Actor Headshots by Geoffrey Donne

Actor Headshots by Geoffrey Donne
Want to increase your chances of nailing that major audition you dreamed about? Eager to present your application in the most catchiest way? NOW is the time to perfect one of the crucial elements of your profile – your actor headshots. Alas, In Los Angeles, the city flooded with industry wannabe professionals you have to be lucky to find a real expert in portrait photography.
Here at FD, we have seen a good deal of headshot submissions and most of it were decent yet unexceptional with only a few worth the blog post. Yet, the celebrity photographer Geoffrey Donne has really impressed us with both astonishing and memorable quality of the photos he was kind enough to present.

Let us share the photographer’s prolific biography and the projects he worked on:

       “Geoffrey Donne an multi-award winning professional photographer, based in Los Angeles. Over a 25-year career he has worked professionally in many creative fields.  As a writer, director, producer, and actor, his independent film projects have ranged from science fiction actioners to large-scale period films, as well as music videos, documentaries, and hard-hitting political thrillers. He have created corporate and commercial content, both for print, broadcast, as well as streaming content.

He served as Director of Photography and camera operator on over 30 series, both network and cable, including the Emmy Award winning season of The Amazing Race for NBC.  His still photography has appeared in numerous publications, catalogues, websites, and professional portfolios. He spent several years in media intelligence, serving most of the major and mini-major motion picture studios.

What is Geoffrey’s philosophy on headshot and portrait photography and why is it given such importance?
      “As an actor and celebrity portrait photographer, Geoffrey Donne believes actor headshots have one job – to get the actor in the room. To clearly show a Casting Director how to hire them. He creates casting and branding specific shots that create opportunities, images that connect with the viewer, in a relatable, personal way.  Geoffrey approaches headshot and portrait photography from the unique perspective of working on both sides of the lens, utilizing his directing and acting experience to create a dynamic, inspiring, low stress yet highly creative environment that inspires the very best in his clients.
      Headshot and portrait photography is one of the few storytelling mediums where you answer to no one but the client, and your own creative integrity. No studio, no Executive Producers, no suit with a budget and an agenda. I get to serve my fellow artists in an intimate, powerfully connected way, and the results are immediate and profound. Excellence thrives in such a space.”

How was your experience of using FD studio for your sessions?
      “I love outdoor portrait work.  It’s easy to find and manipulate ideal light, with great soft focus backgrounds that create the impression the talent is actually working on a show, on location, with a cinematic vibe and energy.  Sometimes however, such as with the recent suffocating heat wave in Los Angeles, shooting on location simply isn’t practical.  That’s when I turn to FD Studios.  Their very competitive pricing means I don’t have to operate a high overhead studio, maintain studio equipment, or deal with any of the hassles of managing a brick and mortar location.
      With the diverse range of shooting studios, backdrops and practical areas, I can shoot flash only, or merge natural light and flash, creating completely customized results for each individual’s needs.  With some careful pre-planning, avoiding the hottest hours, even during heatwaves, the portable a/c and open air environment means comfortable, creative control, with consistently stunning results. The staff is friendly and helpful, the facility well maintained, parking and getting to the downtown location is manageable for both clients and crew.  FD Studios is a potent asset in my business model, one that’s opened up new opportunities and options.  I highly recommend FD Studios. “

Stage D was chosen as a creative space for this session. Working with  both natural light and strobes this stage provides the best lighting solutions in any instance. With lots of space to encompass, stage D gives the opportunity for creating different diverse looks for photo and video projects. Towards the sunset the studio gets plenty of great, warm light through large south-west facing frosted windows. Have a look at our calendar for availability, prices and contacts on our WEBSITE.
