You need to promote yourself, but you can't spend money on the most basic promotion, your headshots. So what do you do? Here are a few tips:
Figure out your budget for headshots. The more you can spend, the better they will be. Just kidding! The truth is that you can spend a lot less money if you get along well with the photographer.
The more fun you have with the photographer, the better your headshots will come out, as long as the photographer has a decent camera and knows how to frame a picture correctly and photoshop it. But those are the technical things and any photographer should know them.
The best headshots are the ones where you look confident, content, and you look like you are the character you are playing. Knowing these things will let you get an amazing headshot.
To save money, find a photographer who charges less and you get along with well. Bring your favorite clothes, and just have a good time. That's all I can say. If there is anything making you not have a good time, your headshots won't look good. That's really all there is to it.
