"You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus." Mark Twain.
As an actor or actress, it is important that your headshot represents who you are. A good headshot will to declare something about you. It is not about looking perfectly made up, but rather being natural and interesting. A good headshot is compelling and entices others to want to get to know you better. Aka...call you in for an interview.
Musicians are always fun to photograph. They embody emotions so foreign to me. Capturing their passion is rewarding in a major way. Wether it's candid shots of a performance or an album cover photo-shoot, these creative minds make me want to never sit my camera down.
Red carpet events, book readings, private parties, television/film set photography... the list is endless. These events are always a good physical workout for me. Better than going to an actual gym! Being alert is absolutely key. The right moment to snap my camera can come and go so quickly and when I get it, I have to hustle to capture the next perfect image.
