Actors Head Shots

You may have heard “your head shot is your calling card.” It’s true! It is the first thing that casting sees. It is their introduction to you. This means it needs to be a professional and accurate representation of you!

I understand the importance of a good head shot that showcases you feeling grounded, connected with the camera and looking like you on your best day! I also understand being put on the spot in front of a stills camera to get THE shot. It can be very unnerving. Somehow it feels different than being in front of motion camera on set. I have found that even experienced actors get nervous when it comes time for their head shots. Relax I am here to help! During your session I will coach you until you feel grounded and you are in second circle so that we nail your headshots and you have a hard time choosing which one to print.

Here’s what actors are saying

“I have shot with Candace several times now and there are many reasons why I keep coming back. Before you even meet with her, Candace has a conversation about what you are needing out of your session so that you, Candace, and most often your agent are all on the same page. Her space is very welcoming and you instantly feel at ease and ready to be photographed. Candace has a really great understanding of what is being shot in Vancouver (for Film/TV) which means she can get very specific with the types of looks that need to be captured. My agent was very pleased and I was super pumped to get them all up on the appropriate websites and start using them! I highly recommend Candace if you are looking for a comfortable space, with a comfortable photographer who can capture your essence in a natural way!”

Ashley Alexander – Love of the Sidelines, The Art of Us

She is super skilled at what she does and also happens to be a total gem of a human. If anyone needs head shots Candace Woods Photography is the way to go!

Stephanie Bennett – Unreal, The Romeo  Section, 21 Thunder

“I loved your set-up at your studio, a nice chilled energy, and big thanks for the wardrobe help too. I’ve never really felt comfortable having my photo taken but you helped me feel relaxed.”

Veena Sood – The Big Year, 50/50, The X Files, Salvation

“My agent saw the online gallery from our shoot and said “Print them all!” It was so hard to choose.”

Tina Hedman – Actress

“My session with Candace was easy, fun and the results were exceptional. I wouldn’t hesitate to do it all over again.”

Nathan Jean – Star Trek: Beyond, The Order
