystical quality of the woman.
There are millions of photographers in LA providing regular acting headshots. Why should you come to me? Maybe because you'd like a photograph that is particularly composed to fit you. You may have noticed that there is a certain sameness in headshots. A recognizable look, often similar backgrounds used by photographers as a kind of branding of their work. I think the female headshot should be worked around the character of the actress.
A good headshot is a photo, that could be a still image of a movie. Good expression, but not overdone. No "Say cheese" smile, and no cheesy smile.
A smile is a good example. Not everybody is a smiler. The most gentle women often have a serious outside. Mona Lisa's smile isn't really a smile, more the shadow of a smile. I like to work with the natural expressions of an actress. And the more risks she likes to take, the better it is. If you can be a witch, and if you dare to have a headshot that send the chills down one's spine - you have a good chance in casting. Courage is the word, for both the photographer and the actress.
