The Headshot Session
What should I wear? What should I do? How should I look? What are casting directors looking for? I want a headshot that shows my personality or I want a headshot that matches the roles I want to be casted in. Mike has heard these questions and or concerns all before. It's what he specializes in and understands how important it is to have a photo that best represents YOU. An actors headshot should look cool and interesting. Right? Mike knows this and puts a lot of focus on directing you in a way that brings out authentic expressions and confidence in your eyes, making you look approachable. This is all happens from working one on one with you, giving each look at least 30 - 45 minutes and then going through the photos to help coach you along. Mike asks to please bring more than three different outfits and to have fun!
Mike Walburn, an LA photographer based in the North Hollywood area, began his career in photography a couple years after moving to Los Angeles. You might be asking yourself, why did it take a couple of years? Well, that's because Mike moved out here to be a screenwriter. It's what his degree is in so it only made sense. Right? But when his second passion beckoned, he couldn't pass up the opportunity to be a film set photographer on a project. Since then he's never looked back. Nowadays, Mike mainly focuses on portraits and headshots for client needs like social media, websites, corporate, personal branding and actor headshots. Mike has such a love and passion for being a portrait photographer, which you can see by how he gets to know his clients personally as soon as they arrive and listening to their needs. This helps him and his clients work better one on one while giving them directions, which then allows Mike to bring out his clients personalities and capture their best features. People have said they were surprised by how comfortable they felt in front of the camera, making it a great experience for them. It's why so many return to this North Hollywood photographer.
