YouTube for Actors in Los Angeles

The world develops very fast, and today it is a must to be aware of the new technologies. One of the main reasons is that they may create new opportunities for you. Many people dream about a successful acting career. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I know how challenging the road to success is. Actors in Los Angeles attend various Los Angeles acting schools and casting studios. They try to find different agents, producers, directors, etc. to market themselves and get their dream role in the movie. There are many stories in history when famous actors have been discovered in different places, such as streets or cafes.

But nowadays, many tools may help actors in Los Angeles to market themselves and gain an audience. And those tools have made the process of becoming famous, more simple, and quicker. One of the tools is YouTube, and there are many ways that actors can benefit from it. This platform can help you express yourself, get creative in filming videos, and gain attention from a lot of people. And maybe YouTube will open many doors for you. Below you can read about why you should start using YouTube and the main benefits that you can get from it.

Free Marketing

Creating an account and uploading videos on YouTube is free. Especially for beginner actors, this is an excellent opportunity to market themselves and not pay for that. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, who works with actors and takes affordable headshots for them, I know that marketing may be costly for actors. Of course, in order to have a quality account on YouTube, you have to put a lot of effort into it. If you get creative and spend some time making videos, I am sure you will gain your audience, and people will start to pay attention to you. In addition to this, if people like your videos, they will begin to share it with others. So more people will follow you. And maybe a producer will notice you and offer you a role in a movie.

The hardest part is to start, but I can assure you that the process will go smoothly once you begin. Here is a video on how to start a YouTube channel and grow it. I hope that this may help you to start your YouTube channel right now. 

Youtube Gives Freedom to Your Creativity

As I have mentioned above, creativity is one of the main parts of a successful and exciting YouTube channel. And what’s more important is that this platform gives you a huge room to express your creativity. If you spend some time researching and watching different videos on YouTube, you will notice that the content is diverse. People try to create videos about everything in order to stand out. In addition to this, you take the whole responsibility for your job, and you can control it as you want. You can decide when you want to post videos and what its content should be. 

As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, it is essential for me to control the whole creative process. Usually, I have many ideas and I want to make them into reality. I think this is a crucial part for creative people, and actors in Los Angeles can gain a lot of experience from Youtube. Hence have an opportunity to express themselves and give freedom to their ideas and creativity.

Gain Experience and Learn from Other Actors

You can also benefit from YouTube by watching videos of other actors and by learning from them. There are a lot of useful videos that may interest you. For example, you can watch how famous actors auditioned for their roles. It is always interesting to see how they developed their skills through years, and how they were acting at the beginning of their career. You can also follow other actors in Los Angeles who have their blogs on YouTube. Try to learn how they promote their accounts and what they do to grow it. Learning from others is one of the essential parts of becoming successful. Following others’ experience is critical. I highly recommend you to search for new people and pay attention to details. This doesn’t mean that you are copying from them. You just learn from people who have experience and can help you in the process of becoming successful.

Also, you can make new friends and be part of a big community. Provide your help to them as well, and share your experience. Remember, that you may know something which can be helpful for a young actor. As you may already know, networking is vital in your career, so pay attention to it. Here you can read some helpful information about actors’ networking events in Los Angeles.

A New Format of Casting

Another way that you, as an actor in Los Angeles, can benefit from YouTub is online casting. Maybe you are used to traditional casting methods. But with the help of YouTube, you can post your demo reels, and everyone will be able to see it. This gives you more chances that someone may notice you and call for an audition. YouTube makes your job more comfortable than it was before. Now, the chances of getting a role increase because agents search for talented people everywhere. Of course, YouTube is one of the most significant sources. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I would highly encourage you to pay massive attention to your demo reels. It also may open many doors for you. You can show your talents in a couple of minutes. And believe me, it will be enough for directors or producers to become interested in you. 

This is a great tool, and try to use it wisely. High-quality videos grab more attention, and in addition to that, this will make you seem professional and prepared. So don’t forget to make a quality product and in some time you will see the result.

Upload Trailers of Your Movies

You can post the trailers of the movies on your YouTube account if you have already acted in different movies. This will not only help you to promote your film but also will show the audience your work. They will be able to see your skills in a real movie. Also, this will add to your professionalism and confirm that you are an experienced actor. If you have a couple of thousands of followers, then your audience will share your trailer with other people. Hence it will gain a lot of views. If the audience likes the movie, usually they want to see how the film was made, or some backstage videos. For example, if I like a movie, I always search for backstage videos or photos to understand the making process. You can post some interesting videos, and with the help of it, the movie will gain more attention.

These types of videos are not only exciting, but they also create a very warm feeling, because actors show themselves outside of the role. 

You Can Generate Income

After some time, when you gain an audience with a lot of followers and become trusted by them, you can start to earn money on YouTube. You can make money from views, advertisements, likes, etc. Nowadays, many YouTubers earn a lot of money because they have millions of followers. In time, they start to do ads, make contracts, have partners, and make a huge amount of money. Of course, this may not happen immediately, because you will not have a lot of followers from the beginning. And also, you should not start YouTube with the thought that you are going to earn a lot of money. Your biggest goal from YouTube has to be the desire to get noticed by others and gain an audience. Monetization comes second, but of course, it is an excellent way to earn money.

Personally, I have favorite YouTubers who make different advertisements in their videos. Still, they try to do it in a very balanced and creative way. So the audience doesn’t even get distracted from it. To conclude, everything is good if you make it with a sense of taste. 

YouTube is Available for You Every Day

When you post a video on YouTube, it stays there as much as you want. So that means that people can watch it 24/7. YouTube will not take the video away from the platform (unless it doesn’t contain any privacy problems). This will help you to promote yourself and track how your audience is reacting to your videos. For example, you can see which video got more views, likes, comments, etc. With this, you will understand which type of content is more enjoyable for your audience and interests them the most. Hence you will post more content like that. It is always important to listen to the needs of your audience because they are the ones who follow you. As the videos stay on your account forever, people will be able to watch them later and get to know you.

Step-by-step, you will notice how the number of subscribers is increasing. In addition to this new people will visit your account in order to get to know you. Also, after a couple of years, you can look back at your first videos. You will see how time changed you and that each next video is even better than the previous one.

Film Your Small Movies

If you don’t get role offers for a long time, or the ones that you get are not appropriate for you, then you can start to film your own small movies. You can write a small interesting script and start filming according to that script. This will help you to show your acting skills, and many directors and producers may get interested in you. If you can’t find a role in movies, in the beginning, don’t give up and start finding alternatives. This is a perfect way to illustrate your creativity and also to gain an audience which is important for actors in Los Angeles.

For example, if you start filming a mini-series and post it weekly, people will be interested in the next episode. You can invite your friends or family members to help you with filming. You can even ask them to play a role in your small movie. This will not be expensive, and also you will have a great time with the people you love. And they will enjoy the process. YouTube gives room for a lot of creativity. If you open your imagination, I am sure you will come up with some great ideas. People always search for new content, so be sure that your content will find its audience. 

As a Conclusion

As you can notice, there are many ways that YouTube can help you in your career. In reality, it is one of the best tools for not only actors in Los Angeles but everyone. The internet has become an enormous source of information. People started to search for different information and people on the internet. Technologies have made the life of people a couple of times more comfortable. If you examine the road of success of other people, you will notice that they didn’t have as many resources as you have today. So you should be wise enough to use those resources and take opportunities. Today many people become famous and start to build their successful careers from YouTube. And it is always interesting to watch them and see how they develop their careers day by day. 

As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I highly recommend you start your YouTube account and try to grow it. It will take time, and of course, the process will not be effortless, but as you already understood, it is worth it. So move forward and build your career as an actor in Los Angeles with your everyday hard work.

Coronavirus in Hollywood

Coronavirus has changed everything in just months, and many industries are shaping and facing a lot of challenges. Everything gets cancelled, and people are staying at home to fight the disease in order to go back to our normal life as soon as possible. Of course, Hollywood is not an exception, and the Coronavirus had its effect in Hollywood. In March, SXSW Conference and Festivals were supposed to happen, but of course, it also got cancelled. In addition to this, everything is now closed, including Hollywood acting schools. Although there are some predictions of this disease, anyway, Coronavirus has left the world in a very uncertain situation. Being a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who takes affordable headshots for film industry professionals, I know that Coronavirus in Hollywood has left many people quite stressed. But in these tough times, it is essential to be calm, and remember that everything will be over soon if we follow all the safety rules and be responsible.

Number of Cases

Right now, there are more than 4 million cases across the world and approximately 300.000 deaths. The borders of countries are still closed, and most of the countries are in complete lockdown. In the United States, there are about 1,5 million cases and about 84.000 deaths, which is the biggest number in the world. At this moment, scientists are working on finding the vaccine. But as they have not discovered it yet, the number of infected people is rising, and many people are dying. Stock prices are falling, schools are closing, people are panicking and buying a lot of products in the stores. There were days when the stores’ shelves were empty. People were not able to purchase anything. Maybe panic is as dangerous as the virus is. So these days it is crucial to stay calm, be kind to each other. And remember that everything will be back soon.


