Frequently Asked Questions
Skip the selfies and hire a professional, like me! The following FAQs will help you understand the importance of professional quality headshots, but lighting and focus are the top reasons to opt out of doing headshots for yourself.
As a calling card and first impression, headshots are important to get right!
Good headshots will provide the best lighting for your face, draw attention to your expression, and be a flattering representation of yourself that will catch the attention of casting directors and agents.
Headshots aren’t a glamour shots moment. Now is a good time to determine the roles you’re hoping to be cast for and select outfits that match those characters.
Layering is also recommended to add visual interest to your photos and enhances your look compared to a simple t-shirt.
Skip busy patterns, however, that are distracting to the eye.
My top suggestions are to wear outfits you feel good in, get compliments on and look good on you.
If you plan to wear a new outfit for your photoshoot, pick one that fits well and is a color you know looks good on you.
If you feel comfortable and confident in your outfit, then it will be reflected in your photos.
The worst color for headshots is white because it reflects light and can affect the quality of the photo. That said, avoid white and colors close to white.
Instead, pick contrasting colors to your skin color. Avoid colors that blend in with your skin.
I find that most people look good in blues, greens and purples and other rich colors because they compliment the natural red tone in their skin.
Nearly everyone looks good in black. Dark colors provide more contrast in a photo and wearing black is a great way to shift focus to your face, naturally.
While black is recommended, be sure to bring a few different color tops that will contrast against different backgrounds.
I advise against wearing jewelry in your headshots.
As discussed before, your acting headshots are your calling card and your best first impression. I want you to be the focal point of your images and jewelry can be a distraction.
Smiling for your acting headshots is recommended to show warmth and approachability in your photos. Remember that headshots are your first impression, so it’s important to make sure your smile isn’t fake.
Consider the roles you’re hoping to be cast for. If you plan to play serious roles, consider a more serious headshot.
Either way, your photographer will help you display your genuine self without looking awkward or unapproachable.

Kyle is fantastic! I was on the hunt for a new headshot for months; Googled and found his website, then signed up for a studio session on the spot. Having not met him before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The photo session was great and my photos exceeded my expectations.
Kyle has taken headshots for several of my coworkers and everyone highly recommended him. Kyle did not disappoint! He was really helpful with telling me how to pose and helped make sure I didn’t have any stray hairs to ruin the photo. He has great attention to detail and eliminates any awkwardness with friendly conversation. 10/10 would recommend it!!
Kyle Bondeson is the most amazing, creative, hardworking, and well-rounded professional photographer I have ever met! I was extremely pleased with the headshots that Kyle photographed back in March. Every aspect from the lighting to the background was perfectly achieved through Kyle’s sharp attention to detail. He listened to my ideas, provided great suggestions, and made the entire experience seamless. I was also impressed with Kyle’s drive to obtain the perfect photograph, which also allowed me to choose from a wide variety of quality pictures after our session. I am very lucky to have found such a great photographer. If I could rate Kyle 100 stars for this review, the decision would be a no-brainer. He is worth every dollar! Do yourself a favor and book Kyle.
