It's a variation on the classic actor's nightmare: You step into a room for an audition. The casting director is perusing your headshot. You exchange polite hellos, and a quizzical expression passes over her face. Her eyes move up and down between you and the frozen image in her hand. Her mouth tightens. You know it's coming. You try to predict which line she will speak:"So, are you here to read for the niece or the aunt?""When did you last have your headshots done?""Excuse me, do I even have the right person here?"All because the person in the photo is younger, thinner, sexier, better looking, and/or more glamorous than you. You can rationalize: "Geez, everybody exaggerates. Casting directors expect that. Anyway, she should be more interested in my acting chops than my headshot."Just be glad the authority figure in your fantasy isn't Jeff Mitchell »

As part of its new monthly series Back Stage at the SAG Foundation, Back Stage presented the panel "Picture This: Your Headshot From Every Angle" May 12 to a packed crowd at the SAG Foundation in Los Angeles. Speakers included casting directors Marci Liroff, Geralyn Flood, and Stuart Stone and photographers Kevyn Major Howard, Alan Weissman, Sara Corwin, and Jeff E Photo. The event was moderated by Back Stage research and casting editor Jessica Gardner. From the outset, this discussion proved to be lively, with Stone calling out photographers who charge actors more than $375 for headshots. Three out of the four photographers on the panel charge more than that, so it sparked an instant debate that lasted throughout the two-hour event.The panel had tension, drama, plenty of arguing, and strong opinions, but, most important, it was honest. Audience members who volunteered to have their headshots critiqued received candid evaluations from the CDs and photographers. »