As everything is closed and people are not leaving their houses, it is evident that the economy is being affected very severely, and the world needs time to recover after the Coronavirus. Maybe many companies will go bankrupt in the end, and others may find a way to survive. Anyway, there are other spheres, such as the IT industry, where different IT companies are benefiting from this situation. For example, these days, many people are using ZOOM for their classes, meetings, etc. And their shares also rose.

Effects of COVID-19

It is essential to state that it’s hard to comprehend precisely how enormous an effect this pandemic will have on the world, particularly the entertainment industry, a multibillion-dollar business that is based on different social gatherings, interactions, and, of course, travel. It is evident that this may take a long time, and Coronavirus will have its effect in Hollywood. But anyway, today, it is essential to stay positive and believe in the best scenarios. 

Economic Effect

Since updates on the outbreak of the COVID-19 started to rise out of Wuhan, China, in January, entertainment organizations and talent offices have begun forcing travel limitations. They asked a few representatives in influenced territories to work from home. Besides, they urged staff members to accomplish more video chatting and less in-person gatherings. The critical economic impact is already starting to include the entertainment and media industry. As reported, Disney shares have fallen almost 23%, while ViacomCBS has fallen over 51% so far this year. During past economic declines, shared utilization of mainstream society — going out to see the films, seeing a show — has frequently been seen as downturn confirmation. That is not the situation with COVID-19.

Condition of Entertainment and Media Industry

As media analysts state, every industry is going to suffer because of COVID-19, but one of the most significant impacts will be on the entertainment and media industry. People are not going out of their houses, and even if the situation calms a little bit, anyway people will still be afraid to attend places where there are a lot of other people. And if this continues for a long time, then the entertainment and media industry is going to suffer hardly. In the following article, you can find a fascinating and useful article about the impact of Coronavirus in Hollywood

Administrators, movie producers, operators, marketing specialists, and experts state that the circumstance is entirely exceptional. In recent years COVID-19 is the first epidemic which affected every country in the world and every industry, at the same time.


When more individuals become ill with the virus, they will probably remain at home, staying away from crowded places, Broadway theatres, and different performances. People stay at home and want to entertain themselves, so they will probably run various streaming services such as Netflix or Disney Plus, which offer motion pictures and shows. That’s why Netflix is doing very well in this situation. The shares have risen by 12.5 %. And if people continue staying at home for months, then obviously the streaming will keep growing. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I also stay at home these days, and watching movies or shows on Netflix helps me to stay entertained. As we can notice, the situation is very beneficial for Netflix in the financial aspect. Anyway, Coronavirus remains a massive danger in Hollywood and other parts of entertainment.


But this doesn’t mean that companies like Netflix do not have hard times. For example, the production of movies or TV shows stopped because of the lockdown. Actors are also staying at home and not working, so it is hard to film anything. Of course, this situation is not easy for actors too. Most of them maybe had massive projects which are now in a very uncertain condition. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who takes affordable headshots for actors, I know that many beginner actors were very excited about their projects, which got delayed, for an uncertain period. Right now, it is essential to stay positive and try to work from home if it is possible. I have an article which may be useful for actors in this situation. In the article, you can read about five things actors should do during COVID-19.

Everything which I mentioned above causes enormous financial losses. Production companies, crews, actors are losing vast amounts of money because of the delays. Many shows and movies may even cancel. So there is a discussion that maybe insurance companies may help in covering the financial losses. 

Movie Premiere Cancelations and Delays

In addition to this, there were many ready films that had to make the premiere, but the organizers postponed them. Most of them have moved until the end of the year; at that time, hopefully, the situation will be better. For instance, the famous James Bond movie “No Time to Die” was ready to be premiered in April, but the producers moved it to November. Of course, this is the most reasonable decision, because no one would go to theatres these days. I know most of us were waiting for the premiere of “Mulan”, but it also is postponed, which caused financial problems.

As a fan of the “Friends” show, I was waiting for their comeback episode, which they announced at the beginning of the year. But it is not being filmed now, and we hope that at least at the end of the year we will be able to enjoy the famous “Friends” comeback. The estimation is that the movie business lost approximately 2.15 billion, because of all the delays, and the number will rise if the situation with the virus lasts for months. In this sad situation, the only thing that we can do is wait and stay at home to help fight this deadly disease.

Events Cancelation 

Many of us were waiting for Comic-Con 2020, but it was also cancelled. It will take place in the summer of 2021, and hopefully, at that time, we will not think about Coronavirus anymore. The organizers were discussing postponing the events, but it is now clear that it will not be safe to attend the events. So the wisest decision is to cancel the events this year and come back in 2021. In the 50 years, this is the first year that they cancelled Comic-Con. Cannes has also been cancelled, which is also devastating, because many great movies had to be premiered during Cannes. And for the filmmakers, it is one of the best parts to create a film and eventually hand it over to the audience and listen to their feedback.

Alternative Solutions

Nowadays, it is essential to be flexible to come up with new ideas and ways to help the industry to survive. Most people are at home, and as they have a lot of free time, they need content to stay entertained. As everything is digital right now, organizers of different events are thinking of making a digital version of these events. For example, different movies may stream digital, and people will be able to watch them at home. Now the organizers are discussing whether it will be possible to make a digital event of SXSW.

Such big festivals are not only a necessity for filmmakers, productions, actors, etc., but these festivals are also great traditions. And many people are waiting for these festivals because it is a big part of the entertainment industry. Finding an alternative is not easy, but as the situation is critical, it is essential to experiment with ideas and come up with something new. 

Effects on Music Industry

Different music festivals are also being cancelled, of course. For example, well known Coachella has already got cancelled. Many famous artists had to gather in one place for this great festival, and fans were already planning their unforgettable days during Coachella. But of course, COVID-19 changed everyone’s plans at the last minute. Besides this, imagine the amount of the lost money, because of the full cancellation. It will take a long time to recover from this, and hopefully, in 2021, nothing will stop us from enjoying these great festivals with great music.

Many famous artists have introduced their schedules for the upcoming tours. But many of these artists already postponed the dates.

For example, Justin Bieber released a new album in the beginning of the year called “Changes”. Fans were already waiting to see their favorite artist on stage and listen to good music, but the decision was to postpone the concerts for a couple of months. Recently, many artists are giving online concerts and performances in order to entertain people and keep them positive. Of course, this is an excellent initiative because each of us can contribute to fighting these hard times. For example, a couple of weeks ago, Andrea Bocelli gave a live concert in the centre of Milan, in front of the Duomo Cathedral. Of course, there was no live audience, but many people were watching it from home, which was very emotional.

To Sum up

COVID-19 will have a huge negative impact on every country in the world. Each of us became part of this situation, and it is our responsibility to help to fight this disease. The world is facing massive economic problems, and as I already introduced, the entertainment industry has suffered the most. Throughout history, people faced many scary and challenging issues, which they managed to overcome. Of course, the recovery will not be fast, but I am sure we are strong enough to overcome this virus. In the future, look back and feel proud that we were able to fight and continue living. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I can’t wait to go back to my work. But now the only thing that I can do is stay at home, keep calm and try to think positively. Soon, step-by-step everything will be as it was before. I am sure that Coronavirus will no longer be a danger in Hollywood and in the world.

Paying taxes may not be one of your favorite activities to do. Everyone who has earnings pays taxes. Paying taxes is a responsibility, and although it may seem scary for most of us, anyway, it is something that we have to do. I know that the number of documents may seem scary, or the process may not seem very simple for you. But I am sure in time you will get used to it.

It is essential to know that you are not the only one, and in some time, paying taxes will become a very usual thing for you. Take a deep breath, relax, and read my guide on how to make tax season less stressful.

About Taxes

Most probably, you already know what taxes are. But to keep everyone on the same page, let’s briefly recap. Taxes are an amount of your income which you pay to the government. The tax season is from January to April 15th each year. During that time, you, as a taxpayer, must prepare all the necessary documents about your earnings during the previous year. The records should include your financial statements. It is always essential to prepare the right financial reports so that later no other problem rises. This will make the process smoother, and in addition to that, you will be more relaxed.

For the Los Angeles actors’ guide to filing taxes, this is one of the essential parts.

Each year you may pay different amounts of taxes because it very much depends on the income that you get during the year. And maybe you will not need to file a tax. In order to understand whether you need to file tax or not, it would be very helpful to check out this IRS website. This is the Internal Revenue System (IRS) site, where you will answer a couple of questions and understand if the filing is a requirement, or not.

