Headshots

In this digital age, nearly all of us need a professional-looking headshot which is part of our personal brand. If you are a model, an actor, a writer or a performing artist of any kind, the right headshots can make the difference between whether you do or don’t advance in your chosen career. You can have all the talent in the world, but if no-one invites you to demonstrate those skills, it can be an uphill struggle. Even if you are not in the entertainment industry, however, the chances are you still need a good quality ‘head and shoulders image’ that shows you in your best light. Whether you are looking for a fresh new social media profile pic, a dating profile image, a likeness to accompany your CV or a photograph to go onto your website or blog, a professional headshot is a must. You could save yourself some money and use a mobile selfie, but do you really want that to be the first impression you make?!

Ideally, a good headshot should present ‘you on your best day’ to the wider world. It shouldn’t be Photoshopped to the point where it no longer looks like you, but gentle retouching can be used to address the odd blemish or two! You should aim to capture an expression that communicates the two magic qualities of all good headshots - confidence and approachability. If you are concerned that you don’t ooze those qualities from every pore, don’t worry; it’s my job to bring that out of you, and I have a wealth of experience, working with all kinds of people.

When you book in for a ‘Headshot’ session, you’ll have a few options available to you, depending on what you are looking for. If you’re unsure of which service best suits your needs then please get in touch and we can chat things through. Once we have a booking in place, I’ll provide you with everything you need so you can come along prepared for the session (what to wear, how many changes to bring, hair and make up suggestions etc.).

basic headshot session- £80

The simplest package involves a 30-45 min. shoot which offers time for up to two wardrobe changes, if required. As well as the session time, the cost includes 2 retouched images of your choice, selected from those taken (typically we may shoot over 100 images during that time !) which will be digitally delivered to you. If you would like additional retouched images from the collection, these can be produced at a cost of an additional £15 per image. This kind of session is ideal for most people, other than models, actors and performance artists who should consider the ‘Advanced Package’.

Travel, if required, will be billed separately but otherwise there are no additional costs. Turn around time for the delivery of images is 7 days, but often I will be able to provide them sooner.

Advanced headshot session - £140

This package is ideal if you are looking to build your portfolio as a professional entertainer, model or if you need a number of different looks rather than a simple profile image. Casting Directors, agencies and other employers have specific criteria that they look for when looking through headshots - format, angle of pose, expression - get any of those things wrong and it can be enough for you to lose out on a call-back. This kind of session, therefore, takes between 1 and 2 hours and will typically involve more than 200 images being taken. From these, we will look at them together and select the best 4, which will be retouched and sent to you digitally. If you would like additional retouched images from the collection, these can be produced at a cost of an additional £15 per image, although the consensus is that you shouldn’t aim to have more than 6 images in your portfolio - quality trumps quantity, every time!

Travel, if required, will be billed separately but otherwise there are no additional costs. Turn around time for the delivery of images is 7 days, but often I will be able to provide them sooner.

1/2 DAY RATE- £350

If you are representing a business or organisation that requires multiple headshots to be taken, I am able to manage ‘volume headshots’ on site as required. My half day rate provides up to 4 hours of photography and/or up to 15 subjects, each of whom will be provided with a single retouched image. Additional services include background extraction and bespoke branding as required. Please make a specific enquiry so that we can discuss your needs in more detail.

Travel, if required, will be billed separately but otherwise there are no additional costs. Turn around time for the delivery of images is 7 days, but often I will be able to provide them sooner.

full day rate - £600

If you have more than 15 subjects who require headshots or are running a conference or event where you would like a ‘drop-in’ service, my full-day rate may be most suited. For this service I am available for up to 8 hours of photographic work and each person imaged will be provided with a single retouched image. Typically I am able to offer 30 quality sessions within that time frame that don’t feel rushed and which allow the space needed to maintain excellent quality images. Additional services include background extraction and bespoke branding as required. Please make a specific enquiry so that we can discuss your needs in more detail.

Environmental Portrait

There are so many occasions which might call for a portrait to be taken - a graduation, a special birthday or anniversary, an engagement or just because you feel that you want a memory of a particular time and place in your life. I define an ‘environmental portrait’ as any photograph of a person which is being taken for its own sake and not for the specific branding reasons which usually require a headshot. It may involve just one person, a couple or a whole family. It could be taken in studio or it might be important that the portrait takes place in a particular setting. Whatever the occasion, if you would like to capture a moment in time, I will do my best to help make it happen. Once you make a booking, we’ll chat through what you are looking for and I can help guide you through your options, if you’re unsure at this stage.

One person portrait -£50

This package is ideal when you are looking for a single image of a person, whether it is for you or a loved one. The session time is usually 30 minutes and includes a digitally retouched file of your favourite image which will be emailed to you. If you like more than one of the photographs taken (typically I may take up to 50 in the session), additional retouched images can be produced at the cost of an additional £15 per image.

Travel, if required, will be billed separately but otherwise there are no additional costs. Turn around time for the delivery of images is 7 days, but often I will be able to provide them sooner.

couple portrait-£60

This is a popular package for engagements, couples who are renewing their wedding vows and siblings. The session time is usually 45 minutes to an hour and includes a single digitally retouched file of your favourite image which will be emailed to you. If you like more than one of the photographs taken (typically I may take up to 50 in the session), additional retouched images can be produced at the cost of an additional £15 per image.

Travel, if required, will be billed separately but otherwise there are no additional costs. Turn around time for the delivery of images is 7 days, but often I will be able to provide them sooner.

Group portrait- £80

This package is most typically selected by those looking for a family portrait or by organisations who want to celebrate a small team or department. The session time is usually 1 hour and includes a digitally retouched file of your favourite image which will be emailed to you. If you like more than one of the photographs taken (typically I may take up to 50 in the session), additional retouched images can be produced at the cost of an additional £15 per image. It should be noted that this package is for groups up to and including 10 people; should you want an image of a larger group, please make an enquiry and we can discuss your specific needs.
