Headshots are worlds away from your average school pictures or your typical selfie. How often do you take those duck-faced photos into job interviews? Never. But as an actor or performer, your headshot is your money maker. It's as important, if not more so, than your resume. Anyone can read lines theatrically, plenty of people have been trained in acting, but do you have the look they want? And if you're the best actor, will they remember which pretty face was yours?

Because headshots are such an important element in your acting career, they're worth preparing for, and in this case, worth blogging about. So in lieu of a written blog this week, we thought we'd let the photography and acting experts at Backstage talk about headshots and give you some how-to tips. Enjoy!