What You Should Report on Tax Return

One of the essential parts of this process is making sure to report on your tax return the right amount of income that you have earned during the previous year. You should pay massive attention to this part because the amount of tax that you should pay relates to your income. You should file from which type of job did you earn your income and other details about your job. In addition to that, you must also report interest income, dividend income, alimony income, Social Security income.

And if you have any other income from other sources, then you should report it. In this process, you must keep in mind that you must report everything honestly. Because otherwise, you may face some kinds of problems. If you are filing taxes in 2020 for the first time, then you must keep up with the updates, because there are things that may have been changed about what you should report concerning your income. Today, the most reliable source is the IRS website, so I am sure you will find everything you need there.

The Required Documents for Filing a Tax Return

The essential documents that you will need with you are your tax ID or Social Security number, a document which shows your income and any deductions. You will receive different kinds of forms depending on if you are an employee or an independent contractor. In addition to this, your form may vary depending on a couple of aspects of your income. In order to be more aware of the list, I highly recommend you visit the IRS website.

This website is beneficial for you to understand which documents are required in your case. I’m sure during the tax season. This website will be a Los Angeles actors’ guide for you. It is important to know that for each individual, the documents may be different. So if your actor friend has collected a certain amount of types of documents, it does not mean that you must also collect those types of documents. So, do your research.

The Importance of Receipts

I highly recommend you to pay a lot of attention to keeping receipts. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I always keep the receipts that have to do with my business. In Los Angeles, actors guide on filing taxes, this is an essential part to keep in mind. I understand that it may be hard to keep all the receipts that are related to your career, but in time it will become a habit for you. There are a couple of ways of keeping the receipts.

One of the methods is to have a special electronic program and, with the help of your telephone, scan the receipts into that program. Collect them in the folder, and be careful not to lose anything. This will prevent you from losing the receipts, and you will be sure that they are in a safe place. It may not be effortless at first, because you may forget about it, but I highly recommend you to make this a regular part of your life.

Other Essential Documents

You may not use them, but in order not to have any kind of problems. You may also have a copy of last year’s tax return. Maybe it will be useful, so it is a good thing to be aware ahead of time and be prepared. Of course, there is a chance that you may need a piece of particular information from there, which may be required for the process. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who takes affordable headshots for actors, I know a couple of cases when an actor did not have last year’s tax return with him. And, it was needed in the process. And eventually, because he didn’t have it with him, different problems rose. This not only makes the process more complicated but also spends your precious time. So even if there is a slight chance that the government requires it, then you should take a copy with you. It is better to be prepared for every situation. I am sure during your Los Angeles acting career, you already understood how important it is.

Amount of Money That You Earned 

I am sure that many actors, especially the ones who are at the beginning of their career, may ask themselves, “What if I haven’t earned enough money?”. You have to step-by-step read about filing requirements and learn it. And, if your income meets the requirements, then you have to file a tax return. So, filing a tax is not a decision that you have to make; there are specific rules that apply to everyone. Everyone has to follow those rules, and if your income meets the requirements, then your responsibility is to file the tax return. So, even if you think that you didn’t earn much, I am sure this will be a motivation for you to make more next year. This may be difficult, especially at the beginning of your Los Angeles acting career. However, I am sure that hard work will pay off. You should start working hard right now. Here you can find useful tips on your Los Angeles acting career

Are Actors Self-Employed?

There are some actors who are self-employed, and there are others who are employees. If you are a self-employed actor, then that means that you are not working for someone else. For example, you can be a sole proprietor. There are also other conditions under which can be considered as self-employed, you can read more about it in the IRS site.

Considering President Trump marking the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), you might be thinking about whether it bodes well to enlist as an LLC, as the new expense conventions appear to be more business-accommodating than craftsman benevolent. That is something you’ll need to decide for yourself. For instance, in case you’re a worker and have representative costs, you won’t have the option to guarantee a finding for these costs—which fall under the classification of various separated derivations—under the TCJA until at any rate the year 2025.


As a result of deductions, your taxable income will be reduced. Hence the tax that you should have paid will be lower. I am sure this will be helpful in your Los Angeles actors’ guide in filing taxes in 2020. There are two types of deduction, itemized deductions, and standard deductions. Each year the IRS sets the standard amount of deductions. You will not need to show some additional forms for that deduction, and it is a standard amount.

In the case of itemized deductions, it is approved individually for each person. For the Los Angeles actors’ guide in filing taxes, it is essential to know which are the criteria you can deduct expenses. These criteria are as follows: the costs are connected to your acting, it is necessary, and it is not absurd or wasteful. As an actor, you have to be honest and record only the expenses which are related to the criteria mentioned above. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, below, I will introduce to you which deductions you can state as an actor. 

What Deductions an Actor Can State

There are certain deductions that actors can state. The deductions are the same for every actor. An example of a deduction can be, business travel, and in this case, the transportation and staying expenses can be deducted. Another example can be the fee that you pay to your agent or manager. This type of expense also will be deducted. If you took any kind of acting classes, for the improvement of your skills, then that is also a type of expense that will be deducted.

Any type of property which you bought and was needed in your acting can also be deducted as an expense. If you need to have your makeup and hair done for a job or a headshot session that is related to your Los Angeles acting career, then the costs of it will also be deducted. This list is very long, and you need to carefully examine it and understand which can be applied to you.

What Will Happen in the Case of not Paying Taxes

If you do not pay your taxes, then there will be very harsh punishments. You may get financial penalties and even end up in jail. Of course, prison is the severest punishment, and it is a rare thing to end up in jail. But there have been cases, so I am sure you don’t want to be one of them. Not paying taxes on time can also result in punishments. You will face penalties that can be very harmful to you.

For example, your bank accounts will be levied, or your properties may be seized. So, the cost is very high, and the time to resolve the problem is very long. And it is every taxpayer’s responsibility to follow all the IRS rules very carefully. I am sure you will not want to have challenging problems. So get informed about the process and pay your taxes on time.

As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I tried to include all the necessary information for you. Make sure to follow all the instructions and find out information about the process. At first, it may seem quite complicated, but after some time, you will get used to it. Follow this Los Angeles actors’ guide to filing taxes in 2020. I am sure the process will be easier for you.

5 Things Actors Should Do during COVID-19

Many of us have wondered what we would do if we happened to be on an island for a long vacation. Or, what we would do if imprisoned. The answer is everything that we do not manage to do in our everyday life. COVID-19 has given us a unique chance to do whatever we have been procrastinating for a long time, to work on ourselves or to open up new talents in us. I am a Los Angeles headshot photographer, and I have closed down my Glendale photo studio in mid-March.


It’s been about a month without headshot sessions. So, I’ve started to paint. I had zero knowledge about painting. Meaning, whatever I used to learn at primary school. I was lucky enough to purchase professional paints and canvases right before everything shut down. Online painting classes have come to replace my regular professional photography workshops and masterclasses.


With this blog, I would like to share my thoughts on what actors could do during the self-quarantine to grow as a professional and not to waste time while at home. Some people say that to be an actor one has to have natural talents. However, the professionals state that acting is a skill that one can develop over time. If you want to become the actor you dream of, to be confident and captivating, you should build your acting skills. And, now is the right time for that.

This article will help you enhance your acting skills irrespective of your acting level and where you are in your career. Everything mentioned in this article requires efforts and dedication. 

If you think it is impossible to strengthen your acting skills every day, I am going to prove you wrong. We will talk about working on movement, knowledge, text work, voice, and acting. All the elements mentioned above are crucial for you as a professional actor.

1. Voice

Some actors neglect the importance of voice; however, it is one of the essential instruments that an actor should work on. It includes your form of expression, articulation, breath support, and resonance.

1. Why Work on Your Voice?

Voice is one of the essential aspects of the character. If you want to get various roles, your voice has to vary, too. You cannot use your voice for all the roles you get. What if your character speaks twice as fast as you? You cannot develop a fast-paced speech overnight. It is long hours of out-loud reading and practicing. When my clients try to create various characters during the headshot session, they even change their voice, accent, and overall their way of speaking.


Los Angeles actors know how to make the headshot sessions fun. Professional photographers know that, too. So, for emerging actors, we use some of those techniques to help them relax and calm down. The professionals’ advice is to keep your voice flexible to embody any character you want. Collect as many “voices” and accents as you can. You have plenty of time now.

2. Voice Warm-Ups

If you google, you will find plenty of voice warm-ups for you to choose from. All shapes and sizes. You need to define which one works for you. The best option is to have a professional acting coach to select the best warm-up that will work for you. If you have a chance, try to schedule an online lesson with an acting coach. I am sure there are many acting coaches available online. Or, if you have done it beforehand try to remember what warm-ups you used to do with your acting coach. When you finish choosing the warm-ups now, it is time to schedule a 5-10 minute warm-up every day. As a professional photographer, I can tell you that consistency beats everything. When I was learning adobe photoshop, I would watch online lessons every single day. It would work for me better than a three-hour session just once a week.  

