How long should a actor headshot session last?
Be sure to ask your photographer how long your session will take. Typically, a shoot will last 1-3 hours. Anything shorter than this will feel rushed and anything longer will cause burnout. We always aim to keep our sessions around 1-3 hours so that everyone can stay at an optimum energy level.
The arc to getting your picture taken is short - don’t over shoot
Keep your session 1-3 hours
Pace should be a jog - not a sprint, not a marathon
Aim for 3-5 amazing shots per look
