We're told that shooting with Merv Evans is a much different experience than most headshot sessions. The shoot is private, personal, deliberate, not rushed, with attention to detail. Every actor is unique, with their own talents and approach, so each session is a unique collaboration. Merv's goals are to make you comfortable, so you feel free to express yourself and not hold back, and to capture the personalities you project in a professional photograph that stands out among the crowd. Pictures that will get you called in and working.

Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Malibu are outstanding locations to shoot very exciting photos. Merv enjoys working with everyone from the newcomer to the established personality, and takes pride in helping people to get representation and opportunities to work. Our clients consistently comment on our on-location shooting style, friendly support staff, and what a good time they had during their session. That positive energy shows in your final images. We take a lot of pictures, so he can catch you smiling, laughing, looking away, connecting with the camera. He gets to come in close, vary the compositions, change settings and backgrounds, shoot horizontals, pull back, shoot from above, put you off center. You can just hang out and relax, perform a monologue, or recite lines to be in character. Bring a mix of clothes so you have some wardrobe options, and your favorite music if you like. The plan is to have fun and capture a variety of spontaneous moments. We're happy to talk about your unique needs and objectives. When you schedule a session, we'll follow up with notes and a checklist to help you get ready for your session, from outward appearance to your internal preparation.

What is a Good Head shot?

COMMERCIAL HEAD SHOTS typically consist of a flattering image of the head or head & upper torso (called a 3/4 Shot) clearly displaying eyes, nose, mouth, ears and hair in simple, direct lighting. This is the image that shows what “you” look like and is often, but not always, the more casual appearing headshot of the three. A successful COMMERCIAL head shot will not only show you relaxed and at your best, but will more importantly capture and convey your energy, your personality.

This head shot is the heart of your photo portfolio and is typically the type of photo that film and television casting directors, producers and agents want to see accompany your resume.
