Top Toronto model and talent management agency’s 5 Tips for shooting great headshots

Professional headshots are essential for a model or actor when going to castings and auditions.  These photos are what you submit to agencies and they are the first photos that a creative director or a casting director will evaluate. We are sharing five tips to help you get the most out of your photoshoot!

1- Focus on your unique features

As someone who aspires to be in modeling and acting projects, you may have an idea of what you will be best fit for. You could have a very unique hair type or facial feature that makes you special. Maybe your forte is your freckles or your physique. Use that to your advantage and practice posing in ways that enhance those features! It will help casting directors to notice the characteristics that they are searching for.

2- Show emotion 

Acting and modeling requires you to play the role of different characters. Make sure to show different facial expressions to increase the chance that casting directors connect with the character that you are portraying. Showcase the roles that you want to play in your photos!

3- Go for a no-makeup look and a full glam

Modeling agencies look for minimal makeup looks where they can see your  natural features. You might also do side-profile shots in this look during your photoshoot. Also go for a full glam look, especially if you aspire to be in beauty campaigns for makeup brands. 

4- Consider the overall look and your goals when choosing your outfits

What you wear will play an important role in how your headshots turn out. If you are after a beauty campaign for example, consider showing your shoulders! It is a safe choice to keep it simple. Avoid logos and busy patterns. Go for a color that suits you, your skintone, your eye color, hair color, and so on. 

5- Good quality over quantity

Get your headshots taken by a professional photographer who is experienced and uses commercial-grade equipment. Consider whether they have studio lighting or if they will be shooting in natural light. Professional photos will ensure that you are taken seriously.

Top Toronto model management agency’s talent showcase- pop singer/songwriter Ashley Sienna

Today’s talent spotlight is on Toronto-born pop singer/songwriter, Ashley Sienna!

Ashley is an 18-year-old with a Slovak Heritage. She often travels to beautiful Europe to visit her family and can speak the language! 

Being a musician, she does photoshoots for upcoming releases and other promos, which has led her to discover her passion for modeling. Having a photographer as a brother, they love taking pictures to develop their respective skills!

Her passion for acting also roots from being a musician.

“I believe that singing is a form of acting, as I need to feel the emotions of the music and live into songs in order to make the listeners believe what I’m singing. Singing in music videos also involves acting, as well as performing live. I feel like a lot of careers in the creative industry are connected in some way.”

Ashley loves music! She plays the guitar and the piano. At age 11, she wrote her first song and posted it to YouTube. She has not stopped writing and releasing new music ever since!

She loves creating fun content on her YouTube channel to give others an insight  into her life.  She shares vlogs, her originals, remixes, music videos, and covers of her favourite songs on her channel.

Find her YouTube channel Ashley Sienna and her Instagram page @ashelysiennaofficial.

Ashley loves to share original music and meet people all across the world, so she began live streaming on an app called Sessions Live, where she shares her original music, covers, and interacts with awesome people from all over the world!

She released her debut EP in November 2020 and is currently working on her second, which will be released soon.

Her dream is to be in a lead role in a tv series like Outerbanks where she could work among a group of young people doing what they love while creating unforgettable memories!

“Going into the creative industry, I knew that it would be competitive. But I believe that it’s extremely important to do the things that we love in life, and not settle for a mediocre career we never wanted. Although it’s cliche, we should always stick to our dream and never give up. It’ll all be worth the dedication, sweat, and tears.”
