Being a professional headshot photographer in London gives me the opportunity to work with lots of awesome actors from all around the world, its always a pleasure to shoot with actors who are getting their first set of acting headshots and other actors who have had a lot of experience with getting their headshots done.
I believe its always really useful to get a sense of what shooting with a headshot photographer will be like before you choose to work with them, one way is to look at their website and portfolio and see any information that they give but to me, the best way is to look at client testimonials as this can give you a real insight to the headshots session and process.
Here are a few of my most recent testimonials from actors who have recently had their acting headshots taken by me!
"Really great experience. David makes you very comfortable and can adapt to get whatever type of picture you need. The Session pictures were sent to me within hours and retouches done much faster than expected. Would highly recommend him to anyone!” - Craig Talbot
"David is a very talented photographer. He is a consummate professional, a people person, and as someone who was doing their first headshots, he calms you and you can trust that this person is going to get the quality head shots that you are seeking. You will get the shots you desire and through the shoot, you will see his talent and get the art of getting the shot, without forcing the shot. His communication throughout, even as your photos are being retouched, are always clear. Every step of his process is handled with great attention, care, and once again: professionalism. I will be using his services again." - Erica James
"David was amazing to work with. Very professional and welcoming at the same time. We got things moving quickly with time to have a chat about our interests and get to know each other. Highly recommended. Highly regarded. Thanks David!” - Steve Ryans

"David is an extremely talented photographer, makes you feel super comfortable and happy to be there taking your headshots. The photos came out just the way I wanted and I LOVE the result. Definitely recommend him for actors in need of new headshots!” - Gabriela Toloi
"David Yiu is an extremely talented and highly professional photographer . David has a natural ability to relate directly to an actor's perspective which is phenomenal to observe during a headshot shoot . During a shoot David also has the ability to provide clear and precise direction and necessary adjustments to actor which thus allows them to capture those magic moments. In addition on top of his great skill and proficiency David is also a very likable fellow, both warm and friendly . His studio facilities are magnificent and all these elements combined make for an extremely productive and enjoyable headshot session. Hence I would have no hesitation in either recommending David's services or working with him again in the future. Thanks David!” - CJ Parmar
"I took my teenage son to David and we were both really happy with the experience. David was warm, welcoming and charming. My son loved chatting about comics and films with David and he was quickly relaxed and able to have a great photoshoot. We're now having difficult choosing just a few shots from the wealth of fantastic shots David took. Highly recommended!” - Liz Maltman

I'm a London Actor Headshot Photographer. Having studied film at university, I moved into a career in photography and which has taken me from film sets and live events to product launches for some of the biggest brands in the world. Now a dedicated Headshot Photographer, I believe each session should be fun and enjoyable, working closely alongside each client, helping to find the shots they deserve to take them to the next level.
