Understand this, a vampire is a hunter.
It a creature that uses beauty or innocence to lure its victims in, then it turns into a beast which will tear off its victims head. Show it no mercy.

Horror Headshots for actors and models.
Themed Horror Headshots for actors and models are created to cater specifically to increase an actors portfolio to include the horror genre.
Horror is a huge!
A portfolio Needs diversity. Therefore as part of that one needs to have headshots that includes many themes and looks.
Horror, like it or not is part of that diversity.
Horror shots in your portfolio will let casting people know that your actor is comfortable on a horror set.
Consequently, those shots will also let casting people know that you are actively looking for horror gigs. I have found many kids are actually EAGER to play in horror roles.
Horror adds diversity to a portfolio.
Horror has a huge following, there are many social media groups specifically catering to horror fans.
Adding horror characters to your portfolio and fan sites will increase and actors or models fan base.
There is a need to “Shock” your fans.
Fans and casting people will tend to “typecast” and actor. So something to shock them will stir the pot and get them talking about you. In the entertainment industry there is a “Need” to have something in your portfolio that is “Shocking”. As an actor you really do not want to just blend in on casting calls.
The Vampire Theme is based off the standard Vampire.
“Interview With a Vampire” is most of the inspiration for this theme. I also like to add a touch of “The Mummy” with the crypts and earth look.
