From Freight to Fame: Celebrities Who Were Once Truckers

Automotive,Entertainment Not all famous people begin their lives in the starlight. Many start their careers doing something completely different to what they end up becoming famous for. Here is a list of some of the most famous celebs who used to do haulage work before Hollywood came knocking. Sean Connery Everyone’s favourite Bond, this iconic Scottish actor was never afraid of a bit of hard work. As well as working as a labourer, coffin pusher and lifeguard, Connery spent a period as a truck driver before hitting the big time. After making his break in films such as South Pacific, the future Bond would go on to become one of the most recognised figures in cinema. After all, where do you think Bond learnt to drive his Aston Martin so well? Liam Neeson This Northern Irish actor would become famous for his roles as Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, as tragic hero Oskar Schindler and perhaps most famously as the world’s most protective and murderously skilled father Bryan Mills in Taken.

Before all that, however, Neeson did some work as a fork-lift truck driver and haulier for the famous Guinness brewery. Richard Pryor I’m sure that many of us know a truck driver who thinks that they are the funniest person on the planet. In the case of Richard Pryor, this turned out to be true. After doing haulage work across Europe and the US, Pryor decided to become a stand-up comedian and tell his jokes to a bigger crowd than just those he met on the road. Elvis Presley “Stick to truck driving, you’ll never make it as a singer.” These are the words famously uttered to the king of rock at one of his earlier auditions. Presley would go on to become possibly the most famous musician of all time and would base a number of his songs on the things that he had seen while travelling around the country in his lorry. It seems that there is nothing like a bit of haulage work to build the appetite for rockin’ and rollin’. Viggo Mortenson Before he was slicing through orcs as the heir of Gondor in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Mortenson was driving trucks in Denmark and working as a florist. Mortenson is now considered one of the most underrated actors of the nineties, as he did not receive critical recognition for his work until his Oscar nomination for his role in Captain Fantastic in 2016.

Should An Actor’s Headshots Be Black And White Or Colour?

Business More and more these days, doubt seems to prevail as to whether an actor should have colour or black and white photographs taken. What’s best these days for casting purposes, and what might the ‘state of play’ be in another five or 10 years’ time? Black And White: The Long-Time Norm For many years, there would have been little discussion about the respective merits of Actors Headshots In Black & White or colour – it was the former that was the norm here in the UK, while it was colour that was favoured in the US. There were obvious reasons for this. We were living in the pre-digital age as far as actor’s photography was concerned, and even the book published by casting portal Spotlight included only black and white actor headshots. Times have changed greatly since then. Almost all headshot photographers now shoot in digital, meaning they are able to choose between delivering their headshots in colour or black and white.

It is now customary for headshots to be displayed online, and while the Spotlight book is still black and white, both colour and black and white are accepted on the Spotlight website. So, What’s The Most Relevant Solution Today? I would recommend that you assemble a portfolio consisting of both colour and black and white headshots. Bear in mind that if your chosen headshot photographer only shoots film, they will only be able to produce one or the other. That’s why you may choose a single headshots photographer who can present you with a combination of black and white and colour images. This is likely to be someone who uses a digital camera to capture images in colour that are then converted to black and white on the computer in post-production.

For example, when you choose me, Steve Lawton, as your headshots photographer, you won’t have to choose between the two. Whatever package of mine you choose, you will receive all of your images in both black and white and colour. As an optional extra, I can even have hard copy A4 black and white contact sheets produced for all of your shots on 270gsm Lustre paper – which agents love! As For The Future When I consider the years immediately ahead, I find it hard to envisage any scenario other than everyone working in full colour. Black may already seem old-fashioned to some, which is a shame – after all, it’s usually much more flattering than colour. In the meantime, I and other photographers like me will continue to produce actors’ headshots in black & white as well as colour. Both ‘options’ undoubtedly have their strengths and uses, so why not look for a photographer who can draw upon both in producing the most beautiful headshots for you? We’ll explore the many ways we can create appropriate and impactful Actors Headshots together, in both colour and black and white.
