Is it better not to have a photo at all? Do you have a photo or a graphical image that represents you as a voice actor?
Let's have a debate and discuss the pros and cons of including a headshot on your Voices.com profile.
A commonly held belief is that photographs can actually become a hindrance to voice actors because their physiques (outward appearance) and vocal talents are completely separate from one another.
For example, a talent may have a large, booming, and muscular voice perfect for voice-overs related to sports, but they may not have the physical appearance to match.
Is it better to remain visually anonymous, or should there be at least something visual, whether it be a head shot or a logo created specifically to reflect the vocal talents of a professional voice actor?
If you're one just to jump right into it, we've crafted a list of online tools that you can use to create your own avatar. You can use the avatar instead of a professional headshot.
