    I’m starting to audition for a few things here and there (way, WAAAAY over there) and have found that a lot of theater groups request a head shot so they can remember who the heck I am. While I’ve had a picture taken for a show last year, it’s a little out of date thanks to a haircut AND I don’t have $75 to get the rights to it. Anyone have any good advice or offers?

    I’ve got a SLR and Flickr. Flickr/Snapfish charges $0.79 for a 5″ by 7″ and $2.99 for a 8″ by 10″. If we can shoot a picture you like, I can get you head shots for 0.79 cents to $3. I’d recommend doing something like this:

    About the only difficulty is setting up the booth and lighting for the shot once you’ve got someone with a D-SLR & a tripod. Pick up some fabric or whatever, get yourself all done up, setup a few clamp lights with low wattage bulbs, and take the pictures.

    Nothing magical or anything; might have to do some color correction in Photoshop and you are all set.

    I’m liking the options! Auditions aren’t for another month so I have time. Just getting ducks in a row.

    Sadly, last I checked, JC didn’t actually include photography in their 2,000.00 package or however much it costs.

    I’m also too short for ANY modeling agency to look at me, even as a petite model.

    John Casablancas isn’t a modeling agency, trust me on that one ;)

    If you do want to get representation for commercial work/acting though, I can refer you to the right people who do it the right way.

    Actually that’s 3,000 Core but since you have such a promising face they can get you a scholarship and knock 1,000 of the cost. Lol
