3 Headshot Mistakes Actors Make That Have Nothing To Do With the Photo

We all know that an actor’s headshot is very important and that it’s your first impression to anyone in the industry. Because of that, we want our headshots to be as professional as possible and we don’t want any mistakes that make us look like amateurs.

Today, I want to share with you three easily fixable headshot mistakes. In fact, none of them require you to get new headshots taken because they have nothing to do with the actual photo.

Mistake Number 1: Not Naming the File on Your Computer

Digital headshots are used much more often than printed headshots these days. So it’s important that we pay attention to detail when it comes to our digital headshot,...

Los Angeles, New York, or Atlanta? A Conversation with Drama Inc

I’m really excited about today’s video because I recently interviewed four of my acting teachers here in Atlanta. The four founding partners of Drama Inc, Jason MacDonald, Catherine Dyer, Scott Poythress, and Claire Bronson.

Combined they have over 100 years of industry experience and over 220 IMDb credits. I’ve taken classes with all four of them, I’ve learned a lot from all four of them, and I think you’re going to get a lot out of our conversation because they’ve lived and worked in Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta. So they can really speak to the differences in all three markets.

During the interview we talk about how they got to where they are,...

Acting Tips from Oscar Winners: What I Learned Acting with Two Oscar Winning Actors

On May 11th, 2016, I arrived on the set of my very first TV show booking. I just found out the night before that I would be working with not one, but two Oscar winners in the same scene. It was going to be a crazy day. I want to share with you the three things I learned from that experience.

Working with Helen Hunt and Richard Dreyfuss

Let me set the stage for you. One day in the future, I'm going to make a separate post explaining how I actually booked this job because that is a crazy story in itself. But today, we're just going to talk about what happened on set on the day of my shoot.

The name of the show was shots fired, a dramatic mini series that aired on the Fox network in the...

Should You Move to Atlanta for Your Acting Career?


Are you considering moving to a new city to pursue acting? If so, should you move to Atlanta?

Let’s talk about that.

Back in 2015, when I was still living in Ohio, I had no idea the film industry even existed in Atlanta. If you’re the same way, then let me help you out and give you a brief history lesson.

In 2008, Georgia passed a tax credit that gave productions a huge financial incentive to bring their projects to the state. With dollar signs in their eyes, Hollywood producers started bringing big budget productions to Georgia, the vast majority of them to the Atlanta area.

So now fast forward to 2020. What has happened in Georgia in the past decade? Well,...

What's up my fellow actor! Welcome to The Acting Career Center. 

If you used to follow my old YouTube channel "Small Market Actor", first of all, thank you. Second of all, I apologize for not making any videos in a while. But one of the reasons I’ve been on a hiatus is that my acting career has been super busy since I moved to Atlanta.

It also became pretty obvious that the name "Small Market Actor" no longer made sense because I don't live in a small market anymore. I moved from Cleveland, Ohio to Atlanta, Georgia in 2016 and Atlanta happens to be one of the biggest movie and television production cities in the world. 

So now we have a new name! What used to be...
