I wish I'd known more about teen headshots in NYC before I moved to NYC myself as a struggling actor! I had no idea how to find my first headshot photographer, and I was barely out of my teens myself!
When I was hunting for a headshot photographer for myself, the internet wasn't the huge resource that it is right now (I realize this dates me a wee bit!). How was I supposed to find the best headshot photographer in a sea of talented shooters?
The first thing I did was turn to any online or print listing that I could find for headshot photographers. I looked through every listing and followed up by checking out that photographer's website and online presence.
I also asked my friends, fellow actor/waiters at the restaurant that I worked at, and every actor that I knew if they would refer whoever took their headshots. This also really helped me narrow down the best person for me.
It's so much easier now - you have the internet at your disposal!
