On Tuesday I packed all my photo-stuff again – but this time my way was only a 25-minutes-cab-ride.

Singer/actress/speaker ANTJE KOHLER had asked me for headshots at her beautiful home. I really love shooting at different locations!  Pictures will always look more different that way, and I like the challenge of finding the best places/backgrounds for portraits in a flat – not only pure white for all of the pictures, but still clean enough for what most actors need: Photos for auditions, focused on the person, the face, and not a too vivid, distracting background. Lots of space is helpful most of the time, but sometimes (like in this case) a long corridor which leads into another room is just perfect.

Another advantage of shooting at someone’s home is that all of the person’s clothes are available! Antje usually dresses herself rather elegant, so she had beautiful dresses and tops, as she is also working as a singer at weddings, as background-singer  and soloist.

But we also tried to find a more casual outfit too, and after a while we did. 🙂 Photos with different stylings/types are important for applications – in general, but especially helpful for actors who need to show with just one picture that they are perfect for the one role they are applying for. So if there’s a variety of photos to choose from, the chance of being invited for an audition might be bigger. And it’s of course always nice to show different types of pictures on an actor’s/singer’s website. 🙂

Here’s one of my favorite pictures of this portrait-session, I just love the matching colors and the materials! And the cheekbones!
