Get a Good Picture

Posted on Wed, Jul 6, 2011 at 11:58 AM

If you want to be a professional performer, whether it's music, comedy, politics, whatever, the first thing you need to do is get a god damn hi resolution photo of yourself. I make half the posters in this town and more than half of my time is spent scouring the internet for a picture of you that doesn't suck. FYI, photos from Facebook show up on a 300dpi (standard) sized print at about the size of a postage stamp. When you blow those tiny little photos up big enough to use on a poster, they look like crap, that leaves me with a lot of turd polishing to do as I try to change your crap into something presentable.

Stop what you're doing, find a real photographer with a real camera, not your buddy with an iphone, and get a real photo taken at a real world resolution (not for web) and send it to the booker as you're sealing the deal. It'll cost you less than 50 bucks... You'll look better, my life will be better, everything will be better if you do this. GO... NOW... DO IT! —Poster Rage
