portrait information

I shoot mainly London based actors and creatives but I am happy to shoot anyone in need of a beautiful, honest portrait. 

The aim of the session is to capture you, looking like you on a good day.  Usually we’ll start around 10.30am, we’ll have a chat, talk through your wardrobe options and what you want in a headshot. 

Everybody is different so we’ll start shooting and then review the pictures as we go along, to see what works for you.  

You can change your top several times and try your hair in different styles if you wish.

Adults

£275

We shoot until we're both certain we have enough of a variety of shots for you to choose from. I upload your session to a password protected gallery on my website where you can make your choices. Included in the price I give you four headshots in colour, that once retouched, I send to you digitally.

Students

£250

For students I set up my studio in your space or school. We shoot until we're both certain we have enough of a variety of shots for you to choose from. I upload your session to a password protected gallery on my website where you can make your choices. Included in the price I give you four headshots in colour, that once retouched, I send to you digitally.

 

Group bookings

£POA

I also do group bookings if you'd like me to come to your school/drama studio/office. I offer a very competitive rate for group bookings. Please get in touch for more details.

 

Retouching

£20 per image

Retouching can be a tricky and lengthy process but it's important that (especially for actors), in real life you look like you do in your photo. The retouching I offer is blemish and stray hair removal, colour balancing and cropping.

 

FAQs

 

  • Where are you based?

I'm based in Walthamstow, London.

 

  • What do I need to prepare?

Your clothes, your hair, your make up and your skin. Make sure you get plenty of sleep and drink plenty of

water in the days leading up to your shoot.

 

  • What clothes should I have ready?

Plain colours. Simple necklines. We don't want to take the focus away from your face so nothing fussy or

patterned or bright. No buttons down the front of t-shirts, no visible chest hair on men. No sleeveless tops

and nothing see through. If you're unsure we can discuss more on the day.

 

  • How long will does a session last?

Roughly a couple of hours

 

  • How quickly can I see the photos?

Either the same day or early the next morning I upload your session to a password protected gallery on my

website that you can share with whoever you wish.

 

  • How and when do I get the finished photos?

I send high and low res versions to you digitally and aim to have them to you within a week.

 

  • How much retouching do you do?

I apply my colour treatment but the retouching I do to your face is minimal. I remove anything that isn't

permanent and stray hairs but it's important that when you walk through the door at a casting or an

interview you look as you do in the photo.

 

  • Can I share a session with someone else?

I think it's best to focus on your session only with no distractions.

 

  • How do I book you?
