In a word, yes. Good, cheap headshots are hard to come by, but if you can find them, you will get a great deal. Where can you find them?
Well, for one, I offer great, discount headshots. Many actors have come to me exclaming that the headshots I've given them for less than $250 have been worth the same as a $700 headshot, and that makes me happy to hear. Some people tell me I ought to raise my prices, but I won't do that to my clients because why should actors have to spend tons more money for a picture of themselves? Plus, making contacts with lots of actors is more important to me than taking away your money. I'd rather get fifty $100 headshot clients than five $1000 headshot clients, it just makes more sense, especially given the fact that I am a filmmaker.
Besides me, look on craigslist. There are tons of good cheap headshot photographers there. Just make sure to ask them for samples before meeting with them, and ask to call them on the phone so you can see what kind of person they are. Remember that a lot of these headshot photographers are still trying to build their portfolio and are willing to shoot for only $50.
