Blog: Argentum Photo Goes the Extra Mile To Help Hollywood Actors During Pilot Season

Argentum Photo has been a mainstay for actors in Hollywood for 23 years and every February, during the busiest time of the year - they choose to give back to actors the most.

Pilot season is generally known in the entertainment business as the busiest and most hectic time of the year. It's a time when thousands of actors make pilgrimages to Los Angeles to compete with many thousand more actors for a finite number of roles that will be cast by the television networks casting pilots for next years crop of new television shows.

So while most headshot printing labs jack up their rates to feed on actors wallets, Ajay Jhaveri of Argentum Photo in Hollywood takes a different approach. He offers his best deals of the year.

Every February Argentum Photo offers their actor clients the famous "2 for 1" Headshot Special to get them through the busy season, without taking a bite out of their budgets.

"We've been in the business of servicing actors and see a hundred pictures, five days a week for twenty-three years! You do the math! We're not in the nickel and dime business. The reason actors come to us is because they get the best quality headshots, which is the first thing that represents them in the marketplace. Quality comes first. " said Ajay Jhaveri

Mother Tracy Culliver has been bringing her two children (Max (11) and Genna(14)) to Los Angeles every pilot season from Dallas Texas for the last four years. She knows firsthand the financial investment it takes to get her children in-front of casting and producers for casting consideration. " We generally spend anywhere from seven to ten thousand a month to be here in the running. That's one of the reasons I stop by Argentum every February like clockwork." said Culliver.

In an industry town with no shortage of litho/repro houses, Argentum continually wins Backstage Reader's pick as the Best.  The simple reason is because they recognize the importance of relationship building with their clients.  In most other cities in America it would be considered good business, but in Hollywood where most counter employees seem to be meeting for the first time even though you've been catering their business for years, the give back and customer courtesy goes the extra mile.

Argentum's February Headshot Special is valid only on orders in the quantity of 50 and above. Orders in the quantity of 5, 10, or 25 do not qualify. Offer ends February 28th, 2013.
