This is amazing. I'd buy you a beer for this if I could.

Regarding specific photographers, I know this question probably gets asked a lot, but would anyone have any good recommendations for a solid photographer? Or perhaps a resource for finding a good one?

You obviously didn't read the beginning of this thread.

I tell you how to find a photographer for YOU in the first posting in this thread. I don't know what more you can need.

I have my favorites, but they might not be the best for you.

As the other photographers stated above, make sure you keep things real and natural. A good way to avoid becoming stale while waiting for the shot to snap is to turn away. Then look back and find camera. It will help you remain natural and full of life, so to speak!

Chopping off the top of the head. When too much of your head is chopped off, it makes it a little difficult as to what you really look like. Cropping off a small part of the top of your head is forgivable, but not to the extent where you look like a Hannibal Lecter victim.

I can not tell you how much ^^ that happens!! I used to tell people to avoid it, but it got to the point that I am truly getting tired of repeating myself. So, I am posting here for everybody to see!

This old post has some great info. I do have another question. Is it inappropriate to have a theatrical head shot where one is smiling slightly?

The rule that you have to be serious in a theatrical headshot and smiling in a commercial headshot is starting to go away.

My theatrical agent uses my "commercial" headshots for comedies and other light hearted stuff.
