Vanie Poyey Photography

Vanie Poyey Photography The Los Angeles headshot photographer for actors who don't like to pose! Photography coach. I do what I do because I want to help you succeed.
(110)

I want to empower you with the tools you need to market yourself. My goal is not to give you the most beautiful LA headshots or business headshots you’ve ever taken, my goal is to give you headshots with life instead of vacant stares. Whether you’re an actor, a business person or looking for social media + dating headshots, my goal is to give you headshot photos that specifically showcase your ran

ge without pushing you against type. My goal is to figure out your stereotype, your essence and to capitalize on it. I do this by consulting with you, by directing you every step of the way and by producing specific marketing looks that will help get you in the door. I am the LA headshot photographer for people who refuse to pose. Click here for more info and ask me how I can help you!

Save this reminder!

We'll be discussing Gary’s marketing techniques, like how he gets work in his market.

We'll be discussing his pricing and how he establishes his prices.

We'll be discussing his open book model with his pricing, which is very different than mine. Gasp, I know! 😱

We'll be discussing his pricing model too, which is awesome!

And Gary will be volunteering a bunch of other practical, no-nonsense advice related to headshot photography.

So if you're in, we’ll see you at 1:00 PM PT today on Instagram LIVE!

If you tagged a headshot photographer before, please tag them again so they don’t miss this post.🙏🙏

I learned sooo much from talking to you and it’s going to help me immensely in putting together this program so that it actually serves you where you’re at.

😍So thank you!

If I didn’t get to talk to you and you generously volunteered your time, thank you!

I also learned that many of you are not batching your post work😱so from that knowledge came the idea to create my Free Lightroom Workflow Tutorial.

Feel free to download it ⏬(link in bio).

Keep a lookout for my announcement in January! 🤞Fingers crossed I make my own deadline.

Said Theodore Rosevelt.

In a world where we're constantly bombarded with carefully curated social media posts, it's easy to fall into the comparison trap. 💔
✋I’m guilty of doing it. Raise your hand below if you are.

BUT it’s not productive and certainly not conducive to moving the needle forward in your business cuz all it does is get you down.

Remember, your life is a unique work of art, and it can't be measured by someone else's yardstick. 💖
Your pace is your pace. Your path is your path. As long as you put your head down and do the work, you’ll get there.
So celebrate your wins, no matter how small, and cherish your own path, for it's filled with lessons, growth, and irreplaceable moments. ✨
So, let's stop comparing, start living and working authentically, and let progress happen at it’s own pace! 🙌

I’M OBSESSED with V-flats.🤩

V-flats are super important for definition especially if you’re using flat lighting like I am here with the window being the key-light.

Settings:
👉ISO: 400
👉1/160
👉f/2.8
👉70mm

My friend, (AKA The Representation Whisperer), is teaching the free, live masterclass, Make Agents Want You… and I don’t want you to miss out.

Comment below👇 with the word agents and I’ll send the link to snag your spot.

This class will help you realize the ways you’ve been holding yourself back – especially when it comes to seeking representation.⚡️

People are getting a ton of meetings & offers – even during the strike!

So if you want new reps, take the class.

Listen, I know there are a lot of *free masterclasses* out there but I promise you this one is different – yes, he’s going to invite you to sign up for the full program, but even if you don't decide to, this free class will make you think differently about yourself and your career. ❤️

And by the way, you don’t need referrals, a fancy reel, or fancy credits to get the attention of worthwhile reps… don’t believe the hype, YOU DON’T!

Comment below with the word agents and I’ll send the link to snag your spot.

Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Back in the day, a friend of mine mentioned he was looking for a new agent 🤨 by submitting clear envelops. Of course, the result that approach yielded was minimal. The calls he received were not from the most desirable agencies.

One of the top reasons I see agents asking for a re-shoot…

…is too much makeup in headshots.😱

In fact so much so that some reps will flat out say “Don’t wear makeup in your headshots!!”.

BUT I don’t agree, (because it tends to look washed out on camera and evening out skin tone makes a big✨ difference in making your headshot more competitive), I completely understand why an agent might say this.

Most actors think headshots are an opportunity to play dress up👗…

…and have a nice photo taken. BUT there’s sooo much more to a headshot than that.

Headshots are a marketing tool🛠️, a business card of sorts. They are *not* simply nice pictures of you.

Headshots are the most important tool your reps rely on to get you work. You need to think of headshots as an opportunity to do business.

HEADSHOTS ARE YOUR BUSINESS CARD.👈

They need to be able to give a potential employee your elevator pitch with your headshots. What is an elevator pitch?

“You’re too GREEN.”😰

That’s the dreaded judgement actors are constantly having to overcome!

🧐Did you know that among other things, your headshot can label you "green" too?

IF YOUR HEADSHOT DOESN’T LOOK PROFESSIONAL

the experience from the casting side is that if they call you in, you’ll likely be green, thus deterring them from calling you in at all.

👉🏻YET ANOTHER REASON to invest in your headshots– because it means you’re invested in your craft, which in turn means you’ll be taken more seriously.

If you ask a multitude of questions🙋‍♂️ that we already addressed in the material we emailed you, you are causing us to be what I call, “stupid busy”.

You are taking valuable time away from clients who we are either shooting, consulting with or doing post-production work for.

🌟PLEASE DON’T MISUNDERSTAND ME🌟

All clients are equally important, including you, so it’s important that when it’s time for YOUR marketing consultation and YOUR photo shoot, and YOUR post edits, someone else isn’t taking our attention away from you by asking questions that are already answered.

Did you listen carefully or take notes during our consultation? No? That’s okay, because I follow up our consultation with all kinds of goodies, including a Wardrobe PDF and several articles to read on how to prepare.

So please, please, please read them and don’t call to ask me what to bring… or worse, don’t show up saying, “I didn’t know what to bring.”😡

Like, wtf? We went over all that verbally, and I sent you some really helpful material just in case. You have no excuses for not doing the work.

I can't put it more eloquently than agent .

❝…there’s always a very good reason that someone took the time to write something out. Trust me, we don’t do it for fun. We don’t all have more time than you do. But we’ve learned, over years of doing our jobs, where people usually get tripped up.❞

💁🏼‍♀️There are all kinds of professionals from acting coaches and CDs, to reps and career coaches, providing free content where you can learn how to take small steps towards your big goals.

🌟THIS IS AWESOME BUT🌟

There’s also a lot of noise on social media.

IT CAN BE TRICKY TO FIND RELIABLE SOURCES to seek out information from.🤔

It’s easy to land on a page that’s popular or setup in a professional way, but where amateurs are dishing out advice to one another.

🖐️These are the groups you want to avoid– Unless you understand to take amateur advice with a grain of salt.

If you’re a novice, however, you don’t know what you don’t know.

When joining groups, make sure you are joining a group that is run by a professional in the industry where they provide input in that group, EVEN IF there is a lot of interaction between members.

SOMETIMES even people who are pros dish out wrong advice! There are no credentials needed on social media.🤷🏼‍♀️

GETTING BAD ADVICE CAN LEAD TO BAD DECISIONS.

➜Make sure the people you take advice from have credibility.

ALWAYS research their background! Do they have credits on IMDb? Do they have trusted sources following them and interacting with them?
