For over two decades, professional headshot photographer, Gideon Dominguez, has witnessed the rising trend of heavily edited portrait imagery. Now, however, he advises that an authentic headshot, which showcases the sitter’s natural qualities, is more likely to gain traction with both talent scouts and business clients alike.

This latest announcement from Gideon’s studio comes in response to several high-profile social influencers being heavily criticized for using live filters and photo-editing to significantly alter their physical appearance on digital platforms. In several instances, the editing was so severe that the subjects were completely unrecognizable from their real-life selves.
For actors, models and talent agencies, a good headshot is considered essential. Aspiring professionals want to look their best, but are well-advised to retain their authenticity. The competitive nature of the industry means that a potential hire only has a few seconds to make a favorable impression on a casting director.
“The human brain processes visual information data best,” explains Gideon. “In fact, we process visual imagery up to 60,000 times faster than information which is written down. So your headshot will make a much bigger impression than a well-written resume. This is true for both actors and business professionals looking to make a good impression on a prospective client.”
“We’re used to photoshopping our personal images, but in doing so we often lose the uniqueness that makes us stand out. Find a good professional photographer who knows how to put you at your ease and works with you to showcase your most authentic self. That’s the key to creating your best headshot; one that will stand out rather than a forgettable cookie-cutter face with a forced smile.”
