I did Sabin Rich‘s headshots. He’s an actor here in Los Angeles.
Here are a few photos that are straight on.
This one includes some body.
I really like this one on the stairs. (I like doing head shots in the alley way behind my apartment complex. Not only is it convenient for me, but there are a lot of different walls to use. Normally, I don’t get to use the stairs because there’s always a homeless guy laying down next to it. But not today! So Sabin got lucky!)
This photo highlights more of his eyes. You can see some of the green in his eyes here.
Here’s more of a business look rather than casual.
Here’s the gallery of Sabin’s Photos.
It’s different shooting actors versus models.
With actors, you want to evoke more of a character in your photos. So during head shot sessions, I have that person think of the characters that they want to play or auditioning for.
The photos for head shots are of course more of your face. So you want to show everything through your face. I hate blank stares. As Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model would say, you have to “smize” (smile with your eyes).
With models, the body shape can be played with more. It’s more about the angles.
So that’s my little spiel on a few differences between actors and models.
Anyways, I hope you like the photos!
