Retouching for Actors

Headshots are not just photos of you marketing your skills as talent, they also are the main instruments that get you calls for work. I take that seriously. I retouch actor headshots with your direction as my guide, and I encourage you to get the input of your management and/or agents ahead of time. I work on every image with the highest level of attention and detail available.

Casting agents are very savvy individuals. I meet with local agents regularly to discuss trends and technology with them and my style of retouching is tuned to the needs and current trends in the industry. So what does all that have to do with retouching your headshot? I want you to know that as an important part of my business… I pay attention to the industry so I can deliver great work.

  • Basic headshot retouching includes:
  • Color / Light balance
  • Acne / Acne scars
  • Skin discolorations
  • Minimization of harsh wrinkles / lines
  • Manage eyebrows / facial hair
  • Tame stray hairs ( Very complicated stray hair may incur an extra $5 charge)

After your images are received, you will receive a link to your retouched images on a private server. They are “rollover” images, allowing you to easily toggle between the before/after. The first pass is a starting point… after the first pass there are two additional passes for corrections at your direction. Once approved, you will receive your final images. A high resolution master file, and a smaller file pre-sized  and ready for email and upload to major casting sites and agencies.