3. Articulation Exercises

Choose a literature piece that inspires you and start working on your articulation. Some actors often neglect this skill; however, it is vital to work on it. Don’t forget that every skill you are working on has to be on a daily basis. Add 5-10 minutes of articulation exercises to your daily routine of becoming a better actor. 

– Strengthen your Tongue

There are several articulation exercises that can help you strengthen your diction. Firstly, work on your tongue. Try to get more control over your tongue. You can do it by reading aloud or just talking to yourself whenever you are by yourself. 

– Work on your Articulation Muscles 

Learn tongue twisters and practice them as much as you can. Whenever I feel that my clients cannot relax during the headshot session, I ask them to say 3 pf their favorite tongue twisters. And here they are laughing. Besides, it helps them relax their facial muscles. Another good exercise is stretching the jaws and running the tongue around the walls of the mouth.

– Mirror Exercises

While doing all these articulation exercises sit or stand in front of the mirror. Choose a favorite story or a dialogue from a Hollywood movie and try to read out loud. If it is a movie dialogue, try to mimic their style and pronunciation. 

2. Move and Do Yoga

Every professional actor has to be able to move freely. Like with voice, being able to move and do any basic physical movement is essential for a good actor, not to mention how much more role opportunities get the ones who specialize in martial arts and other sports.

As we all have to stay home, and there is no hassle, it is the right time to do yoga. Find an online yoga course on YouTube and work on your body on a daily basis. Here is my favorite yoga channel. Day by day you will feel how flexible your body becomes. Like with any skill, you have to be consistent. Whenever I was fully booked for headshots, I would spare 5 minutes in between headshot sessions and stretch my body on my yoga mat in my photo studio. 

3. Enrich Your Knowledge

Quarantine is the right time to challenge yourself and expand your knowledge. Write down a list of books, scripts or plays you wish to read. Be realistic but don’t pity yourself. Ready at least 100 pages per day. It can be something about the Hollywood industry, acting skills, self-improvement. For example, I prefer reading books on photography business in Los Angeles, online marketing and psychological books as every headshot photographer has to know psychology as well. 

To improve your acting skills, some professionals advise reading drama plays and movie scripts. Most reading materials are available online, even for free. Reading helps you observe different characters, genres, language styles. After reading so much, you may start writing yourself. This is what some actors do after a certain time in the industry. If you don’t know what to start with here is a list of top 50 drama plays. 

Watch Online Movies, Theatre, and TV Shows

When you get tired of reading there comes another great way of expanding your knowledge as an actor. Watch a movie, or a TV show or an online drama play. Here is an excellent list of streaming theatres. Now, it is the right time to enjoy almost live performances. You have to engage in the industry to be able to get your niche in it. Challenge yourself to at least a movie or a performance a day. Even if you think some of those are terrible, you will also learn how you should not do and will be able to tell the good stuff from the bad stuff. 

4. Work with Text

Working with text is tied to your voice exercises. A good actor can bring any text to life and give it a unique interpretation.

1. Read out loud

Another thing that you can do while at home is reading out loud. This point is tied to your daily voice exercises and expanding your knowledge. It will help you become more confident with text, try various accents, voices, styles. Choose an article, a dialogue, a script, or just read the rest of my blogs. I have a lot of blogs on the acting industry in Los Angeles, networking in Hollywood, tips on how to choose the headshot wardrobe and get ready for a headshot session. Just make sure it is out loud. 


2. Learn a Monologue

As you have to stay home during this COVID-19 pandemic, it is the best time to learn a monologue. Some emerging actors think one cannot practice acting alone. In this case, it is not true. Pick at least two monologues a week and learn them. As you have a lot of time, you can record yourself and share them on social media and get comments. You can also send them to your acting coaches to get their professional feedback, too. Or, just send it to your headshot photographer who is sure to have some spare time to watch your video. In my practice, I always end up being friends with my headshot clients as they come back again and again with their friends and classmates.


Work on Your Acting Skills

COVID 19 has shut down all the acting schools. But it cannot stop you from improving your acting skills. Consider taking an online acting class. There are plenty now. My advice is not to just watch them as entertaining stuff. Take notes. The best thing about online courses is the opportunity to pause, to watch again or just to jump if it is too boring. From my personal experience, as once I was watching a lot of photography courses, I can say that Masterclass has the best stuff for online learning. Read more on Los Angeles acting career.

5. Keep Learning

The key to becoming a professional actor is to keep learning. Again, I’m not tired of saying that you have to learn on a daily basis. Don’t strive to be a perfect actor, just be better than yesterday. If your goal is to be perfect, it won’t work because none of us is perfect. Moreover, it may make you miserable. 

I may take you years to become a skilled actor. But hard work will take you anywhere. Use this time, and by the end of the quarantine, you will become a better actor, and you will not feel depressed or even lonely. Of course, nobody knows when this pandemic will be over, but we should not get miserable because we have no chance to do our jobs as an actor or, me, as a headshot photographer. Now, it is the right time to invest in yourself. If you had an idea to start an Instagram page or a vlog, it is the right time to do so. It will strengthen your acting muscles and improve your on-camera techniques. 

Organize online reads

If after all these you feel lonely and need some companionship, schedule a skype call with an actor friend and do dialogues with them. When you master the craft, you can do a live performance for your social media followers. Another motivating thing is to do all the mentioned above exercises on camera, record yourself and turn it into a success story that can become a movie or a YouTube vlog. Why not? Entertain your friends, family, and followers who are at home. Share the tips from this article with them with your samples. That will definitely be motivation not only for you but for the viewers as well. It can turn into a job as you get more views on Youtube and monetize them.


As a Conclusion

Now that you have plenty of time, you can plan your actors’ post-COVID-19 activities. Define what kind of actor you want to be. Comedy or drama? Stage or screen? The same is true for the photography industry. Nowadays, most of the headshot photographers in Los Angeles have turned into product photographers.

Consider taking an acting class. There is a huge selection of acting classes in Los Angeles. Google or ask your friends. Read the reviews. Explore their pricing. And make sure they are not a one-time or a one-weekend deal as it is crucial to keep the consistency even after the pandemic.

Photography Trends 2020

As we live in the 21st century, it is crucial to make sure that we follow the trends of our industry. Me, as a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who takes affordable headshots, I always try to catch up with everything new that happens in the world. This helps to develop my skills and provide quality products to my clients. Clients always look for something unique and fresh, and they want to have pictures that are one-of-a-kind. And the job of a photographer is not only to press the shutter button but also to make their imagination a reality and be creative with it.

Following photography, trends help you to be one step ahead from others and please your clients. It may seem that headshot rates in Los Angeles are relatively high, and one of the main reasons to explain this is that headshot photographers in Los Angeles always do their best to provide the best results. So, to have high demand in this industry, you have to be aware of photography trends and be able to use them in your profession. In this article, I will introduce to you the main photography trends of 2020. 

1. Vibrant Colors 

Pictures with bright colors help to grab the attention of people. Today, vibrant colors remain one of the main photography trends. As I am a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I always try to make not only trendy but also natural pictures. And sometimes, it may seem that vibrant colors are making a fake effect. But believe me, if you are doing it with style, it will catch an eye. If you are taking pictures of a client, at first, you will decide the style of pictures and then proceed to the photoshoot. If they like such kind pictures with bright tones, then I am sure you will have a lot of room to play with bright colors. When clients hire a photographer in Los Angeles to do photoshoots, they usually want to rely on their skills, and they want to trust the photographer’s sense of style. So don’t be afraid to experiment with vibrant colors. They are among photography trends in 2020.

2. Minimalistic Style 

Minimalism is always in photography trends in 2020. One of the greatest things about minimalism is that sometimes it can transform more meaning and feelings to the viewer than other pictures. Minimalistic pictures are always very compelling. It helps to focus on a specific object, and with the help of it, you, as a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, will be able to capture both emotions and meaning. Transforming some kind of idea or deep meaning through pictures is one of the hardest jobs of a photographer. Of course, it may not be simple at first, but as you master, you will notice that you enjoy taking minimalistic pictures. Especially when you are taking affordable headshots or fashion pictures, minimalistic style can create unique results. Right now, there are a lot of apps and tools which make pictures look overdone and not very appealing. So minimalistic style will make your pictures stand out.

3. Nostalgic Style

Especially nowadays, the vintage style is very trendy. Many people want their pictures to be in that style because it helps to have not ordinary pictures. The style of the 60s or 70s is very famous among clients. Also, this gives room for a lot of creativity. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I know that this will give you a lot of ideas. And also, there are a lot of different effects and tools which help to create nostalgic pictures.

For example, an effortless way to create a nostalgic style is the black and white effect. It immediately creates a vintage mood, and a little bit of creativity with clothes and background will create a total nostalgic style picture. It would also be interesting to mix vintage style with the modern style. If you do this moderately then, I am sure you will create one of a kind pictures.

