How to get Headshots on a Budget
I'd say if you are an actor just starting out and you have limited financial resources, definitely find a photographer who is just starting out too. Most are more than willing to work with you to build their portfolio. Even if they don't want headshots or commercial photos, we can ask them what type of photos they would like. Maybe that want editorial pictures, family, or couple photos, but be careful of those who want boudoir photos because you really have to trust that person and also have someone sit in the session with you. Anyway, BARTERING is the name of the game for actors on a budget...because eventually you'll be able to afford to pay for better photos.
