Many newcomers try to scrape by on bad headshots...
A good headshot is rarely the product of a TFP shoot or a
"really good amateur with a nice camera."
PLEASE UNDERSTAND: It is REQUIRED that you have a professional photograph
to be a part of our agency if you are over the age of 5.
All photographers are NOT created equally. Headshot photographers
are not the same as fashion photographers or wedding photographers...
and they are certainly NOT found in malls.
If you are new, I will try to cut you some slack for a MONTH OR TWO
if you have "decent" photos, but if you are not getting into the auditions,
you really need to think long and hard about the money you think you are "saving"
by trying to pass off your photos as "headshots."
Your headshots are the ONLY thing that casting directors see on the first round.
Are they opening doors for you or are they holding you back?

In general, if a photographer doesn't even have a headshot gallery,
I would assume that he/she doesn't really specialize in headshots!
Head shots are an actor's most important tool!
Head Shots are REQUIRED
for talent over
the age of 5.
