I was down in Melbourne over the weekend and an acting student at Victoria College of the Arts approached me for some head shots. The head shot, for what it’s worth, is a bit of a big deal – because this is the entry point that people in the industry have to you, in some cases before they meet you. So how you appear in an online listing is important. We did capture images that suited this purpose, but what you see here is more of the Beth-getting-carried-away part of the session…Emma has the most amazing, expressive eyes, as an actor she can do so much, how am I supposed to resist that??! It’s going to be great to follow her development through her course and beyond in her working career. I love the image of her in the lane way she looks like a mannequin doll. We were testing clothing and ideas for that part, and the very first frame was the winner, how about that.
Which is your favourite image?
The scene of the crime…complete with audience! She did well
