Author Headshot Photography London

22Mar

I am photographing an increasing number of author portrait publicity headshots here at my North London studio. Authors need portrait photographs for book jackets and publicity pieces, for use in magazines and online and so having a really good headshot photo is a must. These headshots will be so important in a world that is increasingly lived online – websites, social media, LinkedIn, they all require a great portrait.

I have set up my North London studio to provide a good selection of images within a short session – we spend around 45 minutes to an hour taking pictures, which makes the headshot portrait sessions quick and efficient.

Maigaelle was an absolute joy to photograph, a total natural in front of the camera and I had such a wonderful time hearing about her forthcoming novel, it sounds right up my street so I’m looking forward to getting that on pre-order as soon as it is announced. It will be a wonderful summer read and is due for release in June.

It’s definitely one of the things I love most about headshot portrait photography – chatting to my clients about their jobs. I have this amazing opportunity to learn about so many different industries and I love hearing how people have arrived at this point where they need a portrait. As an avid reader I find this to be particularly fascinating with authors, hearing about the creative process is incredibly interesting.

It’s always a pleasure taking headshots and the sessions are always really fun. If you think you might be interested in a session then do get in touch and we can have a chat about what you are looking for and put something in the diary.
