My first headshot was adorable, but so terribly unprofessional (I used it for at least two years?!). My thought process was, I thought it looked “commercial”. It’s from a BBQ.
I would add my name to the bottom when I printed them glossy style at CVS.  😛




I am attaching a ‘headshot’ I ended up taking of myself for a last minute audition application I may or may not have found on craigslist.  It was the first time I had thought about acting again since moving home and shaving my head.  I had no other current photos, and for some reason I thought I would wear a grimy tank top and go out into the blaring sun, pockmarked and flushed.  And I think the worst part is that I actually thought it was a flattering photo at the time. Sigh…  Cest la vie.

I actually used this more than once. Imagine handing this to casting directors.. Taken on my Nikon camera..

Huge props to the performers for sharing these with us!  -And thanks so much for the backstories.

There are more to come.

And yes, you can still enter.  Just e-mail me the worst image that you’ve ever used as a headshot.  If you include a story (as above) please let me know if you are okay with me sharing it, along with how you want your name to appear.
