Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I'm currently getting ready to apply to be represented by an acting agency, but I don't have any great headshots. Like I have some decent ones, they look good, but also you can tell that they aren't professional. I know that professional headshots can be pretty expensive, but I've also heard that you can find some slightly more reasonably priced ones as well.

So first of all, do you have any photographers/companies you recommend for less expensive but still professional looking headshots? And second, do you have any recommendations for how I can keep an eye out for and find opportunities to have cheaper but professional headshots taken?

Thank you!

Zorro sin ahorro,

If you're at BYU, next week there's a LinkedIn photo booth on Monday where they're going to be talking free pictures for LinkedIn profiles, so I would imagine that you could sneak in there (Even though it's technically at the stem fair, who cares?). Here is the advertisement that I found for it:

Also, there was an office under the ASB that I got passport photos taken for pretty cheap, so you could try to find that office, and they probably would be willing to do it for you or point you in the right direction. Their office is C-40 ASB and here is their website. There, it says the following:

Passport and visa pictures can be taken at the Travel Office in C-40 ASB. There is no charge for BYU employees or BYU students and immediate family.

Other than that, you might be able to find someone in the photography department that could help you out. You can also try going to the Career Services office in the Wilk right next to the information desk. They can probably help you figure that sort of thing out and they sometimes have events where they'll do photos for LinkedIn like they did here, but it looks like it's during winter semester. Either way, they're probably a good resource to ask.

Best of luck!

I used to work for Career Services over the photobooth events, and can confirm that you are absolutely welcome to come to the STEM fair LinkedIn photobooth. It's marketed towards STEM students but all students are welcome. They usually have at least one of those every semester. It does take about two weeks for them to edit all the pictures and send them out though, so be aware of that. Good luck!
