    Whether you need a headshot for casting purposes, for your business website or you just want a great shot of yourself, you know a good headshot when you see one. You can't always put your finger on it but you will just want to keep looking at it. Of course, it should be technically correct e.g. good lighting and composition etc. - that's a given. But a powerful headshot, that will book you jobs, will connect with the viewer on an unconscious level. The viewer should 'feel' that a moment has been captured. They should connect with the emotion. You will look confident, relaxed and ooze charisma. Most importantly it will look like you. On a very good day! (To read more about this see the FAQ's page on my website).

    The Session

    Most people (even if they are supremely gorgeous) are very nervous in front of a stills camera. Pretty much everyone arrives saying the same thing, “I am sooo nervous/I am not photogenic/the last photographer said I have a wonky nose…” (Nice!) Etc.

    We will work past bad previous experiences, do relaxation exercises, play music and generally have a good time. I used to be an actor and remember what a bad headshot session was like - sitting on a chair in one position, with no direction and being told to “relax!”.

    So, I don’t do that. No one sits (unless you want to of course!). I direct a LOT. And I relax you. It won’t happen on its own. When you are relaxed and confident you will be at your most attractive and I will capture that. And yes, I can assist with make up if you need a bit of help! I am also a stickler for hair and will make sure it looks great in every shot before I take it. As I also shoot fashion and beauty, I am used to making people look their absolute best and I will do that with you. Sessions are great fun and I’m very good with “nervous patients” and "headshot phobics!" shall we say. I promise you WILL relax, you WILL be confident and you will LOVE your images!
