Since my last post last week on cheap headshots I’ve had lots of messages and comments backing up my thoughts. The crux of the matter is this – there’s so many amateur and part-time headshot photographers out there that it can be a minefield finding the right headshot photographer for you.
You may think that you’re saving money by using a photographer offering cheap headshots – but are you? I think not!
You may only get one chance to impress the Casting Director, a cheap headshot let’s rephrase that – exchange cheap for poor or substandard – isn’t going to do that!
You my well be a fantastic actor who is perfect for the role but – you’ll never get the chance to show them how good an actor you are if you never get to audition for them. A poor headshot gets you rejected at the first round!
To stand any kind of chance you need to be in the casting room showing the Casting Director ‘what you can do’. My advice (and I’m not one of the most expensive headshot photographers in town) is DON’T TAKE A CHANCE WITH YOUR CAREER BY USING CHEAP HEADSHOTS – it may be the biggest mistake you can make. This applies much more to the start of your acting career than when you are more established.
