Do I need headshots?
In these days of endless social media selfies, professionally taken headshots will really make you stand out amongst your competition. Your head shot maybe as simple as a head shoulders shot taken against a plain background or you may want something that reflects what you do especially if you are an actor or singer.
Our headshot service starts with a consultation. This can be at the studio, over the telephone or we can meet in a cafe and discuss things over coffee. During our chat we will discuss a number of things.
First on the agenda is usually clothing choice and the image you want portray.
Your business will dictate what sort of clothing you may want to wear during your session. eg you may have a company uniform that defines the image of the business or you may prefer to wear a suit and tie if your business is quite formal. Musicians may like to bring their instruments or have their instruments in the photographs. We even have grand piano here - for any pianists that may require it.
We'll also discuss where your photographs will be taken. This can either be in the studio, outside or at your workplace. Your location choice will determine the look and feel of your images. You can choose multiple locations if the time allows and I can set up a mini studio at your workplace if you need both formal and candid images.
Hair and make-up services
You may want to consider the services of a professional hair and makeup artist who knows the best products to use for photography. We can offer the service here at the studio in our own make-up room with our trusted make-up artists. Having your hair and make-up done for you is also a real treat and helps you relax and feel more confident about having your headshot created.

Another consideration is the products you will need. What will these images be used for. Eg will you just need digital files to use on the website and for brochures.

Or if you are in the creative industries you may need some beautifully presented prints to show agents.
