So I was joined by seven acting students for what was for most of them their first headshots. It was so much fun. We shot for about five hours and got in at least a couple of looks for everyone. It was a convivial atmosphere because they all know each other. And I got them out in time for the Super Bowl, if they were so inclined to see it.
