Should I get professional head shots?

All entertainers should have professional calling cards. This is your number one promotional tool. In the case of Actor's this would be a head shot.

There are many photographers out there who take beautiful photos. One thing I recommend is that you have a look at their body of work, look for familiar faces, some head shot photographers have taken shots of celebrities and those photos are on their site, this will help you to see the representation of the person they shot.

Many photographers will meet you in person if you feel that is helpful before you hire them. There is probably not much worse than having someone take your pictures with whom you are uncomfortable, so this is a valid step in the process.

Don't let your buddy take some shots of you because they have a hobby and then think those will pull like a pro. The industry knows professional work when it sees it!

To be a Pro, you have to BE a Pro!
