The Art & Business of Actor Headshots with Michael Sanville

During this one-day intensive workshop, Michael Sanville, a headshot photographer with 20 years of experience, will share his knowledge of the industry, including how he has photographed literally tens of thousands of actors and continues to do so.

Students will learn the proper tools it takes to begin a career as a headshot photographer including:

  • How to find your style.
  • How to avoid the trappings of trends.
  • How to find makeup artists that are not only professional but reliable.
  • How to decide between flash and natural light and why some prefer one over the other.
  • How to make an effective and inexpensive marketing plan to build your business.
  • The do's and don't of working with actors and how to relate to them one on one.

This class will prepare students to deliver a top quality headshot that will get the actor noticed, and more importantly, in the door of agents managers and casting directors alike. Students are encouraged to bring a DSLR camera equipped with a hot shoe or sync connection.
