Thanks for booking in! The aim of your headshot is to get one strong portrait which will be the image casting directors and directors will view over the next couple of years. It needs to be striking and look like you on your best day. In advance of the shoot, have a look at portraits and headshots you like, and for the tech savvy, make a Pintrest board. Feel free to send images over in advance but keep the words to a minimum, I’m dyslexic, and an image speaks a thousand words. Have a think about your casting bracket, the type of work is your agent putting you up for and ideal future roles. It might be a good idea to have a chat to your agent in advance about what you both want. Clothes Please bring along two or three different options and we can have a play. You will know the colours and styles that suit you best, but do have a good think about what's going to work best in advance. Hair and Make-Up Some people are confident with their hair and make-up and that’s great. If not, then you couldvisit somewhere like Blow before the shoot. Bring along any hair styling products you use so you can make adjustments whilst we are working. If you'd like to book a make-up artist, I have relationships with a few local makeup artists who are great. If you want me to see if they are free then let me know. I arrange those relatively last minute as it tends to be a small job for them. Rates from £50 - £80ph depending on artist. Men. Make sure your skin is well moisturised and if you need to use any cover up that it matches your skin tone. I can retouch out blemishes but it is easier and better if you do the preliminary cover up work first. Remember your shaving products if you’d like to shave half-way through the shoot. Headshots £350. At my studio or on location. 3 hour headshot shoot + upload to dropbox within 48 hours + 3 images retouched in colour. Headshots and PR £420. At my studio or on location.

Cancellation Policy I try to be a flexible as possible as I understand the demands placed on actors, but I ask for48 hours notice to move a shoot. If you have an audition I may be able to move your shoot earlier or later in the day dependent on the light and the time of year. I understand sometimes things come in last minute but please be sensitive to the fact that if you are booked in, then I have paid for childcare for the period for the shoot and retouching / admin time.
