Compare your headshot

to headshots of friends that are auditioning and working.  Ask these friends to let you peek at their profiles on LA Casting or Actors Access.  You may notice differences between their headshots and yours.

FOR EXAMPLE,  you may notice the quality of their headshots are better, or perhaps they have clearly defined marketing looks casting directors can identify.

Ask yourself how much you’ve invested in your headshots.

Is your investment an investment in your career, or did you save a few bucks and let your friend take your headshots?  Have you properly thought through what your age range is along with your target market?

DO YOU HAVE CHARACTER-SPECIFIC LOOKS, or are your headshots not specific?

Have you taken a “type me” class at places like Sam Christensen Studios, or worked with a career coach like Jona Xiao at Career ACTivate?

To be competitive, make sure you don’t cut corners with your headshots.   Pay a professional for quality that will stand out in a crowded market place and create a range of marketing looks that EASILY SPELL OUT your target market to casting directors.
