Actor Headshots

Actor headshots with a modern cinematic twist

 

Approach

In photographing actors, my aim is to combine bold and engaging headshots with the cinematography of the screen. The results are headshots that are dynamic and characterful, which give a powerful impression in any actors portfolio.

My sessions are all studio based, and my aim is always to create images that are unique to each individual. No two sessions are alike, and I look to tailor each image to a particular direction and mood that you want to capture.

By using lighting and posing cinematically, my hope is that my photographs look almost like a still from a movie set, or a moment on the stage.

I work to coach my clients through the whole process, from posing to expression, to capture images that are eye-catching and dramatic. The sessions are relaxed and informal, and I look to work collaboratively with actors to bring their talent to the image.


Session

All sessions are based out of my home studio in Wallsend. There's no need to feel 'on the clock' as in some photoshoots. We will work together towards capturing images that are both authentic and dramatic, talking through each step as we go.

Using 'tethering' software, you'll see the images appear on the screen as they are taken. That way we can discuss what works, and what doesn't, choosing the direction that we want the photographs to go in. It also means there'll be no nasty surprises: you'll see the photographs as they are being taken, rather than waiting for the results after the session.

At the end of the session, you can look through all of the images and choose your favourites there and then. This means that you can leave the session confident that you have captured the right images for you.


Pricing

I try to keep pricing as affordable and as fair as possible. At the same time, my focus is on quality over quantity. I have spoken to many clients who have had poor experiences of paying large sums to photographers for many images, only to find that few of these were useable! As a result, I have developed a pricing scheme based on the number of images you want from the session.

As well as this, these images are ones that you select at the end of the photoshoot, so there are no nasty surprises when you receive your completed images.

For more information, please see my pricing page, which covers this in more detail.
