Head Shots For Actors

Hey Guys,

So the New Year is almost upon us and lots of you are thinking of resolutions and new starts. I guess that could be why I've been doing a few head shots this week. For actors especially it's important to have an up to date head shot for castings and agencies. But of course Facebook and other social media sites are where your friends, family and potential business contacts are going to see you. So a professional picture may just set you apart from the rest.

So here are a couple of the images I captured recently for these reasons.

Well In between the bad storms and floods we have had a few great days to get out and shoot. I managed to arrange a shoot last week at Audley Wood, just outside Basingstoke and took this picture of a willing male subject.

He isn't a model but did a good job hiding the fact which of course is what I love to do. You really don't have to be experienced in front of the camera to have some great pictures taken.

I hope you guys like this as much as I do. Good job G.

Basingstoke Hockey Christmas Dinner

We had a fun Saturday night with Basingstoke Hockey Club when they held their Black Tie dinner event. There were just over 100 guests in the club house getting merry on the odd drink and rocking out with the band.

We had a few of the teams in front of the mobile studio to record the night before things got too messy.

All in all a fab night and if you've not been to the club house on a Saturday, it's worth popping down to 'Down Grange' to see some games.

Proteus Creation Space Exhibit

If you are looking for somewhere to visit for free in the Basingstoke area with a little bit of artistic intent, then why not pop down to Proteus Creation Space. It is situated in Fairfields and also doubles as our studio. They have a gallery that displays local artists which changes every couple of weeks or so.

They asked us to pop in and document an installation that was produces by 6 local women with mental health issues which was fascinating. Below you can see a couple of pictures we took, maybe I'll see you there soon.

Down Time

I do like it when I have a little down time, it gives me time to play with some of my images. I have always loved to do the retouching myself of my pictures, I'm guessing its my control issues. But I know I still have a long way to go before I could call myself an expert. There is just so much you can do now with basic pictures to really make them stand out and I'm in ore of some the people out there.

I hope you guys like the images and you might note if you can read the first picture it is all about the homeless in London. The model in question has raised money for this charity and even slept out to highlight their plight. 

Anyway till next time. :-)
