Hi everyone! As promised, I’m back to finish sharing my pre-production process of my upcoming headshot session.
Here is a link to “Taking Headshots Part 1” so you can have that info as well: https://tmblr.co/ZZ3IIx2HBSD9A
So, part 2! This is the rest of my pre-production process for my headshots.
I finalized my photographer from my top 3 list!
I put down a deposit to hold my appointment (February 25th!)
I informed my agent of my upcoming headshot session.
I purchased one final shirt from Target that matches a shirt that the Huck character in “Scandal” wears. I am going for a hacker look.
I completed my headshot template and sent a link to the photographer. The template breaks down the zip code of what I’m going for looks-wise as well as the subtext and inner life of the characters I’m bringing to life. In this way, the photographer and I can be on the same page in bringing those qualities out.
I filled out the form that the photographer emailed me.
I identified and asked someone I trust from my artistic community to be my assistant that day and keep me present.
I cut my hair to find the right length that represents who I am. I took pictures on day 1 and day 3 to compare hair length.
I need to find the right length of beard that represents who I am. I like the length of it after 2-3 days. I will trim my beard again and let it grow for 2-3 days. Then, I’ll take pictures to see what it looks like.
I need to do a test shoot with the wardrobe, hair cut and beard length I have.
I need to take my wardrobe options to the cleaners.
I need to continue drinking 50 oz of water every day and maintain a healthy diet so that I look and feel my best on camera.
I would also like to film the subtext I created for each character to make sure it reads on camera.
Let’s do this!
