Supporting LA Actors
SAG-AFTRA Members Headshots Event
In response to the ongoing strike that has brought about unemployment and economic challenges within our creative community and the greater Los Angeles area, we are pleased to announce the SAG-AFTRA Support and Headshots Event.
Why We're Hosting This Event
The entertainment industry has faced unprecedented challenges recently, leading to financial hardships for many talented individuals. Our commitment to supporting our fellow artists and the local economy has led us to organize this event.
Free Headshots for SAG-AFTRA Members
As a token of appreciation for your continued support and dedication to the industry, SAG-AFTRA members will receive complimentary headshots. High-quality headshots are essential tools in our field, and we want to ensure that you have the resources you need to thrive in your careers.
Extending the Opportunity to SAG Eligible and Non-Eligible Actors
We understand that many aspiring actors, including those who are SAG-Eligible and Non-Eligible, are also facing challenging times. Therefore, we are considering extending this opportunity to you as well, depending on availability.
A 5-day event dedicated to helping our Los Angeles Actors update their professional portfolio. We have partnered with skilled photographers, ensuring that you receive quality commercial headshots.
Our ambitious plan is to provide up to 500 headshot sessions for SAG-AFTRA members and supporting actors during this event. We have expanded our capacity to accommodate a larger number of participants, so more members of our creative community can benefit from this opportunity.
We'll also have representatives on-site to answer any questions you may have about SAG-AFTRA, eligibility, and the ongoing strike. We aim to provide a supportive and informative environment for all attendees.

Let's come together as a community to support one another during these challenging times. Your talents are the heart of our industry, and together, we can overcome these obstacles and emerge stronger than ever.
The Impact of Unfair Practices
It's important to note that our community has been facing significant challenges due to the unfair practices of certain organizations. The AMPTP's actions have caused members of our community, including those from the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and SAG-AFTRA, to strike. These strikes have led to financial hardships and economic turmoil across our industry, affecting not only the professionals but also the entire ecosystem that relies on entertainment.
Our aim is ambitious, yet entirely attainable with your support. We want to provide 500 SAG-AFTRA members and Supporting Casts in the Los Angeles area with top-notch headshots, eliminating the financial barrier that often stands in their way. These headshots will not only help actors get noticed by casting directors but also boost their confidence and self-esteem, crucial in this highly competitive industry.
An event of such significance comes with substantial expenses. While every donation is valuable, our generous supporters will benefit from a rewards system.
