Working Together

The goal of every session is, first and foremost, to provide you with an AWESOME Headshot Portfolio which will show your range as an actor and importantly, get you work.

How I work

It doesn’t matter if you are a complete newcomer to acting or have been doing it for years, your headshot is important.

It can be daunting, thinking of having your headshot taken, but we will work together to provide you with a selection of headshots that not only show who you are, but who you are at your absolute best!

All of my sessions are friendly and relaxed, when you arrive, we will be able to sit down in a comfortable environment with a cup of tea or coffee and discuss the shoot ahead and the type of headshots that you are looking to achieve.

I shoot with multiple backdrops and also shoot outside as well as in the studio, the final images that you choose will be delivered to you professionally edited and in high resolution. We regularly review the images as we go so that you can give feedback on what you like, so as the session goes on we can adapt as needed.

Your session will never be rushed and I tailor every session towards you as an individual, this means we will get the best headshots that are right for you and that will help you stand out from the crowd.

My sessions start at £175, with student discounts available.

A typical session

It can be a bit daunting to think of coming to a studio for a shoot, so let me show you the flow of a typical headshot session (based on a morning Deluxe Package Session) with myself.


First things first, when you arrive we'll have a chat (of course with tea or coffee) to get to know each other a little bit and so I can find out what you want to achieve from the session. We will also talk about what type of roles you want to go get in the future.


We can then go through the clothing options that you have brought with you and I'll make some suggestions for the shoot. When you are ready for the first look, I'll make sure the lighting is set up perfectly for you and take a couple of test shots to begin with and also chat a little bit about posing. When everything is set, we'll start shooting.


When we have finished shooting with the first look and you are happy with the results, you will be able to change into the second look (change of clothes / hairstyle change / shave for guys). I'll make sure the lighting is all set and we will begin shooting again. If you require any outdoor images as well, we will be able to head outside and get some beautiful natural light shots. Depending on the look (and the weather), we might spend more time outside or in studio, but this is flexible so we can always adapt as the session continues.


We will then review the images so far as well as having another tea or coffee if needed! When you are ready its time for another clothing change and look. The session will be in full swing by now and so we will keep shooting and changing looks for as long as time allows


After we have finished shooting, we will sit down and have the final review of the images.

Within 24 Hours

The best images from the shoot are put online in a password protected gallery (I'll keep all the images on a server for 1 year). You are then able to review and choose your favourite 3 images at your leisure. A link to the gallery can also be sent to your agent or anyone else if you wish.

Within 1 week of choosing your images

Your images will be professionally edited and then you'll be emailed a link to download the final high resolution images.
