I am Josh Lombard, a fellow artist. I moved to NYC to peruse acting, and now I am a director, editor and photographer, so I know how daunting getting headshots seems, but they are crucial for getting your foot in the door. As a director I have seen so many photos that do not represent an individual, and it's a shame. Sometimes the person isn't right for my show, but might be perfect for something else, so I hand off the headshot to a colleague who now is only going off this one photo they have in hand.
As an actor you have a brief moment to capture someones attention with a headshot, and that's just for the possibility of being seen. It doesn't matter how brilliantly talented you may be, without the right headshot, you won't even get in the room to show off your talent. So it's imperative that your photos are not only incredible, but also shows a spark of your personality.
Now I know headshots can be expensive, but they are an investment for your job, and to me, one of the most crucial. And of course you could save a little money and have a friend shoot your headshots, and sure, they might look good, but do they look great? Do they capture your unique essence? As a director, I love working with actors and I know how imperative the environment is to allow actors to flourish. With me, I work with you to create a space where your personality can confidently shine.
