COVID-19 UPDATE (lockdown 2 – Nov 2020)
Just a quick note to say that I am currently taking bookings as normal, yay! Unlike the first lockdown my understanding is that now any work that cannot be done from home is both allowable and a valid reason for travel and I am confident that headshots (like film and TV production) would fit into that category. Provided you are able to get to my studio in Dalston (E8 2LY) safely – It is located next to two Overground Stations (Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland) which are generally quiet during the day. Or if you would prefer to drive there is parking available in Sainsburys about a one minute walk from the studio.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns at all!
HEADSHOTS FOR ACTORS
I SHOOT BOLD, MODERN HEADSHOTS WITH AN EMPHASIS ON CHARACTER AND CONNECTION. I VALUE ENERGY AND DRAMA.
I USE CINEMATIC LIGHT, DRAMATIC LOCATIONS AND A FILMIC GRADE FOR A HIGH VALUE TV/MOVIE PRODUCTION STILL LOOK.

PRICES & BOOKING
A note on Prices: From January 1st 2021 my prices will be increasing. A mini Session will be £125 (currently £100), a standard session will be £225 (currently £200) and a portfolio session will be £325 (currently £300). The price of retouched images will also increase to £25 each (currently £20). Any session booked before January 1st will be charged at my current rate even if the actual session takes place next year.
1 retouched shot included* (colour)
Studio or Outdoor
This is something new. I noticed that often a favourite shot comes from right at the start of the session and it occurred to me that I could offer a very short session that would be great value for the right client. While I would be reticent to recommend this if you are not particularly comfortable in front of the camera or if you are not sure what look you are going for, this can be a fantastic choice in any of these cases:
- You have just had a change of hairstyle and need an up to date shot for Spotlight.
- Have a portfolio you are generally happy with but are looking for a more dramatic shot to get people’s attention.
- You are just starting out and are on a budget. I firmly believe that you are better off with one great shot than any number of mediocre ones.
3 retouched shots included* (colour)
Studio or Outdoor
Suitable for actors at any stage of their career. Whether your focus is film and TV or theatre this will provide you with a strong and varied set of images to populate your Spotlight page.
This session can include a few full length looks or cinematic production still type shots as well as classic headshots. However if you are looking to build an entirely new portfolio in one session a Studio and Outdoor session may be more suitable.
3 hours (approx.)
8-10 setups, 4-5 studio, 4-5 outdoor
6 retouched shots included* (colour & B/W)
Studio and Outdoor
Whether you are just starting out or simply looking for a change, this is a perfect way to build a complete portfolio. A hugely varied selection that can include full-length shots, editorial portraits and cinematic production-still type looks as well as a variety of hotshots representing different casting types.
We’ll start in the studio in Dalston and make a plan with reference to my work, your clothing choices and any notes you have from your agent. For the second part of the session we’ll usually head outdoors for some cinematic portraits. I don’t strictly restrict the time on these, we just shoot and play until we have something we are both super happy with.
3 hours (approx.)
6-8 setups, 3-4 studio, 3-4 outdoor
3 retouched shot included each* (colour & B/W)
Studio and Outdoor
This is essentially the same as my Portfolio Session but with the time divided between two people. A considerable amount of the session time is taken with lighting adjustments, clothing changes, and moving between locations so by splitting a session between 2 people I can provide you with a more varied selection of images for less money.
Ideal for students (there is no further student discount, the price is already reduced) or friends/couples/siblings these shoots are usually really fun as well as being great value.
For the purpose of my booking system this will come up as a Portfolio session. Select 2 people and I will know what we are shooting.
*A link to view all the images via a private online gallery will be provided the same day. You are welcome to share this link with your agent/management or friends and family in order to help you pick your shots. I only allow public use of the completed retouched images. Additional retouched images can be purchased at a cost of £20 each or 3 for £50.
‡This discount is available not only for students but for any actor on a tight budget. I feel that it’s at least as financially tough being a working actor as it is a student so if you’d prefer to pay the concessions rate just let me know when booking and I won’t question it.
