Actor Head-Shot Photography in Cardiff

Every actor, whether just starting out, or at that point when every one knows their name will require a professional head-shot. In the acting world photos are your business cards. They are usually your first introduction to someone who may be able to give you that big break you have been waiting for.

If you are serious about making some kind of living as an actor, you will need at least one good headshot to start with. A good head-shot brings personality, but actors need to also show that they have diversity and need a number of different ‘looks’ to be appealing to an agent, director or producer.

The head-shot is the single most important marketing tool for an actor, and it’s amazing how many people do it wrong just to cut a few corners. It will be sent out and emailed to tons of casting directors and agents, who see hundreds of these every day, on their desk and on their computer. Magenta Photography understands what makes a good head-shot; it’s all about the eyes, lighting and making you look like you – but at your best.

We offer fantastic head-shot photography packages from our studio in Cardiff Bay or on location. The session lasts around 2 hours and includes up-to 3 outfit changes. To give a variety of looks, we can change the studio backdrop colour and if the weather allows we can use the fantastic locations near the studio in Cardiff Bay.

The best images from the session will be uploaded to our site for online viewing within 24 hours of the session for you to make your selection. 10 chosen images will be subtly enhanced to make you look your very best and supplied to you as hi-resolution digital files, both colour and B&W versions, which can be used by your casting agent and on social media sites.

This is what one of our lovely clients had to say about his recent actor head-shot experience;

"Chris makes you feel comfortable throughout the process and brings out the best in the photos. With the Headshots I've already secured various TV auditions, modelling contracts and a role on Welsh TV."
