Whether it's for business, your Spotlight entry, your website or Facebook, a great head and shoulders portrait is a lovely (and very useful) thing to have. I specialise in black and white portraits that reflect who you are, and show you at your very best.
What to expect from your headshot session
All my headshots are taken on location - we'll go for a walk outdoors, finding interesting backgrounds and the best natural light. I use these elements, along with some simple positioning, to ensure that we achieve the most flattering portraits with the minimum of fuss.
I work hard to ensure that your portrait session is a fun and enjoyable experience. We take our time and chat as we work so that I am able to get to know you a little; this helps us to get photographs that reflect who you are and that show you at your very best. There is no pressure to 'smile for the camera' - by chatting and enjoying ourselves, the smiles come naturally and, over the course of the shoot, we will get a variety of different moods to your set of images.
How to make the most of your shoot
To help achieve a great set of photos, I recommend that you avoid wearing white, or graphic patterns (such as checked shirts), or anything that has a strong contrast to it. Where possible, I suggest that you wear something with sleeves. For women, tops with very low-cut necklines are best avoided.
If required, we can add variety to your images through a change of clothing - perhaps wearing a suit for some more formal images, then changing into a t-shirt or casual shirt.
Extended portfolio shoots
If you would like some full-length shots in addition to head and shoulders shots, I am happy to arrange an extended portfolio shoot. These sessions take a bit longer and there will be more variety to your images. We will approach the shoot in the same way, retaining a fun and relaxed feel.
Presentation, pricing and products
After your headshot session, I will present you with approximately twenty images; about forty images from an extended portfolio session. You will be provided with a web gallery to review your images, which you can share with your colleagues, agent, friends and family.
Headshot sessions start at £395 which includes the session, three high-resolution digital files for your own printing and a web gallery of images. Extended portfolio sessions start at £475. Sessions are available Monday - Friday during daylight hours (I am happy to do evening shoots in the summer months).
Additional digital files can be purchased at £75 each. Alternatively fine art prints of your pictures can be purchased, starting at £45; please contact me for further information. All prices include VAT.