4. Ecology

Right now, one of the main issues that the world faces is connected with ecology. Many headshot photographers in Los Angeles are trying to raise this issue with their pictures. And actually, they are very successful in raising awareness of such important problems. This became a photography trend in recent years, and many companies hire photographers in Los Angeles to take pictures for environmental projects. This helped to spread information to the whole world, and step-by-step make changes. One of the roles of photographers is not only to take pictures of different people but also help to raise issues through photography. And sometimes visuals can make more impact than anything else. So, another photography trends in 2020 is to choose some issues connected to ecology (and not only) and try to raise awareness about it through your art.

5. Symbolism

Symbolism is one of the most interesting and at the same time most significant or powerful tools in photography. Symbols help to transform a vast meaning, and photographers can experiment with it in different ways. This gives an opportunity to the headshot photographer in Los Angeles to express their thoughts and deep ideas in one picture. This is one of the most exciting photography trends, and the result can be exciting. I will highly recommend you to explore symbols and symbolism. It will help in the process of taking affordable headshots, and also it will be easier for you to make one-of-a-kind pictures. You just need to make your ideas into reality. Maybe you will work on one image longer than you did while you were taking pictures in other styles, but I want to assure you that it’s worth it. Here is a small video which can be a guide for you in understanding what symbolism is, if you don’t know much about it yet.  

6. Unusual Beauty and Raw Shots 

Especially in recent years, this photography trend started to gain popularity, and it is not losing its power until today. Nowadays, natural and unusual beauty is very much appreciated, and headshot photographers in Los Angeles are trying to include such kind of beauty in their photoshoots. This trend has shaped the industry, and now people are valuing natural beauty. Try to experiment with non-traditional things, and in the process, you will fall in love with what you do. This may be helpful while doing affordable headshots because nowadays, people hire photographers in Los Angeles to have pictures that show their real beauty without any additional attribute. This will be trendy for a long time because people are starting to value natural beauty more and more. 

7. 360 Photography Style

360 photography is one of the most exciting photography trends in 2020. This trend is especially beneficial for some kind of product photography. As the name tells, with the help of this technique, you will be able to capture the full product. These types of pictures are more appealing to customers. In addition to this, with the help of 360 photography, you can take magnificent pictures of different landscapes, buildings, or interiors. For example, if your client wants to take a picture of the room, you can use this helpful technique to show the room entirely. There are a lot of tools and technological updates that help to create such kinds of pictures. And also, it is always fun to experiment with new ideas and see how it changes the appearance of different objects, landscapes, etc. Here are a couple of unique locations in Los Angeles where you can try the 360 photography technique. 

8. Neon Lights

Neon has become widely popular, especially in the past couple of years. Clothing, neon objects, hair color is very much trendy right now. If you want your pictures to be famous or well-known to many people, I highly recommend you to use neon lights, colors or attributes in the photoshoot process. If you take affordable headshots in a neon-themed way, then definitely, you will have different results. Ultraviolet lights can make your pictures even more impressive and give it some kind of a vibe.

To make your pictures even more surprising, I recommend you to take photos at night. Because in the darkness, neon lights look more beautiful. For example, you can take a picture of an empty street and add neon lights to it. If you use neon lights correctly while taking affordable headshots, it will create a youthful atmosphere. And many people will like the energy that the atmosphere transforms.

9. Film Style Photography

It is exciting to notice how fast the film style photography trend is growing. As technology is upgrading a lot of new digital cameras are being introduced to the world. And every photographer tries to have the best camera. But even in the 21st century, many manufacturers are introducing film cameras. Today there are a lot of apps that provide many filters to create quick film style pictures. And even the most modern image can be transformed with the help of these filters. But the quality that film cameras make will not be comparable to any kind of filter. Of course, both film photography and digital photography create magnificent pictures, but for a professional headshot photographer, it is crucial to be a master of these both. 

10. Including All Ages

People of every age are beautiful and interesting. For every photographer, it is vital to make sure that with their pictures, they can capture the beauty of everyone and show their character. Many companies want to engage in their campaigns for people of different ages. This is part of the marketing activities because they want to show that their product or service is for everyone. The work of photographers is to show the real beauty of every age, and most importantly, demonstrate how the picture can be changed, when the age of a person changes. This idea is one of the essential concepts, which is very trendy now. For every photographer, it is important to include diversity in their pictures. Experimenting with ages is a great way to show creativity in work and help people to feel comfortable at any age. Photography can make a massive change in how people see themselves. So, as a photographer, you can make a positive impact on people. 

11. Showing Emotions

Emotions are one of the best friends of real and beautiful pictures. Headshot photographers in Los Angeles always encourage their models to show real emotions as much as they can. Firstly this helps to create a great working atmosphere, and secondly, this allows taking honest pictures. If you can successfully show the raw and real emotions of your client, then I am sure they will be very pleased, and your pictures will be very trendy. Encourage your clients to show their emotions and, at the same time, quickly take pictures of everything that they try to explain. You will get a lot of great pictures, and at the end of the photoshoot, you will not be able to choose which one is better. And, you will notice that at the end of the photoshoot, both you and your client enjoyed the process, and this is one of the most important parts.

As a Conclusion…


If you want to be a successful photographer, then it is crucial to make sure that you follow all the photography trends. As you may understand, some of those trends are not changing in years, but with every year at least one new trend shows up. Develop your skills and, at the same time, follow the trends and use them. You can even create your style or trend, and if it is good enough, I am sure it will become famous among different photographers.

One of the greatest advantages of the industry is that there are no specific rules. Your biggest skill is your imagination, and you should decide how you must use it. If you are a professional photographer and enjoy your job, then I am sure you will be successful in utilizing every photography trend in your photoshoots. Be curious and explore your industry as much as you can.

How Successful Models Network in Los Angeles

Networking is one of the essential parts of a successful career in any sphere. This skill may help you to open a lot of doors and be one of the most useful tools for you. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who does many affordable headshots for actors, I have already written an article about actors’ networking events in Los Angeles. This time, I want to talk about how models network in Los Angeles.

Today, the modelling sphere is also very competitive, and besides being beautiful and having the original appearance, you must even know how to network with people from your industry. You should know how to represent yourself in the best way, and get recognized by your communication skills. Of course, at first, this may seem scary because not everyone likes interacting with others, but believe me, if you master that skill, you will notice how it benefits you over time. So read carefully, and you will gain a lot of useful information on how models network in Los Angeles.

What is Networking?

Most of us know the meaning of this word, but it is crucial to make sure to understand the purpose and meaning of it entirely. Networking is communicating and building relationships with influential people from your sphere, which is an essential skill for a successful Los Angeles modeling career. One of the purposes of networking is to have connections with different people, who have passed a hard road in your field. Of course, this will not happen very fast, and you should know that you must put a lot of effort to build connections.

To start networking, you must be courageous to start a conversation with strangers and be confident enough. This may make you get out of your comfort zone. But you should take risks to enjoy the success fully. Try to be natural and create a friendly atmosphere. I am sure people around you will like to talk with you if they feel your positivity.

Where Should you Network?

If you wish to become a part of the Los Angeles modelling career, then you should know that it is a must to be aware of all the opportunities. Remember that even the dullest conversation can transform into something huge. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, who does affordable headshot, I know many cases when an elevator speech helped to make a great impression. The most important thing is to be confident. The best places to interact with other people from your industry are parties, fashion shows, and different events. I highly encourage you to be prepared before going to places like this. Do a little bit of research and get to know the ones who may attend these events.

Use social media, where the organizers of the event will probably post information about the events, and you’ll know the ones who may attend. Such kind of events always has its pages on Instagram or Facebook. Also, join different forums and other useful sites and try to be open and friendly during different jobs that you may do. So make sure to be informed and well prepared. This will help you to make a good impression.

Who Should You Start Networking with?

Models networking in Los Angeles may be hard because the competition is severe. Every model wants to be one step ahead of the others. But in every situation, if you show a friendly attitude to other models, then I am sure people around you will notice it. It would be great if you could have a good relationship with models. That’s because there will be different situations in life that you may need help from them, and also you may help them in response.

As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, who takes affordable headshots for many actors and models, I would highly recommend you to be in a good relationship with photographers as well. If they enjoy working with you, then I am sure they will introduce you to other photographers, designers, and influential people from the industry. You will notice that step-by-step, you get to know different famous people from your industry, with the help of your positive and friendly character. Here is a simple guide on how to behave while networking.

1. Get Acquainted with the Person

In the conversation, it is important to listen to what the other person talks about. Sometimes staying silent and carefully listening is better. Try to ask appropriate questions in order to get to know the other person better. Tell about yourself, also about your achievements and current projects. Always make connections, so that the conversation goes smoothly and in a fun atmosphere. I am sure you will have a lot of common topics with other people who are connected with the Los Angeles modelling career. So even in 5 minutes, you can have interesting and memorable conversations. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I know that in such a big industry, it may be hard to stand out of the crowd. But keep in mind that you are unique in your way, and it will be noticed.

