Dont stop applying to agencies or castings. Apply feedback where you see fit. Dont make major changes to your look that require new Digitals, if you do, update them. Apply to open castings (after vetting the submission site/page); you don't have to be represented by an agency to get yourself on sets to gain experience or to get jobs.
These short and to the point mini-sessions are perfect for agency and casting submissions. Natural light, no editing, so you can be sure that you'll get high-quality images that will help you book jobs.
If you are looking to get signed by an agency or easily casted for jobs, yes. Even if you have a portfolio, Digitals are the reason companies feel confident booking you.
The industry is aware of the magic a production team can curate. A strong portfolio shows them all what you are capable of but Digitals show them who’s walking through the door - what to expect without a glam squad, stylist, studio lighting, and editing.
