The eternal photo!

Ok, so you are out there auditioning all over town. You find yourself in waiting rooms with other models and actors at auditions. So, picture the scene.
There is someone that can acutally decide if you are the right person for the job.
You suddenly decide to stand up on your personal soap box and start chatting with others about your views. Let's just say that this is a small world. You might decide to talk about casting directors, agents, managers, photgraphers, or politics.
Whatever it is, you now have everyone's attention.
And...you have a photo posted up on LA casting, Actors Access, Breakdowns, etc.
What you do not know is that you have no idea who knows who, and what is going to get back around that you spoke about. Now for your photo. If you happen to spew your political agenda all over a public casting office, you might just well be offending someone at that office, and guess what? They can permanently mark your photo for future reference, whether it be positive or negative. I have personally had people call my office and complain about models that were talking way too much, and emailed their political views to people in casting. Of course you have a right to your opinion, but keep your persnal agenda in check when trying to get booked.
