Actor headshots

Level up your portfolio with a new set of high quality headshots. I take the time to understand what you want to say with your images so that together we can get the shots you need and the opportunities you want.

I create a calm environment, where we can experiment with light and work with breath to create different energies and states, producing engaging images with true gravity and depth of expression.  The result is a set of arresting headshots that will resonate with casting directors to leave a lasting impression.

Business headshots

Boost your profile and elevate your personal brand with a high quality headshot. Improve your LinkedIn presence, promote your freelance business, and leave a lasting, confident first impression.

The quality of your photo can make or break your credibility, and in the age of scrolling and skim reading, your profile photo is at least as important as the words on your resume.

Recruiters are 50% more likely to approach a candidate that has a LinkedIn photo. Make it a good one!

What to expect

Please see my video on what to expect during your shoot! My studio is in Finsbury Park, North London. I take some time ahead of the shoot to understand your motivations and what you want to get out of the experience, as we relax into it. In terms of how to prepare:

Before the shoot

To help you think about what you want to get across in your shoot, it can be useful to write a list of adjectives, feelings and characters you want to embody, for example, fearless/charming/Shiv from Succession. Don’t worry too much about this, we can experiment as we go.

I love working to music, so please bring along your playlists! I also advise drinking plenty of water in the days ahead of the shoot, it will keep you looking and feeling bright!


I recommend using a similar amount of makeup that you would wear to an audition or a job. Got a blemish? No worries at all, it is easier to edit out spots and marks than make up so do not panic and cover it up too heavily! I always advise applying lip balm the night before and the morning of the shoot.


I completely understand the importance flexibility so if you need to reschedule, please get in touch ASAP and we can find another date. I ask for a £50 deposit on booking; this is non-refundable but can be transferred to a new date if rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Any rescheduling within 24 hours of the shoot will incur the full session fee.


Bring along options – think different colours, necklines and textures. Bring your favourite clothes and your confidence will shine through!
