Actors: Where should you get your headshots printed?

ReproductionsThis is a question I get asked quite often. In my experience, the absolute best place to have your headshots printed is Reproductions, especially for my New York Headshot clients. Located in Midtown, Reproductions provides printing, retouching, and even demo reel services. When it comes to printing you can’t discredit the use of a professional lab to handle your work. For headshots this is vitally important as the print you hand a casting director can often make or break your first impression. No point in spending hundreds of dollars on those awesome headshots, only to skimp out on getting quality prints done.

A low quality print will often have muddy, washed out colors and printed on a flimsy paper stock. A high-quality print, on the other hand, has vibrant colors, rich shadow areas, and feels solid on a high-quality paper stock. Reproductions does this and more. In addition to printing, they can also handle the layout and cropping of your image which includes putting your name on your headshot. If you’d like your resume on the back of your headshot, they offer an option for that as well. Whatever print related needs you have they have you covered and the customer service is top notch. Trust me, I’ve worked with several labs in the city over the years and they are by far the best for printing headshots.

Actor Headshots: Michael Gonrig

male actor headshot

Had an awesome session with theater actor Michael Gonrig. It was an overcast day, but we managed to get some rockin’ new headshots for him. He needed something a bit more edgy, but not too much. This was both our fav from the shoot and I think this one in particular strikes a nice balance between being edgy yet approachable. Excellent headshot of this awesome gent. Be on the look out for him!
