Spotlight: Professional Acting Headshots


Every aspiring actor dreams of being called for auditions. They hope for opportunities in an upcoming television series, theatre show, or film. But how do you get in front of a casting director? For many performers, the answer is to join Spotlight. Spotlight has a reputation for connecting individuals. It helps them achieve their goals and aspirations.

Actor Photography

The main part of a Spotlight profile is the images. This visual representation of the actor is the basis for shortlisting potential candidates for auditions. Whilst actors can upload up to 15 images, Spotlight advises a focus on quality over quantity. Most casting agents will only view 4 or 5 headshots.


For important career photography, don't take shortcuts. This is no time for a camera phone. Work with a professional photographer who understands Spotlight's photography needs.

Spotlight Headshots, What are the Photographic Requirements?


In other portrait photography sessions, my clients ramp up the glamour. They do this with hairstyling, makeup, and outfits. They want to look their absolute best. Spotlight photography is different. Casting directors want a blank canvas that they can adapt to a variety of characters and looks. It demands a plain background and neutral clothing to ensure all focus remains on the actor’s face. 


As a professional photographer, I use light and angles to take headshots. I showcase radiant skin, bright eyes, and innate personality. This is portraiture in its purest form; natural and genuine. We will work together to take a collection of images, which I will filter them down to the best shots. I will supply the selected images in high-resolution, digital format. Upload them to your Spotlight profile.


The photoshoot fee includes a complimentary airbrushing of your favourite picture. But with my great photography you wont need much.
