Actor Beware, Take 2

Watch out for a potential agent or manager who demands that you go to a certain photographer to have headshots taken before s/he will represent you. Certainly it makes sense that an agent will have a suggestion or two of good photographers who have done well for their clients in the past. The giveaway is if your signing with that manager or agent hinges on whether or not you use his/her suggested photographer. Do not give into the pressure if you have another photographer in mind or even if you want to do some of your own research. Your agent shouldn't care as long as you look your best in your photos!
