Actors Headshot Tips and Advice


Tip 5 - Submission of BW or Colour Headshots?

At our London Headshot Photo Studios we always shoot in colour, converting the digital images to BW as per client requests. The question is do you submit colour or BW shots.

New York and LA based castings will need a headshot in colour. In the UK both colour and BW are used, and if possible you should ask what is preferred. It is worth noting that Spotlight now allows several photos to be posted, so a selection of colour and BW should be submitted

Colour or Black and White Headshots

  • In the US colour is now the norm
  • In the UK both BW and colour are accepted
  • Printed headshots are usually portrait format, sized 10x8 inches
  • Prints available in gloss/matt, border/no border - it's your choice

The standard size or printed headshots is 10x8inches (25x20cm) and is available in matt or gloss finishes, with or without a border. In the UK, 10x8 repros with borders are the more common choice.
