If you are serious about your acting career, you need to land a talent agent to represent you. You also need to submit your photos and resumes to casting directors who audition actors. You need to study acting with the best coaches. You need the proper paperwork and permits to be able to work in the many locations that filming takes place these days. You need the best headshots that you can afford, because your headshots are your calling-card to the industry. I highly recommend getting the 2014 Actors Resource Guide eBooks which have comprehensive listings of the top talent agents, casting directors, acting teachers and schools, headshot photographers and photo duplication services, work permits and visa information and applications, and much more important lists and information. The eBooks are available for many locations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
