Happy Tuesday! Last week I showed you some easy exercises you can do to develop your characters for your headshot session, and this week I’m keeping it going! Now that you know how many looks you need and exactly what characters you want to show, it’s time to get your practical questions answered.
Do you know where your session is? Are you shooting inside or outside? Is it hair and makeup or just makeup? WILL THERE BE A BATHROOM?!
All of these are important questions you need answered before your shoot so you can be as prepared as possible.
Let’s make sure your next headshot session is stress-free!

“Will there be a bathroom” is probably the most important question to ask before a headshot session. Tweet: “What matters is that you master money & it doesn’t master you.” @TonyRobbins via @WorkshopGuru http://workshopguru.com/blog/pay-yourself-first #actorslife
