Giveback Project: November 2014
My name is Theik, and I'm a headshot photographer. And, I have a question for you:
Do you know an amazing, dedicated, hard working actor who just NEEDS a break?
See, I LOVE actors. I LOVE the creative community. I LOVE what it's done for me and my life.
I believe very strongly in the POWER OF THE HEADSHOT(TM). It's one of the most important tools an actor has to get into those auditions where hard work and preparation meet an opportunity to live the dream - and, get paid WELL to do so!
I also believe in HELPING others with what I can.
So, once a month, I want to shoot one actor for no charge - full session. That means, they get the same deal I give my wonderful customers:
A 2-3 hour session, a full contact proof gallery, and 2 edited shots from a photographer who KNOWS what an effective headshot is, and who gets his clients WORK.
Here's the catch: this isn't for "free".
"Free" means that I'm just GIVING something away.
"Free" means that you're getting something for nothing.
This isn't "free".
Because, this is for an actor where money and time have been issues that keep them from getting quality headshots.
This is for an actor who's been scratching at the doors of Casting and being denied entry at every turn due to a lack of good shots they simply can NOT afford at this point.
This is for an actor who believes in ACTING, in being a CREATIVE PROFESSIONAL, who just needs the right edge at the right time.
This is for an actor who takes the RESPONSIBILITY of being an actor seriously, and is crazy enough to want to pursue this dream because they can't imagine being anything else.
And, they can't recommend themselves. It has to be a friend or family member, someone who has seen their struggle and believes in them. Maybe, moreso than they could ever know.
Now, what I'd like for you to do, dear reader, is think of someone you know who might be in need. Real need. Think of them, then reach out to me:
I'm looking for my next actor for December. Send them over as soon as you can!
Let's do some good. With that said:
Frank is an awesome guy, and the first official entry on my blog. A mutual friend of ours recommended him for this after our headshot session back in October, and she quickly put him in touch with me. She told me that Frank is a young actor, who's been working crazy hard, and has a good heart, but he needed headshots to really start taking more steps forward in his career. And, as is the case for many of us, money's just so damn tight.
So, Frank got the slot.
On the day of our session, Frank came in from the rain, still in his work clothes - but, when it was time to rock and roll, he DID. He was a fantastic guy to shoot with, and our session was AWESOMESAUCE.
