Far too often, actors (when in a rush to get things going) will hastily jump into action, proclaiming, “I need (new) pictures!” They then ask around for a ‘good photographer,’ compare some looks and prices and schedule a photo-shoot. The date arrives and they head into the shoot with some sort of vague idea of what they want (or should have). Or, they have no idea at all, expecting the photographer to make it all happen for them.
It’s great to be proactive about your career, however, being unprepared for photo-shoots are one of the biggest mistakes that actors can make, again and again, and again. They go into their shoot hastily and wind up with anything but the best shots possible. NOT SMART! It’s foolish, time-consuming, and expensive. THIS IS THE PICTURE THAT DETERMINES WHETHER YOU WILL OR YOU WON’T GET TO PERSONALLY MEET CASTING DIRECTORS, AGENTS, AND MANAGERS!
A good headshot should last years! A bad headshot can also last years! After all, who wants to admit that the shots they just wound up with really aren’t that good?
DON’T MISS A SINGLE OPPORTUNITY! YOUR HEADSHOT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PRECISION TRADE TOOLS YOU HAVE AS AN ACTOR. GO INTO YOUR PHOTO-SHOOT PREPARED AND READY TO GET THE BEST SHOT POSSIBLE!