2. Point out Your Uniqueness

As I have already mentioned above, the models’ network in Los Angeles may be quite hard. There are a lot of beautiful girls in the business, and you should bring something unique with you in order to stand out from the crowd. I am sure, right now, there are a lot of modelling agencies, fashion designers, headshot photographers in Los Angeles who are tired of ordinary appearances. They want to find someone who will bring something unique to them.

Today, if you want to be successful in your Los Angeles modelling career, you have to be natural and bring a new wave with you. And also, not only the appearance is important, but also what is inside of the person. Be smart, intelligent, kind, helpful, and you’ll see how the doors are opening for you. Because anything that is cliche is getting out of style. So find your uniqueness and represent it to others.

3. Choose Appropriate Dress 

When you make the first impression, usually, the way you are dressed is critical. Los Angeles modelling career is very much connected with the fashion industry. And many fashion designers will appreciate your sense of style and the way you are dressed. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I pay a lot of attention to how the model is dressed while I am taking affordable headshots. Sometimes many people ask me why Los Angeles headshot rates are high.

The most logical answer to that question is that headshot photographers in Los Angeles pay attention to everything in order to have quality pictures. Another important thing is that you should wear something in which you feel comfortable. During events you will not stay in one place, so choosing the most comfortable dress and shoes is the right thing to do. This will help you to concentrate on what is important during the evening, and not worry about what you are wearing.

4. Leave Alone the Phone

I know that sometimes it is hard not to get distracted by our phones. We are highly connected to our phones. But if you are planning to network during an important event, then a good thing will be not to pay attention to your phone for a couple of hours. Your biggest goal is to have conversations with people and make connections with them. If you sit in the corner and check your Instagram or Facebook profiles all the time, then people may think that you are not interested. If you want to be successful in the models’ network in Los Angeles, then you must fully engage in the process. Of course, it is not simple, but nothing huge happens effortlessly. So you must be very attentive and make your steps. Also, you should know that you are not the only one who is nervous during these events. There will be a lot of beginner models who came there with the same mission as you.

5. Be Confident

Confidence is the key to successful networking. In every situation, people will notice your confidence, and you will make a positive impact. If you want a little help during your first experience, you can ask one of your relatives or friends to join you. They may accompany you so that you know that you are not completely alone. I am sure when other models network in Los Angeles, they also ask their friends to come with them. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you must talk only to your friend for the whole evening. They are coming with you to motivate you and make you more confident, but you must spend your time getting to know other people. After some time, when you become more confident, you can already attend these events alone as you may know many people from the industry. 

6. Listen Carefully

As I have already mentioned above, listening is one of the main skills that you may need while networking. You should listen very carefully. In your industry, there may be a lot of professional and smart people who can give you precious advice. And even in a small amount of time, you can learn a lot from others. If you listen to what the other person says, it will make it easier for you to continue the conversation. And with the help of it, you will be able to keep the conversation smoothly. In addition to that, listening carefully is a sign of being respectful.

As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I always try to listen carefully to my peers, clients, colleagues, and other professionals from my industry. This helps to develop my skills day by day and make not only professional and affordable headshots, but also be aware of my industry. I highly encourage you to watch this informative video about listening. 

Continue Communicating after Events

You will network a lot during these events. And you will get to know a lot of different people. But after the events, it is important to continue keeping in touch with them. Because after some time they will forget about you, and by reaching to them after the events you will make them remember you. I highly recommend you to ask for their emails during your conversation. This channel is one of the most professional ways to get in touch with someone. Of course, there is also social media, but most fashion designers or photographers communicate via emails.

But with your peer models, you can also communicate through Instagram and Facebook. Also, you should always remember that most of the people that you may write to are very busy. It will take a couple of days and even weeks before they write you back. Even if you face a couple of rejections, then it will only make you work even harder and get your goals.

As a Conclusion…

If you are an introverted person, then networking may be scary for you at first. But if you want to reach something significant, then you should fight that fear. And after some time you will notice how you stop being scared. And you will start already feeling very comfortable while networking. The first thing that you must keep in mind is that you have to make a good impression. You will not make a deep connection with anyone during networking events, but because of your positivity, people will remember you. And it will be an excellent base to build up your relationship with them. If you want to have a successful experience while networking, then you should nurture your relationship with them. So don’t be afraid and start networking. Remember that you are not the only one on the journey. There are many models who start networking in Los Angeles.

10 Tips on Actors’ Career in Los Angeles

I am sure each day you listen or read a lot of advice on how to create a successful career. Me, being a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I also heard a lot of useful and important advice. But also in my career, I understood that being talented is never enough. Yes, if you are talented, then you will be noticed by many people. But besides talent, one of the most important things are the habits that you have as a professional, and how you develop them during your life. Habits can be a crucial part of any professional’s career, and more important is how you use and develop them step-by-step to become successful. I am sure every person has their own set of rules which are tested over time. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who does affordable headshots for many young actors, I want to share the ten most important habits that can improve actors’ career in Los Angeles. 

1. Start Developing Your Listening Skills Right Now

Sometimes listening is better than talking. Knowing how to listen carefully is an essential skill, which helps you to orientate in many situations. It is not important what your profession is, if you are not a good listener, then I would advise you to dedicate time each day to master that skill. Because if you don’t know how to listen, then you will never become advanced as a professional. If you think that you are not a good listener, or you get distracted easily, then don’t panic, because it is possible to develop that skill. Have a goal to listen more and get as much information and knowledge as you can. Try to listen very carefully and keep eye contact, because it always helps. If you tell yourself that in front of you stands a person who can transform a huge amount of knowledge to you even in 10 minutes, then I am sure you will be able to listen and master your listening skills in a very short time.

2. Read More Books

Books develop the imagination of a person. As we grow older, we become busier in this quick life and don’t provide enough time for reading. But even if we read for ten pages in a day, it will make a great difference. If you read books, it will not only help you to become more developed and educated but also will help to understand how to create the character better. You can share your book with other actors, and they might also recommend you the new ones. This will help to develop networking with others and discuss the book with each other. If you are going to play a fictional character from the book, then it would be more useful to read the book rather than the script. Reading books will also master your language skills and will help you to express yourself more beautifully. And in addition to this, reading books is one of the most interesting and enjoyable things in the world. The one who reads books always stands out from the crowd.

3. New Mentors

It is hard to reach any success if you don’t have someone who will guide you and help during the journey. Each of us has at least someone in our life who motivates us and helps to move forward. Teachers and mentors are one of them. They help us to learn something new and acquire new information. And most importantly, it is always a pleasure to know that there is someone who wants to spend their time educating us. They may give very valuable advice which can be crucial in your career. But if you understand that you are not growing anymore with them and that there are no challenges for you, then you can always try to find new people who will create new challenges for you, and help you to develop. Being among the headshot photographers in Los Angeles, I also have important people in my life who play a very crucial role. But in addition to that, I always try to get to know new people who may bring something new with them, and I can learn many new things from them.

4. Follow the News

Our generation is lucky enough because we live in the 21st century, where many sources have been created for us to get more information. In one minute we can be informed about something new which happened on the other end of the world. In such a fast-developing industry, every actor must be informed about what happens in the world. It doesn’t mean that you must be an expert in every aspect, but being aware will never hurt. For example, it will help you with networking. You will always find a topic to speak to someone who is not from your industry. And this will help you to be a developed and interesting person. Successful actors’ career in Los Angeles is very much connected with the trends, so remember to be aware of them always. As I am one of the headshot photographers in Los Angeles, I always try to be aware of not only what happens in my industry but also all over the world. For example, in order to take affordable headshots, I examine what the new trends are, how to do something new, and create one-of-a-kind pictures. 

5. Decrease the Time Spent on Your Phones

Yes, I know what you may think. Above I have mentioned that you must follow the news every day. And most of us mostly do it with the help of our phones. But there are many other ways to get useful information. They become one of the most important parts of our daily life, and we can’t imagine our lives without them. Actually, the reality is that most of the time, we are just killing time with our phones. And the majority of the information that we get may be useless. And that distracts us from the important things. If you want to have a successful actors’ career in Los Angeles, you must know that your time is the most valuable thing, and you should take care of it. When I do affordable headshots for many actors In Los Angeles, I understand how they value their time, and they are very careful about how much time they spend daily on their phones.

6. Learn From the Best 

If you are a beginner actor, it is important to make sure that you learn from the giants in the industry. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should do exactly what they do. But when you watch a movie with a famous and talented actor in it, try to analyze and learn something from their acting. I am sure there are many techniques which can be useful for you and will help you to develop your techniques. In order to have a successful actors’ career in Los Angeles, you should learn as much as you can. And I am sure there are many people who can help you with their own experience and with their acting style. Headshot photographers in Los Angeles, also always try to learn. Because there are many people who have passed a tough and valuable road, and we can learn a lot from their journey. I highly recommend you to watch this fascinating and motivating TED talk by Adam Driver. 

