My approach

In my headshot style, I aim to bridge the gap between the traditional headshot and editorial portrait. As a former actor, I understand the delicate balance of having a headshot that you're really happy with and that also truly represents the you that walks into the audition room. I am less interested in a flawless image of you looking your best and more concerned with conveying a real sense of who you are. Often, people come to me when I have taken a shot of someone they know and they say, ‘I thought you really captured the essence of them’’. I’m thrilled when that happens as I feel that’s what I’m aiming for - a photo that gives a casting director or potential employer not only a clear representation of how you look but also a glimpse of your personality.

The shoot

I work from my house in East Dulwich where I have an indoor and outdoor set up. My main preference is to work outside with natural light and we do this a courtyard area in my house which has fantastic light and I work with additional light sources to create the final look for your shots. When you book your session I send you advice on what to bring and we work through various outfit choices so you have several looks to choose from.

Your gallery

Within 48 hours of your session your shots will be available in an online gallery. This is an edited selection of our shoot with approx 60-80 photos which I think represents the best work from the session. The gallery will be divided up into series based on outfits/looks etc. The link can be easily emailed to agents so you can both make your choices.

Retouching

You can then choose 6 final shots which I will retouch and deliver to you as high resolution images. Retouching is a delicate process which aims to get rid of unwanted details without making you look too airbrushed. It also involves colour grading the image. In this shot - left is straight out of camera and right is the finished version. Natasha had amazing skin anyway but we sorted out any shine/shadow caused by the natural light/reflectors, flyway hair and overall skin tone. The result is not radically different but ‘pops’ a bit more. You will be very involved in this final process; I will send you the images to review and you have an opportunity to feedback so we get it just right for you.
