I have recently joined a casting agency to become a supporting artiste & I have been lucky enough to have some work already. The issue I have is that casting selections are made based on the photographs that are uploaded to the casting agency websites. Whilst these are not expected to be professional photographs, they do need to be good quality and in colour. Mine have all been taken on a mobile phone by friends and family and are not particularly good, and with so much competition I need them to stand out a bit more. Unfortunately I do not have the finances to go to a professional photographer so I was wondering if it would be appropriate to try and find an amateur photographer that might be able to help. The shots I need are very basic and need to be against a fairly plain background, 1 x head shot, 1 x full length in casual dress, 1 x full length in smart dress and any other shots I might like to submit. I did not like to put a link on here but you can google any casting agency to get an idea of the type of photographs I need. I would be really grateful for any suggestions, opinions and advice from fellow nappy valley peeps. Many thank yous in advance!