7. Network

I have a separate article for this important topic, because it is too important. I’m not tired of saying that networking skill is the most essential skill in the actor’s life. And not only in an actor’s life but also in every professional’s career. You should always try to get to know different people. Try to attend events, classes or other places where you can meet interesting people. As I am a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who takes affordable headshots for actors with low photoshoot rates, I know many cases, when because of a certain person, an actor becomes successful. Of course, talent always plays a huge role, but imagine if you get to know a famous director who tries to find a new and fresh actor for his or her movies. Wouldn’t it be great if he would suggest that role to you? Of course, it would. So start mastering your networking skills, and be ready to meet new people. Here are a couple of networking dos and don’ts about which every actor must know. 

8. Explore Hobbies

Being in love with what you do is one of the best gifts that one can have. But dedicate time on doing something completely different than acting. Find new hobbies, and try to explore them. This will help to relax and clear your mind, and eventually, you’ll notice that your acting becomes better and better. I am sure there are many activities which might interest you. You can attend painting classes or do some sports etc. The most important thing is that it has to be different from your profession. Don’t be afraid of trying new things and experimenting with your abilities. For the actors’ career in Los Angeles, this is very important. Being a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I also have my favorite hobbies, which help me to turn off my mind and fully relax. And that helps to become more creative and create one-of-a-kind affordable headshots with low photoshoot rates in Los Angeles.

9. Don’t Compare Yourself with Others

As I have already mentioned above, it is important to take an example from other successful and talented people. But today, in such a fast-developing industry, it is crucial to understand that you must have your individuality. So, don’t try to compare yourself to anyone, and more importantly, don’t try to be like someone else. This may lead to jealousy, and eventually, you will easily lose your uniqueness. Many actors may face such a problem, especially when it seems that nothing goes right. In every profession, each person has his or her path, which is built over time. Sometimes it may seem that for others, the road is more effortless. But believe me, it’s not. And it is always interesting how everyone is creating their road to success. Work hard, and don’t let jealousy take over you. 

10. Become Confident

If you are an actor, then being confident is one of the most important things for a successful actors’ career in Los Angeles. You should be confident enough to present yourself, to talk with other people, to create roles, etc. If you are not confident, then people will notice it, and it will affect your acting. Of course, at first, it may not seem simple, but in time you will already feel comfortable in most of the situations, and hence you will feel confident. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, while taking affordable headshots of actors, I always understand when the actor is confident and when not. And I always try to create an atmosphere where it would be comfortable for them to pose for the camera. So, in every situation, you must be calm and try to feel and behave confidently. 

To become successful, at first, you must have a clear and focused mindset. You should develop habits, which will guide you through your acting career. As I have already said in the beginning, there is no specific rule for this, and each of us can develop our own set of habits. I am sure these habits will only help you to become a better version of yourself and be more powerful day by day. We have read many success stories of how people reached significant heights, and if we explore their journey, we will notice that most of it are because of the habits that they have. So in order to have a successful actors’ career in Los Angeles, develop your own sets of habits with the help of this list, which I have shared with you.

Actors' Networking Events in Los Angeles

Every actor dreams about a successful career in Hollywood. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, who does many affordable headshots for actors, I know that many young talents work hard to be one of the most successful actors. But in this sphere, being talented and having a good portfolio is not enough. In order to stay in the game, you must develop your networking skills during your whole life. Networking is one of the essential skills that every actor must-have. It makes your circle of connection bigger and helps to get to know many people who may play a massive role in your life. Many actors fail at the beginning of their careers. One of the reasons, which explains this may be that there are many barriers, which are hard to conquer if you don’t know how to network. So, as a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I am going to share with you why networking is so important, and give you an easy guide on how to behave during actors’ networking events in Los Angeles. 

Why Networking is Beneficial for Actors

Networking doesn’t mean that this is the only way to get your desired roles in the movies or become successful. It means that in order to become one step closer to your dreams, you must meet people and get yourself known by other actors, directors, writers, etc. Maybe during one of the actors’ networking events in Los Angeles, you may meet a director who tries to find new and interesting talents for the upcoming movie. This is also an excellent opportunity to learn from people who may have been longer in the industry. Even if you talk to them for 5 minutes, you can get a lot of valuable information and use it for your future career. For headshot photographers in Los Angeles, 5 minutes is a whole eternity to capture beautiful pictures. So even in 1 minute, it is possible to make an impression. As I am a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I also try to learn from others and, at the same time, have an opportunity to share my knowledge.

How to Start Networking Right Now

For most of the actors, one of the first questions is “ How to start networking?”. At first, it may seem hard, because you may think that you don’t have enough experience. Especially when you are fresh to the industry, everything is strange for you. But once you start communicating with other people, you’ll notice how even the first experience helps you to develop your networking skills. If you are in Los Angeles, I can assure you that there are many ways that you can meet people from the industry. You may meet with someone accidentally, and then that one meeting can change your life. I am sure you have read or watched a lot of success stories like this. But let’s not rely on life’s fate and start creating your path yourself. So to be well prepared here are a couple of tips that every actor must be familiar with.

Attend Acting Classes

One of the ways to start your networking journey can be by attending acting classes. I will recommend you to get involved in an acting class which has a good reputation. Such courses arrange their events, and many people from the industry attend those events. This will help to meet other actors, agents, directors, and get to know many talented and well-known people. Those classes will not only be a source of new information but also you will have an opportunity to communicate with other beginner actors. I am sure that they also can recommend some events or places which you must check out. And it is always useful to talk with people who share the same path as you do. They may tell you about things that you have never heard or thought about. Here you can find a couple of best acting classes in Los Angeles.

Find Special Events

As I have already written above, those classes arrange their events. The best acting classes may organize huge events for special holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.), so you don’t need to miss those events. But there are also other ways to find actors’ networking events in Los Angeles. You can ask other people from the industry for some recommendations. But if you don’t know whom to ask, you can use the unlimited amount of information that the internet provides. If you search, you’ll notice that many events get published in famous publications. Even if you find a huge event that is far from where you live, I highly recommend you to do your best to reach that place and attend the event. For example, Los Angeles is one of the centres of such events. Of course, big cities may host more significant and more influential events, but if you are from a small town, that doesn’t mean that you are unable to attend those events. 

Social Media

And of course, today, one of the best ways to get new information is social media. With the help of social media platforms, it became more comfortable and faster to connect with people and find what you want in a couple of minutes. I am sure there are many groups which are posting things that actors like you may need. Try to join those groups, and you’ll get a massive amount of information. There are many blogs that will also be very useful. In one of my articles I wrote about them, so you can check it out here. Don’t be afraid even to start your small group. You can create a group that will connect with other beginner actors, and this will make it easier for you to acquire useful information. You may post questions, and I am sure many people will give you their answers. So make sure that you follow certain pages and keep yourself updated. 

How to Behave at Actors’ Networking Events in Los Angeles

As I have already said, networking events are full of influential people in the industry. Many producers, directors, writers try to find new talents who will be part of their stories. They try to find people who are new and who will bring fresh waves with them. This doesn’t mean that you need to look extravagant or do crazy things to get noticed. There may be many people in the game, so to stand out from the crowd, you need to be open and communicate easily. Don’t try to be fake; just be who you are and try to feel comfortable. Nowadays, people appreciate honesty more than fake things. Start a conversation with people, and you’ll see how smooth it will go forward. Grab your favourite drink, and just enjoy the evening and appreciate the opportunities that you have. For taking beautiful and affordable headshots, most of the headshot photographers in Los Angeles also try to find people who are not ordinary and have their unique energy. 

Build Up the Relationship

Attending actors’ networking events in Los Angeles and communicating with people is not enough. You should try to keep in touch with them even after those events. This may be a little bit hard at first, but when you start communicating with other people, you’ll see how many topics you can share. You can suggest they meet and talk about the actor industry, your profession, etc. Networking doesn’t mean that only you need to have a good relationship with others. Other people also may need to communicate with you. So your professional relationship may be beneficial for everyone. This process is not simple, but it gets more exciting and easy in time. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I always try to build relationships with other photographers, clients, and people from my industry because there is always a place to learn from them, share my knowledge and just have a great circle of connections. 

Become More Confident 

I know that it is tough to get out of your comfort zone and start to try new things that you have never tried before. But as you are an actor, you need to know that confidence is the key to your success. You must be courageous enough to talk to strangers and introduce yourself to them in a proper way. But if you feel shy at the beginning, you can ask someone to come with you to actors’ networking events in Los Angeles, so that you don’t feel alone. Suggest one of your parents, siblings or friends to accompany you. But remember that this doesn’t mean that you must talk only to your friends. They are there to help you to be more confident, but you should try to communicate with other people and introduce yourself. This is what you should do in order to survive in the industry, so start to master your skills beginning from today. 

