I really enjoy being a professional photographer based in Guildford, Surrey. One of my specialities is taking actor’s headshots, particularly children. I love getting different expressions and working on capturing the real you. I had a lovely time meeting Tom last week for his headshots for Guildford School of Acting (GSA). We were so pleased with the final portraits and I am sure Tom will go far.
For Tom, and all my aspiring actors, my aim is to help you reach your highest casting potential, so here’s how it works….
I tend to do the headshot sessions in the garden of my home studio, although I am happy to discuss a location of your choice. There are some interesting backgrounds and it enables us to be comfortable and relaxed, getting to know each other which helps me bring out your true personality. I like to work with you to produce a stand out portrait that will get any Director’s attention!
The session lasts about 2 hours, during which time you are welcome to have a clothes change if you wish. Once we feel like we’ve got the shots we need, we head into the studio to load them up on to the computer. We then look through them together on a large screen, so you can decide on your favourites and I then edit them in front of you so you have control over the level of editing/retouching you may wish to have. If on the day, you find it too tricky to decide on your favourites, I can do a gallery for your agent to help you choose.
The session costs £150 (gallery is an additional £25), which includes 3 digital files ready for you to use for casting directors, agents, Spotlight, social media, websites or for printing etc. Additional files can be purchased for £35 each.
