I already have a few entries into the (2nd) Worst headshot contest!

So, I had just moved out to the big city and already had my first audition lined up. The only problem was that I did not have a headshot and was at the time much too poor to afford a good one! An acquaintance of mine is a photographer and had taken headshots for some my friends. He offered to take mine for free, but he was only available for 30 minutes on one evening at his apartment.
No story really. Just a very terrible and awkward picture
I got this done at a mall. There was a makeup counter there offering free make-up makeovers and you could have a mini photoshoot. I think this was my senior year in high school.
Again, the point of this is that these stories are universal. We’ve all done it. Fuck… I’m embarrassed to say that I once shot a photo the day before an audition, because I realized that the photo that I had didn’t reflect me anymore. So I set up my camera and spent an hour taking self portraits.
How to avoid this? Get pictures taken before you need them. Honest.
