Headshots make a great first impression.

In todays world, we have a digital identity. It's like your online business card. It's where people find you and it puts a face with a name. Performers have known the value of a great headshot for a long time and now companies and entrepreneurs are starting to understand it too.

Even if your headshot is just going on LinkedIn or Facebook, social media profiles with professional headshots make you look... Well, professional.

For some people (mostly actors and models, who by the way are great fun to work with) being in front of a camera is quite natural, for others (the rest of us!) it can be quite daunting. I like to keep my sessions relaxed and together we will capture a series of expressions that convey confidence and approachability that you can use for different things.

"After wanting to improve my LinkedIn profile I employed Paul to take my Headshot. I was a little nervous about sitting in a studio and being in front of the camera, but from the moment I arrived Paul made me feel at ease. I was really impressed with his professionalism and his his extensive knowledge of lighting and colours.
My head shot turned out better than I ever imagined, and I have returned to Paul for more casual head shots for different applications, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul."

"Having always been a little bit paranoid that my LinkedIn profile picture didn't reflect the professionalism of my role, I visited Paul. Despite my initial nerves at having my photo taken, Paul was very friendly and set my mind at ease straight away. I was really happy with the photograph that Paul produced and use it for a range of websites. Since doing so, I've seen an increase in business. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone considering updating their LinkedIn headshot - it could be more valuable than you think!"

"Thanks for yesterday Paul. I don't think I'm photogenic but the photo you took is probably the best photo I've ever seen of me. Brilliant! Thanks again."

Q: Why do professionals need a set of headshots? A: In todays world, we have a digital identity. It’s like your calling card. It's where people find you and it puts a face with a name. Performers have known the value of a great headshot for a long time and now companies and personal brands are starting to understand it too. Anyone who is entrepreneurial needs a headshot, even if it’s just going to sit on LinkedIn or Facebook. Social media profiles without headshots look ridiculous.

Great Headshots. Talent is the most important thing you need if you're an actor. The next most important thing you need is a set of great headshots 
          to show to casting directors and agencies.

Kids Great Headshots...

There are many things to consider when organising headshots for your rising star. Some of the most frequently asked questions from parents have been, how many shots do we need? What should my child wear? What kind of background do you use? Do you re-touch the photos? Should we have black and white or colour?

Contact me and I'll give you my thoughts and some of the feedback I've had from leading casting directors in the industry.

"Highly recommend! Professional with a personal touch, relaxed, fun friendly, happy to give advice and photographs are stunning. We'll definitely be visiting again for my son's updates."
