    After an experience with a photographer that I would rather forget, I was apprehensive about getting some headshots to say the least. I read carl proctor’s advice this time and used the headshothunter site, both have information worth reading as has CCP. I had spotted Sheila Burnetts’ entry on CCP and then found it on Headshothunter. I already liked her photos and hoped she would be someone I could work with. Sheila has a beautiful flat in a period block on the 4th floor. The stairs were the only uphill struggle that day. From the moment Sheila opened the door my apprehension started to slip away and I felt like I was speaking to a friend. Hopefully all photographers know how to use their cameras and lights and are proficient editors but knowing how to use your subject, well that discipline is unobtainable for some and for the few that master it, only do so by study and experience. Sheila immediately read the angst in my eyes, sat me down made a joke then made me tea. After that, like a director that finds the performance within you that you would never have found alone, she gently takes you by the mind and eases you through the shoot. She is meticulous, patient and seems to know immediately what she is looking for and you will know when she’s got it. When I received the contact sheet (the very next day) I was overwhelmed by the amount of useable shots, like most actors I find it so easy to see fault in any stills I see my self in but with hers they are just me and the face I see is the same one I see in the mirror, except with a sparkle that has given me more confidence than any headshot has before them. Thank-you Sheila you are an Artist.
