Studio Photoshoot: Model Portfolio
As an actor myself, I realise that money is always tight, so I’ve created the three easy, competitive packages below, you choose the one you want. If you’ve been referred by an agency you may get discounts on these prices. Please Whatsapp me for more details.
They all include a short intro video for online casting databases1

3 headshots (you select & choose processing options)
processing: light, colour, temporary blemish removal, skin smoothing & selective sharpening, focus effects, black & white with colour tint included
Update Your Headshots: the agents know you. You haven’t gained or lost significant weight, but it’s been 8 months and/or you look a little different due to age – especially if you’re young, haircut, facial hair, dental work…
Bring: you know what to bring.
Select more photos at R150 per photo for processing.
In general, more photos will give you a better return on investment since you’ll just be paying for one setup and you’ll be paying less per photo – but this is your career and ultimately, you make the decision.
WHERE: These packages are all for shoots at my Melkbosstrand studio, inside Blessings. Cnr. Commaille Rd & Eleventh Avenue, Melkbosstrand.
WHEN: Please Whatsapp me to make a booking at least 24 hours before your shoot. I share my studio with creatives who offer all kinds of art and crafts classes and I need to schedule shoots accordingly. Weekend shoots are great for me, but we can schedule you in the week too.
Always remember: I’m just a guy with a camera, I understand the entertainment industry your side. I’ve set up these packages to make it easier for you, but if you have your own ideas, I’m willing to negotiate a fair exchange to get you the photos you need.
- Online casting databases: YouMe&Co, Portfoliopad and others. If your agency subscribes to these services you don’t have to rely on the booking agents to remember who you are and to send your photos in response to casting notices. Directors, producers and casting directors can search these databases to find talent like you and that serves you as a performer!
