Headshots & Portraits
I shoot headshots and portraits for actors, dancers and performers within Hampshire and the Greater West London area. I also photograph corporate headshots for businesses and offer daily rates to productions and casting agencies.
Your headshot is one of the most important factors in getting you into the right audition. Having worked in casting for over 13 years I understand the importance of a good headshot!
I can photograph you in a studio, at your home or on location. Where we shoot is entirely up to you, we can visit a local park and use the available natural light or I can create a more controlled studio setting in your home. In addition I can also recommend professional make-up artists and hair stylists should you want one present on the day to ensure that flawless look!
I have photographed headshots of over 7,000 actors and walk-ons!
Light retouching is included as standard should any stray hairs or blemishes need to be removed so you look your best. Your headshot should obviously be an accurate representation of you but additional retouching can be arranged should you feel the need for any freshening up, like brightening up the eyes or whitening teeth.
A headshot session typically takes 1-2 hours and can include changes of lighting set-ups, backdrops and unlimited costume changes. You should bring a selection of plain tops with you on the day so be sure to think about simple neckline styles that suit you without taking focus from your face. You should resist the urge to wear accessories for in terms of acting headshots, less is more. Your headshot should be simple, elegant, and representative of you.