Quality not Quantity

At the actors’ networking events in Los Angeles, you’ll meet many people, but it is important to understand that you don’t need to get close to everyone. This will disturb you, and others may build a wrong idea of you. For example, I know a lot of cases when someone made fast relationships with others, and after a short time, they started not to talk to each other. When you attend actors’ networking events in Los Angeles, try to make deeper and quality contacts with the ones to whom you speak. Nothing happens quickly, so you will work hard and try to nurture your relationship with others. Your biggest goal is to step-by-step become closer to your dream career, so be wise in your moves. If you talk to someone, and suddenly understand that he or she is not the one with whom you would like to have contact, then it is not shameful to stop talking to them. It is essential to be patient and flexible.

Provide Your Help to Others

Remember that this industry is full of people who may also need your help. The truth is that for many people, it would be important to know how you can help them before they help you. It is crucial to listen to people carefully and understand their needs. If you go to those events, only for satisfying your needs and only for finding people who will help you, then I want to tell you that you are not on the right path. You should try to offer them your help as well. For example, if someone is filming a movie and he or she needs a particular prop which you have, it would be very useful if you could offer it to them. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles who does affordable headshots, I always try to help the ones who may need my professional advice, skills, or something else. This is very important in the professional world, so I advise you to be as open as you can.

In Conclusion…

In every industry, you need to work very hard to achieve your goals. You can’t effortlessly reach any kind of heights. Especially if you are an actor in Hollywood, you must be aware that each year thousands of people try to make their steps in Hollywood, and you should move forward in a persistent manner. As you saw, one of the most important skills of this journey is networking. Even if you are the best in industry, knowing how to network will lead you forward in many situations. If you can’t communicate with others, then it may be impossible to attract the attention of many famous people. There are no specific rules for this. All you need to do is to be natural, open, and easy to communicate with. Be ready to meet with different people, and don’t be afraid of diversity. So I highly recommend you to start mastering your networking skills right now and discover actors’ networking events in Los Angeles.

Romantic Spots for Photoshoot in Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles is one of the most photogenic cities in the world. It has a lot of beautiful locations, where you can have affordable headshots, and at the same time, admire the scenery. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I always try to find new places. And I always wonder how many appealing locations there are in this city. In my previous article on amazing locations for headshots in Los Angeles, I have already made a list of interesting places for photoshoots. Now I have decided to make a list of the most romantic spots. I am sure that many couples have already done a lot of photoshoots in photo studios in Los Angeles. So if you want to find a new place, which will be completely different from the photo studios in Los Angeles, you need to start to explore this beautiful city. There are many places where you can do photoshoots with low photoshoot rates. The weather here is always sunny and warm, which is another advantage of doing photoshoots in Los Angeles. So, here are a couple of the most beautiful and romantic spots in Los Angeles, which you definitely should check out. 

1. Universal Studios Hollywood

Many people who think about Los Angeles, the first thing that comes into their minds is Hollywood. Today, one of the most famous destinations of Los Angeles is Universal Studios Hollywood. Each day hundreds of people go there to explore the backstages of their favorite movies. Even if you don’t have any connection with cinematography, I am sure in childhood you had your favorite movies and dreamed about being in one of them. You can explore all the locations that you once saw in a movie. And a headshot photographer in Los Angeles can take pictures of you in those places. I am sure it will be a fascinating experience to feel like a movie star for a day and capture those moments forever. This is one of the most magical and interesting places for doing a photoshoot in Los Angeles. You can get more information about Universal Studios Hollywood here

2. Disneyland Park

Most of us grew up watching Disney cartoons and movies. Our childhood is connected with most of them. Disneyland has a specific atmosphere that transforms us into our childhood. This place is definitely not only for children, and everyone can have a wonderful time there. In order to make the photoshoot in Disneyland even more appealing, you and your loved one can dress up as a prince and princess from your favorite cartoon. You can pose in the themed places of Disneyland, or in front of the castle. This is the simplest way to become a prince and princess for a day. Imagine how interesting the final result will be, and in the future, you can show the pictures to your children and tell them how that magic happened. Photo studios in Los Angeles also arrange these types of photoshoot at a very professional level. But the photoshoot will be better if it is done in Disneyland. The entry price of Disneyland is around $90. 

3. Gondola Ride

Venice is famous for its gondola rides, and many couples go there to feel the romance of those rides. But fortunately, you can experience gondola rides not only in Venice but also in Los Angeles. This is one of the few ideas, which can’t be made into reality in the photo studios in Los Angeles. So, right now, it’s the best time to arrange this photoshoot. You can take your loved one to Redondo Beach, where you can have a gondola ride and have a photoshoot in such a romantic atmosphere. Take with you your favorite wine, and enjoy the time spent together. This is a perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your significant other. It is also an easy way to relax from your daily life. You can go there in the evening, when the sun has already set, this will help to catch magnificent pictures and enjoy the breathtaking view. This is one of the most romantic ways to do a photoshoot in Los Angeles. 

4. El Matador State Beach

One of the most popular beaches of Malibu is El Matador State Beach. It has beautiful rocky surroundings, and the water is very clear. Many couples visit this beach because it has a special and very romantic atmosphere. You can just lay down on the sand and listen to the sound of the water and enjoy each other’s company. But as the view is breathtaking there, it is a perfect place not only to relax but also to do a photoshoot. As a headshot photographer in Los Angeles, I would recommend you to go there during the sunrise or sunset, because at that time you will most probably get the best pictures. There are a lot of guides on how to choose the best hours of sunlight, so I am sure you will manage to catch the perfect lighting. Los Angeles always welcomes its visitors with warm and sunny weather, so the weather will help your pictures to be magnificent. It is possible, with very low photoshoot rates, to have a very romantic photoshoot in Los Angeles, take affordable headshots and enjoy your loved one. 

5. Exposition Park Rose Garden

Another romantic spot for couples in Los Angeles is Exposition Park Rose Gold. If you are tired of fast, crowded and dirty city life, then this place is what you need. Most of the headshot photographers in Los Angeles will recommend you to go there in spring because, at that time, flowers bloom, and the colors will let you have one of a kind pictures. You can implement different ideas there, and with the help of a headshot photographer, get affordable headshots and eventually, your desired result. Take your significant other and hide in this place full of colorful roses and romance. Although in the photo studios in Los Angeles, you will get a high level of professionalism and great quality, but there are certain things that are impossible to arrange indoors. Besides doing a photoshoot with low rates, you can also visit the museums which are located in the park. You just need to check the open hours and days. Be ready to explore the park and take affordable headshots in such a beautiful place.

6. Greystone Mansion

If you want an elegant and classic location for your photoshoot in Los Angeles, then you must head to Greystone Mansion. It is not only a historic place but also a spot with interesting architecture. A lot of movies were filmed, and festivals were held here due to its loveliness. You can have a fairy tale photoshoot there, and enjoy the beautiful garden. This is a perfect option for you if you want to take affordable headshots with a great backdrop. The mansion is located in Beverly Hills, which is one of the most popular places in Los Angeles. To correspond with the style of Greystone Mansion, I would highly recommend you to wear something classic. In this way, it will be easier for you to choose your look for the photoshoot. In the garden, there is a beautiful balcony, where a headshot photographer can take pictures of you during sunset. 

7. Runyon Canyon 

If you and your significant other love adventurous activities like hiking, then keep in mind Runyon Canyon. A photoshoot in a place like this will be quite unusual, but the final result will be very original. Headshot photographers in Los Angeles, often encourage their clients to experiment with different ideas and try new things. You can hike with your partner to the top, and enjoy the magnificent view with each other, and take a lot of pictures with the view of city lights. Remember that the city lights are one of the most beautiful backdrops. You can take great pictures also on your way to the top, which I am sure will be full of emotions.

8. Wayfarers Chapel

Wayfarers Chapel has amazing architecture and design. Its surroundings have a beautiful nature, where everyone can find peace. To have a photoshoot here, you need to book in advance and examine the rules of the Wayfarers Chapel. There are certain days and hours when you can do a photoshoot there. A lot of couples arrange their wedding photoshoots there, but I am sure a regular photoshoot will also be very appealing. Most of the headshot photographers in Los Angeles would recommend you to investigate the area and understand where you want to capture pictures. This will help you not to waste time, and fully enjoy the process. I am sure you want pictures, which will be lovely even after many years.

There are a lot of beautiful spots in Palm Springs, where you can have a magical backdrop and effortlessly capture beautiful pictures. In Palm Springs, you can enjoy the gifts of nature, and add them to your photoshoot. For example, there are appealing mountains, sandy beaches, etc. There are no rules on how to arrange a photoshoot there. You can decide any theme, and a headshot photographer in Los Angeles will take great pictures. Photo studios in Los Angeles, of course, can’t provide such kinds of backdrops.
