Headshot Workshop: The Essentials, Part 2

What to Wear to Your Headshot Session?

Join me for Part 2 of The Headshot Workshop Essentials series!

If you missed Part 1, don't sweat it! You are still welcome to join us for this next awesome class, where we will be discussing what to wear to book the job, whether it be for headshots or agent/casting director interviews!

The number one question I am always asked is, "What should I wear in my headshots?" Knowing your branding and knowing what casting directors are looking for is essential to creating a headshot that will get you auditions!

In this class, we'll cover:

Knowing your brand      • Meeting castings' needs      • How to dress for your brand

Headshot Workshop: The Essentials, Part 2

 

Know Your Brand and Feel Confident in How to Express It!

Just like in our last course, whether you're a seasoned pro or brand new to headshots, this short course is designed to walk you through how to best prepare for your next session, and how to feel the most comfortable and confident in front of the lens, with your wardrobe!

Basically, everything I WISH I could tell actors about wardrobe before they step into their headshot sessions!

This workshop will cover the following:

  • Discover what your 'brand' is, and why it is so important in creating eye catching images.
  • Learn to bring your 'brand' into the room with your wardrobe.
  • What casting directors are looking for in your wardrobe, both in headshots and in the casting room.
  • How to dress to get the job in both your headshot and in interviews/auditions.
 

What to expect:

Just like in our last class, there will be plenty of Prosecco, and because it's Cinco de Mayo, we'll definitely be enjoying some chips and guacamole (we're so fancy), and the pursuit of great headshots!

Along with a special branding guest lecturer, and audition coach, Alberto Bonilla, we'll tell you everything you need to know to dress for success, and dress for your brand, whether it be for new headshots, or for an agent interview or audition.

If possible, we'll ask you to come to the class dressed how you might walk in to an audition. Please don't sweat it though! We understand you may need to come straight from the gym, or soul cycle, or straight from a crazy rehearsal, we get it! The idea is that off the bat, we get a pretty good idea on how you might brand yourself right now, and how we might help you to improve your branding through your wardrobe, and going forward, how you might be able to better equip yourself for your next headshot session and/or interviews and auditions!

Expect this short course to be fun, entertaining, and one of the most informative classes about headshots and the acting industry in general, that you may ever take!

 

About the details:

A detailed location confirmation will be sent upon booking, outlining course location and what materials to bring. Most likely this class will take place at Ripley Grier, 520 8th Ave., Manhattan,

Seats are limited to a total of 16 guests.

What to expect:

 

With a little relaxation, laughter, encouragement, and Prosecco, each student who wishes to will get a chance to get up in front of the lens and practice the techniques they learn. I'll be coaching gently from the side and providing lots of tips and encouragement!

Take aways:

You'll walk away with more clarity and direction on what casting directors are looking for when they are viewing your headshots. As well as more confidence on how to interact with the lens the next time you are in front of it!

Don't worry about showing up and looking nice to this class, you won't be taking home any images of your self after this course. I want you to feel as relaxed as possible, so that you can learn and 'make mistakes' without feeling self conscious about a final product! This is a chance to be free and to experiment with techniques that you'll be learning in class! So feel free to roll up in your gym clothes or sweats for all I care!

Why this course?

All too often I have actors tell me how nervous they are when they walk into a photoshoot. If you have ever worried what the experience will be like, or wondered how you can get better results in front of the lens, or if you are just chronically anxious about the process, you are the reason I wanted to bring this course to life.

I always wish I could alleviate those fears on the spot, but I also know that it takes time and practice to be comfortable in front of a camera. And paying for photoshoots over and over again just to feel comfortable or get the results you are looking for is costly and frustrating.

Let go of past headshot 'mistakes', let go of anxiety, and start to feel more confident in front of any camera! 

As they say, "Practice makes perfect!"
