Do you dream of becoming a Model?  Or do you long to perform on Broadway?  Or perhaps you plan to hit the road for Hollywood!  One of the first things you will need is a Headshot. Your Headshot or Comp Card is your business card in the entertainment industry.  A Headshot is a single image and serves as an identification card helping you stand out from the crowd at auditions.  A Headshot should show off your personality while emphasizing your natural beauty.  This is not a shot with dramatic makeup and an elaborate hairdo! This is a finished, polished, natural look with minimal accessories.

Comp Cards contain a lot more information and are usually printed on two sides.  The front of the card looks like the Headshot, featuring a headshot or 3/4 shot and your name. The back of the card is where you can show your versatility with 3 or 4 images.  You can feature different fashion looks or your ability to work in a variety of set ups.  The back side of the card also includes your detailed stats such as height, weight, eye color, hair color, etc. and contact information.  For example, the images chosen for a model's Comp Card should look like they could be used for catalog, magazine, commercial or print ads.

Whether you are pursuing a full time performance career or just wanting to add some extra income with local opportunities, I would love to help you present yourself and your talent in the best possible light.  Contact me (cindy@cindyshortphotography.com) for more information on these special sessions.
