Actor Headshots – Full Studio in Los Angeles

1 year ago Brandin Photography moved into our current new studio space located Mid City LA.  While we’ve kept the same amazing natural light, we’ve also added pretty much any light or studio accessory a photographer could dream of :)   This has helped us to create not only fresh natural headshots, but editorial & fashion images as well.  Full Hair/Makeup station and wardrobe area set up for a comfortable and relaxed shooting environment.  Being just 2 minutes outside the Culver City Arts District, we also have some absolutely amazing external locations to shoot at if we feel like taking a quick drive over!  In 14 years, we not had this level of professional location combined with access to some of the coolest shooting spots for Actor Headshots in Los Angeles.  Hope to see you soon!

LA HEADSHOTS just in time for pilot season!

“LA Headshot” – what does that mean?

People always ask me “What’s the difference between an east coast headshot and a Los Angeles Headshot?”  The main thing that characterizes an LA Headshot is that they are (nowadays) all at least a little bit character based.  Of course, it’s never good to go over the top – unless you play very over the top characters ….and even then it should be pulled back a tad for the headshot.  The actress above wanted to do:

1.  Fresh Young Mom

2. Edgy CW type  and

3. Quirky but Sexy.

You can see that the makeup is basically the same for each image, with only minor changes made to lip color.  This is because agents/managers overwhelmingly prefer a more natural makeup look.  In fact, many agents specify “no black eyeliner AT ALL”.  The wardrobe has also been kept very neutral, with no distracting or overly bright colors or patterns.  The soft floral print is faded and doesn’t take away from her face.  The black, white and taupe used in the other shots help her eyes and skin tone really pop.  You see the character in each image, but it feels like an organic incarnation of the actress…not like a costume.

Still time to get your headshots in time for pilot season – located in mid city LA

If you’re ready to get the best headshots of your career, we’d absolutely love to have you in the studio.  We’ve been at our new huge studio space in Mid City LA for over 1 year now and couldn’t be happier with the way the pictures are coming out!!

We shot this cover art for female rapper Mik Brown in our huge Los Angeles warehouse.  Mik had an amazing hair/makeup artist, as well as an incredibly unique fashion sense, which always takes the images to the next level.  This is one talented and gorgeous woman!

Headshot Photographers in Los Angeles – Natural vs. Studio Light

I really pride myself on knowing how to mix natural & studio light.  Some people love one and hate the other….but honestly, they each have their strengths.  2 of the images above were taken with a mix & 2 were taken with Natural light only.  See if you can guess which is which :)

When booking a Los Angeles photographer to shoot your headshots, you might consider choosing someone who uses various lighting types during your shoot…..it gives each look it’s own vibe & feel, which helps the images to look more authentic to the story of the picture.

Actor Headshots Los Angeles

Erica shot with us last week & we’ve been dying to post our favorites!  She has the kind of look & energy that allows a photographer to go “outside the box” & create something unique.  It didn’t hurt to have had the help of photographer Amanda Max Weber, who shot the final 3 images above.  Actor Headshots is such a collaborative art form, so having 2 photographers & an amazing actor was a recipe for some seriously amazing shots.

Commercial Headshots need to POP.  Period.  That doesn’t always necessarily mean wearing bright colors.  It doesn’t always necessarily mean smiling.  But, there is a definite, distinct feel to a great commercial headshot – and it’s extremely important that the actor look real….as in, the image should feel like you’re actually looking at the person.  Above, actress Lisa Centeno shows why she’s amazing at what she does.  With an ability to authentically connect with the camera, she and I were able to create warm, fun & very commercial images :)   Always a blast to work with excellent talent…..

It’s always a blast when you get to go “outside the box” when shooting headshots.  Actor Linnea Ray (Above) wanted to do a sort of vintage bikini type shot, which of course she’s perfect for.  Since Linnea is also a singer it made sense to shoot more than just for her acting agent – - – although, we did end up cropping one of these into an actual headshot.

Kid & Teen Headshots in LA

I’ve been shooting kids & teens headshots for as long as I’ve been a photographer….but in the past year I decided to make it more of a focus in my work, after realizing how competitive things have gotten for kids in the LA industry.  I had always felt like kids could just have a couple snapshots taken by their parents & that’d be good enough….but these days that’s actually sort of unheard of.  Crazy!  Kids change so fast!  How can getting professional headshots even be practical?  The cost is another obvious issue…. the best photogs out there shooting kids seem to be astronomically expensive.  And the affordable ones leave a little to be desired in quality.  It seems unfair that only kids whose parents can afford $400+ every 8 months get a shot at doing what sooooo many of them obviously love.  SO, I offer headshots for kids based on their age….and give an even deeper discount to kids coming from agencies I trust to refer parents who are somewhat informed….making the day easier for me & the child – - – which totally justifies the huge cut in rate.  Also, i just really really enjoy working with tons of kids….always interesting & always a blast.
