Recommended Photographer for Actor Headshots and Modeling Portfolios

Georgia: - (800) 910-1833 ext.2

Aspiring models, actresses and actors DO NOT confuse selfies with professional portfolio images. Selfies are generally taken by a camera phone, which is low in resolution and low in megapixels. Most camera phones produce pixelated, poor quality images that really don’t cut it for a professional modeling portfolio. Beyond the quality of the image, seeing an out-stretched arm in an image appears unprofessional. You may notice that selfies are not a part of supermodels’ portfolios. That’s because selfies are primarily meant for friends, family, and fans to see. Your portfolio is for prospective clients and other industry professionals to see.


Grow your portfolio with a variety of professionally taken pictures with that display different looks and poses.Your portfolio should showcase your very best work and will usually be judged by the weakest image. You don’t want a prospective client or agent to decline you, because you have a low quality, pixelated selfie.


There are many reasons why selfies have become a cultural phenomenon. Selfies are an honest form of photography that is personal, candid, and which we love sharing with our friends and family. As a model/actor, there are ways to work selfies into your personal lives, but make sure to separate the images that are seen by your personal and professional networks. Doing this will speak volumes about you as a professional.

We highly recommend that if you do NOT have professional photos to market yourself with please visit our photography services page ( where you can see packages and services that we offer and then call us at (800) 910-1833 ext.2 and BOOK YOUR SHOOT TODAY.

You deserve to take a REAL shot at your dreams. It's on you...



If HOT SHOTS TALENT coordinators like a model's look, they'll contact the model in under 48 hours. If a model is not contacted in 48 hours it means that the model's look is not suitable for HOT SHOTS TALENT at this time. This means HOT SHOTS TALENT may have several models represented that already have a similar look or that, based on experience, HOT SHOTS TALENT does not see a need for a particular look.

All materials will be reviewed within 48 hours of submission.

Due to the large number of submissions we receive, you will only be contacted if we are interested in representing you.
