Talent agencies demand character
Films and projects have characters, people who cast from Talent agencies are looking for characters.
There are many castings for projects and other kids modeling shoots for a diverse number of character types.
Therefore Talent agencies need a lot of good characters to be successful.
Diversity is key
Child actors and Models need a diverse portfolio. Consequently, cute headshots alone will not impress Talent agencies.
Talent agencies need to see Character. As a result, portfolios that are diverse and full of character will have an opportunity to be cast more.
Therefore, Talent agencies demand character, not just pretty faces.
More castings an actor or model gets, means more experience and connections.
Therefore, more experience and connections can lead to larger gigs.
That is why I say; “Talent agencies demand character”.
The “School” series of shoots show Nerds, Bullies, Love Interests, and they have lots of Character.
These are great Character shots for Talent agencies to cast from.
Attention is Essential
In the entertainment industry there is a “Need” to have something in your portfolio that is an attention grabber, other wise you just blend into the noise. HAving Charater shots tht fit roles being cast are great “Attention Grabber” for many Talent agencies.
Actors need something that makes them stand out, so they are remembered.
You want something that will “Entertain” or “Shock” casting people.
Drivers Photography helps actors achieve a showcase of cast-able characters to help them land casting calls and roles.

How do themed Headshots help an Actor or Model ?
Many People ask about:
How to get into the acting industry?
Or How to become an child actor?
If you really want to get acting jobs you have to show them “Character”.
Casting people are not casting for “actors”, rather they are trying to fill roles that are Characters in a script.
There can certainly be great results to offer themed headshots. For instance, when you are trying to show what Character you can bring to their production.
Some Actors or Models hide the very character that might be essential to helping them land many roles.
What are Casting people looking for?
