In just 2 short weeks IADB will unveil our new service which will help actors find U.S.-based headshot photographers with ease.
The Headshot List
We've already invited some of our favorite photographers to participate and as of 2 days ago we've got a few signups. You can already preview their headshot photography portfolios here. We understand that previewing some photographer's portfolio and finding the right headshot photographer for you are two different things. That's why the Headshot List will offer in-depth searching tools to find the photographer for you.
We're launching the full site on December 3rd, 2016
This service will be FREE for photographers and FREE for actors, in short, it's completely a non-profit research tool designed for actors to find headshot photographers nearby and for photographers to showcase their work and reach new customers.
Monopolizing an industry is unfair, and many talented photographers don't get a chance to shine. We will open up doors to all photographers based in the U.S. so they can showcase their work free of charge and allow you, the actor, to find what you need at a price that you can afford.

Just think about it. Can you imagine casting directors having a list of only 2-3 actors they're willing to work with and constantly and exclusively picking them over others? There might be better choices out there, but if it ain't broke don't fix it, right? Wrong. You deserve access to the best photographers at the rates that work for them and you deserve to be able to quickly review their headshot work before making any appointment arrangements. Headshot List is the answer.
The only thing we ask in return is for you to tell your friends about this service, and tell headshot photographers you know as well, so that we can grow our database to bring you the most reliable headshot photography services in the United States.
What's next, you ask? Our neighbors up north would probably benefit from a similar database. First, let us perfect this system here in the USA. Canada and Australia will be next.
Based on the blog post above we'd like to recommend these two additional reads. If you'd like to write a guest post on our site, feel free to reach out to us at any time.
