Out: Food Truck. In: L.A.'s 'Headshot Truck'

It’s a food truck-no, it’s a plumbing truck-no, it’s–a headshot truck?

Welcome to Los Angeles, where a young couple decided to make headshots more accessible by using a truck to bring their headshot business around town. The truck is painted in a bright magenta, with “The Headshot truck” written boldly in white on its side with an orange logo depicting a camera inside a truck. 

“The Best Way to Get Shot in L.A.” is painted on the back of the truck.  

Two plastic hot-pink flamingos, “Fred” and “Bobbles,” await prospective customers. 

Recent years have taken a toll on the headshot business, as cellphones and digital cameras have made picture-taking easy, reports the Los Angeles Times. In April 2013, CSI Corporation, which had thousands of locations at Sears and Wal-Mart outlets, closed. There are still high-priced private studios, but they can charge up to $800 for a session, while “The Headshot Truck” charges $250.

Adam Hendershott and his wife, Sylvia, are the owners of the truck. They found an 18-year-old Chevy Step Van former bread truck on Craigslist, renovated it by removing the 400-pound metal bread racks and cleaned up the crumbs that had been left.

The truck now features a bolted-in chair sits next to a table with makeup and hair products, an area to change clothes, a “studio” space for picture-taking and a desktop computer screen for reviewing the pictures, the Times reports.
