the session

The aim of the session is to produce high quality photographs that will really work for you and that you and your agent will be very happy with. I work in a relaxed and fun way to get the very best from you. You'll never feel rushed and there's always plenty of time to change your hair and tops etc.

I will photograph you using both natural daylight and studio lighting set -ups to give you a wide range of looks. I shoot digitally which allows the opportunity to view the images taken during the session on a monitor, enabling you to see how you look best for. Once we feel happy that we have enough photographs, together we will choose the photographs that will make up your contact sheet. The contact sheet will be a web gallery put onto the net the same day so that you and your agent can view your photographs and choose your favourites to be retouched.

 

what to wear

Actors bring along to the session tops that are neutral in colour, (black, grey and white) and not too busy with patterns or frills etc. Think about the necklines and how they will frame your face. Collared shirts look very different to round and V-necked tops but all can look great and give a different feel to a photograph. If you want to change your hair during the session or men, have a shave, bring what you need to do that. Makeup for acting headshots is best kept very natural and again this can be changed during the session if you want to have a different look. It's best not to wear jewellery.

 

dancer / models

Great styling is the key to a great dancer/model portfolio shoot. The more prepared the better the shoot. Put outfits together with accessories etc. You can also give me a call to discuss and compare thoughts and ideas for the shoot.
