L.A. Headshot Photographer To Return February Feb 28-Mar 2

 

Los Angeles 

headshot photographer Jeffrey Nicholson announced a fast return to The Actor Factory after a sold out 3-day trip in January.

 

The top photographer will be at the studio February 28-March 2.

 

He will be shooting headshots of actors, musicians, speakers, comedians, models and more.

 

Nicholson cuts his L.A. rate in half, and all sessions include hair and makeup with a professional stylist, and a free DVD of all images, delivered within minutes upon completion of your session.

 

Not getting the auditions?  Your headshot may be working against you.  Make sure you present a headshot that is current, accurate and professional.  If you have been waiting to get the headshot you need from a trusted professional, this is your chance. He has shot some of the biggest stars in Los Angeles, with pictures even helping to launch the careers of many film and television stars.

 

"A headshot is your single-most important marketing tool," said Casting Director Chris Freihofer.  "It not only tells Casting Directors what you look like, but also tells us how seriously you take yourself and your acting career.  Sure, you can get a friend with a nice camera to take your picture, but it will work against you. A low-budget headshot looks just like what it is. A professional  headshot  photographer not only knows how to capture a good image, but how to capture personality as well.  Go to the next level and let a professional create the image you want to convey."

 

Freihofer also stressed an experienced headshot photographer brings casting experience to the session.  "A professional doesn't just take a great image of you. They help design your shot for the roles you would play, and help you create your marketing materials.  Jeffrey knows what's casting, knows what actors are successfully using as materials, and knows how to create materials that will help get you seen by casting directors."

 

"My suggestion is to always make sure Hollywood producers are seeing the type of headshots they are accustomed to seeing every day in L.A.  That way they feel more comfortable selecting a local actor for the role.  Believe it or not, it is little things like that that can make a difference," Freihofer said.

 

To book your appointment now, call or text 310.383.6200.

Freihofer Brings Audition Intensive Back to Dallas 

 

Film and television actor and casting director Chris Freihofer will bring his Audition for Film & Television 1-Day Intensive back to Dallas February 28 and March 1. Freihofer only brings the workshop to Dallas twice per year.

 

Freihofer has appeared in dozens of film and television productions like LONGMIRE, PARKLAND, FRIDAY NIGHTLIGHTS, THE EX-TERMINATORS, Oliver Stone's W and is known to many as playing attorney Dan Wachsberger in season 5 of the acclaimed series BREAKING BAD.

 

in 2004 he opened Freihofer Casting, and has cast dozens of feature films and hundreds of commercials.  His casting credits include the films AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, Terrence Malick's TO THE WONDER, THE KILLER INSIDE ME and the recently-released William H. Macy directorial debut RUDDERLESS, starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Felicity Huffman and Laurence Fishburne. View his credits by clicking HERE.

 

Freihofer is also the director and founder of The Actor Factory.

 

The workshop is a one-day intensive, helping actors hone their skills in on-camera auditions.  It has been presented in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Arkansas and Missouri. It is intense, enlightening, informative and encouraging, designed to uplift actors about the stressful audition environment, and provide to them key insights about their approach to future auditions.

 

 

Using scripts from current television series and recent motion pictures, Freihofer puts participants in front of the camera with prepared material in mock audition scenarios and will offer helpful, constructive coaching.  Participants are guaranteed to work two separate scenes during the day.

 

"Auditioning is unlike any other part of the acting process," he said. "It is here we are at our most vulnerable. We are focused more on pleasing the gatekeepers than playing the scene and we forget to trust our instincts.  This workshop de-mystifies the audition process and encourages actors to always make the 'right' decision in the approach to the role. No more guessing if what you are doing is wrong.  I promise you, this will be an amazing day."

 

 

The workshop is held from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm and open to ages 16 and up, regardless of experience.

 

The workshops are limited to 12 participants each day.

 

This workshop is not an Actor Factory event, but is hosted through STAGE, in Dallas.  Cost is $190 for STAGE members,  $240 for non-members (price includes one-year STAGE membership)

 

For more information, email stage_online@sbcglobal.net or call 214.630.7722.  Do not call The Actor Factory for information or registration to this event.
